Importance of Active Reading and Analysis
in this journal, reflect on the importance of active reading and analysis by further revisiting the article you selected for Writing Notes. Please note that you will not be doing a deep dive analysis yet—that will come next week. For now, simply consider the importance of analysis and how it will help you write your final essay.
To prepare for this assignment, please re-read your selected article and your notes from Module 1. Then, either using the MindEdge Notebook or a Word Document, answer the following questions:
- Who do you think your audience will be in your critical analysis essay? Describe this audience, and explain how they would benefit from any insights produced from your analysis of your selected article.
- Why is analysis so important for your selected reading? How will it help your audience understand the author’s goal in a clearer, more captivating way?
- After re-reading your article and notes from Module 1, what do you believe is your goalin analyzing your selected article? Will you provide additional context to help your audience understand the importance of the author’s goal, or will you use your essay as an opportunity to persuade your audience that the author’s goal is incorrect?
In total, the reflection should be three fully developed paragraphs (5-8 sentences each) in length (consider one paragraph per question).
That is the notes from module 1 that are needed for this Assignment
In “Some Lessons From The Assembly Line” by Andrew Braaksma he talks about working in a factory and going to college. His main purpose in my opinion for writing the article was to get people to appreciate education. One reason I believe that appreciation of education was because he said “All the advice and public-service announcements about the value of an education that used to sound trite now ring true”. Another reason is when he said “My lessons about education are learned at the expense of those who weren’t fortunate enough to receive one”. Here he was talking to a co worker and learned a valuable lesson about education from someone who didn’t get an education for whatever reason. Another reason I believe that this articles main purpose was for people to appreciate education was because Braaksma said “How and when I learned these lessons, however, has inspired me to make the most of my college years before I enter the real world for good”. He means that it doesn’t matter when he learned these lessons about appreciating education but when he did he made the most of it.
The first time I read the article I didn’t really get the purpose of it. But once re-read it and got to understand it more I started to make connections with whats going on in my life. Pretty much the same deal as Braaksma but I work full time and take online classes, but before that I didn’t appreciate education and didn’t want to go to school. The authors intended audience in my opinion was high school students. I think he chose that demographic because he wants kids to appreciate education before he did even though he learned to appreciate it from someone who wasn’t fortunate enough to go to college in the first place.
