From my discussion with Dr. Wharton, I was able to get a better understanding of my progress in the class and how I can improve. More specifically, we agreed that one of the areas that I need improvement in is utilizing multi-modality in my major projects. In order to actually address this issue, I plan on incorporating different modes other than text to engage the reader, such as pictures, videos, and links. Furthermore, I plan to revise my first reading response and BED to reinforce this skill and earn class participation points. Additionally, we also discussed my current reading response, which I found to be very helpful and reassuring. Going along with this theme, I was also reassured of the points I have earned so far in the class. According to Dr. Wharton, our upcoming projects are going to be major values, which makes me feel a little anxious. Overall, I really enjoyed my conference and left with a feeling of renewed confidence in my past work and a motivation to perform even better on the upcoming assignments. One question I forgot to ask is what is the glossary option for points? I didn’t seem to catch what that entails at the beginning of the semester.
Thank you so much, Dr. Wharton.
