This is the final portfolio for the semester and I feel I have come a long way in terms of expanding my background on literature. Throughout all of these portfolios I have covered a variety of topics from plays, poems, reading strategies, and different types of literature such as digital. This portfolio adds to the rest as it explores my experience with digital literature to plays and so on.
One post that I went into great length is my post on Writing About Literature. In this post I talked about some of the main take aways I took from this course and what I learned that expands my horizon with literature.
My post on electronic literature samples also fits in this category. I feel this post went into tremendous detail about the particular samples I chose to work with and also my experiences with them.
The post that best fits a risk I took this semester was my post on the electronic literature sampler. Here I talked about my experience with something that was sort of new to me and that was exploring multiple electronic literature samples.
Another post that I feel took a risk was the blog on wit. For this post I talked about my reaction to reading the new play (new for me) Wit. The material covered in the play was new to me so I thought this category was best.
One post that I feels meets this category best is my wildcard post. In this post I talked about what I have learned in Writing About Literature and I tied it into a paper I wrote on the play Wit.
My post on writing about literature I feel can go in this category as well. For this post I talked about all the sources that helped contribute to my learning in Writing About Literature.
For this category I did not get any new comments since the last portfolio but I did happen to leave comments during the peer review process when working on our draft papers. The comments I emailed to my peers in a word doc I feel went into great depths to help other students write stronger papers.
Most of my posts this time around were on time. Although the post on wit was finished the same day as this is being written. But a few post were also early as well. I feel for this category I have grown but always struggle with one or two post that seem to come a bit later than most.
For this category, I feel I did not have a lot of post that fit this category. My post this time around I feel went into detail and shows that I have grown in this area showing that I got post done to show my willingness to engage with the course material.
For this portfolio, I feel it shows my goals, strengths and weaknesses during a busy time in the semester. I feel the post I put for each category respectively meets the category description on canvas. One area I seem to growing in is depth, riskiness and intertextuality. All while timeliness is a category I seem to struggle with this semester and past semester. I think scheduling out does help but sometimes I get caught up on other class assignments. My goal for future classes and this blog is to really get post in on time because a head start is better than posting late.
