Metacognition Essay

We'll set a due date next week.

Start thinking about the process you use in your thinking this weekend. Here is the assignment in case you misplaced yours. Have a great weekend.
Using the Golding essay Thinking as a Hobby as a starting point, write an essay examining your own thinking at the current time. Unlike Golding, do not seek to trace your thinking over time, but deeply examine the state of your thinking now. Analyze how you deal with pressure, stress, difficult intellectual problems, writing, etc. in order to get at how you think. You do not need to use Golding’s classifications, though you may if you find them helpful.

Word Limit: 900 words +/- 10%

Due: September 27, 2011

Before you begin to write, consider the following:
  • Your rhetorical situation: Speaker, Subject, Audience relationships; context; and purpose 
  • A proposed overall arrangement (of course you can use multiple arrangements if needed) 
Points: 40
Grading will focus holistically on the following elements:
  • Depth of analysis 
  • Organization 
  • Sentence structure 
  • Diction/Voice 
  • Conventions
