Notes and Discussion Questions:1: Award winning articles
In class we will review lists of titles of award winning articles and books from CCCC and MLA. Then each student will discuss individual subdiscipline awards and compare. Discuss trends, commonalities, implications for current research.
What makes an article award-winning? What makes a good article? We will discuss article evaluation: (abstract, introduction, methods, discussion of literature, analysis, conclusion AND discipline/interdisciplinarity, argument/thesis, significance, purpose).
As a group we will create an article rubric to use in evaluating articles; we will use Google Docs on Canvas collaborations. To get started, please see the criteria outlined in the workshop guidelines on the syllabus.
Outline your article based on the categories discussed. Are are the parts represented? Where are the strengths? Where are the weaknesses? What do you need to add? What might you reduce?
