Reflective Commentary “Arguing for a Grade” Name:___________________________________________________ The purpose of a reflective commentary is for you to illustrate your thinking and strategy as you worked through the essay project this week, and to start to think about your own writing process in terms of the steps we discussed this week. Take 4-5 minutes to answer each question. • Why did you choose the position/stance (FOR or AGAINST) that you did? • What information did you use to support your argument and why? • What effect(s) did you want your paper to achieve? • Which parts of the process were most helpful to you? Which were less helpful? Why?
