Unformatted text preview: Self‐Evaluation Project The purpose of this project is to help you think about what you need to do to be successful in one of your courses. You are asked to analyze several aspects of one course that you are enrolled in this semester and reflect on what you need to do to be successful. This project is worth 100 points. This project is due on March 25th, but may be submitted earlier. The project should include: 1) Evaluation of the Textbook/Materials A form for evaluating textbooks will be handed out, but you may need to improvise for other materials. In any case, this section should end with a brief analysis of how well suited the material is to you and what you need to do to successfully use the material. 2) Instructor Interview For this section, you’ll interview your instructor to find out what you need to do to be successful in this course.

You should highlight the study time devoted to this course. This section should end with an analysis of why you selected those study hours. Additional study schedules are available on iLearn. 4) Analysis of the Class You’ll use your syllabus and your experience in the class to complete this section. You’ll explain the requirements, assessments, format, and objectives of the course. You’ll discuss what you are well suited to and what you’ll need to adapt to. You will match the course objectives to your goals and specify your focus for the course. Lastly, you’ll discuss your strategies for doing well in the course. 5) Making Connections In this section, you’ll identify what you have learned in English and other courses that could help you do well in the course. You may also make connections to other books you have read or other previous experiences that you can draw on to be successful in this class. 6) Action Plan Last semester, we did a little work with Action Plans. You can find these in the course reader for fall. Please use the Action Plan format to identify an academic problem you faced in this course, how you planned to solve it (strategies), and how it worked out. Your write‐up should include a description of the problem, a proposed solution, and a reflection on your performance. ...
