The goals of LART 250 are for you to “demonstrate the reading and writing process and metacognitive awareness in a combined reading and writing portfolio of your strongest work.” To practice for the final portfolio, you will write a 500 word post-write reflecting on your process and choices in producing the literacy narrative essay.
This assignment is also a part of your Essay 2 (Freire Essay) grade. You must complete this assignment satisfactorily to get a grade on your essay. Not completing this assignment means you will get a non-passing grade on your essay for EWRT 1A.
