  • To be an effective academic writer, you must take on the right “habits of mind.” According to Greene and Lidinsky, academic writers:
    • Make inquiries–observe, ask questions, examine alternatives;
    • Seek and value complexity–resist binary thinking, consider all topics open for discussion;
    • See writing as a conversation–and demonstrate sensitivity to those involved in the conversation;
    • Understand that writing is a process–a continual process of discovering ideas, drafting, and revising; and
    • Reflect on their own learning and writing.

In your initial post, use these 5 categories to analyze one of the “Becoming Academic” narratives from Ch. 1: either Coates’s “Between the World and Me,” Rodriguez’s “Scholarship Boy,” or Graff’s “Disliking Books.” Then, compare your experience as a learner to the experience of the author whose work you have analyzed. Make sure that your post does all of the following:

  • Examine how the author displays at least three of the five habits of mind; use specific examples from the text to illustrate your analysis
  • Compare your experience as a learner to the experience of the author
  • Quotes the article you are analyzing at least once, using MLA or APA guidelines for in-text citations of the quoted material

Your discussion post should be around 250-350 words and should directly quote the article you are analyzing at least once. Use MLA or APA guidelines to create an in-text citations.
