Create a new word doc and write an analysis/reflection on sentence focus.
Task 1: Your subjects: Simple or complex?
Examples from your text
Give 2 example sentences from your “ writing sample document”: one sentence with a simpler, shorter subject. and one sentence with a longer, more complex subject. How does the sentence with the more complex subject sound/feel? Is it smooth and easy to understand? Or could it benefit from editing?
Your style and your goals
In your writing overall, do you tend to frontload sentences with long, complex subjects packed with lots of information? Or do you tend to use short, simple subjects?
Your writing goals
Set an editing goal for the class: Would you like to practice adding more complexity and variety to your subjects? Or would you like to practice trimming down your subjects?
Task 2: Your subjects: Concrete or abstract?
Examples from your text
Give 2 example sentences: One sentence with a stronger, more concrete subject and one sentence with a more abstract subject. How does the sentence with the more abstract subject sound/feel? Is it clear? Or could it benefit from editing.
Your style
In your writing overall, do you tend to choose “strong” subjects (people and/or concrete things)? Or do you tend to choose subjects that are abstract?
Your writing goals
Set an editing goal for the class: Would you like to practice making your subjects more concrete? Or would you like to practice creating abstract subjects that sound more academic?
Task 3: Your subjects: Use of “There”
Example from your text
Give us 2 example sentences with a there-expression (there is/are/was/were) as subject. (If you have no example sentence you can skip this question.) Is the “there” absolutely necessary? Or could the sentences be revised to include a better subject-verb pair?
Your style
In your writing overall, do you tend to use there-expressions as subjects? Or do you avoid them?
Your writing goals
Is this an editing goal for your writing in this class? Or is it a non-issue for you?
Task 4: Your verbs: Active/passive
Example from your text
Give us 2 example sentences that use passive subject-verb pairs. Are the passives necessary? Or could they benefit from editing?
Your style
In your writing overall, do you tend to use a lot of passive. Do you tend to overuse passive verbs?
Your writing goals
Set an editing goal for this class: Would you like to reduce unnecessary passive verbs in your writing? Or would you like to learn more about passives and possibly include them more in your writing?
Task 5: Other writing goals
What aspects of grammar/editing/style do you find challenging or mysterious? Explain. What would you like to work on in this class?
