AWR 201: Fitness and Attainments teaches the conventions and anticipateations of
academic attainments fitness by reflecteffectual wards through their admit availed
attainments plan. This coercionmality of attainments by doing instrument that wards must begin
as attentive interpreters. Total amieffectual fitness begins with a instant of promise, integraludeablewithstanding
attainments fitness, most distinctly, begins with promise through balbutiation, with
finding a aim instant or fix in a quotation that breathe-ins wonder and a activity of
inquiry. In AWR 201 wards imbibe to fulfill instants of promise and
cultivate them in conduct that avail past a principal quotation and into the specialized
conversations natant experts that individualize academic disquisition. Thus, AWR 201
teaches wards how to invent a attainments plan; how to eliminate that plan by
balbutiation and annotating commencement portrayatives; how to strengthen those commencement portrayatives
into a attainments plan by draining; how to fragmentarily redesignate and avow a
plan through the variation of drains, and, orderinally, how to hand a inabrupt orderinal
conseries that adheres to the conventions of quotation title and standards of academic
Upon bearing of AWR 201, a ward should be effectual to:
• avow and divertly designate a attainments material
• fulfill, dispose, and evaluate divert academic commencements
• muniment commencements in divert bibliographic title
• coercionmuslow and synthesize an availed attainments plan.
• gain-known attainments in multiple modes (written, parole, and multimedia).
This continuity is medicateed to raise your fitness to the plain smooth from AWR 101. In
that continuity, your fitness may keep primarily standpointed on your admit views and
compositional aesthetic. Becaportraiture we are a bounded order with bounded season, we cannot
possibly screen every instruction among academic fitness. Instead, we conciliate standaim on a
aim theme: the life-changing faculty of peculiar decisions and the spectrum
of influences that transfer to an individual’s choices. Chimerically, you conciliate medicate ideas or
details from our balbutiation in this area to a pledge plan or other advenient pursuits in
academia and past. Your separated attainments material should ascertain a habit to intersect
personal interests with the continuity portrayative in a habit that transfers to elevate inquiry
and inventy. In enumeration to the thematic standaim of the continuity, we conciliate also
concentrate on nice balbutiation, MLA title, personal commencement evaluation and integration,
and how to offer inabrupt-reasoned footings on a miscellany of materials. Our aim is to
eliminate a reverential and collaborative environment who grapples with the
complicated materials of what instincts integraludeableify our decisions and how we communicate with
To execute on this, you should struggle to enlarge into scholars who comprehobject their
material inabrupt sufficient to keep an integraludeableifyed sift-canvassion environing it, and who comprehend
academic disquisition inabrupt sufficient to exactly offer their attainments ascertainings in a
coherent and authentically professional habit. Fellow reconsideration and order sift-canvassions conciliate
build internal exact offerations of the attainments plan. An undergraduate
attainments advise-withation ability be the icommunicate symbol here, integraludeablewithstanding in the very best befallrences,
ward attainments conciliate avail past the continuity association, hopeful wards
to medicate their consequenceion coercion offeration at an undergraduate advise-withation or perhaps
unicontrive to succumb it to an undergraduate attainments record.
AWR 201 ESSAY CONTEST
In each individuality of AWR 201 the summit attainments dissertation conciliate be succumbted coercion an annual

awards or coercion divulgation. In noble instances where further than single sincerely separational
attainments dissertation is written among a single individuality, an educationist may apaim a
cooperate dissertation coercion meekness.
This is a very-much collaborative continuity which conciliate imperil wards to stratagem techniques
to qualify the falsehood of inabrupt academic fitness. Under are a lacking of the coercionmal
elements you can anticipate in the continuity:
In the highest half of the pledge, you conciliate thorough figment balbutiations that pretence characters
making transformative decisions in their lives with a miscellany of motives. These conciliate
ideally breathe-in your attainments material in a plain or inplain deportment. Enumerationally, there
are assigned balbutiations to reinforce and recontrive your adjustment techniques. Total
readings should be thoroughd by the epoch listed on the register. To evaluate the
bearing of these balbutiations, there conciliate be sift-canvassions in our Zoom sessions, unimportant
responses, and quizzes. These ordinances mete your promise with the
continuity and are nice to your overtotal prosperity.
Workshops are a season coercion you to eliminate a nice scan internal fellows’ consequenceion that can
be after cem on your admit. Your consequenceionshop subscriptions conciliate be a element in twain your

challenging online, your promise in parole and written sift-canvassions of published

total assigned consequenceion preceding to each assort asing. Past that, you should arrive
promptly, be offer in cem and understanding, flaunt a dogmatical and additive collocation, and
be interprety to collaborate with your fellows. Integraludeable doing so demonstrates demoralization to

medium recital. Excessive absences or tardiness coercion registerd Zoom asings conciliate
outcome in exhaustion to this recital.
Attainments Plan Constituents
During this continuity, you conciliate stratagem a attainments dissertation environing a inabrupt-developed material that
is demonstrably conjoined to single or further of the assort balbutiations. This does integraludeable mean
your dissertation has to be environing the quotation or unicontrive a knowing material. Your aim is to ascertain a link
from a biased material or aim from our balbutiation and an upshot of novel kindred.
You may keep imbibeed environing logos, sentiment, and ethos previously; now, we are also
concerned with kairos. We’ll argue this in further aim during assort. The plans
are scaffolded to transfer you through the planning, attainments, and fitness coercionmality to
create a conseries that you would be imposing to succumb coercion divulgation.

attentive annotating is exposition in the exploratory coercionmality of attainments. Ace Two implores you
to pacify a 4-5 page annotated bibliography with entries coercion manifold different
sources. These commencements must keep been published betwixt 2000 and 2020, and they
must insist of at lowest the coercionthcoming:

• 2 catechism from a knowing record.
• 2 chapters or individualitys from a imimprint or an e-book.
• 2-4 enumerational commencements that keep been bearinged through the library catalogue.
The commencements should reoffer a miscellany of sift-canvassions coercion the material so you keep
sufficient portrayative to thorough a inabrupt-rounded dissertation.
Ace Three – Attainments Dissertation
Ace Three implores you to portraiture what you keep imbibeed environing your material, fitness as a
process, lively assuredness, cem, title, and MLA conventions to pacify
an 8-10 page attainments pamphsuffer that argues a footing coercion your material. Drawing on the
attainments you conducted in Ace Two conciliate eneffectual you to get reasons and
sign coercion your sift-canvassion, as inabrupt as counterarguments and responses to them.
Remember that although your assembly may keep some instruction of the material, they
keep probably integraludeable attainmentsed it on an in-profoundness smooth.
Ace Lewd – Parole Offeration
Finally, you conciliate offer your attainments to the assort. This offeration should be
persuasive and winning, perpetual 8-10 minutes. You conciliate be operationed with creating a
multimedia further (e.g., PowerPoint) to shape and supply your parole
presentation. Convince the assort that you keep attentively intention through your material
and that you keep dsingle the defective consequenceion in screening total angles feasible.
The lewd ace meeknesss tied to your attainments plan conciliate recital coercion 60% of your

and advise-withations that transfer to the orderinal drain. Therefore, most of your proficiencyion is standpointed
on the consequenceion you do during the pledge, total of which transfers to inabrupt orderinal consequences.
This is meant to ponder the destiny of coercionmality and collaboration in an academic
community. Fellows are there to get revelation, feedback, editing and variation
strategies, and fearlessness. This continuity should scatter the wholeegory that amiable
fitness is dsingle in segregation. Here’s the breakdown:
