April 11, 2021
Brenda I. Belcher

Week 4 – Discussion

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above and the Grading Criteria link below for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

 Response to Reading: Time Management and Planning [WLO: 1] [CLO: 2]

In this discussion, you’ll continue to refine your writing process. Through this discussion, you will develop a thoughtful time management plan for future writing assignments in college.

Prepare

Review the discussion grading criteria and read “Chronic Procrastination: Life Beyond Ineffective Time Management,” written by Joseph R. Ferrari in Chapter 4 Summary and Resources, along with Chapter 4 of College Writing Handbook. Use an active reading strategy, such as SQ3R, PQRST, or KWL, to comprehend the words and their meaning (See section 1.4 Reading Academic Materials).

Reflect

After reading Chapter 4, including “Chronic Procrastination,” reflect upon your experiences in this class. Think about your current writing process and how it may work for you (or against you) in future classes. Consider your biggest time management concerns and how you may be able to address them in the future.

Write

Describe your experience in class thus far. Did you feel organized and prepared or did you feel disorganized and unprepared?

Share your time-management techniques and how you may do things differently in the future. Identify strategies and ideas from Chapter 4 in College Writing Handbook that you will use to complete papers in your upcoming courses.

As you discuss time management, share your response to Ferrari’s article. Could you relate to the chronic procrastinators described in the article? Did the research surprise you? What did you learn from the article?

Remember to cite the source in APA style. For example: Ferrari (2011/2018) said that “adult procrastinators more often claim they are ‘night’ people” (para. 8), which I could relate to.While Ferrari (2011/2018) suggested that procrastination is related to time perception, I feel that my procrastination is not related to my perceptions of the past or the future.End your post with a proper reference citation in APA style, too: Ferrari, J. R. (2018). Chronic procrastination: Life beyond ineffective time management. In A. Garten, College Writing Handbook (pp. 155-159). San Diego, CA: Bridgepoint Education. (Original work published 2011)

Respond to Peers

You are expected to engage in this discussion on multiple days throughout the week, Tuesday through Monday. Log in frequently from your computer or through the mobile app to stay engaged.

As you respond to your classmates’ posts, discuss your unique experience with time management. Address your classmates’ experiences and work together to decide if a new strategy is needed. Help your classmates apply the course materials to their life to improve time management and prepare for the future. You are invited to share relevant audio, video, or images in your responses.

Be sure to participate in meaningful conversation with multiple classmates in this discussion, which will close at the end of the learning week. This discussion will be assessed on a 10-point scale and is worth 5% of your final grade.
