Next week, you will begin to draft the review of the 10 scholarly sources gathered thus far, and this writing will utilize the conventions expected for literature review writing. So this week, you’ll appraise voice, tone, and style specific to a sophisticated literature review for doctoral-level research.
For this assignment, you will:
- Identify a scholarly manuscript you have written within the last year. The easiest choice would be an essay you have written for a course, though you are welcome to use something else. If you are not sure, check with your instructor early in the week.
- Appraise your scholarly writing readiness by marking your scores on the Voice, Tone, and Style rubric available in the Books and Resources for this week.
- Ensure that you complete the Justification column by providing evidence from your own manuscript which you selected. In other words, note why you scored your writing the way you did for each criterion.
- Below the rubric, compose a brief reflection on the continued development of voice, tone, and style in your scholarly writing. Where are your strengths? Where are your opportunities for further development in order to elevate your scholarly writing in preparation for the dissertation research literature review you will conduct later in your program?
Length: 1.5–2 pages
References: No sources are required in the rubric or reflection, though any sources used should be cited and referenced.
