Final Reflection

I learned a lot from this semester. Especially when we were doing research for the projects. Of the projects that we had done, two of them needed resources and citations in the essays. The process of finding resources made me remember my history class from last semester, where we needed to analyze resources and choose the best one for the writing assignment. I got more exercise with researching and got more familiar with finding the best source. It can help me in future essays because I know where to find sources and which one is reliable. I also learned that we can find resources on Wikipedia’s citation page. It is fast to find related sources. The essays I wrote this semester were different from the ones I wrote last semester. But I got to explore different types of essays and learned their structures through writing. 

One of the works I am proud of is the Seven Day Log of Wikipedia. It is a process of learning a new thing and experiencing something I had not touched before. I had always known Wikipedia as an open editing page for everyone. But with the log, I made an account and recorded my activities with Wikipedia there. I am proud that I got to know the back end of Wikipedia. With the more I worked with Wikipedia, I got a better understanding of the problems of Wikipedia. There is gender bias shown in the pages but there are people who fight for a change. As for project 2, we were required to write a Wikipedia page for red-name women. Even if our work got deleted, I felt we did something significant and were a part of the revolution to fight for change.                                                                                                                                                                                                     

One project that I feel is the most challenging is Project 3, Creative Remix. I decided to do it in a group to create a podcast. I had never created a podcast before. Since it is a group project, there are a lot of different opinions from each other. The script that we wrote, we made a lot of changes. It was either one person who felt it was too dry or another person who felt it sounded weird. Also, many of the writings were too formal which is not a good fit when speaking out. And the script was just the beginning. The hard part was when we tried to record it. There are problems with tone, pronunciation, stumble, and volume. We couldn’t record the whole podcast in one try. We need to separate it into five sections and piece it together in the end. But it was a good prior experience if I had to do another podcast for a project next time.
