Writing Process

Writing Process

Autumn Flagg Professor Drown December 4, 2019 ENG 122 Writing Process This semester we did a lot of prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing. I think that my prewriting always could have been better. I would read the article, summarize it to myself, and make sure I understood it. Once I understood it I would think about how it related to my work. Prewriting helped with papers because it was almost like a head start on it and it had some…

Autumn Flagg Professor Drown December 2, 2019 ENG 122 Reading Process During this semester I learned a lot of new procedures, concepts, skills, resources, and tools that I would use in other articles like Kahneman. Some of the things I learned that I would use are chunking, chunk parts of the article together and to help me while writing my paper. I would use annotations to take notes on the article. This would help me be able to take notes…

Autumn Flagg Professor Drown ENG 122 November 12, 2019 Kahneman tells his readers about making bad judgements and different types of cognitive fallacies that affect our daily lives. He talks about different cognitive fallacies in which we make bad judgements. Some of these fallacies include the illusion of validity, WYSIATI, being blind to your own blindness, and overconfidence. More specific to this story are the illusion of validity and WYSIATI. If you take a minute to stop and think you…

Kahneman Draft

Autumn Flagg Eric Drown ENG 122 November 12, 2019 Kahneman tells his readers about making bad judgements and different types of cognitive fallacies that affect our daily lives. If you take a minute to stop and think you will realize that many of these fallacies are present in your life. This summer I met a new friend named Mat. Mat and I became pretty close in a short amount of time. We had lots of fires at his house with…

Step 5

Overall it is important to make good judgements because some of the things that we have to make choices on can make a big impact on our lives. I think that Kahnemen along with my friend Mat both have very good examples of why we should be making good judgements versus bad judgments. Although many of the choices that we have to make in our life may be very small and may not have a very big impact on anyone…

Step 3

In my eyes, I believe that the fallacy that Mat fell for was WYSIATI. He saw this person and immediately had a story in his own mind about him and about how he thought he was better, bigger, stronger. He was overconfident and whether he knew it or not, it put him in a bad position. In Kahnamen’s article, he points out that they “had made up a story from the little we knew but had now way to allow…

Step 2

In Kahnamen’s article “Don’t Blink! The Hazards of confidence”, he talks about different types of fallacies that lead us to believe certain things. A few of these cognitive fallacies include the illusion of validity, and WYSIATS. These fallacies tend to lead us to believe things that either we shouldn’t believe or that are not true. One example of this is being over confident. In the article, Kahneman talks about why we make bad judgments.  A cognitive fallacy is something in…

Case Study

Case Study

It was August fourth. My friend Mat, who I had met earlier in the year, invited me to have a fire at his house. I met Mat a few moths back when I was with one of my other friend Angela. We stopped at Apple bees for our routine half priced appetizers after 9 pm and while we were there Angela invited her friend Morgan who had Mat tagging along. We all enjoyed our food before we left to go…

Atul Gawande Ted Talk

Atul Gawande Ted Talk

In Atul Gawande’s Ted Talk “Want to Get Great at Something? Get a Coach.”,  Gawande says that there are “two views” as to how professionals get better (Gawande 3:20). One of these views is that people go to school where “ you study, you practice, you learn, you graduate, and then you go out into the world and you make your way on your own.” (Gawande 3:20) This would be a pedagogical view. The other view is the one that…
