Portfolio Task #1: Reading Comprehension (5%)

3

Your Task: The following questions ask you to demonstrate your understanding of “Food for Thought” by Marie Fitrion and your ability to use the reading comprehension terms that we have explored so far.

Your responses will also help your instructor to provide constructive feedback and to guide your ongoing progress.

Write your responses in the text boxes provided. The boxes will expand if you want to write more than the space provided. Use “Save As” to give the file a new name after you begin to ensure that you do not accidentally submit the blank template for grading.

1.
Identify the Topic:
What is the text about? (1 point)

2.
Identify the Thesis:
What is the author of this text saying? (1 point)

3.
Identify the Purpose
What is the author of this text trying to accomplish or achieve by writing and publishing this text? Refer to one section of the text to support your interpretation (2 points)

Now imagine that Marie Fitrion wrote a different kind of text altogether: imagine, instead, that she’s written a letter or diary entry to her future (older) self. Use McMaster University’s “Identity on the Plate” (2019) as a resource here. Is there anything in “Identity on the Plate” that Fitrion’s future self might find useful to know?

4.
Identify the Purpose
: What might the purpose of this new letter be? (2 point)

5.
Consider Support
: Would the supporting details and examples (e.g. anecdotal evidence versus scientific research) change in this new letter? How? Why? Be specific. (2 points)

6.
Consider Literary Voice
: Would Fitrion’s tone and diction change in this new letter? How? Why? Be specific. (2 points)
