Question 1

Composition theorists Anthony Bartholomae and Peter Petrosky make this claim: “Reading involves a fair measure of push and shove. You make your mark on a book and it makes its mark on you. Reading is not simply a matter of hanging back and waiting for a piece, or its author, to tell you what the writing has to say. . . .the pages before you will begin to speak only when the authors are silent and you begin to speak in their place” (1). This quotation should evoke for you many of the same points made by DiYanni in 50 Great Essays about “active reading.”

Reflecting on your experience reading one of the assigned essays this term, describe how you implemented active reading. How did you “make your mark” on this reading, and, in turn, what “mark” did the reading make on you? In other words, how did this particular reading change your perspective, make you think differently, read differently? And, importantly, how did your identity and perspective as a reader influence your interpretation of the piece?

Question 2

This question focuses on a specific reading from this term—Gloria Anzaldúa’s “How to Tame a Wild Tongue.” In this essay, Anzaldúa writes from a very specific cultural and historical point-of-view. Upon first reading this essay, you may have struggled to identify with the particulars of her experience. Pointing to specific moments in the text to support your answer, discuss the ways that Anzaldúa’s story has—and does not have—universal application. In other words, discuss how her story is or is not your story. Then, relate this analysis to your own work as a writer. How do you as a writer make your experience relatable and important to your audience? How do the principles rhetorical analysis and persuasion factor into this process?


You have been asked to develop UML diagrams to graphically depict and describe the architecture of two (2) unrelated software systems. The first system is for an automated ticket-issuing system used by passengers at a railway station. The second system is for a computer-controlled video conferencing system, located in a corporate office and accessible to senior management that allows video, audio, and computer data to be visible to several participants at the same time.
Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:
1. Create two (2) UML diagrams, one (1) showing a conceptual view and one (1) showing a process view of the architectures for each of the two (2) following systems (for a total of four [4] diagrams) through the use of Microsoft Visio or its open source alternative, Dia. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
1. An automated ticket-issuing system used by passengers at a railway station.
2. A computer-controlled, video-conferencing system that allows video, audio, and computer data to be visible to several participants at the same time.
2. Describe how you created the conceptual and process view for all four (4) diagrams. In the description, be sure to provide a justification for each key decision in the design.
3. Explain how you arrived at your final solution for the four (4) conceptual and process view diagrams that you have created.

Floor Plan

Site surveys allow you to place access points in locations that provide an optimum signal without resorting to trial and error. Conducting a site survey is a critical component of properly designing and installing a wireless LAN. Every building is unique; therefore, a network consultant should always do a thorough walkthrough to analyze signal strength and to identify any objects that might cause interference. In this assignment, you will analyze five office floor plans. The data you gather will assist you in completing your final project. As you analyze each plan, consider what objects or materials affect the signal strength, why they do so, and what you can do to overcome their interference. Resource: Ch. 15 of CWNA Certified Wireless Network Administrator Official Study Guide; Analyze the five floor plans in the Floor Plan Site Survey exercise located on the student website. Each plan has only one access point placed in the data center of each building. The location of the data center may not always be ideal for optimum signal coverage, so you will use this survey to determine where to place other access points as needed. Complete Appendix E.
