Review the discussion grading criteria and read â€œChronic Procrastination: Life Beyond Ineffective Time Management,â€ written by Joseph R. Ferrari in Chapter 4 of the College Writing Handbook. Use an active reading strategy, such as SQ3R, PQRST, or KWL, to comprehend the words and their meaning (See section 1.4 Reading Academic Materials).
After reading Chapter 4, including â€œChronic Procrastination,â€ reflect upon your experiences in this class. Think about your current writing process and how it may work for you (or against you) in future classes. Consider your biggest time management concerns and how you may be able to address them in the future.
Describe your experience in class thus far. Did you feel organized and prepared or did you feel disorganized and unprepared?
Share your time-management techniques and how you may do things differently in the future. Identify strategies and ideas from Chapter 4 in College Writing Handbook that you will use to complete papers in your upcoming courses.
As you discuss time management, share your response to Ferrariâ€™s article. Could you relate to the chronic procrastinators described in the article? Did the research surprise you? What did you learn from the article?
Remember to cite the source in APA style. For example:
Ferrari (2011/2018) said that â€œadult procrastinators more often claim they are â€˜nightâ€™ peopleâ€ (para. 8), which I could relate to.
While Ferrari (2011/2018) suggested that procrastination is related to time perception, I feel that my procrastination is not related to my perceptions of the past or the future.
End your post with a proper reference citation in APA style, too:
