After much thought and deliberation, the topics for the final Composition III essay have been narrowed down to three. In doing so, preliminary research was conducted in order to ascertain whether enough information is available to develop a viable research paper. All three subjects do in fact have sufficient information available and now the only remaining decision is final selection of a topic. The three topics chosen are, 1) Facebook – Friend or Foe; 2) The Debate: Online Degree vs. Brick and Mortar Degree; and 3) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Outsourcing.
The first topic of interest is “Facebook – Friend or Foe”. These days just about everyone has a Facebook account. It is used in marketing, it is used to keep in touch with family and friends, it is used to get a message across quickly to many people, and it can even help you find someone you have lost touch with. Just recently, I personally found a long lost friend that I had not spoken to in over ten years. While checking Facebook messages, I decided to search for some old high school buddies. Lo and behold, there she was. We quickly exchanged phone numbers and we have kept in touch ever since. So Facebook is great, right? Not always! Be cautious of what is placed on your Facebook page! Someone may be judging its content or the postings on your wall. As a former recruiter, several past clients were notorious for reviewing Facebook prior to extending an offer of employment to a candidate. Their reasoning….if they checked Facebook, then their clients can check it, and they do not want an risk an employee giving a bad impression of their business. Do corporations have a right to check your Facebook and pass judgment? ...

- The first half of the composition course was marginally successful in my opinion. There, I determined where my prose was weakest and how I could improve it. The topics in that course were also easier to work with, because the paper style was the only locked attribute. Therefore, entering the second half of the course concerned me, because I now had to write about literature that had possibly infinite numbers of ways it could be interpreted. Literary analysis is something I am acutely aware is one of my weak points.... [tags: Literature, Writing, Fiction, Poetry]

- In my first assignment for English Composition I, my topic was procrastination (Markowitz, 2015). Part of me is still that chronic procrastinator I’ve always been, but I have come to understand that some of those delaying tactics were really the writing process. I realized that while I had been doing those things I had also been prewriting, writing or revising in my head.. If I came up with an idea or a solution to a problem I had written myself into, I’d go back to my desk and write. If I was at work, as I often was, I’d make a note in the notebook that has become my constant companion.... [tags: Writing, Essay, Writing process, Revision]

- Thinking about how I would structure my classroom for a composition course creates a dilemma for me. I had a great experience in my high school composition courses. I really responded to how it was taught and made a personal connection to the work I was doing. Originally, I wanted to model my classroom after the one I had loved so much. The readings I have done concerning postmodern techniques being used in a composition course have also seemed very appealing to me, but present a different classroom experience....

- This semester I have spent in writing 107 has greatly changed my thoughts about writing. All throughout high school and even coming into this class I thought that writing was an easy subject that required very little effort. Suffice to say, I thought that I would get a good grade in this class despite putting in little time and dedication. I learned after the first two papers that writing is a hard subject that requires lots of planning and work. Before this class, I would never have thought that I would go to the writing center in CTLE or have friends proofread my paper telling me their thoughts.... [tags: writing class, composition]

To start, the first paper that gave me lessons was the one we had to write about this upcoming election all the way back in September.

- I entered my first-year college composition course believing I was equipped with the knowledge, skill, and ability to write an efficiently researched and well-organized essay. In high school, I learned how to create the traditional five-paragraph paper with its introduction of a thesis, explanation of that claim through three sections riddled with supporting quotes, and conclusion that restated the author’s substantiated statement. This was the prescribed formula I had learned and grown accustomed to using for book reports, compare-and-contrast papers, and research essays and, from my bestowment of high grades and praise, I’d never thought to question or deviate from its pattern....
