Peer reviewing with Russell was great because he had some great insight in how to portray my reputation. Havi... ... middle of paper ... ...one on the topic, so going back to try and find almost every source I have ever read was a little daunting, but I found most of them. I wanted to thank Ms. Geary for reminding me how much writing can do for me. It helped me realize that writing isn’t so horrible but it is just hard work. My writing skills have improved due to this class and all Ms. Geary had taught me.
Grammar skill is such an important aspect of writing because it makes written content more readable. Through my instructor’s helpful critiques of my writing, I became aware of my issues with proper composition and grammar. I accomplished this by taking the small steps to become a better writer. I now learned take time to prepare and revise my papers. I have spent many hours working on my grammar from comma rules to proper capitalization.
I was used to writing about Willy Loman, the pathetic hero, and Hester Pryne. Mrs. F gave us topics that I could become engaged with and I actually wanted to do a good job, not just get the assignment done as quickly and as painlessly as possible. The choices we were given for our papers included “solitude versus loneliness”, “never again”, and “learning from failure.” At that time in my life, I could have written epics about all ... ... middle of paper ... ...ry new things in my work and in my life. I truly admire her and her way of teaching. I am seriously thinking about becoming a teacher because of my experiences in her classes.
I enrolled into Dr. Brunzia English 101 class. The assignment given was to write about a stereotype. This assignment made it easy for me to write because I expressed my feelings. While in most classes the professor gives a specific topic to write about and the student must write on the topic whether they want to or not. I wrote with passion and ease.
The main reason I became a better writer was because my teacher. Ms. Perkins was one of the reasons why I did well this semester in English. She would always tailor her class to whatever I would need to be successful. She taught what was needed to have a strong base to my writing that was to draft, revise, edit and proofread. Also, she focused on grammar and format
I learned how to use visually descriptive words, to compare and contrast, reasoning and evidence, the use of ethos, pathos and logos. We read our peers essays, and applied what I learned to correct the grammatical errors, gave suggestions to word placement, and sentence usage. Reviewing and editing skills learned will be very helpful in the future as we continue to write essays during college. I could definitely take the next step forward in my writing skills. I have truly enjoyed my English classes and know what I have learned will be extremely valuable in my future career.
Dear Professor and her Literate colleagues, I wish to thank everyone who impacted my education in any way and gave me motivation to keep studying when I felt like I did not have the ability nor the skills to continue my education. This course molded me into a better writer and made me enjoy writing more than anything else. The revisions that I made throughout the course allowed me to improve my sentence structures, organize my essays, and personalize them by creating a theme for the genre pertaining to each essay, and avoid writer’s block for my personal narrative and the research paper about Chicanos in education. As part of the course, I learned a few techniques and incorporated them into my essays throughout the course which, in turn,
The thought process was emphasized in this writing class, and I think the explicit knowledge benefited most students. The teacher facilitated feedback in various ways. The teacher reviewed a survey that students completed last class. It helped the teacher know student opinions on the pace of the class, time spent on homework, and recommended changes. Also, she gave concise constructive feedback on each student's essay map as they were discussed as a class.
I can tell that from each essay that I wrote, that each one of them still have room for changes. For example, Essay one was probably one the worst essay I have written, but now that I have learned how to revise things, I can go back and make it a better easy. With every paper, must come great grammar. In the beginning of this class, I only knew a handful ... ... middle of paper ... ...median, or describe how he wasn’t sober before the tests”(pg.1). When I met with my teacher, I noticed she always had great feedback and that I would be able to make a stronger paper with her comments.
I firmly believe that she is the reason I feel comfortable sharing my ideas. On the other end of the scale, I have another teacher who taught me about the fundamentals of an essay. She was far more critical than the previous teacher, yet she had the same amount of impact on my writing process. It is thanks to her that I spend time looking at my sentences and structure of my essay. All the teachers in between the two I mentioned played a role in constructing my process.
