My strengths and weaknesses make want to become a better writer hopefully this class will help. I 've never been a good writer but then again not everyone is, my strengths push me and weaknesses pull me back but only with practice and help will the weaknesses be vanished.

When I get an essay prompt and it 's time to type I know what I 'm going to writing about and how it
Constructing a better sentence is also one of the things I should work on. I still have the tendency to construct a confusing sentence that I also get confuse on when I read it. People always say that practice makes it perfect, and that is what I am going to do. I am going to keep on writing and use the things that I learn to improve my writing skills. By practicing to write and making mistakes, I would learn different things that would improve my writing even
Some may argue that liking writing is not something that can be taught, but I think students can learn to enjoy writing if they are given the right assignments. I plan on teaching and using all three rhetorics in my classroom because I think they’re all necessary for success as a well-rounded writer. Using the current traditional rhetoric model can be tedious and restricting, but it’s a necessary skill to have for the future, particularly when it comes to writing essays. Once students have mastered form, they will discover that they actually do have a lot of freedom in expressing their views within it. The epistemic model can be difficult because one always has to keep audience in mind, but it is also very useful, and shows students that their writing can make a difference.
Moreover, the way I have grown as a writer is becoming more confident within the words I wrote. I was more confident in my writing because I learned to improve my writing by making outline prior to beginning a paper. Without an outline, I would lose track of my thoughts, I would ramble and make common mistakes; it would be catastrophic. The purpose of an outline is similar to having d... ... middle of paper ... ...ize mistake to correct them. Overall writing still takes me on a journey I enjoy traveling on because it is a world of the unknown, until you the writer creates it’s image.

Writing is something everyone dreads, but being diligent can go a long way. Stafford emphasizes the writing aspect of education. Stafford argues that good writers are not born but are made through hard work and creativity. I agree with Stafford that a person can learn more about a topic through hard work and creative thinking. He argues that, careless of failure he rapidly writes things down on the page and a sense of freedom arrives and if it passes his personal standards, accepts.
Each paper I got back I would always put a comma where it was not supposed to be, or I would not put a comma where it was needed. Although I have got a lot of feedback about commas it is still something that I struggle with, and I will probably be making mistakes even in this reflection. With each paper I enjoyed writing them after creating my ideas. I do wish that I had a little bit more time on each of the papers I wrote to perfect them in every way
Conclusion Not being good at something, it doesn’t mean that one can’t do it; it just means that they have to work much harder to accomplish the task. For example, in my case my sense of self-efficacy is about writing essays or writing important papers for my classes. By just knowing that I can write essay in a safe environment where I don’t get distracted, then I know that I can do it without difficulties. Even if I am not the best on this. However, after finishing an essay I prove myself once more that I can do it and I feel that I accomplished another

The way I can improve on all of these subjects is to go to the writing center where professors will help me for free. This is the best option to receive help because I will receive professional criticism that can improve my writing skills. Finally I think it is important that my writing is as close to perfect as possible because it will be an asset to me for my entire life.
When it comes to writing, my first challenge is always figuring out what I want to say and how to say it in a way that is understandable and meets the expectations of my reader. Knowing that my personal thoughts and opinions will be graded by someone who may or may not understand the point I’m trying to make, intimidates me. In his essay on self revision, Donald Murray statement that both professional and student writers are “overly critical, think everything is dreadful, tear up page after page, never complete a draft, and see the task as hopeless” (Murray), is the epitome of my writing process. In elementary school we were all taught a basic writing process: brainstorm, write a rough draft, revise and proofread, write a final draft.
