Other aspects of the writing process over the semester such as the revision stages were also something that I continued to progress in. I’ve come to realization that writing is no longer a just another assignment that I can just through just before it’s due. This class is the first writing course in which I’ve actually had to push myself. I firmly believe that I have that brought my writing to another level. My paragraphs feel sharper, my ability to reference pop text has gotten significantly better, and, most importantly, I am able to more personal with my writing.
I am excited for college English in just a semester I have learned valuable reading and writing skills, I am hoping to learn a lot more new skills in my previous courses. New learning will arrive, I believe that with the college professors’ ideologies and with my hard work I will be able to become a great reader and writer. I need to leave high school’s English ideology behind and keep discovering new forms of reading and writing. I am a simple ordinary reader and writer but I am in college and I will keep improving.
All of these things can be used in my future classes throughout my college career. This essay reflects on how my writing of English Composition essays has grown, or benefited from continuous revising, visiting the Writing Center, and implementing the feedback I have received from my instructor. The process of writing and revising of my first paper for English Composition 1 benefited from the various resources offered at the University of Oklahoma.

I would like to start off with thanking you for having the time to review the work and effort that I have put into my English 101 Final Portfolio. In the time in class that I have had this quarter I have learned new techniques that I had not known before in writing, for example I have learned about how to build paragraphs in a correct formal way. In my work in the portfolio I hope to show how my skills as a writer have improved from the work I have done before. I plan to take the experience that I have had in this class and take it with me to help me improve as a student on other class topics. In the time that I have been in class I believe that it has helped me in a positive way to help me manage my time, along with building my confidence in writing.

I am at the milestone in my writing, however, with hard work and determination I will improve as a writer throughout my college years. Although I know there is still much to improve on in my writing, I feel as though I have made tremendous strides for my first semester. I have grown as a writer, and I believe I have the potential to be a great writer. Throughout my many years left here at The College of New Rochelle, I will continue to work hard so that my final year here at the college I can look back at my writings from freshman year to see my improvement.
Even though we have a couple of weeks left on this course, I believe that I was able to accomplished my goal in this class to become a better writer, and write different types essays effectively such as descriptive, comparative and contrast, argumentative and research. Our first writing assignment was descriptive essay. I like the fact that we had a read around on our class. I had great opportunity to read my essay to the class entitled “My Sweet Little Princess.” I learned through our class discussion, that a descriptive essay simply describes something or someone by appealing to the reader’s senses: sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Also, I learned that we have to use vivid details to make a person, place or experiences to become true to life which I failed to do, in which my professor commented on the side my paper.
The reviews gave me a better understanding about ethos, pathos, logos and main features of genres. This essay is going to explain what I have improved upon and learned in this class over the course of the semester. Rhetorical Knowledge Since the beginning of the semester I have been
Today, from my own experience this semester. I would like to describe how WRA-110 class could help me improve my writing, reading and researching skills in Michigan State University. WRA, as its name implies, it means Writing, Rhetoric& American Cultures. Writing would be the most important skill which people need to learn, it is also a skill that will benefit people throughout the year.During this semester, I think my writing development can be summarized by one sentence from syllabus : “An understanding of writing as an epistemic and recursive process and effectively apply a variety of knowledge-making strategies in writing.” For example, in my second assignment, I wanted to describe one culture called “nerd and geek.” In my academic career, I have never heard this word. In order to comprehend this kind culture, I made one connections between it with one famous TV program “ Big Bang Theory”.
Throughout this semester we have had to write many types of essays. Although this is a college English class there is still room for improvement. I made much improvement during the semester of the class. I was able to identify my weaknesses. I learned how to make improvements to the areas I was having problems in.
The reasoning is to show how through all the writing process in the papers written in class has made my writing style improve. Now that the semester is coming to end i 'm coming to realize that my writing represents an argument that I stand for and defend with evidence to prove my point. One of the couple of reasons I feel that my writing style has improved has been the way I revise my work now compared to beginning of the semester. In other classes I had taken in high school we were assigned a topic to write about, and had a certain date it was due. The teacher would tell us to write the paper and revise it ourselves; occasionally the teachers would revise it for us, if we needed it but that wasn 't always the case.
