My Reflection Of Writing

Good Essays
I have written several writing projects and have done several reviews for my fellow class mates in this course. Throughout this first semester of college I have been working hard in English. This class has helped improve many skills that I didn’t even know I had, like my tone and providing evidence. The several different types of projects allowed me to improve the process of how to write essays by learning things like writing peer reviews and organizing essays.
