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.
Reflection essay In the beginning of this class I had my doubts, I was unsure, confused, and discouraged. I decided to take it anyway. This would be my second time taking English 1301, you would think I would have learned my lesson and go to the physical campus to take English the second time around. The first time I took English I learned absolutely nothing I wrote so many papers and read a full book and I finished that class with a bad grade and no confidence. I can definitely say this class was different, very different I enjoyed every assignment.
I would think to myself like wow I put little amount of effort and my essay still comes out good. That itself made me think that english was pretty easy. Entering english 905, I had no idea what I was getting into. As the semester went on, Professor davis gave me new knowledge that none of my teachers in high school really specified on. Thinking about the way he teaches really makes me think about how my high school teachers
Writing isn’t for everyone I know it’s not for me. Writing can be hard and challenging, but also fun if you make writing to be. I haven’t ever found writing to be fun, but I do not hate writing as much as I used to. Since I have started writing more and learn how to write better it has become a little more tolerable. I don’t want to write a lot when I am done with school, but when I have to I now have the skills to write well.
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
I needed an outlet from the pointless assignments which inevitably turned into me writing my own short stories and blogs. Although I did not learn much about writing from this unproductive class, I learned a lot about myself. I found my passion. By the end of the year, I was ready to go into regular English, but in the back of my mind I knew I had to at least see what the next year was like. I felt as though I went through hell and back with the previous class, how much worse could the next be?
A Writing Portfolio: The Ups and Downs Writing isn’t my strongest suit and always has room for improvement. Throughout this semester writing composition 10103 wasn’t my favorite class in the world, but it was a great learning experience to improve my writing skills. Transitioning from a high school academic English class to college level writing class was a big step for me. I spent countless nights where I would just stare at my computer screen having no idea what to write, but practice makes perfect. Having a professor with high standards in his students in their writing skills really made me push myself the hardest I have ever pushed myself in a writing course.
If a friend were to ask me for help on his paper, I would first help him pick a topic that he is experienced in so that he can write an interesting paper on his chosen topic. In addition, I would have him consider his audience so he can determine what kind of approach he would take on it. After, I would give him a checklist that he can go by throughout his essay since that is what helped me the most. Finally, I would proofread his work for any grammatical errors in his paper. These few steps have taught me how to write a better paper so I would go by these with others
Over the course of this fall semester, my development as a writer have transformed positively. I feel more confident organizing my ideas because my literacy development has improved. Specific improvements that I can recall reflecting back to the three major assignments in this course are the thesis statement construction, forming my ideas together and write clear sentences. Another personal accomplishment would be the understanding and implementation of the rhetorical terms. Throughout my years in college, mainly I had struggle writing in English because English is my second language.
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.
