These are the things that I have worked on and improved over the course of English 1B and I feel that my work shows this. For example, in my peer review essay #1, I realized that the process and research of the information I wanted to incorporate into my essay is a critical step in order to clearly express my thoughts in my essay. I had many ideas and thoughts about what I wanted to say, but had to find a way to put my critical thoughts in an organized way where I could properly express myself. I found that putting all my critical thoughts down on paper though a map or chart helped the organization of my paper greatly. At the start of writing Peer Review Essay #1 I had many top... ... middle of paper ... ...me and unnecessary, but the process of feedback and revision was essential, it not only helped me fix my errors, but it also allowed me to reassess and better structure my essay.
Thanks to English 1010 D2L document, I was able to understand how to find content, take quizzes and communicate with lecturers. This course has been a valuable one, equipping me with skills I’ll remember when even after I graduate MT. Although there is still many more stuff I can learn to improve myself as a writer and reader, I am content with the improvement I’ve seen from when I first started this English 1010 course.
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 need to consider more about focusing on the topic and organizing for my writing, because it appeals to the audience more clear to the point. Also, I feel that I am much better to convince my audience through my writings. In general, I like this course because it taught me a lot of great things, such as how to revise the essay in order to make it better. My writing has improved a lot throughout this year, I learned how to organize my essay’s structure, using the transition sandwich to perfect my writing. In the future, I hope to continue developing all the skills that I learned in this English class, and I will continue to go to the Writing Center to ask for help to perfect my writing.
This class taught me that writing is easier when I organize my thoughts and write an outline before writing. In addition, my usage of commas, conjunctions, and concessive words improved, which helped me convey my ideas easier for the reader. Lastly, this class taught me to proofread and edit before submitting my paper that helped me improve my grades. This class was challenging for me, but it made my writing skills better.

I see strength into the structure in essay as it flows better. I see transformation which for me is good, I used some advice from the book. As this semester progresses I will like to continue working on essays and vocabulary, I think vocabulary says a lot about someone especially in a reading. The knowledge you have shown in the way you try to communicate with the reader. I think the grade I earned in this essay is a B+ because I answer all the questions to my ability that were given
Also, it makes me realize what is missing and what I need to add in that sentence in order to have an understandable sentence. It may be simple, but it does help me a lot in my own way.

As the term comes to an end, I think that this semester has been a great journey for me so far because I have learned a lot, including the fact that I still have a lot to learn. I hope to continue improving my writing skills as a student so that I can be successful in my future career.
Reflecting back to the start of English 122, I feel I may have started with a little more confidence in myself as a writer. As I progressed through the course however, I realized I had a lot of work in improving my skills. I found I needed to be refreshed of the basic construction of an essay as well as some basic grammar and syntax skills. Reflecting on the last eight weeks of English 122, I have learned the basic steps of the writing process, the importance of utilizing outlines, and have improved my overall writing skills in a formal essay. Writing is a process that takes multiple steps.
The thoughts running around in my head were telling me that this essay might be a little better than the pre-assessment. After all, Mrs. Robinson had proclaimed she graded harder to teach us, but there were still doubts in my head. Those doubts made me think to write something personal since that was what I was used to. Upsettingly, I spent time on this essay, but didn’t use all the resources to my benefit. A key part I didn’t use was reading aloud the essay after and going back and check to see if it made sense.
