The human being is created in this world to learn something every day. Also, he or she is to improve himself or herself. In the learning process people make mistakes all the time, and naturally, they learn a lot from their own and other’s mistakes. It is the same as my situation about my class. My goal that I was hoping to achieve was to pass my English class with a good grade.
Although I have learned a lot and have improved my writing skills tremendously I still feel that I have more to work on. I constantly took all of the criticism that I received from my English instructor and applied these things to the next paper so that I could learn from it and do better than before. Everything that I learned in this course I will be able to use in future courses because eventually I am going to have to write other essays or even lab reports. I also can apply what I learned to my future career because I will have to communicate with my co-workers through business emails which will require good sentence structure and proper grammar.

I had to revise it a bit and add some more background to what I was writing in the class, such as my Johnathn story (there are more of them too). As to let the reader know why Ms. Moe called me ‘disturbed’, but that was not hard. I’m sure Ms. Geary was a little concerned after reading this, wondering if she needed to report that I’m unstable or a threat to others, but no I just enjoy writing things that get my dark side out (I’m stable now, I promise). Getting a perfect score the first time, I still revised it and added things I thought would make it even better to read. Peer reviewing with Russell was great because he had some great insight in how to portray my reputation.
As an English major, it is important to believe that you have the ability to write a genuinely effective paper. When my patience for writing is tested, all of my skills and knowledge seem to escape my mind and fly out of the window.

In conclusion, this class has truly been an invaluable learning experience for me. From finally figuring out how to correctly use the MLA format to effectively eliminating my procrastinating habits, the class has given me multiple opportunities to grow as a writer.

This class has allowed me to improve in areas I was already competent in and has made me address the areas where I was weak.
Writing is an important and useful way to communicate with people. Without an essential writing skill, people may have difficulty communicating with others. In Pace University, English Department focuses on improving students writing by adding a workshop class to improve students ' writing. Over the course of the semester, I have learned a better technique and tips from Professor Boylan, reading an essay from authors and class discussion. Writing had always been one of my weaknesses, but it was challenging to take that initial step past high school.
Over the course of the semester, I feel I have developed a lot as a writer. When I first began this class, I considered myself to be a decent writer. In high school and college, I developed my writing skills, but I always knew there was room for improvement. In fact, one of my high school teachers always said that no matter how good of a writer you were or how long you had been writing, there was always room for improvement. So I entered this class knowing that I could write well, but could learn to write better.
Winston Churchill once stated “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” During my time here at English 180 I saw some improvement in my writing in terms of content. I feel as if I am more capable of writing an essay with better content than I was able to do back in High School. My essays have shown improvement because I did change my style of writing a bit and I added something different every time I wrote a paper. In English 180 we wrote several papers, but each one had a change to fit the certain criteria. Winston Churchill’s quote perfectly describes the purpose of the class English 180.
My journey through high school as a writer has been quite fruitful. I have refined many of weaknesses, including organizations and introductions, and am still perfectly some as I go, like time management and conclusions. I learned that there is no such thing as a perfect paper; there is always room for improvement in my writing skills. Also, I have learned to see my writing through different perspectives and portray abstract concepts in my work. In the years to come, I hope to learn even more from my instructors and develop a unique writing
My professor also commented that I needed to proofread my essay before submitting it. After this experience, I made sure that I have time to proofread in-class essays and to always proofread essays before submitting them. Reading my essay over and over again is tiring. However, by proofreading my essay, I would have the chance to edit mistakes. This lesson helped me be a better writer by catching mistakes that can confuse my readers.
