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. I have developed an organizational pattern of success for me to write successfully in the future and have gained the confidence I desired to aggressively handle future written assignments.

During the course of this semester; the variety of writing styles and essays assigned to me in my communication skills class encouraged the development of my writing skills, as well as provided me with more self-assurance in my abilities. My writing, research, and presentation abilities enhanced through practice, determination, and the understanding I gained during this course. With every single writing assignment, I learned new innovative approaches and skills, which enhanced my abilities to improve my thoughts logically, enabling me to write more clearly, and to organize my papers more effectively. At the beginning of this semester; despite the fact that I already knew the terminology MAP: message, audience, purpose; I never really understood the significance of MAP. For this reason, my writing lacked clarity, organization, and my writings appeared less focused on the topics.
Midterm Reflection Composition 1101 has introduced me to many new reading and writing techniques. I have improved my skills with these techniques. I have learned how to take notes based off of an outline chart. Also, I am learning many new technical ways to maneuver my way to an informational and well written paper. I have learned multiple strategies below to guide me in the most effective ways to improve my writings.
With the use of my peers, I will be able to receive feedback on how they perceive my public speaking. They will not only will they be able to constructively critique my presentation skills but also help me organize my thoughts. FINAL THOUGHTS Overall, I have a lot of areas of improvement when it comes to writing and public speaking. I hope that by the time I graduate, I will be able to accomplish my goals of becoming a more effective writer and speaker. With all of the resources that are available to me, I should have no problem reaching these goals.
Peer review had a good impact on my writing. This was the first time that I used it, and I believe that from my experience peer reviewing is really helpful and necessary to create a good essay because you can see a different point of view on one’s paper. I also enjoyed doing learning narratives in this class because it made me think about how one experience can become a life lesson. Receiving
I hope I have proven to you that the things you taught actually did help, and I gained so much knowledge about myself as a writer and a communicator. Your lectures were very interesting and you made them pleasant to learn. Thank you for a great semester.
Overall my experience in this course was much better than the others this semester. I felt that the information and learning came much easier. I enjoyed the class materials, and the professors did a very good job responding in earnest to my assignments submissions. Because of the much better experience, I truly believe I have become a better writer, better organizer, and better critical thinker. Also with the professor’s guidance in my writing assignments, I have improved my analytical and writing skills as well as developed a greater organizational skill.
Now I know how expand my mind and explore different thoughts to find the strongest one. Developing the essays allowed for me to add a little bit more organization to my sketch and add more detail to build the actual paper from. Submitting a rough draft gave my professor a chance to add in suggestions and recommendations which I then applied to my paper. Lastly, I know when I turned in the final papers they were well thought out with time being spent on them. Separating the paper in sections was a positive advantage for me and my overall
The pre-writing of our drafts allowed us to gather our thoughts, incorporate all information, and prepare the best copy of our writing. This was a great idea because not only were we able to peer edit and obtain critic on our paper, but each of us were able to read a different style of writing and chose whether or not to add those ideas into our papers. This activity was most effective when writing our research papers because we gained critic on our outlines, intros, and drafts. Because of the critic given, I was able to focus on specific parts that I would need to strengthen my paper. This was a useful resource for me and my paper because not only was I able to fix my writing, but I also was able to ask my peers for their guidance in the parts where I struggle in the most.
My portfolio will demonstrate the skills and writing techniques I have developed and honed while taking the course English 1010 at the University of Memphis. Some of the techniques and skills I have learned include how to write with different persuasive strategies on the audience and how to incorporate critical thinking into my work. As well as these skills I have learned how to apply an effective composing process to my writing and have fine tuned my writing abilities. Writing with different styles on different topics has improved the way I approach writing papers. These styles helped me learn quickly, therefore making me a better writer and student at the same time.
