Thanks to this writing process, my work has improved in a very tremendous way because I have been able to reflect on my work before and after I turn it in for a grade. The blogs have given me a sense of guidance through my writing process strategies. Another strategy of mine that has improved is my ability to conduct extensive research, during WP2 which was our collaborative writing piece, I was taught how to conduct credible research to help me draft for my topic. The research I have conducted during this course has been extremely beneficial to me because I now know what credible sources are to ensure that my research is trustworthy. I have learned where to find the best research through the use of different databases.
Applying the finishing touches to the persuasive paper I know that it was a solid paper made possible by the improvement I have evidenced by partici... ... middle of paper ... ... writing in any environment. 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. 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.
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.
For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed writing. Writing is an opportunity for me to express my thoughts and feelings while helping me grow to understand who I am as an individual, a student and furthermore, a future teacher. Yet, if someone were to ask me how I do it, I am afraid I could not give him or her a clear and precise answer. Trying to find that answer almost seems harder for me than the actual writing process itself. However, after having done my student teaching last semester, I have learned that modeling my own writing for the students not only helps them to see more clearly how I write, but helps me understand how I write as well.
Comments in my discourse essay that prove this fact, are from Dr. Clermont and Hannah. The comments range from “needs a transition and confusing TS”, “A little confusing”, to flat out “Confusing.” It’s something going forward in future classes that I will have to continue to work on, making sure the thoughts I put onto paper translate into a cohesive thought throughout my work. In the case of this class, the theories either helped or hindered. I found discourse to be easier than, say psychoanalysis just because all the information was right there in the text and it
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.
Also, I would try to go with more of my ideas that what books tell me, so that I can learn how to develop my ideas and convince my clients and users of my ideas. For the better outcome from this class, I would love to hear from Professor Bennett’s feedbacks on my assignments. It was really good that she gave us her feedback with detail examples on our wireframe assignment, and it definitely helps me to re-do the assignment, and make it better.
I also will be talking about how I grow throughout the class. The first topic we learned about what are the goals of a Career and Work Counsellor? Well the goal of Career and Work Counsellor is to help the client understand his/her responsibility and helping them make their own decisions. What does a Career and Work Counselling do, is to help their clients find the skills they have and help them find a job that fits those she skill... ... middle of paper ... ...could be and some I am not but I think learning them is great and it could help be a better counsellor. Overall as a counsellor I think there are many other things, I have to learn and improve on.
A high school publications class provides a real life group learning activity that few other classes replicate. Students work as a team to create a newspaper, yearbook, website or broadcast, and while individual assignments are important, the class needs to come together to make sure all the work gets done, is done well and is put together as a whole. I want to see if teaching students to do peer writing conferences would help them become better writers and team members, because they would practice both writing skills and social skills by giving and receiving feedback. However, after some early difficulties with having my students give short, vague, grammar focused writing conferences I want to find out if writing conferences, especially peer writing conferences are useful and how I can improve the comments students make with each other. Importance of writing conferences I am interested in the dialogues that can happen when two people discuss writing.
