English 1010 was exactly the class I needed to improve myself as an assertive reader and writer. This semester, I have learnt not only about genre and genre selection, but also using concise language, sources, improving drafting skills and overcoming writers block. In How to Write Anything, the various genres and sub genres were displayed. This has helped to me to identify the genre of any paper based on the type paper I’m completing. For Example, I know that if I’m completing a product review, the genre of that paper is Evaluation.
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.
Even though we have a couple of weeks left on this course, I believe that I was able to accomplished my goal in this class to become a better writer, and write different types essays effectively such as descriptive, comparative and contrast, argumentative and research. Our first writing assignment was descriptive essay. I like the fact that we had a read around on our class. I had great opportunity to read my essay to the class entitled “My Sweet Little Princess.” I learned through our class discussion, that a descriptive essay simply describes something or someone by appealing to the reader’s senses: sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Also, I learned that we have to use vivid details to make a person, place or experiences to become true to life which I failed to do, in which my professor commented on the side my paper.
In the time that I have been in class I believe that it has helped me in a positive way to help me manage my time, along with building my confidence in writing. In this beginning of the quarter I had many challenges when it came to writing a paper and I feel that I have improved my skills when it came to writing an essay. When I came to college just out of high school, I came with the mentality that the classes would be no different from one another. I thought that if I kept the same paper composition that I have had in
I wrote rhetorically for the first time, put my writing online, and gain a new understanding of writing. Of course, I learned about MLA format and citing, which is more important than it seems to be. Also, realized that my writing performance can be improved immensely based on spending more time on my assignments. As well as my grammar, general flow, and the maturity of my writing enhanced thanks to this class. The main reason I became a better writer was because my teacher.
In the beginning of the English Composition 1 course, I felt as if I was not a very good writer. A lot of what I learned in high school was completely different than that of my college English course. Over the course of this semester our class worked on several different types of essays which include scholarly discourse, discourse community analysis, a persuasive paper, and finally a critical reflective essay. After almost completing the course, I feel like I have grown to become a more prepared writer because of all of the useful information that I have learned. Campus resources such as the Writing Center have also contributed tremendously to my success in my English course.
The reasoning is to show how through all the writing process in the papers written in class has made my writing style improve. Now that the semester is coming to end i 'm coming to realize that my writing represents an argument that I stand for and defend with evidence to prove my point. One of the couple of reasons I feel that my writing style has improved has been the way I revise my work now compared to beginning of the semester. In other classes I had taken in high school we were assigned a topic to write about, and had a certain date it was due. The teacher would tell us to write the paper and revise it ourselves; occasionally the teachers would revise it for us, if we needed it but that wasn 't always the case.
Writing that involves expressive detail helps the reader to get a full understanding of the subject being examined. This can help the student to communicate or pass on the message while writing research papers that is required in class. Without the ability to communicate in a written and oral format, the students cannot effectively pass on their thought when they are writing a research paper. Being skilled in English shows that you are educated and you can convey well; information is the key and once you have it nobody can remove it from you. Taking up English classes is important for college student is because English will help you to build better communication
