Constructing a better sentence is also one of the things I should work on. I still have the tendency to construct a confusing sentence that I also get confuse on when I read it. People always say that practice makes it perfect, and that is what I am going to do. I am going to keep on writing and use the things that I learn to improve my writing skills. By practicing to write and making mistakes, I would learn different things that would improve my writing even
Thinking of logical locations to place these phrases can help the logic and focus of my essays and help me gain more points. Composition and Rhetoric 111 has given me the ability to grow as a writer. The class has challenged me in not only my writing ability, but also my mental stamina and ability to adapt writing to constraints given by the teacher. After taking this class I know I need to work on placing phrases in appropriate locations, limiting to-be verbs, and creating effective topic sentences. This class has allowed me to understand what makes me a good writer, but also a bad writer.
It has helped me make a good start and saved me time. One thing I find difficult with this essay is develop a good thesis since I kept on changing it because I kept adding more topics for my idea which means I had to revise the outline too. Although I was a bit struggling with the thesis, the in-class assignments had also helped me add some information that can be added to my main idea such as the quiz about the literary analysis in the story for “A Temporary Matter” and the group discussions about the same story. Moreover, one of my weaknesses in this piece is the sentence structure which means I need to pay attention to the language, punctuation in order to develop a strong and consistent narrative. One thing that I would like to improve on this piece is MLA citation since I tend to sometimes forget to use proper MLA in text citation.
Once I learned a variety of new genres, techniques and ways to improve my writing process, that fear faded. Currently, I don’t feel terrified with the idea of English 102 and on; this class has not only given me tools to succeed, but a positive set of goals that will prevent my habit of procrastination that I loathe. What I have learned has changed me as a person and a writer; my new mindset and approach will hopefully keep my writing process growing and my drive to improve in high gear.
Before taking English 1A, I was a discouraged writer because as an English learner, I did not believe that I had any ability to be an acceptable writer. Therefore, I did not have any joy while I was doing writing assignments. However, I have gradually loved writing through this semester. I fortunately got plenty of helps from my classmates and professor; thus, my writing skills have gotten improved a lot. I currently can feel that writing is a quite enjoyable process, and I like delivering my ideas to other people by writing, too.
It was passing, but it wasn’t well enough to my expectations. So my recognition and developing skills test were very good, but I didn’t reflect those skills toward my essay. So now once I saw that grade, I realized that I had to push hard than I was because if I wanted a good average, I had to work hard for it. Now my goal is to figure out the new types of sentences my professor taught me. Not just learning them, but also applying them to my essay because I want my essays to become even better constructed than how they use to be.
Some may argue that liking writing is not something that can be taught, but I think students can learn to enjoy writing if they are given the right assignments. I plan on teaching and using all three rhetorics in my classroom because I think they’re all necessary for success as a well-rounded writer. Using the current traditional rhetoric model can be tedious and restricting, but it’s a necessary skill to have for the future, particularly when it comes to writing essays. Once students have mastered form, they will discover that they actually do have a lot of freedom in expressing their views within it. The epistemic model can be difficult because one always has to keep audience in mind, but it is also very useful, and shows students that their writing can make a difference.
Also through practice this semester I was better able to write a concrete thesis statement, something I was puzzled with in my previous English courses. Now I am more confident in my writing, but I still believe that there are certain areas in my writing that could use some improvement. During this semester I have been able to look at my previous essay and see the progress that I have made. With my prologue essay there are countless grammar and spelling mistakes. I take this into account now because I have learned to reread my essays before deciding whether or not they are finalized.
There are times when I have trouble writing and that is why I have goals to fix all the things that are bad about my writing. With the advice from the authors I will be able to achieve some of my goals by putting some of it to use in my writing by either getting rid of sentences I don’t need, writing something on a subject that I would be interested in, or lastly keep thinking and rewriting till I get it right. All of those will help make me better at writing because it would probably fix things that I need help on when I write. In the future I would probably need to to work on more things to improve but if I work hard on it I would probably be able to fix my mistakes as I continue
My strengths and weaknesses make want to become a better writer hopefully this class will help. I 've never been a good writer but then again not everyone is, my strengths push me and weaknesses pull me back but only with practice and help will the weaknesses be vanished. Being able to know what to write but not know how to piece it together is a huge weakness. It doesn’t sound like a huge problem but it 's more complex than it sounds. When I get an essay prompt and it 's time to type I know what I 'm going to writing about and how it
