On February 10, I write about Dr. Popham’s life altering lesson the “to be” forms. Ever since then, “I really cannot write my essays without thinking of better words that might fit the sentence better.” As a result, when it came time to write my drafts, my peers and I didn’t suffer greatly. On March 2 I explain, “I really enjoyed the free flowing essays and thus, made it very enjoyable to read and revise.” The reflection journal shows my change in attitude towards writing and assisted me in becoming a concise
I feel it is more organized and the content is more concentrated on the topic. I enjoyed writing my definition essay and the reminiscence essays because of this. Also I learned that no challenge is impossible from writing my informational and portrait of a writer essays. Even though I found each very difficult, I soon found out it just takes practice. I have been introduced to different writing styles of writing and endured a lot of criticism, as well as positive feedback.
I loved when we did peer responses. I was able to give some helpful suggestions to my classmates. But, where I got the most out of it was getting the peer responses. They were usually really helpful and gave me the direction I needed. The collaboration of the classroom was one of the best things about taking this

I wanted to thank Ms. Geary for reminding me how much writing can do for me. It helped me realize that writing isn’t so horrible but it is just hard work. My writing skills have improved due to this class and all Ms. Geary had taught me.

The class also offered how to write the base foundation of any paper, which is significant to become a great writer as well as to write a flawless paper.

Though I did lose many style points for sentence variety in my first two papers, I was happy to see that I didn’t lose any style points for sentence variety in my last two papers.

I suggested this because I thought if Khaled introduce the person better, the audience will be able to know why they have to believe his interview. Just like this one, I gave many comments and suggestions that I hope helped my classmates. 4. Discuss your experience giving feedback in a way that shows your critical thinking through the process.

I started to regain my confidence in my writing, but never considered myself above average. I knew I could write decently, but I never enjoyed it. I took the eighth grade writing test at the end of that year. The prompt was decently easy, it was “What is the most important invention ever”. I wrote about how important the wheel was.
Mistakes that I did gave me a reason to improve myself for the next level of writing. Despite all of the good progress I made by taking this class, I still have to make more improvements to make myself a better writer. One of the improvements that I have to do is my grammar skills.

I even did not brainstorm before I began to write.
