What Is Reading Reflection Essay

Good Essays
Over the course of this semester my abilities as a writer have immensely improved as I practice writing more essays. When I began this class my skills were sub-par and basic when it came to style or focus.

Not only does this keep the paragraphed focused, but the details support the topic logically. Within these body paragraphs the transition of information is from topic to evidence to analysis, which prevents confusion of where to put ideas or quotes. While using evidence to support the topic was something I focused on, I now use evidence more effectively and efficiently and should receive a score of three and seven tenths out of four
