The graded rubrics of my essays for modules one through four indicate that I was able to produce an essay with a clear purpose, coherent introduction, appropriate voice and tone, audience awareness, proper formatting, an understanding of the assignment, and an effective conclusion. The rubrics also proved that I am aware of how to create a strong topic sentence, and succeed in choosing an understandable and strategic order of paragraphs for each essay. At the start of this course I had trouble with applying my critical thinking and reading skills. In module two I was unable to fully develop my central idea, had no clear structure of support for my argument, and did not consistently establish my claims. In module three I was still struggling with applying these skills even though I improved by a letter grade.

Points made focus on the idea of overlooking the intellectual potential of those who come across as being, “street smart”. Different authors cited in the reading to show how to accept another’s different intellectual. However, we realize that people who come across as being intellectual weren’t always labeled as that.
