Connor, you did a wonderful job on your essay. It appears that you grasped the material and for the most part you articulate your ideas in a clear, concise manner. The examples you provided in the second paragraph helped to strengthen your argument. One suggestion I have is to work of varying your syntax. It will help will the flow of your essay. Another suggestion I have is to vary your wording. At times the wording of your essay makes it tricky to understand the point you are trying to make. I think that you could have expanded your summarization on the mutual coercion aspect of the essay. You provided an in depth analysis of Hardin’s argument until this point. The abrupt change in your writing style makes the end of the paragraph seem slightly

Unit 2: EA2 Argumentative Essay Reflection What I feel I did well on this argumentative essay was my research. I had many sources that provided me with facts and statistics and they helped me to decide what side I was on. There were many sources that I did not use but that I had read through. What I struggled with was commentary.
Prejudices and, more specifically, racial prejudices have been a plague on society for an extensive amount of time. Most believe that the worst of racial prejudices are in the past and that society has moved past them; however, Brent Staples argues that society is nowhere near past these prejudices. Staples argues this through his great use of rhetorical strategies to implement credibility and emotion into his essay. The first strategy that Staples uses to convey his message is his use of credibility to appeal to his audience.

Reflecting back on my Initial Reflection I wrote at the beginning of Writing 122, one area that I wanted to work on was being able to master all the parts in an enthymemic style essay. After 4 more essays, I believe that I can write a beautiful essay incorporating all parts of an enthymemic style essay. Through this class, I’ve developed my skills in argumentation and learned how to better introduce paragraphs. When writing my next piece, I will try to be more conscious about all the little things that need to be done to really make a good essay. I have a good grip on the basics but mastering the little things will still require some practice.
Over the course of English 1302 at Texas Tech, I feel that my skills as a writer improved significantly. When beginning the class, I knew little about writing a literature review or researched argument. With the help of my instructor’s lectures and the University Writing Center, I was able to effectively get my point across effectively while forming a well developed and well spoken manner. The advice given to me about argumentative essays and integrating sources helped significantly over the course of this class, and the skills learned in English 1302 helped me in other classes this semester when writing as well. One of the things I have learned that influenced me the most was my professor’s advice about an argument.
I disagree that the Constitution is an “agreement with Hell,” because although there may be some sections that aren't ideal, the American Constitution is remarkable because it has the ability to change and adapt to the times. William Lloyd Garrison, a famous abolitionist, proposed that all states that don't keep slaves should secede from the Union because he felt that the Constitution heavily supported slavery. His argument is now not valid because the Constitution has been amended, and now slavery is illegal. No one today could claim that the United States as a nation supports slavery. William Wells Brown, a former slave, also advocated for the nullification of the Constitution.
Make sure it is in a distant and formal third person. Remember, just the facts. Do not critique it or offer personal insight...yet. Paragraph 2 is a brief analysis. Consider
I took the time to write out an outline for this essay to help manage the chaos that is my writing, unlike my other essays for the course. As I said before, I have learned to question the structure of my paragraphs. For example: when I was revising the Composing Process essay, I noticed that a set of paragraphs could be rearranged and partially rewritten to improve the structure and make the essay flow better. However, I would argue that my Justification video assignment demonstrates my assertion better than my revised essays. From the beginning, I laid out a clear path that my Justification video needed to follow.
ENG-122 Reflective Essay My writing process has changed tremendously over the course of this class. I feel more accomplished, confident and I feel sometimes that my ideas and thoughts just come in to my mind out of nowhere and I start writing about anything now. I pay attention to my punctuation and grammar more as I have polished them more now, not only when I write but then others write as well. I am constantly looking for errors and I highly think this is helping me a lot in my career.
My expectations coming into the course were high and remained high throughout the duration of the course. The essays I wrote in the class really challenged me to progress in my writing skills. The illustration essay really served as an example of what not to do when writing at a college level. My approach of the essay was really misunderstood and grammatically incorrect.
Ms. Hoffman, I hope you are doing well and that your schedule is not too hectic with junior and senior English classes all day! If you have time this weekend, I was wondering if you would be willing to look over an essay I am currently writing for my honors composition class. We had to read "Panopticism" by Michel Foucault and, much like your class, we had to choose our own arguments to write about with a thesis statement. I received a 95% on the first paper I wrote for this class, but my professor advised that I use more clarity in my essay.

Final Exam Essay During this spring semester of English Composition two it taught me how to expand my writing ability to the fullest. The class taught me how to write a paper in the humanities, social science, and natural science. Within each one of the disciplines it had a different format that continues to add on to my forever growing knowledge of English, and how the writing style differs between each other. To kick off the semester, our first paper was in the natural science discipline.
