Since, The Westing Game, is a very demanding book you have plenty of ‘ah’ moments. These are important to have because they help you discover, imaginate, and understand the book a little better. Asking questions has made my close reading improve. Ellen Raskin helped me understand that it is important to have both high and low questions. Ellen Raskin uses quantities of figurative devices.
The transitions could have be made clearer if the author made the paper longer and spent a little more time on it. Since the essay is choppy then the message that the author is trying to comunitate. Which she seemed to state in one paragraph that one should go to college but in the next she gives reasons not to go. For example in the first paragraph she states that there is a higher unemployment rate for those that do not go to college but in the next paragraph she states that Bill Gates seemed to be doing just fine without a college degree. So there is a sense of unclarity concerning whether the author recommends people to go to college or not.
In my Self-Inventory Essay it is very noticeable that my organization is a problem. It is visible that I don’t have good transitions into and out of each paragraph; first off I use “my first strength”, “my second strength” which are very plan and simple. In my Comparative Analysis Essay we can wee that I have come up with better transitions to make the whole essay seem more organized, for example I used more specific transitions like “In Amy Tans Mother Tongue” and for the paragraph after it I used “This shows that the” which make it flow better and be more concise.
I thought Lewis did an amazing job at displaying just how meaningful a little bit of correctly used punctuation could be; He does it throughout the entire essay with all the other types of punctuation; Although, I was a little bummed out at the end when he was talking about the dash and poetry. This part of his essay seemed like it had a completely different tone altogether to me; it wasn’t as comical and I had a harder time understanding the correct and incorrect usage of these two things. Overall, I thought this essay was really funny, and I enjoyed reading it when initially I was dreading it, but it was good, and I’m glad I took the time to give it a
Once completing multiple personality tests; thus I was finally able to confirm ESTJ as my personality type. Since I was getting unsuited suggestions of career choices, I retook the test until ESTJ was able to fit more of my interests and viewpoints. The 16 Personalities Test results gave me a more detailed description of who I am and insight on my personality traits. It has helped me figure out aspects that can help me get a better understanding of myself.
Writing about this helped me learn multiple stuff, I think that this bunch of information I just learned today may someday help me in the future. When I reread this essay and I see all the information Ive written down it honestly makes me think of how important it is to respect yourself, Ive noticed this when I talked about how important it is to be different. I undoubtelly enjoyed reading Harrison Bergeron, because it woken up my perspectives on how good individuality can be, and that it 's okey to be
Regarding the extent to which I became flexible through my voice, I believe that this part of my writing remained static throughout. Although my voice isn't degrading to the entirety of the essay, it stayed the same in terms of performance. For the future, my hope is to bring more curiosity to the reader in terms of the topics I discuss, and the way I go about discussing them. It is essential that I include multiple tone switches during the dialogue in my essays, so I do not lose interest from the audience. Using everything that we have learned in this class--like creating a mood and having an engaging voice--it is my goal to become more self-aware
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.
I will be revising my Rhetorical Analysis Essay for the reflective essay. This is because I never wrote a rhetorical analysis essay before doing so in this course. As a result, I believe that this essay will provide great amounts of content to discuss about how I revised my essay. Also, I made substantial changes from my rough draft to my final draft when writing this essay. Therefore, I will use the AP rhetorical analysis essays, peer editing comments, my rough draft, my final draft, my post-write, and writing center comments as evidence to help support my claims about my revision claims.
On many levels my style of writing has changed, I believe that I have got a lot better in my writing. It’s still very clear that I have a lot of areas that I need to work on. At first, I couldn’t actually believe the grade that I received on my diagnostic essay, that grade gave me hope that I would be able to past this class. Overall, I believe that I have improved or changed in these areas, writing in a style that clearly communicates meaning, builds credibility, and inspires belief or action, developing ideas and synthesize primary and secondary sources within focused academic arguments, including one or more research- based essays, and formulating a thesis and argument appropriate for an academic audience that analyzes literature and/or
He/she went from something complicated to something more clear and clean. Also, he/she used more examples while he was talking about the rhetorical choices to make himself more understandable and persuasive. However, in his later draft, he still did not use an attention getter, which is something that for me was necessary because writers need to convince the readers that they need to read the essay. Secondly, the author kept the quotation in his conclusion, which as I previously said was not necessary because he already convinced his audience of what Jaschik was arguing about, who he was trying to persuade, and why he was trying to persuade. So, for me the author should still eliminate that
It took time, to find the right format, research my questions on what the font or order of the content would be. It was interesting and fun to write a different type of writing style. I improved on Information Skills by that I learned what kind of sources professors/teachers love and what sources they dislike. I also learned that there is no harm in asking the teacher what kind of sources they suggest. This has proven to be helpful and decreased the amount of time I would have spent on researching for
I also focused on ways to make my argument less wordy and concentrated on getting to the point quickly. In order to add to the effectiveness of my argument, I revised my paragraphs to include a straight-forward topic sentence. I feel that this revision really strengthened my argument and now allows for the reader to follow what
While taking English 090, I have learned to overcome this fear. Getting feedback from others during workshop days was very useful because I received tips on how to make changes to your paper to make it stronger. This gave me the opportunity to practice my critical reading/thinking skills by actively reading our partners papers. This also gave us the freedom to leave remarks in the margins of others’ essay to not only help them, but help ourselves learn. While writing the unit 3 paper, I got to practice and meet the course objective of actively reading.
