In the writing 102 I was able to improved my writing knowledge. Throughout the writing 102 course I was able to improve many critical thinking skills such as. expressing my ideas clearly and rationally, understanding the logical connection between ideas, including my reflective and independent thinking, Understanding the links between ideas, and determining the importance and relevance of arguments and ideas. In addition to the critical thinking skills I learned a lot about the process of academic writing. I learned how to find, gather and manage my ideas.
After nonstop pleading with my parents I finally got the approval to build a forge. For those who don't know what a forge is it is a pan or box that is heated with either propane or coal. My forge was fashioned from an old webster grill a piece of raingutter a shop vac and a touch of duct tape. To get used to using the forge and hammering, I started out with six inch by one half inch bolts, I flattened and twisted the bolts. I soon realized that I had lot more to learn and that I had barely scratched the surface of blacksmithing.
They had to work hard to put my brother and me through college but they imbibed the value of knowledge in us from a young age. I took up engineering as a career due to my innate interest but I was the first in my family to attend a univeristy with diversified community or to choose chemical engineering. So, transition into university was one the hardest things I had to do. I could overcome this and turn things around thanks to the support from faculty, friends and mentors I met later
It drastically decreased my grade point average since I had enrolled in this course with other difficult courses in my schedule; however, I did end up learning a lot from this experience. It taught me to be very aware of what I choose for my courses as a senior in high school and possibly as a freshman at Purdue. This experience also taught me, even though it is a human instinct, not to compare my intelligence to other people, regardless of what grade they are in, what grades they have, or how many more AP courses they are taking. I have also learned to make my own decisions instead of letting others make them for me because if I let others control what I do, then I will risk missing out on following my own unique path and expressing my individuality. Classes are different for everybody since every person has strengths and weaknesses, and everyone is intelligent in a unique way.
In this writing assignment; I will elaborate on how bridging the generation gap in the fire service is important for our fire department’s morale, culture, and well-being. I will share my own personal experiences on why I decided to join the fire service and share what I have learned from my mentors who’ve helped me through my journey so far. I will also reflect on what I have learned and experienced over the past year as a rookie firefighter. I chose this topic for my final writing assignment because I personally feel like I would be able to relate more to the topic since I’ve been exposed to the fire department lifestyle since I was born. Bridging the generation gap in the fire service between the guys who’ve been in for years compared to
I could see myself in the future, working on a new spaceship for Nasa, or designing the most efficient airplane Boeing had ever seen. I continued this all through high school, until my junior year. This is when I decided to take an Introduction to Engineering class. Now the class at first was really fun we learned how to use a program called Autodesk Inventor and I really liked it. Then as time went on I grew less fond of it, and then
There I looked for ways to reduce pollution back home. I soon realized that this would be an extreme test of my skills and mind. School in America was tough for a variety of reasons like being away from home and being alone. I found a tutoring service at the university and immediately used it. Before long I was back on track and doing well in my studies.
Initially when I registered for Interpersonal Communications it was solely to fulfill my USEM requirements and I reckoned the class as nothing more than an obstacle. My sour attitude did not last though, my first class on my very first day of college was my communications class and I felt extremely welcomed and intrigued. These feelings were reinforced when the second day of class brought an interactive outside activity. I happily participated in and the activity it created an enthusiastic impression within me for the classes to follow. In general—even prior to my communications class—I consider myself a skilled communicator and a friend that is more than willing to listen to someone’s struggles; however, I did not recognize how much psychology was behind the way we communicate.
This project has prepared for collage because I have learned time management skills. The time management skill that I have developed has helped me in other classes. My grades are great because of my time management skills and English is the core class that students can learn time management skills. These essays have stressed me, out but if I did not do them, I would not have learned efficient time management
GENERAL REFLECTION Throughout this course, I learned several things about the material covered in class and also about my strengths and weakness when writing. I have become a great writer who thinks critically and uses all the knowledge I have at hand. But even if I improved I know there are many things I could do to enhance my skills as a writer. During this course, several of the assignments tested my analysis skills as well as my reasoning skills. I challenged myself by choosing subjects that required an immense amount of research and consideration while also thinking of how I could set up the paper.
College algebra is fast paced! The work is hard but rewarding up to this point. I’ve found success in studying but realize that I need to keep up with the pace of the class more and by being creative in how I reach my goals. The more I learn, the more I find examples of in society and the world around me. Math 105, is pretty much what I expected in the beginning.
October 14, 2015 Dr. Jennifer Retherford 315 John D. Tickle Building Knoxville, TN 37996 Dr. Retherford: First and foremost, thank you for your comments on my draft of Written Assignment 02 before I officially submitted the document. I found your commentary to be very beneficial because it demonstrated skills of specifically what to look for when reviewing a technical document. I took your remarks into consideration when submitting WA02, but more so during this written assignment as they taught me how to practically break down my paragraphs and sentence structure in order to fortify my paper in addition to what my sources taught. In my WA02 the two principles I was to demonstrate through my writing were “Making Transitions” and “Designing
