If I take more time to edit my essay and make it well thought out and clear to others, I should be able to have a better structure and correct grammar.

It effected my end process by helping me understand and convey clearly to others what the speech meant and what appeals were used, however, if I spent more time prewriting, my essay could have been

Without the correct guidance, this statement may hold true for some students, but if teachers recognize that technology, like anything else, must be monitored and used only in proper context, that danger disappears. Technology can even be blended with traditional learning in order to maximize efficiency. Students could be asked to read a work of classic literature such as Shakespeare and later be asked to post on an online discussion board about their interpretations and reading experiences. In the end, students will learn more through technology because it provides a setting in which they are able to understand and relate to the information.

I find it helps me understand something better when it is broken down into sections. Every writer has a different writing style. Maruis’ proposes and explains different writing styles with great detail; Hale’s article get straight to the point.

After the feedback from Cynthia for my responses and essays, I have more confidence in skills as I convinced myself that I was a better storyteller than an essay writer.

As a student at Iowa State University, I have been introduced to a broader realm of English mechanisms at the professional level. During the semester, I was able to apply the skills I have learned in this class and others to my papers.

While reading the assigned articles, Begley and Heilbroner, I left comments in the margins as well as underlining quotes that stuck out to me that I could potentially use in my essay. Another objective that I struggled with is the idea of properly combining my ideas with the ideas of others. I understand that doing this can make your paper stronger. It can help open more doors and help you go someplace in your paper you didn’t think you could go.
