How have I improved as a writer?

English 102 Reflection During the course of English 102, I took this year of the spring semester. I have accomplished a variety of goals I once thought were impossible. I have not only grown as a writer and a student but as an individual as well. I feel that through my experience of this English course, I have achieved knowledge and self-confidence to step out into the real world.
Five years from now I will definitely remember AP English 11. In five years, I will look back at the daunting task of writing a speech and present it to the class. The final speech was a task that required me to leave my comfort zone: I had to share the reason why I dedicated a large portion of my time to practicing. In addition, It was an assignment that I have never done before. When I look back, I will be grateful for the opportunity to overcome one of my fears-public speaking.
This past year in English has been rewarding and self-fulfilling. I entered the year as a new and improved Poppers in writing essays. A glance at my first paper- an essay on Ender's Game- and my last one in 9th grade, the This I Believe essay, is a great example of the incredible differences in my writing which quickly improved as a freshman. However, entering sophomore year I was struck with the false belief that I was done learning about how to write and that from then on would just be about gaining more experience. How wrong I was.
My experience in English 1010 was great. My writing skills were very poor at the beginning of the semester. I did not know how to write correct sentence structure. I had great difficulties making my sentences flow smoothly and clearly. I was not able to edit a paragraph for mistakes in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
There are other areas in my writing that I have improved on. I have improved on my grammar, verb constructions, use of verb tenses and organizational skills to make my writing flow better when reading. My overall progress in completing this ten weeks course was wonderful. Every steps and skills I learned in this English class will help me to improve on my writing skills in my other classes and will also help me in my future
Writing had always been one of my strengths, but it was challenging to take that initial step past the sixth form style of writing essays. Moving past this phase has greatly opened my mind. My thoughts are now able to be more complex because I have learned how to maintain a logical argument in a structured
I felt like all the practices and processes were very beneficial to improve my writing skills. I will take all skills to English 5, but specifically Swales movement and Huckin’s methodology. These two made the most sense and really helped improve my writing. Sentence variety, for example, NPA will definitely be of use and I plan to use all sentence improvements for next semester.
I’ve grown as a student of English this term. I worked on several things including my weaknesses, what i struggle with on a daily basis and even my strengths. Doing this has helped me become a better reader, writer, thinker and a better person. I’ve also use the resources available, like going to tutoring and asking for help when i still feel stuck on something. Going for help is much better than trying to figure out for myself what i needed to work on.
Walking into my AP English class, one gloomy October afternoon, I was pleasantly surprised with a 100% written across the top of my essay. It was the first time I had ever received a perfect score on an essay. I was, undoubtedly, pleasantly surprised; however, inwardly, I knew how much effort I had to put in to excel in a language that used to be alien to me.
My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting. Also, I sent my paper to The Writing Center, after I submitted my paper to my instructor to see any other mistakes I could have to improve my writing skills.
