My Learning Summary What I Have Learned About Writing Notably, during this semester, I have learned about the importance of the first word of a paragraph and the last words.

Anh T Vo Dr. Oxendine Engl 1301-81057 18 December, 2015 Reflection Before my English 1301 class started, I made a commitment for myself that I would get an A in this class. In order to achieve this goal, I make some short-term goals, try my best, and consider my behavior. All actions and thoughts, which I have made in this course, give me a fresh result as the end of the semester is coming. Being an ambitious student offers me opportunities to keep encourage myself study hard and believe that my effort will be paid off. Before this course started, I bought a required book.
All throughout my high school years I had a lot of trouble writing essays. I would constantly ask my teachers for help but I personally believe that I didn’t receive the adequate help to become a better writer. At the end of my senior year is when I encountered one of the most challenging writing assignments.
An excellent writer might revise their work by adding missed words or phrases, fix misspelled words, or reorganize their thoughts. Revision gives the writer a chance to see if their writing is really worth saying and if the reader will understand it. The writer should think “Does the introduction clearly state what you intend it to? Will your aims be clear to the reader?” My opinion about writing has changed positively because i now understand why writing is important for daily life.
In the past few weeks, I have seen myself grow step by step to become a good writer. I have had to work on essays which took time and effort and a few corrections from my peers and my professor. I have become accustomed to new writing skills and techniques which I believe will be of great use in years to come. I intend to incorporate corrections provided in class and even in peer group discussions into my writing. I believe learning is a process which demands discipline and proper guidance.
Throughout the semester in English 1102, I have been challenged to explore how love has affected my life. For this portfolio, I tried to incorporate the theme of love in a personal way.

I think this is a perfect example of love.
I never thought I could handle you being away from me. It has been exactly 11 months and two days since you have left me on this Earth. I am doing well with my life right now. I’m finally a senior and I have a job. I have been doing fine in school, but I know for sure what you would say, “You can always do better”.
Throughout this semester, I have made many great achievements and improved my writing skills drastically. This class has helped me improve my writing skills with grammar and methods for writing. I have also learned what I need to improve on, which includes effectively using quotes and writing narrative pieces. Many of the assignments in this portfolio are argumentative; I believe this style of writing is best for me. Overall, these assignments are the best I have written this semester.
I always believed English wasn't my strong-suit and now I had a very poor English1 grade to prove it. What I didn't realize at the time was that I had improved tremendously in my writing over the year. When I had an easier time in English2, I began to notice the improvement. It began with the first writing assignment of sophomore year.
English 10 Honors has been an invaluable learning experience filled with many opportunities to showcase knowledge and to learn new ideas. I began the year coming off a successful year in Honors English 9 where I learned important writing and reading comprehension skills. I feel this year I was successful with reading and interpreting text and I believe that I made big strides in my writing and in my command of the English language.
Throughout this semester, I have learned a lot from this class about my strengths and weaknesses in my writing and my preparation for in class writing. From the writing opportunities that were available in this semester, I have understand that my technical skills, like grammar are one my strengths in writing. Moreover, another strength of mine is that I am willing to revise my work, so it can be free of errors. However, I have realize that I have many weaknesses in my paragraph and essay writing, and this is mostly caused by lack of development in the ideas that I put in my writing. On the other hand, I realized that my writing has improved when I compare my recent assignment to the first assignment that I did in this class, I can clearly see
