I have improved vastly in certain areas of the class, such as constructing drafts, learning MLA documentation, and becoming familiar with my audience. I deserve to pass English 1121 because I have fulfilled all of the learning outcomes required for the course. My writing skills have improved enormously in this class. I have learned the importance of writing several drafts. Creating a rough draft and then simply changing a few things would then produce a poorly written paper.
2. This passage from Junot Diaz’s Brief Wondrous life of Oscar Wao is significant because it initiates the growing tension between Oscar and his love for comic books. Oscar is fascinated by the idea of superheroes which developed his interest to write comic books. Oscar only had a wish to have a girlfriend, but the fact that Oscar’s love for comic books and sci-fi animes was not allowing him to have a girlfriend. These comic books and animes in a way distract him from seeing that what is happening in the world which makes him ill-informed about the world.
In summary, the absence of the lip scar in the movie adaptation of The Kite Runner takes away much of the understanding of the characters and major themes within the novel.

The grade that I think to earn in Eng 1010 is an A. I practiced writing more frequently by keeping a daily journal. The journal helped to make writing a familiar part of my life and served as a continuing source of ideas for papers. I also wrote many helpful and important essays in
I found most of the information they used to be unreliable, irrelevant and hard to apply as reliable data for the purpose of the author’s argument. The website that the article was published on, The Economist, I have not had any experience on and was unfamiliar with the reliability of the articles published on the site. After reading this article, however, I will be very vigilant in how I scrutinize any information that I may use from that site, as I did not find this article to be very convincing or accurate in its data. I also didn’t appreciate the fact that the author chose to use his/her initials rather than a full name. I have no idea as to who this person is or what kind of experience they may have.
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.
Reflection English 101 was a great experience for me. I learned a lot about forming a proper essay. From the introduction, the thesis, the body, down to the conclusion. Grammatically, I learned the proper usage of commas. Prior to taking this course, I thought that you use a comma wherever you take a breath.
If it was well known that art was done in the way Tim implies it is done, then there would be no questioning. The fact that this process of using the Camera Obscura is new to the audience leaves many doubts. Everything Tim does throughout the film could also be considered the opposite of art as well, because there is this stigma with art, the audience has a hard time seeing Tim as an artist. The truth is what Tim did was something most viewers have never seen before. Because the viewer believes that the meaning of art contains originality, skill, and imagination the meaning begins to wear
The time and effort that I put in my paper revealed to me how much I wanted to perfect my writing. Another thing I found out about myself when writing was that I struggled many times to find a synonym for terms that were too simple. I spent quite a bit of time searching online for synonyms that had the correct meaning and yet sounded scholarly in my paper.
As a senior, 39C might come a little bit later for me. Because normally students sill finish their lower writing class before they become junior. The reason why I entered 39 system this later is because I took five times Academic English series before I become a junior. So, my journey of becoming a writer is long and difficult. Until I took 39C, I thought my writing journey would end up miserably.

Another tool that I thought was helpful to me during my assignments was the synthesis matrix. The synthesis matrix is my favorite tool and I will continue to use this throughout the rest of my courses. It made comparing, contrasting, and combining different sources at one time very easy. It gave me a head start on the literature review and it made it come together more easily. It also made my major assignment, the research prospectus to seem less stressful than the actual literature review
Everyone needs to struggle in order to preform better. Writing has always been a strength of mine, but I found it a challenge to move from the high school, six-paragraph essay format that I had grown accustomed to. Throught the course of this semester, I was able to acquire many different skills in ENG 1101 that have helped me transition into more complex writing. These include various writing techniques, MLA formatting, writing for purpose, convincing my arguments and finding and properly using sources. The portfolio I have submitted is comprised of three works of writing that I completed for ENG 1101 over the last three months.
I also improved on my writing of theses and introductory paragraphs. As far as presenting, I learned invaluable skills such as memorization, comprehension/interpretation of texts, and physical presence/vocal projection. And I realized that a more difficult task isn’t always something to fear, but an experience to learn and strengthen skills. For the future, I aim to further strengthen my language skills, and to strengthen my writing of arguments and overall structures of
