You have to check your own grades. When you take college classes you need to remember when to turn in papers and reflections because it is your work. I had to be accountable for turning my papers and reflections in on time because it was my grade on the line. This class has pushed me to organize my work and take a look at my time management skills. I did this by writing out the die dates and making sure I was using all of my free time in school to complete my assignments.
The comments from my instructor, the online material, my research, the online writing center and comments from other students in the discussion boards have helped me so much to improve my writing skills. In the writing process, the step that I feel I have improved a lot is editing, as I am constantly reading my writings and editing them as I finish them, over and over again before I publish them. The steps in the writing process that I like the most are finding a topic in the Pre-writing step and Drafting. I like having a lot of ideas floating around and think about which idea is the best and the most exciting topic to talk about. Drafting for me is pretty similar, as also my ideas are coming into my mind at no speed limit and I try to focus in one at the time, at that moment, I am not thinking about
If a writer reacts badly to this it may escalate to a dangerous and violent level that would stain the writer’s reputation. A writer must also make sure what they writing is strong and well informed by researching and finding information. Since most writers have to do a great deal of research, they should have a love for reading so that they will not get bored and unmotivated while finding research. Writing can be tremendously difficult so having these characteristics can help make
When doing the proposal, I had to figure out how to properly state my thesis and have it linked into the rest of the paper. When working on the proposal, I had to rewrite my thesis many times until it was able to relate to the audience and purpose of my paper. Another way that ENC1102 has helped me with my struggles has been to be able to go deeper into explaining my points. Whenever I had points I had to make in an essay or any work for my classes, I have
In most cases, my struggle is when I am put under a timer. The fear of being rushed causes me to panic more than necessary, hindering my ability to effectively convey my thoughts. I believe I can overcome this hurdle by becoming more confident in myself as a student and a writer. As a student, I have to assure myself that I believe
I was expecting a course that would help me developed all aspects of my English skills: listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Instead, this course focused solely on academic essay. Before attending this course, I did not know much about academic essays. I had only written argumentative essays without any clear structure. Attending this course made me realized I prefer writing articles than writing academic essays.
From the start, you have commented on my text stating that it “challenges the reader,” and that “you love [my] sentence style”. The feedback that you provided on my Personal Essay stayed intact throughout the semester, and was even more available in my Destination Essay. I had “interesting ideas” and “big moments” for the audience, according to you. Based on these comments, my self-awareness regarding my voice improved greatly in each assignment. I grew as a writer in the sense that I provided riveting topics and ideas for the reader each and every time; I felt that I engaged the audience well because I was able to switch up the mood occasionally.
Writing is an essential part of the day-to-day interaction in the academic community, so each it’s member should excel in this skill and follow the essential writing conventions. By being a part of Writing 39 B class, I have studied many important rules of the academic writing, which will help me to succeed in my future career. I believe that my academic texts have considerably improved during this course. I became an active member of the academic community with good and competent writing skills. My skills in work with sources, MLA format and argument have greatly improved, which one can see from my Portfolio, RA essay and RIP project.
So, I questioned myself, "What it takes to finally be familiar with those rules?" This experience taught me that writing is not the same as speaking and that requires me to have skills that go along with it. Writing this particular assignment about 9/11 as a topic has taught me what is like to deal with writing a research paper in a college-level, for the first time in my senior year. That was for my high school broadcasting class. However, after I gave my paper to my teacher, Mr. Williams, the next day he told me that it still had a lot of errors in it.
However, I did learn through my years of schooling that being able to read is key to success in any field of employment. I had a personal drive to be able to understand what I am reading, no matter what it may be such as an article in a magazine, a memo from supervisors or policy and procedures of a company. In my spare time, I would read as much as I could to learn new words. Since I come across words every day that are spoken to me that is not understood, I would research the words to better understand what was being discussed. Still to this day, it has become a habit of mine to read any random piece of writing to ensure my understanding continues to grow.
Many students of all ages have issues with writing, the only way to get better at writing is to have experience. I never paid much attention to my writing skills while in high school, I simply did not care about writing. This year as a freshman in college, I have struggled with writing this semester in GSW 1100. Even though I have not been passing papers, I understand that writing in college is extremely important to learn and develop. This is important because most courses in college have writing in them.

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. In the beginning of the year I believe i had a strong enough command on English conventions but definitely with room for improvement.In my opinion, the assignments that most exemplified the assessment of English conventions, as well as reading and writing, were the Zeitoun and 1984 long compositions. Take for example my first sentence from the Zeitoun long comp, “Human nature is a fickle thing, no one person being perfect”.
AP classes are said to be very hard, of course very challenging, and that they suck the living life out of you. However, regardless of that, I still choose it, because I believe that the more of writing skills you have, the better. I can’t have enough of English skills, because there is always something I can improve on. With all the different literary techniques, I can write better essays.
Throughout my high school career, I never truly understood how to write a successful essay. I always just slapped random information down on a piece of paper and turned it in hoping for the best grade possible. By taking dual credit english, I have learned that organization is key to writing a successful paper. In order to have a good structure, one must start off with a powerful thesis. The thesis is the main sentence of an essay.
