English 2 Reflection

Good Essays
English 2 is a class that is really different than the writing class I took before. In my previous writing class, the professor will give us really detailed prompt and explanation to guide us through our essay. But in English 2 is different, the professor did give us the prompt and explanation. However, beside these elements, the professor tend to let us do our own work. In the beginning I thought this is a little bit challenging because everything was so vague, and I feel like I am walking in the fog due to the lack of explanation and unclear directions.

After this simple but because of my topic so it becomes complicated assignment, I believe I learned how to effectively locate, interpret, and evaluate evidence in order to support my idea.

I believe if the academic semester is longer, I could learn more than just these
