Her and I are developing a strong relationship and I am learning how to teach as well as communicate with people that are different than myself. I have shown dedication to my work in everything that I do, and I am prepared to do the same in an AP Language course. Finally, I believe that this course will help me achieve my own goals for the future. I am interested in attending the University of Washington in Seattle, and this course will provide me the information and skills that I need to write that entrance essay, and succeed in the classes that I eventually take. I know that I can achieve all of the goals that I set for myself.
I strived for success. 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.
English 102 through the Alabama Early College Program has taught me the importance of writing skills. When I first began online classes for English, I quickly started learning techniques that I needed to keep up throughout the semester. Each assignment and essay is due at midnight, therefore starting or finishing an assignment early allows the writer enough time to turn in the assignment. Throughout the five modules, I have learned how to write an argument and rhetorical analysis, conduct research and write an exploratory essay. In each module, I learned writing techniques and skills that I never knew before.
The English 121 class itself has been both challenging and rewarding. With the help of my instructor and those at the Writing Lab, I was given specific instruction on what needed correcting on my paper. Since a few different people viewed and pointed out issues they saw with my paper, I felt nothing was overlooked. Each time I visited the lab, I was made aware of any new or still existing issues that I needed to correct with my paper. There were many areas that I needed to address, such as MLA format, citation, grammatical and spelling errors, word choice, and style.
When I look back, I will be grateful for the opportunity to overcome one of my fears-public speaking. In AP English, I learned several useful lessons. First, I learned that time management is crucial. The time given to complete an essay must be used effectively. Many times I found myself waiting till the last minute to complete an assignment.
Prior to AP Language I really enjoyed writing, but during that class my love and ease of writing went away and I often found it to be dull and like a chore. However, after being in VU Composition I feel that my ease of writing has returned and I am able to focus more on improving the details and content of my essays. Even though meeting word requirements can often be tedious, be my last essay, I found it to be an easier task to
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.
I have spent most of my student life assuming that since I fluently spoke English back home and had the ability to understand different circumstances I did not realize that writing was a part of it obviously, I thought I did not need to study it as I would a foreign language like Chinese or French, but it was a whole lot different thing when I get in here two years ago. On enrolling as a freshman, I immediately realized that I would need more language skills, especially reading and writing skills. I understand that I have to learn how to use the language effectively because the bulk of my course work require reading, research, analysis, and writing skills. English 1301 class affords me a timely opportunity to acquire proper writing skills at the beginning of my college education. The class will prepare me effectively for academic scholarship, to fulfill my future career being a doctor, and, everything that I am going to do in
When I began Writing 101, I was not familiar with much of the course material and my writing skills were not developed; through the assignments and learning resources, I have now developed the skill set to develop thesis statements and complete coherent essays. In week one of Writing 101, the class was introduced to the writing process for college level writing. We focused on reading and note taking strategies to help assist us with starting and finishing the writing process. We also learned how to identify and correct sentence fragments. Our first writing assignment was due in week
