In my argument essay, I tried to voice a strong opinion, but fell short. Although our process analysis essays and cover letters haven’t been graded yet, I believe that I portrayed a more confident tone and style in those than I did in my argument essay. While writing those particular essays, I focused more on meeting the requirements sufficiently and voicing my opinion effectively. I believe that gaining this kind of insight on essay-writing is a reflection of improvement in my writing skills and overall
TToday I gave my shield speech, it went better than I thought it would. I'm glad it went well, though because I put a lot of time and effort into my speech. To prepare for my speech I first had to write it obviously. After that I made my poster, that took a few hours. Then I wrote notes on my speech on note cards to help me remember what I was going to say.
I am not going to say that my shift reports are smooth sailing from now on, I still have a lot of improvement. My brain is always so disorganized so it is going to be awhile before I can do this in a systematic way. My plan for improvement is to keep practicing with my peers on shift reports. I am also lacking confidence in myself, so I need to improve on this. I really need to catch myself before I start putting myself down.
With higher comfortability with the class I feel that my need for note cards would have been drastically reduced. If I were to be given the chance to present my speech to the same audience next week I would speak slower, use a few more slides and I would have reached a comfortability level with them that would eliminate the nervousness I felt presenting my persuasive speech to them last time. Altogether I feel that my speech was very well put together and was decently
When it comes to improving these skills, I believe that the only way to do that is to practice and work on incorporating those skills into each essay. I will not become comfortable with those skills unless I force myself to use them. I also found myself struggling to meet the word count requirement, I would easily be able to write a good portion of my essay, but I struggled to stretch and add to my ideas to reach the length requirement. In order to improve this, I need to further develop and elaborate on my ideas in each essay. Prior to AP Language I really enjoyed writing, but during that class my love and ease of writing went away
Developing a concise and compelling speech was not an easy task. I recorded it so many times by the time I was finished with the speech I felt extremely tired. In the end of this assignment, I felt confident about the subject content and how I delivered my message.

These changes made the essay make more sense and gave it better overall readability. One sentence that I changed in my opening paragraph was, “With my mind anxiously looking forward to the adventures to come in my military career, these stories of travel and adventure kept me going and wanting more.” As I read this now I see how it is very vague, and by elaborating on this one sentence it sets the tone of the rest of the paper and it allows the readers to understand the details of my relationship with literacy. The penultimate paragraph in my Literacy Narrative was meant to try and explain my relationship with literacy and how others may be able to use this same idea to have hope and to prepare themselves for situations they may encounter in the future. Again, I was very vague while trying to explain this to the readers.
Verbally Verbal communication has always been a struggle for me; I must admit that I am better at expressing my thoughts and ideas when I write them down on paper. Before attending college, I typically did not think before I spoke and I did not sugar coat my words, which now I realize how this has affected some of my relationships with people and how I had unintentionally hurt people in the past. I find myself still learning and recognizing that this is an area that I anticipate will become more natural to me as I become a more competent nurse. Since this part of communication has been a struggle to me, therapeutic communication was also a struggle when it came to speaking to patients, staff, and taking nursing exams. Through every nursing

Looking in the Past Seeing this year pass by, makes me wonder how much I really accomplished. Wondering what if or what could of I’ve done to make it better would always come up my mind. Both reading and writing aren’t my cup of tea subjects, I really have trouble learning and processing how to really use certain techniques. Witnessing my transformation from the beginning when school started on August, to now ending the semester shows how much I’ve been improving. I look back at all the different forms I’ll be writing and how much advancement I’ve have come too.
I was a bit brought down because I didn’t get my interview. Fortunately I was still able to do a survey and get the perfect amount of results. I feel like my paper is very powerful. I tried to improve my word choice and language so that I wouldn’t get a lower grade like we discussed. Also in general I am just really exited for this topic.
Another reason why is I will get the opportunity to serve my local community; doing more service work will help me to be better as a person. Being in NHS will help build who I am as student. I always want to improve and learn from my flaws. Being in the National Honor Society will not only help me academically but also as a better person to the
I want to push myself to write outside of the class to practice what have we learned until I know I will not and cannot forget it. Another goal is to better understand the rules of grammar, even though I am mostly able to implement them, I am still slightly unsure of when they are used. My third goal would be to clearly communicate my thoughts in the form of an essay. I have always enjoyed writing,
Eleonora Hasani Comm 145 Online “Just Bag it” Speech Self-Evaluation 1. I gained my audience’s attention through an ironic joke. By asking my audience if they hated when people answered their own questions, and then proceeded to answer my own question saying I hated it, I got them interested in what else I had to say. 2. I feel like I introduced by topic clearly by stating in my introduction paragraph that I wanted to give the audience a “glimpse of my life” and then followed it with my thesis that included the three items I was going to talk about. 3.
