People always ask me how I do so well in school, how I have the energy to do all the homework, study for the tests, do extra curricular activities, and never give up. My answer is: you sacrifice to pay back those who sacrificed for you. My parents left their families, their friends, the world they knew, just so their kids could have the chance to one day be the best. And I will be the best. For my parents.
Out of all the major papers we wrote, the major narrative was my favorite. It was very personal to me and I was able to portray words on paper that I had thought about for years. I feel that I accurately described how I felt about my family situation and was able to make my reader feel the same way that I do. This was also the essay that I received my highest grade on. Narratives are my favorite type of writings.
supported with proof in the form of facts and examples. I used this method with my sons starting in 6th grade. It took a few examples before they understood the concept, but once they understood it they could write about any subject. In an outline the student can decide on the method of presentation and order of importance, assists the student in judging if they have enough proof to back up their inference. If the child comes up with only one proof detail under a specific category, perhaps that category needs to be revised.
I liked what I had written, and I wanted to keep it, but I had to figure out if it was possible for me to shape it into following the structure of a vignette from House On Mango Street. Instead of analyzing others writing, I had to analyze my work to find my over arching theme, and see if I was using any figurative language
"An Hour with Abuelo" by, Judith Ortiz Cofer illustrates the theme of hope and high ideals or goals. In the story it says "And I think he could've been a teacher if he wanted it bad enough.

Nevertheless, I was determined to finish the class with at least a B average. After getting a tutor, getting help after school, and studying harder I accomplished my goal. The value that every decent human being should have is respect. My family, especially my grandpa, always tells me that respect will take you where money will not. Without respect, it is impossible to form positive relationships.
My 1st grade teacher said you’re the generation that’s gonna change everything. The day I read the part saying something like “You’re gonna change the world.” I had an instant connection with the book. I always felt like I had a reason to be in this world. I’m here for some reason, and I may not know until i’m 20, 30 or even 40. We all have a reason so make that reason worth it.
Today, we are gathered here to remember and celebrate the life of a dearly loved friend, neighbor, lawyer, and most importantly father. Atticus Finch was loved by many. From a young age, my father taught me, not only simple things such as right and wrong, but life long lessons. As a young girl, I didn’t always realize what he was doing but he managed to sneak in a lesson in just about everything we did. I used to think Atticus was the an epitome of absolutely everything I thought was a perfect father, I now know that he was in fact.
I think without the knowledge from this class I would not have done as well as I did on that paper. That is why I am grateful for this class because it helps me write papers for others classes and do well. In the end, Dual English Comp has caused me a lot of stress but it has also opened my mind up to writing a successful college paper. I learned new things from writing a thesis to the correct apostrophe positions, to how to cite things correctly. My high school English class never taught me any of the things I have learned in here, so now I can proudly say when I go off to college that I know how to write a college academic essay because of Dual English
One lesson that I learned regarding future team experiences is that a team name and a contract are crucial. This was also my first time creating a Gantt chart and I intend to use them in all my future team projects, it’s a great way to stay organized and make sure everything is on track. A contract cuts down on confusion, I have had way too many team projects where the consequences of not participating were unclear, some team members had no idea what their responsibilities were, who was in charge of what parts, when team meetings were, and when team due dates were. For previous team projects, I always tried to create an outline, but a contract and a Gantt chart really helped tremendously and I realized that the starting/planning stages of any team are crucial to the long-term success of a team. I also learned the importance of how my attitude during a training could influence the trainees’.
