Certain strengths can help individuals stand out. My weaknesses include revision and grammatical errors, while my strength is connecting to the audience. One thing I struggle with in writing is the revision of my paper. My definition of “revision” would
Maybe, they taught me what they thought I needed to know in college. Perhaps it was what they did in college so they didn’t know they weren’t teaching me well enough. But in my opinion, I think they knew better. Most of my English teachers were fresh out of college or still in college receiving a higher degree, so they should have taught me better than they
Peer Mediators must learn how to decipher from two sides of an argument, then suggest a solution that both party's can agree to. Peer Mediators must understand skills like attentive listening. Without attentive listening the Mediator could become lost in the argument. Note taking is also a good skill for Peer Mediators to practice so they can reflect back to the problems of each
It is essential that differences between objectivity and subjectivity are found in an article, so the reader can form their opinion with either facts they learned or the emotions they gathered from the article. If the reader does not fully inspect or understand the many perspectives a topic could have, they could form a bias or judgment that might be entirely deceitful to the actual topic they 're researching
Positive language – positive language is about using phrases that show that you are taking responsibility for your actions and that you value people’s opinions and show that you can learn from others Negative language – negative language is using phases like ‘to be honest…’ this shows that you are most likely not an honest person and have lied in the past. Leaving out that ‘to be honest…’ at the start of a sentence makes it more positive’ Active engagement – active engagement is listening to someone but also taking part and asking questions, this more likely to help you to learn and understand something. Sitting there passively will not necessarily help you at
This is because people make assumption about think which they have little knowledge of, and this is more harmful than helpful. I learned that this method correlates back to the lesson on tolerance. Before we decide that something is intolerable, we should learn about it and why that group of people believe it is best for
Some student argue that college writing is very similar to high school writing and that’s why they think it is unnecessary to take a writing class in college. I believe that the students who believe college writing is exactly like high school writing are wrong because writing expectations are different in college. For some students across the U.S. a college writing class is very useless and a waste of time but on the other hand many more student across the nation need to take a writing class due to their poor grammar and subpar communication skills and would greatly benefit from this course. In this nation communication is a major key to being successful because in every job you need to be able to communicate with you peers and coworkers to get a certain task done, so our nation would benefit by making a writing class mandatory. To be given approximately 2 hours per week to primarily focus on writing is extremely beneficial to students because even though many students think college writing is a waste of time in reality it doesn
College is a point in your life that no one can prepare you for, it is just a portion of life that you have to experience for yourself. In my college career, I believed that English was the subject that I did not need to worry about because of my advanced background of English and even taking two AP classes and subsequent test for the subject. Unfortunately, when attending college you realized there are people who have the same background as you and some even better, but what tends to be the difference is the writing of each student. Writing is not something that can be learned in the same context in teaching an AP class and this was the first lesson I learned in my first-year composition. The name itself, F2F (Face-to-Face) Studio stood out on my schedule, but I did not think anything of it because it qualified as English and that was fine with me.
Karl Lagerfeld once said, “Personality begins where comparison ends”. When trying to figure out who you are as a person and what your personality is like it is often tempting to compare your personality traits and states to those of the people around you. However, this is tends to do more to confuse than help when trying to figure out your own personality. Only by looking at yourself and the bigger picture your personality traits and states create that you can truly understand yourself and your personality. The two assessments taken before this assignment are designed to help with this process.
When it came to that stuff I always wanted to do things my way or on my own and told myself I was better than my peers and they had nothing to offer. As I got into this quarter of college here at Olympic, boy was I wrong about what people had to offer when it came to work on the writers’ workshop in Mrs. Hoves’ English class. I can say as of now I enjoy being a part of a group or team because of this class. Another course outcome I felt I had to overcome is reading in general especially during the reading plus and then answering questions to what story I read. In the beginning I used to think how can I read a 2000 word story and then reflect on it?
A researcher must use credible sources in his or her argument for readers to be contended with his or her argument. For sources to be credible the researcher should sort various sources to determine the fairest and clearest sources. It is a good practice to recognize shortcoming and biases from each source. Using evidence in the research is important to prevent generalization of the argument since one is able to point out an opposing point of view. It is important for any argument in the research to have critics since readers are able to know how different people view the same topic under discussion before making their
