I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?

He goes further on to point out that teachers that can relate to students that are intimidated by reading have a great advantage over teachers that may have forgotten what it's like to learn how to think analytically about writing, reading and intellectual
Author E.M. Forster once said, “How do I know what I think until I see what I say?”(Forster). Academic writing has the ability to reveal the students inscribed thoughts and opinions in ways that may surprise even them. The better get at writing analytically, the easier it is for them to apply those skills to other aspects of their life.

If I teach English someday, I want my students to learn how to express themselves when they write. It would be exciting to be able to sit down and read my students papers. After we constructed our essays, we had to complete a peer review activity. I enjoyed helping people look over their essays and give them suggestions on how they could improve their essays. The peer review activity made me open my eyes and see that I enjoy helping
According to John Bishop, “School and homework show students the important life lessons, such as how to read and communicate with others, that they will use as an adult.” Students can learn how important planning, staying organized and taking action is just from doing homework. Homework gives the students an opportunity to learn how to work independently. Although I understand that assigning homework is not beneficial at times, I still believe that assigning homework can teach students many skills and even help teachers. Assigning homework to students is constructive, therefore teachers should assign homework because it allows students to gain responsibility, time-management, perseverance, self-esteem, homework also gives students a chance to review the class material, and it also helps teachers determine how well the lessons and materials are being understood by their students. Above all, homework allows the students to gain responsibility, time-management, perseverance, and self-esteem.
Learning English is important because it makes a person understand about the new culture in a better ways. I got a chance to interview one of American friend of my friend here and I asked him all the questions that I had in my mind about social and academic challenges that I was going through in the US.

He told me that if I feel difficulty in understanding to professor says, then I should start watching English movies or listen to English songs as it will help me to learn about the English accent and slowly, I will develop understanding towards English
Rhetorical strategies don't just convey a piece of writing under a certain category, but place them in a way that truly affect how a reader sees them. Author’s opinion can allow for a reader to connect directly with the tone of work that Roberts is trying to display. Lastly, personal comparisons can make a reader learn from their mistakes by using the information given in the text. All Roberts wants to do is better any writers willing to seriously try, and by following the steps in “How to Say Nothing in 500 Words,” the task becomes much simpler. I have already grown so much from just reading what he has to offer.
When engaging in an interactive read aloud as a teacher, being confident and comfortable in the situation is prevelant for successfully engaging your students to learning and understanding. Being in room 201C and just the enclosed environment of the room made doing this very difficult for me, and I know that it shows in my reading. I also know that there were some positives to take out of this long process to becoming a teacher and improving my ability to do read alouds. I wanted to focus on improving some of the aspects that Dr. Napoli had informed me that I could do better with after our read aloud out in the field. I believe I did a good job at showing the pictures to everyone in the room, even though it might be hard to tell on the video, but with the pictures being an important aspect of a fictional picture book, they deserve just as much attention as the words in the story.
