During this semester, the peer review sessions have been most helpful, and especially helpful when paired with students who are more knowledgeable than I. Moreover, when going into these peer review sessions, most of the time I had a very rough draft of the assigned essay, but after the session, I knew exactly which steps I needed to take to improve my work.

After that, I took their feedback, revised, and then turned it into my professor to get more feedback. Once I got my professor’s feedback, I then could revise as many times as I wanted. You are probably thinking this sounds a lot like what I did for your class. I realized once again after having your class, that revising my papers makes them much stronger. I was able to improve on the way I wrote for this genre through exploding the moment and setting the scene for my audience, which made it stand out more.
I focused on high school students as a target while I wrote a screenplay because I was a high school student at that time too. I thought I could write something familiar with students and touch their emotions. The story was about four high school students and the conflict they suffered in the story was the exact same thing that I was faced with which was studying hard for the future and doing nothing or make some good memory with friends. I wanted to make a story to tell everyone has same conflicts and struggling at their age, and I wanted to encourage the audience through the show. Only story I want to make is something influences audience’s emotion and point of view in good
In my first semester of college, I have learned a lot about myself, especially through the link class required by all freshman students. The various activities we have done throughout the class have helped me significantly, especially through the habitude stories. These stories seemed pointless at first, but after I read them I learned some important information. Some of the habitudes helped me with things I was struggling with, such as time management. I enjoyed the Big Rocks First habitude because it allowed me to understand how I can schedule my time better by prioritizing the most important things first.
Anh T Vo Dr. Oxendine Engl 1301-81057 18 December, 2015 Reflection Before my English 1301 class started, I made a commitment for myself that I would get an A in this class.

Usually, if I found a certain class had too much difficult work or I did not like how the instructor taught the subject, I would switch into another class. At the beginning of my junior year, I was put into an advanced placement English class. I soon decided to switch out of that class and into an honors English class because I felt the work load was too much and the teacher was too strict on grading. “I regret not staying in AP English because it would have benefitted me and it would have helped me improve my writing skills,” I said to my mom later in the year. She encouraged me to take classes of higher placement in my senior year so I could still have a chance to push myself to my best
Back in high school, my writing mostly committed of timed exams and practice for International Baccalaureate exams so my grammar and organizing did not matter as much as the content and speed of my work. Therefore, I had to learn new types of writing techniques and become more careful and aware of my work. In some ways, I had to reinvent myself as a writer. The course made me analyze pieces and develop my own argument which is very different from content memorization that I did in high school. I think my growth is very evident in my final paper.

This is currently my first year enrolling in Richland College, but the experience is just the beginning. The earliest memory of reading was all the syllabus that each class had before school started. I chose to be in college because I’m striving for a better future, instead of working at a retail store and less pay for all the work I’ve contributed. Being an expert reader can help me out in the long run because it helps me with comprehension and critical thinking when I encounter a real world problem. Now getting in idea of what we are doing in class, I think you are doing just fine helping me prepare for what is ahead of me and I greatly appreciate that.
