Writing is involved in the mechanics everything people do including school studies, employment applications, and recording thoughts. However, even though writing is so important and commonly used, unlike speaking or picking up the lyrics to one’s favorite song, writing needs to be learned in order to be done properly. While the New Dorp school system is a far to common example of a underfunded school that lacked in the writing department even after its reforms despite making real progress, I was fortunate enough to learn from a high school that provided me with the highest standard of writing teaching. By having weekly assignments, personalized meetings, and difficult readings, my high school graduates leave with the skillset needed to write well in all aspects of their
A school named New Dorp High School had many kids that were low-performing students. They didn’t know how to write very well so, they had all of the teachers make writing a priority in their classes, even in physical education you had to write. The administrators really believed that this method would work and help the students tremendously. Luckily for them, it did, “the school’s success suggests that perhaps certain instructional fundamentals that schools have devalued or forgotten need to be rediscovered, updated, and reintroduced. And if that can be done correctly, traditional instruction delivered by the teachers already in classrooms may turn out to be the most powerful lever we have for improving school performance after all” (Tyre).
Not only by exposing them to the language they will speak, read and write the English language correctly, students must learn and understand the meaning of words. Vocabulary words help any English language learner communicate effectively with any other person. According to Wilkins (1972), “Vocabulary is central to English language teaching because, without sufficient vocabulary, students cannot understand others or express their own ideas.” On the other hand, many teachers recognize the importance of teaching vocabulary and they must emphasize it daily in their lessons. Among many skills, vocabulary in context is one of the most commonly used. To aid vocabulary in context, the use of a Card-file among other strategies may enrich the student’s experience and understanding of what they speak, read, and
“Writing is a ticket to a professional opportunity”1(Linville). One cannot have any aspirations of a professional career if they do not at least possess the foundational basics of writing. Love it or hate it, writing is more important to everyday life than most might realize and I have come to learn that the necessity of writing skills continue to grow progressively throughout life. Writing skills have represented the most importance for me from kindergarten to college and eventually in work. I have come to learn that school should be used for making mistakes, learning from those mistakes, and mastering skills in order to be best prepared for the professional workforce.

This challenge has opened new doors in the basic operation of the school system. Yet, the sole purpose of all postsecondary institution is to provide the proper tools their students’ needs to excel in their career and in life. The challenge to provide this type of service with limited funds and resources poses a problem for most institutions. As a result, tuition seem to be on the rise to meet the needs of this education
Concerning the importance of speaking skill, Gammidge (2004, p.7) claims that "Speaking is a highly challenging yet essential skill for most learners to acquire." In addition, Renandya and Richards (2002) state that “a large percentage of the world's language learners study English in order to develop proficiency in speaking”(p.201). Many English foreign language students consider the mastery of speaking skill a priority. Besides, they evaluate their success according to their spoken language proficiency. (Richards, 2008, p.19) For many teachers, teaching speaking is so important.
Because I am an international student, English is my second language, so even English itself is quite challenging for me. Particularly, it is hard to write in English effectively with different types of business formats. I have had a few experiences using English as a business professional like creating Cover Letters and resumes to apply for internships. Though these experiences, I realized that phrases and words are different between academic style and business professional style; I struggle to use the correct tone and format. Thus, one of my goals in this course is writing and communicating in a variety of contexts and formats as business expert.
Engineering majors are usually harder than other majors and you learn so many new things in the subject like the broken down components of a bridge or how to electrically power something through a circuit or using raw materials and the environment to produce energy. With my engineering classes come the required core classes. Sometimes, keeping up with homework can stress you out very much but that is a part of being in college. I take an English writing, math and Inupiaq class with my engineering lecture and lab
