The structure of coursework improved my writing skills. In one experience, my peer editing session explained that my childhood story showed a simple and clear writing style, but it wasn’t concise. This feedback forced me to evaluate my story and see in what ways it could be concise along with other writing tools that I incorporated. I realized from the experience that this was the first time I focused purely on improving my writing skills rather than understanding the course content. The course enabled me to confront my weaknesses in writing that I couldn’t in other academic classes.
I struggled a lot with that lesson because I was so used to my old ways that I did not want to learn that actual right ways. I eventually got over my stubbornness and learned the rules for where to put the apostrophe. The knowledge in this course has helped me write my research paper for other college class, Dual General Psychology. The knowledge I learned from this class I used a lot to help me write my research paper in there. I think without the knowledge from this class I would not have done as well as I did on that paper.
Through the past two semesters, I have learned a great deal about my writing skills. Before this class, the truly only wrote; filling my papers with the opinions I held myself. “Just writing” was my only option because that was all I had been taught. However, ever since I had attended GSW-1110 and GSW-1120, I have learned to adopt the formal writing style. Through the past two semesters, I have obtained many skills that will be useful to further my educational career, but there are skills that I, nevertheless, must improve on.

So for the whole day I was freaking out basically, weird sounds were coming about, students we 're going home sick left and right, it was just a weird week of school. So for the rest of that day my mind went back and fourth, are they real, are they not and that just kept crossing my mind at that moment. It got pretty bad to the point we 're I couldn’t really concentrate about school. So then again 4th block hit, and in my 4th block classes I have some crazy people in their, which was Spanish the first one was just ranting on how he has proof on seeing these clowns, and at this point I just want to get over this moment. So obviously I want to know what’s going on, he’s a weird kid, didn’t really care for him, tall and skinny, didn’t even know his name.
To be honest I tried to avoid the class at first time, even though we have to do writing in other classes. I felt I am not ready for writing class. However, I decided to enroll to this class because it will be very helpful to improve my writing, and the readings will be good references when I start writing my dissertation in the end of this program. It was good choice and I am glad I registered for this class. The readings are very useful and filled with information that help you overcome your fear of writing.
Comma splices were one of the major grammar problems that I had struggled with in the past. A comma splice brings two independent clauses together, creating a run on sentence. An example of how I misused a comma is; “Coming from a small school the teachers had the materials but did not see it important enough to teach they were more worried about other things.” Once I found my mistakes, I went back and added a comma after school, a period after teach and started a new sentence with the word “They”. Having strong sentences in my story was another problem that I struggled with. When writing an essay,
I found the My Story assignment to be a fascinating one. I thought it was really interesting to get a closer look at how my fellow classmates defined themselves and what led them to their definition. The assignment allowed me to uncover another side of the people in the class that I didn’t know too well, but also it allowed me to see another perspective on my friends. The assignment is proof that even though people claim to know one another, they only know the information that they’re given, and that the information is usually only a fragment of the entire story. This idea of seeing an entire person’s story is what made the assignment so enjoyable, and even though I had a hard time coming up with my own narrative, it was still interesting to
