If I could change the assignment I would make the requirements clearer in the assignment document in the checklist. Additionally, standardized scaling needs to be used, as some TA’s grade differently than other TA’s. The assignments have many unwritten expectations and requirements not only for content but also in formatting. These issues need to be addressed to not only minimize confusion amongst the students, but also to decrease the amount of time TA’s repeat themselves about these unwritten requirements. My level of interest in the experiments that were conducted in the lab did not change over the semester.
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. One area that I improved on is my word choice. If I was categorized as a writer, I would have been categorized as a thesaurus writer. It seems like I would pick a word from Thesaurus.com and jammed it into my sentence
I remember Brent was stung by an asp in our backyard and Brad and I immediately went and bought to chickens to keep in the backyard so that they would eat all the asps and so that Brent would never be stung again. They grew up and apart but later crossed paths in junior or high school but I have not seen Brent in many years. We all carry special moments in time that we reflect on and one of my favorite was about Brent, with the point being that he clearly touched so many lives that he never even knew about.
Afterwards, an animal had killed the rest of the chickens from the neck so Julie cooked the chickens for food to hold them by to the springtime when they could finally grow some crops to eat. Julie had her baby on her own and she became sick so Hank looked after their baby girl who had died. They had her funeral in their backyard. The real lawyer representing the heirs of the house came by and served them papers saying how they were having to be sued if they couldn 't pay rent for the house, even though they never owed rent to Mr. Pendergast and also said that they had the right to sue every belonging of the couple to trade in for money. So in addition, Julie and Hank began to pack only what they could carry on their backs while Julie had found a $20 coin that Mr. Pendergast must have forgotten about.
Also, Gary knows “from my church schooling that the devil is the father of lies” which Implies Gary’s mother enrolled him into Sunday school. When Dan died, Gary’s father “carried him in from the west field, crying and calling the name of Jesus.” Finally, when Gary reunites with his father after his encounter in the forest, he notices the ribbon that his mother had “woven through the handle back when Dan was still alive. DEDICATED TO JESUS, that ribbon said.” Gary’s religious upbringing and sudden departure from Church life was traumatic and caused him to experience irrational anxiety. Gary remarks that he “coaxed my mother back to church later on that summer.” which means this was a place in time that marked a religious change in Gary’s
Hank didn’t want to do with being in the war or fighting. But, one day some Lobster Backs broke into his house to slaughter his livestock and threaten his family. So, Hank wanted to join the war because of that incident. Then, he ended up being a member of George Washington’s Army. While, the first similarity found between My Brother Sam is Dead and Two Kinds of Patriots is time and
But later on, his strength increases with anger and cause more problems. Curley is their boss’s son and he has a beautiful young wife that causes trouble. One day Lennie was in the barn crying because he had killed his pup and knows that because he killed the pup he cannot tend the rabbits in their land that they were going to buy. He was sad and angry but at that moment Curley’s wife walks in and try to talk
Looking back over the time and hard work that I have put into this course I realize that it was very helpful. Throughout the course, English 1002, I learned many new techniques that would help me achieve the goal of correctly writing a college level research paper. The most difficult task that I encountered during the course was writing the works cited page of the essay. It took a little time but eventually I began to understand the process. There were a few different research topics that we had to write about during the course but the most interesting to me was the community research paper.
Old Man Warner, the oldest man in the town, says in the story, “Pack of crazy fools,” he said. ‘Listening to the young folks, nothings good enough for them. Next thing you know, they’ll be wanting to go back to living in caves, nobody work anymore, live that way for a while. Used to be a saying about ‘Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.’ First thing you know, we’d all eating stewed chicken weed and acorns. There’s always been a lottery.” Was it possible this was a tradition used to sacrifice someone, to ensure a great harvest?
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. Additionally, when polishing my papers I would turn to the tutor before making the peer review suggested changes, but in retrospect, I now realize that I should make the suggested amendments first and then turn it into a tutor for
