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.
The first day of sophomore year rolled around and it was time to step foot into Mrs. Burrell’s class. Boy, was I surprised when I walked in and there was a new teacher, Mrs. Padilla. This is when the “Road of Trials” began. From the very first day she had stressed about the importance of the AP test. She gave us all of the AP rubrics, a sheet of transition words to use in our writing pieces, and she even showed us the agenda she had planned out for the rest of the year.
This Texas Government course is my first online class and also my first Honors class in college. I am aware that online courses may require students to do discussion boards or group projects or any other assignments that encourage interactions among students. I expected to experience and improve my teamwork skills and critical thinking. Although this class was about Texas Government, I was looking forward to discussing the presidential election that was held during throughout the semester. Last spring semester, I took GOVT 2305 - the Federal Government- and found myself involved in discussions and debates.
Some of the significant changes I have made as I was progressing and growing were to develop a strong thesis to help support my claims as I write my essays, such as facts, observations, illustration, and examples. There are other areas in my writing that I have improved on. I have improved on my grammar, verb constructions, use of verb tenses and organizational skills to make my writing flow better when reading. My overall progress in completing this ten weeks course was wonderful. Every steps and skills I learned in this English class will help me to improve on my writing skills in my other classes and will also help me in my future
I can really say without fear of contradiction that I learnt a lot during the research process and during the essay writing process. I gained several skills that I am sure will be very useful in future. I can prove that the skills I gained in essay writing will be very useful in future both n further studies and in my career as I am now very conversant with essay writing techniques. If for instance a future employer asks me to write an essay on how to improve customer relation in the company, I know the format that will make my work look professional. Gauging my work, that is, the research process, the analysis of the information I got and the essay, I can say that I was above average.
Rhetorical Analysis of “How to Have a Conversation” In today’s world, technology often seems to get in the way of real human connection and the concern around its effects on our conversation skills has even spawned self-improvement classes designed to elevate the practice. In his article, “How to Have a Conversation,” John McDermott, Executive Comment Editor of the Financial Times, matter-of-factly describes his experiences and musings during his attendance to one such class. His writing seems intended for anyone who wishes to connect with others in a more meaningful way. To lend authority to this purpose, he cites multiple renowned conversationalists. Inevitably, however, he concludes that the best way to have a conversation is simply to make the choice to have one.
I have learned through English 102 that a strong academic sentence needs to flow well and include a large vocabulary. In the Rhetorical Essay Draft, I used words focused on the past and my professor said use present tense when expressing general truths, when writing about literate and when quoting, summarizing, or paraphrasing an author’s view. I have learned that writing in the present tense will make the essay have a stronger academic tone. Each tip that my professor has given me helped me excel on each essay throughout English
This will be the easiest way to gather, record and share all the data that I have stored in my head. In order to analyze and interpret my data I will reflect on who had authority before I did, how did they get the authority that they had and how did I get my authority so quickly and, seemly, randomly? Obviously my memory is not perfect also I was not on the tennis team when the student before me gained most of her authority so there will be some unclear parts that I will try and work around. I think that I will benefit for this because it will shed some light on why I suddenly was in a position of power and will clear up some questions that I have had for a long time. Also this will benefit other people because it 's just another example that might bring up more questions or solve some question that other people might have.
My motivation for self-improvement reflected my fascination with the course content. I was excited to learn about new information that taught me new writing tools I applied to my stories. For example, once I learned of passive and active sentences, the subject-verb-object sentence structure, and rules to structure dialogue encouraged me to return and edit past stories. This small example shows that a stronger commitment to this goal will be necessary to spark improvement. My experience in the course will serve as an example of why I’ll need to commit to this goal If I want to pursue legal studies
I quickly scrambled to find out how I could go about doing both and I talked with several people who work for Wayne County to plan out my career path. My junior year also led to me taking physical science that caused me to want to take a forensic chemistry direction with my career. Chemistry opens a lot of doors in forensics and has many fun components that would continue to make the job enjoyable for me. This summer I hope to attend a three-week forensic science program at Yale University to help me affirm my interest in this field and meet others who have the same aspirations as
