The constant access allowed me to grow and develop cognitively thanks to my exposure to context, culture and my peers. (Dimmitt, 2018) The exposure to school and my incomplete microsystem could only get me so far, however. In order to get to college, I needed to consider my exosystem and how I could be independent without relying on my
Outliers, written by Malcolm Gladwell, is an informational book regarding the intricacies of success and how it comes to fruition in individuals. Outliers has served to teach students the means of being successful and the importance of seizing opportunities as they come. Personally, Outliers has changed my views of success in numerous ways. Before reading said book, I had always assumed people who were naturally talented or had specific privileges were the only ones who could get far. However, Gladwell’s writing has informed me that anyone, if they are prepared to work hard, can reach their goals.
I believe this literacy I gained is functional due to the education system I grew up in. Having a strong academic literacy has shaped me as a student and a person. The way I learned has strayed from the typical student yet, specific to my individual needs taking a slow approach to critical thinking has proven successful. I have gained writing, revision, and study habits that tailor to my specific English based

It strikes an interest in me because I am an Elementary Ed major and I will deal with certain situations that I have read about and I hope I make the right decision when my time comes.

The discussions that we had in class were also another very helpful tool that we should have had more of during the unit. I definitely had some preferences on the books that we read this semester.
After reading the syllabus for “English 1110 First Year Composition” instructed by Steve Backus, it is clear that he values development and self-guided learning above all else. We can see that these are things that he values most because they are the most stressed points in the syllabus. They are very important things to be valued: development because that is the point of the class, to develop as a writer and learn how to become a better writer; and self-guided learning because it is a good life skill that can better prepare us for future classes as well as the real world. Development as writers is the whole point of the class. So it only makes sense that it is one of the most stressed points in the syllabus.
