I have many goals for myself in language arts that I hope to complete by the end of the year. In my life, my mom loved to read. When she was little so she gave me book recommendations that she liked which helped me learn to love to read. Reading and writing also come with accomplishments and struggles along the way but in time you improve and become better. I have learned my strengths and weaknesses
Personal Literacy Narrative Reading and writing is a tool everybody needs in their lifetime the basic reading and writing skills are used on a daily base no matter what field you plan to study. Reading and writing are taught at a young age. I personally was taught by preschool I noticed on how I grew with my writing and how I became a better reader and writer throughout my life I personal love reading and writing it’s a way for everyone to express themselves through their choice of words. Everybody learns how to read and write differently some students tend to be stronger than others, personally speaking I feel I tend to be higher in reading then writing.
I believe many students have trouble summarizing a piece of writing because it seems intimidating to summarize a full page into five to seven sentences. I had a lot of trouble summarizing a piece of writing until I learned a few simple steps from my English 095 teacher. It would be amazing to help students learn how to write good summaries and watch their writing improve throughout the year. My favorite thing we did in class is when we were writing narrative essays. I loved learning how to write a narrative and procedural essay.
I was not confident in my writing before, but now I am. Professor Karl taught me ways to incorporate new techniques into my writing, as well as following the proper rules required by the University. Furthermore, the textbook was a life saver, it reminded me of small details that I learned back in high school that are quite important when writing a paper. Subsequently, I will continue to practice my writing and incorporate everything that I learned throughout this course in the future. Learning never stops and I’m always open to learning new techniques that will help me become a better writer.
One particular teacher in high school helped me improve my writing and reading skills. The advice she told me was to break up the prompt by extracting the most important information. She told me to focus writing about the main idea of the prompt, and to stay on topic. As for reading, my teacher advised me to annotate and stop at some times to see if I’m
Throughout my childhood, the idea of having a college education was importantly emphasized. As a result, it was my responsibility to be the first generational child to excel in my studies and achieve a life of good fortune and accomplishments. In the beginning, I found the stress of having further education to be a great weak point, but as I grew older, I began to realize the many rewards I have gained by having the skill to be literate. Learning to read and write became the basis of my development.
For as long as I can remember, I have loved reading. Fiction, non-fiction, biographies, it does not matter to me. I remember my mom trying to teach me how to read when I was only three years old. I started off reading small Dr. Seuss books, and then with age it was on to interesting newspaper articles and entertaining novels. One of my all-time favorite books when I was a child was Junie B. Jones.
Throughout my academic career, I have read many books of all genres to get a feel of the literary world and to enhance my reading skills. Ever since I was a young girl, I recall always loving to read any book that I came across and spending my free time doing so. As I got older, my interest slightly decreased but I still enjoy reading fine pieces of literature. I have always preferred to read over write because there’s so much more to learn from other people’s experiences and getting to relate to it as I get deeper into a book. The main challenges I have faced in my literacy journey is being able to express my full thoughts when I write.
When writing my paper I have learned to improve by reading what I have created out loud and making sure it make since, I also have peer reviews and personal review to go back and make sure that my grammar and punctuation is where it should be. Next, when I am conducting research I create a create charts and compare the information I have gathered. Then when it comes to organizing information I take little to know time because I am nine times out of ten very organized before even starting the assignment. In addition, when
Self Assessment: Jacob Thomas As a writer, I have grown in many ways, First I took English Comp 150 last semester. This class taught me a lot about my life due to a book we read The Last Lecture. However, I did not like to read so I showed much resentment towards it. As the deadline approached I finally opened the book that would make me love to read again. In school there is many classes where I can express creativity just like Dr Seuss did in his imaginative books.
Some nights I would beg for her to read them for me. I remember my first book I tried reading was from Dr. Seuss. I thought it would be a good idea to write about one of my favorite others from my childhood. I learned about his family and his life, a lot of what I never even knew. I hope you enjoy learning about his life as much as I did.
It was until the 6th grade when I really enjoyed reading the Junie B Jones books. The Junie B Jones books were my favorite. I still remember every week in my reading class our teacher would take us to the library to check out a book. I would always go for the smallest book, but books with great illustrations in the cover because those were my favorite. There was one book in particular that I loved to check out, and was another one of my favorites the book was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst.
After having her ultimately favored novel published, Fat Kid Rules the World, Going had started to take short story classes in New York City and used the environment around her to produce her third novel, Saint Iggy.
