I formed this group because Alyssa and I were both struggling and I know Porter is great at math so I reached out to him to help us and study together. The group has been helpful because a lot of my questions can be answered by my friends. The dynamic is great because none of us are afraid to sound dumb with questions, so we are all very open and open to helping. We haven’t strictly followed the guidelines in the hand out being that we feel that the way the study group naturally works is great for us and our own learning styles. Overall, I’m happy to have my study group to help me with a class that is harder than any class I have ever
They will also help me improve on my weaknesses and become better on my strengths.

Likewise, creating a cover letter taught me many useful strategies that I will definitely put to use when it comes time for me to submit an official cover letter to a company. One of the biggest things that I have learned from taking this course is that good content is more important than sophistication. Both are very important in essay writing, but it is more important to have clear content and material so that the audience can understand your position. Last year, I always seemed to lose points on essays for not having sophisticated enough prose, so I came into this class under the impression that the most important things in a
I was most engaged in this course when I was doing the research for this paper. Filtering through all the research and figuring out what is valuable information was the most exciting part for me. Additionally, finding information and connecting it to a suspect is the most satisfying part of my job. Writing the actual research paper has been the second most engaging thing during this course. It is difficult for me because I know I am not a great writer, but there are improvements in my writing since starting college.
Bridger Haffey Narrative for US101 Throughout the course of this class I have come to realize that involvement and participation is essential to my success in this course. Not only is participation a large amount of my grade, but it is also a means to understanding the material that we discuss in class. Personally, I learn best when I ask questions and get involved in finding connections between themes and ideas. This is not only true for discussion, but also for classes like calculus where it is very easy to fall behind unless I am fully engaged. I think it is very important to go about discussion with an open mindset, always looking for different arguments, and always thinking about how the topic applies to me at that moment in time.
I learned much more about APA format than I thought I would such as in-text citations. I did not know in-text citations were so important until I took this class. It was great to understand the different types of plagiarism and different techniques to avoid plagiarizing. My weakest writing assets would have to be coming up with a great introduction and building my body so it runs smoothly. I had and am having trouble with
In my undergraduate studies, no course has left a positive impact on me more than expressive writing. Most courses I have taken dictated that good writing reflects the application and knowledge of course content and themes. While I improved as a student following this criteria, my capabilities as a writer needed improvement. This course helped me to overcome that writing obstacle and developed my self-knowledge that will help me in my pursuit of legal studies. The structure of coursework improved my writing skills.
Every time I type or write, I tend to miss out most of the punctuation in my paper. But however, I would love to learn from my weaknesses and turn them into my strengths. In conclusion, taking Advanced Writing class will help me improve the areas of my strengths and weaknesses that I need to focus on. I would like to receive a score above the twenties on the ACT, which is the national average. By being above the average, more of the colleges are most likely to accept me as their
I would try and look for the most effective way to solve problems it helped me to avoid the trap of getting the right answer being the goal. This is something that has definitely got stronger the more math I master. I think that in terms of the teaching I have received the best matches I have had are with teachers who emphasized my strengths. So teacher who cared a lot about the process of
Today I still do a lot of reading but not as much as before do to working and schoolwork load. I realize how important reading and writing is as I get older and become more educated about the issues in education. My goal as a social studies teacher is to help students raise the literacy level but yet have a great time learning new things. I want every student I teach to obtain a good quality education. My students obtaining a good I have to be a good quality teacher who is in the interest of their
I am proud of this assignment because it took a lot of time and I actually grew to love the assignment. It took time, to find the right format, research my questions on what the font or order of the content would be. It was interesting and fun to write a different type of writing style. I improved on Information Skills by that I learned what kind of sources professors/teachers love and what sources they dislike. I also learned that there is no harm in asking the teacher what kind of sources they suggest.
