When I was searching for books/articles that supported my concept, it was really hard to find ones that clearly defined what the Critical Race Theory is. A lot of sources just talked about it, assuming that the reader already knew what it was. The only thing I did not like about this source is that the definition of what Critical Race Theory was not included until the 8th page, so for the first few pages I was left confused. I will use this source to help me explain how society is effected by CRT. Diaz, Junot.
From the start of the semester, I have found myself not meeting standards because of my difficulty being able to explain myself correctly. In one of the first formatives we were assessed on, The JFK Inaugural Speech, my use of quotations were effective, but the sentences that followed were opposite of that. While analyzing the comments made by you stating that the explanation needs to be more “specific” and “have a greater focus on analysis,” I made it my task to improve on what was keeping me from earning a better grade. When looking at my Destination Essay, the focus seems like I’m “playing with multiple ideas,” but I don’t necessarily have one perfect idea. By missing out on fixing these mistakes and seeking help from you, I continued to demonstrate this lack of explanation in multiple other essays and formatives.
Starting my paper became a challenge. I knew what I wanted to be the main points of my paper but I didn’t know how to exactly use ethos, pathos, and logos when it was a film I was analyzing instead of a text. Proofreading is still one of the things that I struggle most with in any paper. While writing my rough draft, I tend to get ahead of myself and just go on to tangents. When I proofread my own work I may not catch on to all the little grammar errors.
The next weakness I displayed in my writing was my grammar punctuation errors. This was common throughout my whole paper and it could have been prevented by simply going back and proofreading my work. The most common grammar mistakes in my writing were colon, comma, and quotation mark errors. Not including a common theme in my thesis statements was another weakness I showed through my writing. Making this mistake caused my thesis statements to become proficient and less sophisticated.
It took until college for me to understand that the paper didn’t need somewhat irrelevant information for strength, but that it just needed more relevant information to get the full idea across. The only “taboo” things that I personally had to change was my grammar and word choice because I tend to say something while talking and write it down and it makes no sense when I re-read the paper. I also don’t think that I have ever learned how to create an outline properly for a
When looking at my resume, you will think that I am not qualified enough for this job. In some aspects that is true, my database management and spreadsheet software skills are out of practice and are a current weak point for me. However, I am determined and eager to fix these weak points. What I do excel in is having sound judgment and strong discretion
Describe the most significant challenge you have faced and the steps you have taken to overcome this challenge. How has this challenge affected your academic achievement? Just like most new international students, the hardest challenge I faced in USA was coping in a completely different society. Moving to the United States is not all about changing lifestyle, but also facing cultural differences. It was difficult to adapt to the new education system and making friends because of the language barriers.
We were given papers where we had to mark the items in order of its importance. I did something alike before in my class and from that understanding, I tried to do this one. We did both individual and group separately and from the result, I understood that there were various people in the group who could lead the whole group to a better result but they were not willing to speak upfront. Even if they did not agree with the decision, they did not have the courage to talk to others and just followed what others said. I had an average result, which wasn’t very good.
To me, that’s kind of hard because I’m not a big fan of making essays. I feel like this quote is the most important one to me because it doesn’t defend me. When assigned an essay many teachers will tell you to avoid "I", "you", and "we". This can be a little difficult for me when writing an essay because I try to express my opinion. If I'm not able to state my reasoning, it's much harder because they aren’t many words to help my
In the end of my presentation I wanted to discuss briefly the impact of these events and decisions on my life and how they have changed me as a person. The biggest difficulty I had it was not the presentation itself, but its subject. I spent too much time on rethinking my ideas. I found it very hard to come up with an idea of something interesting, something that will keep my listeners attention, but at the same time will not be too personal or emotional. My very first impression was that it seemed to be impossible to give an informative speech about any personal experience.
Finally I chose to put Cradle and All by James Patterson as my hardest book because frankly I did not understand it. I am trying to read more difficult novels, but I think I chose one a little too far outside my comfort zone. The plot is understandable but the language the author uses rather difficult for me to read. To sum it up, these books are all good choices and I would recommend them, but sometimes I just have to deal with what I can
I wait for that to happen to me, but I find myself stuck. I didn’t how to start writing because I kept over thinking that whatever I had thought already was wrong.Thesis:For me, the best author that provided me with the most valuable information was Anne Lamott’s “Getting Started” because she gave me ways of how I can begin to write when I have zero ideas as to what to write, how and where to write it. This chapter served as a guideline for whenever I find myself struggling with writing. I even looked back at it with this assignment because I was feeling insecure as to what I was writing. 1st Body: Whenever I get an essay assignment I begin to stress.
The true definition of a “reading disorder” was not defined properly. This make it harder for readers to understand Ferreday due to the lack of understanding of what a “reading disorder” is in context of her argument. She supports her statements by using different sources as supporting evidence. The random transition between the different sources to support her argument aids in creating confusion for readers as well as lack of drive to read this literary work to completion. The structure of the article determines the easiness of comprehension of the main
Christopher has little things that bother him and that he doesn 't understand or like, he even gets offended by things that wouldn 't offend the average person. For example , “ I got Siobhan to draw lots of these faces and then write down next to them exactly what they meant. I kept the piece of paper in my pocket and took it out when I didn 't understand what someone was saying. But it was very difficult to decide which of the diagrams was most like the face they were making because people 's faces move very quickly. When I told Siobhan that I was doing this, she got out a pencil and another piece of paper and said it
Many bestselling authors would not know what the ending of their novel was at first. Because how teachers assign essays today, we feel the need to come up with a subject to write about or we’ll feel unorganized and lost. Another myth is that good writers get it right the first time. I instantly knew this was not to be. If that was true then why are there so many editors in the writing
