The one day I spent five hours editing my paper, yet focused on somethings too much that I missed others. The time and effort that I put in my paper revealed to me how much I wanted to perfect my writing. Another thing I found out about myself when writing was that I struggled many times to find a synonym for terms that were too simple. I spent quite a bit of time searching online for synonyms that had the correct meaning and yet sounded scholarly in my paper.
In my argument essay, I tried to voice a strong opinion, but fell short. Although our process analysis essays and cover letters haven’t been graded yet, I believe that I portrayed a more confident tone and style in those than I did in my argument essay. While writing those particular essays, I focused more on meeting the requirements sufficiently and voicing my opinion effectively. I believe that gaining this kind of insight on essay-writing is a reflection of improvement in my writing skills and overall
Prior to AP Language I really enjoyed writing, but during that class my love and ease of writing went away and I often found it to be dull and like a chore. However, after being in VU Composition I feel that my ease of writing has returned and I am able to focus more on improving the details and content of my essays. Even though meeting word requirements can often be tedious, be my last essay, I found it to be an easier task to
It will be quite difficult for me to recall wonderful moments happening several days ago,let alone even earlier time. I need to put them down somewhere before they are lost. Thus,things get improved as I talk about them in my diaries. What excites me most is that writing indeed does wonders for collecting my inspirations. Usually I feel fine thoughts spinning about in my brain.
Focus 2 Assignment – Reflection Upon completing the Focus 2 career assessment program, I am quite impressed at the quality of information it presents. It allowed me to not only look at careers that would fit my personality, but also those that take into consideration the fields I am already interested in. Also, as with any form of self-assessment, there were strengths and weaknesses that I did not expect based on how I feel I live my life currently. Beginning chronologically, the program had me complete two subjective, current measures of my professional career. Specifically, the Career Planning Readiness results were a bit embarrassing, given I have not done much to investigate the career I foresee as much as I should.
Words in blue is artifact that I pull directly form my drafts or practice. As a senior, 39C might come a little bit later for me. Because normally students sill finish their lower writing class before they become junior. The reason why I entered 39 system this later is because I took five times Academic English series before I become a junior. So, my journey of becoming a writer is long and difficult.
I felt that it helped me enrich my writing as well. Moreover, seeing different kinds of writing was delightful and fascinating because each person wrote differently, and I gain a lot from only editing. Furthermore, it seemed that I could edit others' works better than mine. I noticed that when I edited my work, I sometimes did not repair some of my errors, or did not erase ideas that should be erased since I was attached to my work. However, after noticing it, I started to edit my work again after approximately a week since I noticed that after a while, I was more capable to edit my work
As I we wrap up my spring student teaching placement and inch closer to getting my own classroom, I know feel like I have a better idea of what kind of educator I will be. My spring placement has certainly thrown me some curveballs however, the experience incredibly valuable. I have learned so much about the profession and so much about me. When it came to writing this reflection, one thing that popped into my mind was to look at my Pedagogical Creed that I wrote over the summer in our Methods class. I wrote my creed back in July when I did not have classroom teaching experience.
Discuss – Overall, this speech was challenging from start to finish. Developing a concise and compelling speech was not an easy task. I recorded it so many times by the time I was finished with the speech I felt extremely tired. In the end of this assignment, I felt confident about the subject content and how I delivered my message. Area of improvement – An area of improvement is to be able to record a speech like this in a smaller time-period.
In other words, fifty people could sign up for the class, but if only five people end up fitting it in their schedule, it’d still be considered a class for that year. I signed up for it my senior year, along with Organic Chemistry, and I only ended up in one of the classes. I went in to see my counselor over the summer to see if there was any way I could enroll in both. Turns out, both classes ran
I started to dig deeper before I would call the essay ready to turn in for the final draft. In the first paper, I really did not look for any errors, but I had over 35 errors in that paper. After the first essay I started to look a little before turning in my essay, but in essay two I still had over 30 errors. Making sure I notice these errors without needing the help of others is a great technique to learn for myself. I started asking for help from my professor Kitty Burroughs and she explained where I went wrong.
Before this class, I perceived myself as a poor writer. When someone has never been taught the proper way to write a paper, you struggle through college SOC 300 (Dr. Stephen Adair) and hoped to get more out of SOC 478 (Dr. Fumilayo Showers) as you attend classes. I never thought about the process that it took to write any paper before these classes. However, these two professors have been very inspirational toward my writing. They have taught me that structuring your paper is the key element to good writing.
