However, I did learn through my years of schooling that being able to read is key to success in any field of employment. I had a personal drive to be able to understand what I am reading, no matter what it may be such as an article in a magazine, a memo from supervisors or policy and procedures of a company. In my spare time, I would read as much as I could to learn new words. Since I come across words every day that are spoken to me that is not understood, I would research the words to better understand what was being discussed. Still to this day, it has become a habit of mine to read any random piece of writing to ensure my understanding continues to grow.
“For weeks I read, speed read, books by modern educational theorists, only to find infrequent and slight mention of students like me.

Another one of my biggest weaknesses as a writer is my usage of Punctuation and Capitalization; therefore, there were a couple of times where I did not capitalize the names of particular people, or the names of particular places. Although paragraph unity and punctuation are two of my foremost weaknesses, my biggest weakness out of them all is my comma usage. There were multiple occasions in my paper where I placed a comma and it was not necessary; on the other hand, there were also multiple instances in my paper where my usage of commas was completely absent. Although I have many strengths and many weaknesses as a writer there are always different devices I can use to improve both my strengths and my weaknesses.

Since then as an adult, I have made a point to increase my reading and writing abilities. I do not exactly remember when during my childhood that reading started to become a struggle for me. However, I do remember as early as third grade having to leave my classroom to go to another building for tutoring in reading. As I progressed through the years, the school eventually separated the students into full classrooms of students depending on their level of reading. During these times, I was unfortunately in the lowest level.
2.2.1 Observation After assessing pupils’ written work, I noticed that the most common error in their writing occurred when they were writing simple sentences. Pupils tend to miss out or jumble up words in simple sentences. Sentence structure is one of the most disturbing mistakes that my pupils made as it could distort the meaning that they wished to convey. Different types of worksheet, such as sentence making and sentence rearrangement, have been provided yet the error remains the same.
Looking Back Looking back through my papers that I have written for Dual Comp. English III, I realized that I struggled greatly with the use of transition words. I had always used the same few in my papers for other classes and did not understand their importance. I learned that transition words can make a paper really good if used correctly, or really bad if they are non-existent. While writing for Dual Comp.

The reasons why writing is hard for me is because, a lot of times when I write I get distracted by, other people, thinking about something else on my mind, instead of what I am writing, finishing up my chores, etc. Also, when I write my grammar is incorrect, for example, pronoun errors. In other words, “Everybody don’t care if they hate it or not.” That was wrong, but the correct way to write it is, “Everybody don’t care if he or she hates it or not.”

The Many Powers Of Rhetoric In this section of “The UNF Guide To Writing” different authors discuss the robust powers of rhetorical writing. Nathan Thornburgh discussed “overheated rhetoric” in his writing Violent Rhetoric and Arizona Politics (52). He discussed the shooting that took place in Arizona over a political issue of immigration in which Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was killed. Thornburgh said that the over-exaggeration n that was places on the “issues” that were going on in Arizona is the reason people got angry enough and why it drove Jared Loughner, the shooter, to act out in a violent way (53).
Rhetorical Analysis I alter use in the body paragraphs in order to show how Andy ( a lower class character) is an example of “heredity” since he takes over his late father’s position at the coal mine. In other words, the way I use quotes in my Rhetorical Analysis demonstrate that I have learned to take in consideration all parts of the quotes. Even though I have improved in considering all parts of the quote when using them as supporting evidence, I actually got to notice that I make arguments that are more than what I can possibly support with evidence from the text. This issue was pointed out to me in the comments left in turnitin.com by Dr. Danner. This problem in my writing was pointed out in my Rhetorical Analysis when I wrote, “under
