The key parts of an essay are the opening and the closing. I learned to plan my paragraphs by writing out my outline of how I wanted to tell my story and take my reader on the same journey that I read about in my book. This class has helped prepare me for my career and give me the ability to organize me thoughts and then put them on paper. No matter what career path I choose to take, I will always need to skills in writing to communicate effectively with my job. English 101 is a class that prepares you for the most basic job functions that require reading and writing.
While I do know some of the rules, due to my previous English teachers in school, there is still much that I do not know. But, through the course of this past semester I have learned a great deal about different and new rules. This class has taught me a great deal about writing and how to correctly write an essay. Writing is a system of many rules and is a way for people to express their creativity. This class has given me much room to express myself creatively and gain more knowledge.

Second, is Creative Writing this class is not as structured as others it is a very mellow class. Similar to English Comp 200 we write how we feel about certain
What Came First, Reading or Writing? Thinking back upon my education in my early childhood years, school has always been the foundation to the learning process of my reading and writing experience. From learning the letters of the alphabet to actually being able to form sentences and placing my thoughts into words, I have learned the correct usage of reading and writing. But I didn’t understand the different concept of what it means to read and write until my senior year of high school. My AP English teacher taught me what it means to read and analyze work to not just overlook what the author has written.
My writing took a turn for the best, I had my fellow students help me improve, instead of them just outright editing my essays for me. This in turn helped me improve and made me the writer I am today. One of my first ever essays in the 11th grade english class was a rhetorical analysis of the novel In Cold Blood. I notice now that I tend to repeat certain words, repeating “cold-blooded killer” every other sentence. This creates sentences which sound awkward.
I cannot quite recall the exact time of when I first began to read, but I think it was about first grade. The first time that I enjoyed reading was when I was in third grade. The main types of reading that I do are intensive and extensive readings. Intensive reading are when I have to read a chapter or a book for a class and I need to remember what that section or book is about, usually for an exam. The other type of reading is reading books or other works for pleasure.
The English 1300 class has helped me to improve and develop my writing skills in several ways. Primarily this class has helped to reduce the stresses that I have always felt when a report or essay was asked for. Contributing and being involved in this class will have substantial influence in future English classes and all classes no matter what the subject. I have discovered that my previous classes in High School served only as minimal effort and upon entering college the rules have been amplified and are crucial to a timely completion of your classes and ultimately college. Feedback was critical and valued.
Literacy; the ability to read and write. Something that the world does daily, but the skills we acquire in order to do this develop over the course of our education. The awareness of sounds in language, variations in print and layout, relationships between words and sounds, vocabulary and spelling are all basic literacy skills that we have acquired in order to read and write. My interest in this topic stemmed from my English lessons, when discussing the novels we were currently studying, I began to question why we read the works we do how they help us progress as literary analysts. *add more here* This topic is essential as literacy is integral to our daily lives and as a student, I find it important to question why the works that we study
I have used a few resources when I made the rhetorical analysis. I have used information from the book, called A Field Guide for Science Writers: The Official Guide of the National Association of Science Writers. Also, from a very well-known article by Richard Preston "Crisis in the Hot Zone." In addition, I have included information from Chapter 5 "Rhetorical Analysis" by Andrea Lunsford and John Ruszkiewicz. I liked how Jason Fagone uses mystery throughout the chapter, and leaves us with questions.
