I have learned that it is easier to begin writing the paper a week before instead of the night before. In high school it was easy to do it the night before but in college you have so much more going on with other classes that it is less stressful just to get it out of the way. Peer editing was never my thing up until this year, I did not like other reading my paper and I did not really like reading other’s papers.
I think without the knowledge from this class I would not have done as well as I did on that paper. That is why I am grateful for this class because it helps me write papers for others classes and do well. In the end, Dual English Comp has caused me a lot of stress but it has also opened my mind up to writing a successful college paper. I learned new things from writing a thesis to the correct apostrophe positions, to how to cite things correctly. My high school English class never taught me any of the things I have learned in here, so now I can proudly say when I go off to college that I know how to write a college academic essay because of Dual English
I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?
Having a combination of what we learn since day one through all the semester and adding all or some of the topics on future projects was an outstanding way to keep learning not only the previous topics but the new ones we touch during school time. Sharing in class our progression was awesome because it showed us how behind or ahead we were with our work, but the most important the extra help or feedback we got from other students. I personally think it was worth the time we spent in class since I always went home after each day of class knowing that I had learned something knew in my life and that I will be using in my
This is currently my first year enrolling in Richland College, but the experience is just the beginning. The earliest memory of reading was all the syllabus that each class had before school started. I chose to be in college because I’m striving for a better future, instead of working at a retail store and less pay for all the work I’ve contributed. Being an expert reader can help me out in the long run because it helps me with comprehension and critical thinking when I encounter a real world problem. Now getting in idea of what we are doing in class, I think you are doing just fine helping me prepare for what is ahead of me and I greatly appreciate that.
The structure of coursework improved my writing skills. In one experience, my peer editing session explained that my childhood story showed a simple and clear writing style, but it wasn’t concise. This feedback forced me to evaluate my story and see in what ways it could be concise along with other writing tools that I incorporated. I realized from the experience that this was the first time I focused purely on improving my writing skills rather than understanding the course content. The course enabled me to confront my weaknesses in writing that I couldn’t in other academic classes.
I enjoyed and excelled at what I did, and refused to step outside my comfort zone, assuming that unfamiliarity was often a slippery slope to downfall. Every day was the same as the one before – no risks, no rewards. In March of my eighth grade year, I was offered admission to Miss Porter’s School, a private high school thirty minutes from home. I gladly accepted, ready to escape my provincial town of Glastonbury and start fresh in a new school. To me, part of this “starting fresh” involved establishing myself as somebody; after being dubbed “that weird smart
The only thing I did not do during the writing process was use note cards. I decided to take notes the way I always have by printing off my sources and writing down important facts. This process worked great for me, and I had a very easy time finding all of the information in my notes. Secondly, when it was finally time for me to enter the writing phase, I did what Survival suggests and wrote the first draft all the way through in a matter of six hours. This really helped me compose a great first draft because my thoughts were able to flow freely for six hours without any interruptions.
The Advanced Writing class will help me with anything necessary that I need help with and it’ll keep me on the right track to shoot my best score on the ACTs. Unlike any other classes, this class will benefit any person outside in the real world. Although, I haven’t taken the ACTs to receive the score that would’ve helped me improve in the future, or show where I am at, I don’t have to take it to know my strengths or weaknesses in English and Writing. One of the three strengths I have in Writing is focusing on the topic that I find interesting. I ensure to include what is important in my paper, and other details that are necessary for the readers to easily understand of the point of
Through the past two semesters, I have learned a great deal about my writing skills. Before this class, the truly only wrote; filling my papers with the opinions I held myself. “Just writing” was my only option because that was all I had been taught. However, ever since I had attended GSW-1110 and GSW-1120, I have learned to adopt the formal writing style. Through the past two semesters, I have obtained many skills that will be useful to further my educational career, but there are skills that I, nevertheless, must improve on.
