Reading and Writing will help me further my college education, and it will help me get to my goal. After reading Stephen King's essay "Reading to Write" (72) it opened my eyes for writing. Although being a professional novelist isn't a goal I want to pursue in my life, writing is something I will need to learn how to do with good form. When it comes to the writing department, it's not one of my best skills. King says, "Good writing, teaches the learning writer about style, graceful narration, plot development, the creation of believable characters, and truth-telling" (73).
In triad K, I have been able to reflect on my literacy journey, create amazing study habits, and learn more about rhetoric. In addition, I have learned how I can use rhetoric in everyday life. Although I know I still have not achieved the complex writing, I strive to get to, I still make use of what I already know and just try to build on it. Writing essays such as these and the others we have done in the class have really helped transform me into a better writer. We talked about literacy sponsors and had to write a literacy narrative, where I reflected my growth in writing, and created goals on how I would like to improve.
I just kept on going and trying to reach my ultimate goal of being a better writer. I also put a lot of commitment in learning the writing process taking the time to research and look for ways to help me improve, whether it was surfing the web or asking someone for help and now I look forward to taking what I have learned and use it to the best of my
As a child where the hospital was a second home to me, I promised myself that I would push hard to become a doctor no matter the circumstances. It seemed like such a simple mission in my naïve mind. I was not aware of how perplexed this process would be. This is why I strive to attend a university where I will continue to be challenged academically and become more independent in my medical studies. Along with being motivated to become the best version of myself.
Reflection Essay I was excited when I learnt that part of my course work this semester is English 1301, a writing class. I am aware that there are specific writing requirements for academic writing for college level work. I was concerned about my ability as a foreigner to fulfill the academic writing standards for college level assignments. This class promises to teach me how to meet the writing standards for this level of study. The course outline indicates that at the end of the course, I will acquire critical reading, rhetoric analysis and writing skills.
Although, it was hard but I believe that I can write better if I compared my old essay to news. The happiness of passing the IELTS exam, I have never forgotten this memory. I want to mention that rhetorical situation in my writing experience. First of all, exigence means that a need, a gap something like that so exigence is a reason why we write and what it triggers in our writing. The exigence includes my education life.
In my previous English 101 class that I took last semester I had to write a rhetorical analysis on a topic I am very passionate about. My paper was titled “Why Everyone Should Be Feminist.” The assignment was that we had to read an article, and analyze the components the author used. After analyzing the work, we had to write our own rhetorical analysis using what we learned from the article. The purpose was to get us used to picking out writing tools, so we could learn how to put them in our own work. This assignment taught me a lot about rhetorical techniques that can be found in a lot of authors works.
My high school courses consist of advanced placement courses and courses that are geared towards my interests. While I believe in achieving the most and being challenged, I also want to learn things that genuinely interest me. Learning to me comes easier if I am intrigued by the information. Ever since eighth grade, I have been interested in the medical field. I have always wanted to help people.
A semester have passed in a blink of our eyes and we are heading toward the end. Therefore, it is time to reflect upon my writing skills. Earlier in the semester, I aimed for an A in this class and I also wish to become a more efficient writer. In order to do so, I planned to use a lot of the available resources such as the writing lab, Learning Curve, and the Bedford handbook. I also planned to read a lot and spending more time in composing my essays by going through multiple drafts.
