English Composition 101 has been a fun class that helped me build my confidence as a writer. It was my first college class, and I am glad that I decided to take the course. It was a great experience, and the class will help me immensely in my future writing. When I started the class I had zero experience writing papers. My school had never taught me how to write papers and had never required me to write one, so I was very nervous when I started the class.
With a topic I truly care about I wish I would have done a little more with my paper than I did. Grammatically, I still need a lot of improvement. I write like I would text sometimes, and that is a bad habit that needs to be broken. But just in one semester I can see my improvements though my
In Barrio Boy, Ernesto is determined to learn English by his teacher beauty. The first text is a true story called Barrio Boy, Ernesto is learning the English language with Miss. Ryan his first grade teacher, but slowly he starts to feel comfortable with her. As in the text he states, “It was as if in that closet we were both discovering together the secrets of the English language and grieving together over the tragedies of Bo-Peep.” (Galarza 14). Ernesto started to fall in love with Miss.
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.
While self-accessing my overall performance in English 111, I would say I have done fairly well. I learned a lot about English and mostly about myself. I learned what I needed to work on and improve. Reflecting on my overall performance, I will start by explaining my participation in class, my performance in two areas, how I transitioned into the role of a college student during the semester, what process I used to be successful in English 111, and my overall skill development. This past semester has been a real challenge for me, as well as a huge eye opener.
Everyone has had at least one enlightening class that they’ll never forget. A class that, unlike so many others, truly teaches you about life, or in my case, mortality. Mr. Vindetti was my English teacher in junior high: a worldly and highly perceptive individual who expected the absolute best from his students. Junior high school is a blur, so I barely remember what I was taught throughout the years, but I still recall numerous lessons from Mr. Vindetti clearly. One day, after my grueling math class and my absurdly uninteresting history class, it was finally time for the one class I genuinely enjoyed, Advanced English.
In high school, I needed to carry a dictionary with me all the time; I took remedial classes and spent hours doing regular homework. However, I did not use the language as an excuse to do badly in the school, with perseverance and hard work I overcame the challenge and got outstanding grades. My greatest accomplishment takes place in high school. During my senior year, I made history at my school by being the first Latino to get a perfect score in the AP-Calculus class. I was really happy about
Reading short stories are and will continue to be a treat for everyone. Being able to fit a fully developed story in just a few pages is amazing. For a freshman in ISM who always needs to write an essay after finishing a story, short stories can be quite helpful. Not only do they entertain people in a short amount of time but they also ease the process of understanding the story. “The Mark of the Beast” is one of the few short stories that 9th graders encounter in English class and arguably the best one out of all of them.
I am thriving in school, and even though I don't enjoy coming to school as much as i enjoyed waking up at 11:00am, starting school after lunch, and finishing around three, all while still wearing my pajamas. I know it was the right choice. I am having a great time having feedback from teachers instead of just getting test grades and an unexplained “A-” on my end of the year portfolio. Being surrounded by people, Even if i don't necessarily like them has shown itself to be an extremely good thing in my life. Learning how to feel frustrated but still be kind, and how to work effectively in a group.
Descriptive Essay I have never thought that drawing would help me out in life until I tried it. The interest started when I was in second grade when I saw one of my best friends drawing. I am thankful for her, she is the one who taught me to be patient and practice makes perfect. It gets a little frustrating and overwhelming when your interest is there, but you are not good at it. I would even write and illustrate my own books and would read it to the class.
