However, I have somewhat grasped what it means to writing purposefully and academically. This class has also prepared me for what I assume will be my future profession, law. The best lawyers are masters of persuasion by utilizing the available knowledge that is accessible to them. This class has solidified many skills I had lacked. Throughout this year, my writing skills are quite better with some areas that I still must work
Over this semester, my writing is better than before because I can express my thought clearer and more logical. The thing that helps me make my ideas clearer is the discussion during SAGES seminars. Each time before I started talking, I always went through the words in my mind so that I could prevent stumbling over words. When I agreed or disagreed with an idea, I first thought about my arguments and in the end concluded my thoughts in a sentence. If I used this sentence to start my talk, others could better follow my logic by understanding my main argument and expecting what I was going to say.
Which helped me get better in language arts. I have many goals for myself in language arts that I hope to complete by the end of the year.In my life, my mom loved to read. When she was little so she gave me book recommendations that she liked which helped me learn to love to read. Reading and writing also come with accomplishments and struggles along the way but in time you improve and become better. I have learned my strengths and weaknesses
I think my growth is very evident in my final paper. I applied many of the new techniques and styles of writing that I learned into the rhetorical analysis aspect of my paper. My final paper is more analytic and focuses on my own arguments. I incorporated the new skills such as synthesizing my own argument through past examples into the essay. Furthermore, I was very careful with my work to eliminate grammatical and citation errors.
My greatest strength relies on my adaptability, as I create solutions to novel problems through repurposing the resources that I possess. Within class, the prime example of this strength lies in the reading analysis essays throughout the year, specifically with the one concerning Pudd'nhead Wilson, as while I read the book, I marked the pages with the most significant quotes relating to character analysis or central message. In writing the essay for Pudd'nhead Wilson, the prompt required an essay supporting, refuting, or qualifying that "social justice breeds irony." With my marked pages, I could quickly access the most important quotes from the book, and my adaptability allowed me to connect the examples of character motivations and the work's
I came into this class thinking it was going to be just like high school. Unfortunately, College Writing One is far more complicated than high school. I will continue to grow while learning many methods to improve my writing skills. Trying to improve your paper by not using the same words over and over again is more difficult than most people think. Another struggle is trying to find an advanced word selection to replace those words we tend to use often.
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
I learned much more about APA format than I thought I would such as in-text citations. I did not know in-text citations were so important until I took this class. It was great to understand the different types of plagiarism and different techniques to avoid plagiarizing. My weakest writing assets would have to be coming up with a great introduction and building my body so it runs smoothly. I had and am having trouble with
With my current drafting process, I write my entire essay, read what I have written and add a little bit more if something comes to mind. I came into English, with very poor writing techniques. One of the reasons that probably caused me to not get full grades on essays in school is because my first draft is what I would submit, rather than reviewing and editing it to improve it. Something I take great pride in is my grammar and spelling. Although I sometimes
Today I still do a lot of reading but not as much as before do to working and schoolwork load. I realize how important reading and writing is as I get older and become more educated about the issues in education. My goal as a social studies teacher is to help students raise the literacy level but yet have a great time learning new things. I want every student I teach to obtain a good quality education. My students obtaining a good I have to be a good quality teacher who is in the interest of their
