Critical thinking is like a muscle, you have to work it out over and over before it gets strong. Passively learning the material will only get you so far, as we have discussed in LSC 101. I need to make sure that I am actively engaging in the classroom, this will allow me to flex my critical thinking muscle on a daily basis. Besides not actively engaging in most of my classes in highschool, I could get away with writing papers the night before and not studying at all for math tests, that is a bad habit I need to drop. When I look at it now, I can see that it was because of a lack of pressure.
While in the planning phase, I took several days to research my topic. I believe that taking a long time to research and read materials about my topic helped me when it was time to write the paper, because I acquired so much knowledge about my topic. Also in the planning phase I developed my outline as well. Writing an outline was extremely helpful because whenever I was unsure of what to write next, I just looked back at my outline. The only thing I did not do during the writing process was use note cards.
I have had a great impact on them, and so have they on me.They dug deep and discovered one of my fatal flaws, I told them about my past and why I hesitate to speak about myself. I must admit, I started as the therapist, but then they turned the table and sat down to listen to my growing despair. I feel proud of helping anyone that I can. With this experience I demonstrated to myself that I am persistent, that I do not take setbacks for granted, that I am amenable, that I care about people, that I am a human, that I give mutual support, and perhaps the most import one to accept
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
That 's why I want procrastinate less so I can get more things done and I 'll have time to do things outside of school. When I study for my tests, I mainly read over flashcards, notes, look in the textbook for reference, and write things that I need to memorize over and over again. Even though I do this, I fail to focus and do it enough times where I can ace my tests. By extending my
Even though this teacher is ELL certified, which means she has worked with many English Language Learners and that was her work path for a certain amount of time, she still has a full class of other students that she has to teach. From my observation during pause and overall, I did not see a professional come in and take one ELL student at a time and work with them one-on-one, granted I was not there every day, but I think that concerning the student, that type of work should be done on regular
When I began Writing 101, I was not familiar with much of the course material and my writing skills were not developed; through the assignments and learning resources, I have now developed the skill set to develop thesis statements and complete coherent essays. In week one of Writing 101, the class was introduced to the writing process for college level writing. We focused on reading and note taking strategies to help assist us with starting and finishing the writing process. We also learned how to identify and correct sentence fragments. Our first writing assignment was due in week
That became my motivation. Nothing was as difficult as writing eleven essays for Saldivar in two nights. The grading was never as demanding. My teachers weren’t looking for these large-scale concepts, but I still wrote as if I were getting my essay critiqued in class the next day. Saldivar’s standard became my
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.
My mind didn’t go straight to mental clutter. At some point in our lives we are all faced with metal clutter whether we want it or not. Often to do with worrying too much about what has happened in the past. One day I went to school and I ever said goodbye to my dad and I thought about all day and wasn’t happy until I got home and said goodbye to him. Another time I called out an answer in class when I wasn’t supposed to and ended up thinking about it all day even though it wasn’t even that big of a deal.
