I’ve grown as a student of English this term. I worked on several things including my weaknesses, what i struggle with on a daily basis and even my strengths. Doing this has helped me become a better reader, writer, thinker and a better person. I’ve also use the resources available, like going to tutoring and asking for help when i still feel stuck on something. Going for help is much better than trying to figure out for myself what i needed to work on.
Putting in a lot of time and effort just to have someone critique seemed harsh, but it helped me as a writer to realize mistakes in my writing. I tend to choose people wisely, having reliable sources can have a positive effect on my final draft. Editing other people’s essays helps me exercise editing for my paper as well. Practicing editing benefits both the reader and the writer. Understanding my peers strengths and weakness helps me translate what I can do with my writing.

Planning can help you to formulate ideas and to ensure that the structure of your final essay is logical and appropriate to the essay title. There is many different way of planning that I use such as drawing pictures, making lists, brainstorming, using graphic organizers. Planning is important because it make the writing easier when I plan what I’m going to talk about. Also in the article by Berkenkotter which she did study and experiment on Donald M. Murray to see how perfitonal academics and she found that planning is important process in Murray writing Strategy. “Some of the more provocative findings of this study concern the sub-processes of planning and revising that have not been observed in conventional protocols”.
Having my high school at the AP program established under SCNU was always one of my luckiest things happened to me. At here, I was trained to be priorly familiar with the U.S. education system and successful after coming to the U.S. where all the students were supposed to go. In order to be prepared, I was trained to write different kinds of essays, including laboratory report, social science research paper and literature expository writing. I have started to write all these kinds of essays since grade 10, and every writing assignment has gone through the process of outlining, drafting, peer proofreading and editing. At college, my writing style hasn’t really changed, yet, the way I write an essay has changed.
After-Action Assessment Some of my Assets in writing include my Thesis Statements, my tie in statements to my thesis, and the quality of the content. I will continue to try remaining strong in these areas, as well growing out of my weaknesses based on the strengths that I have.

I would have a million and one great thoughts in my head, but I'm not proficient at getting them onto the paper. However, i have thought of many ways to improve these impurities. And I have decided to start using a flow chart to organize my ideas in help me stay on topic so that I don't stray and get writers block.
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
It reads “ Asking what the discourse is about, then, involves identifying the subject matter or topic at the most obvious level, but also determining issues that underlie it and the states that should be addressed- in short, asking what questions need to be resolved by this discourse?” This ties back to my classroom due to the fact that Professor Clark-Oates speaks a lot about discourse and always reminds us to ask questions in our writing that our audience may have and respond to those questions. Types of rhetorical questions in writing make a big impact especially because someone with no knowledge may be the audience and our writing should be able to make sense to anyone who is reading. At times, I feel as if I forget that because when I’m writing I feel as if my audience already has some type of background knowledge but in most cases, that is not the case. Something important I caught was that “ Rhetors may speak in some professional capacity, a volunteer role, as a parent, or in some other role that may be less readily identifiable.”
For example, my last essay involved critical thinking where I chose to apply the same material from a previous essay but had to fashion the ideas in a totally different way. Outside the classroom or virtual cyberspace, my mind has begun to open up and learn new things which have allowed me to see that my processing problem is improving and can be overcome as I continue to learn and develop my writing, reading, and thinking skills. Having examined how I have grown as a writer, reader, and critical thinker, I can observe the writing assignments that I enjoyed and had the most difficulty composing in English
Strengths quest really hit the head on the nail with achiever as my number one strength. I relate to almost every aspect of this strength.
