I was presented with a whole new curriculum and teaching styles. Needless to say, my school grades went down since I was still adapting to a new language and school system. My first two school years in the United States were by far my worse but that did not stop me from succeeding. Even though I was young, I was able to understand what I was going through. I knew that I needed to not just put in the same effort as other kids my age but far more.
This practice had disastrous consequences with the II Corp operations order for the defense of Sidi Bou Zid. The order specified the exact locations of Combat Command A’s battalions and some companies (thus, II Corp not only bypassed the division HQ, but also bypassed BG Mcquillen’s Combat Command HQ). To make matters worse, since MG Fredendall rarely left his HQ, this overly directive order was based only on a map
My journey of reading and writing throughout my life is one started during my childhood in elementary school. Even though reading and writing have been a struggle for myself, I am still continuing to try to increase my reading and writing levels. As a child, I had difficulty in reading. Because of this, the school required extra classes for reading. It was not until my senior year in high school that I wrote my first thesis paper.
The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read. Many people also feel that this book is irrelevant to student’s lives. However, kids should learn what life would be like for kids at their age in a different time period. Like what was stated before, in a history class, when we learn about the history, we learn about the straight facts, not as much of the personal lives of people living in that time. Since the novel is showing the personal recollections of one boy in the time period, students can identify the similarities between the two lessons.
I personally think that is an easy decision. I struggled while reading “The Sixth Seal” by Mary Wesley and would not read it again. “The Sixth Seal” by Mary Wesley lacked detail, did not have a well written plot and most of all was not written in a good format. If you struggle while you read a story it is harder to read and you will not enjoy it. I am not planning on reading the “The Sixth
"Your research paper needs some work, but 9/11 is an interesting topic." The quote as the event of my high school senior year was still stuck in my head as I look back to what I've got on my research paper about 9/11. If someone would tell me this a long time ago that when writing any essay, there are rules to follow in order to not repeat the same mistakes every time I attempt to make a rough draft. Consequently, It has been difficult for me to avoid grammar, spelling, and sentence structure errors. So, I questioned myself, "What it takes to finally be familiar with those rules?"
During my first class I had to write a paper in APA format, I was very stressed since I was not use to this format. It took many different tries and help from the writing center to be able to have a proper APA paper. Since that class I have learned that it does not have to be stressful as long as you have an idea of what APA is and you use the resources like the APA manual for references. Along with learning APA style I have been able to expand on my critical thinking abilities. When I read an academic article I know what parts to look at to understand what the authors are studying and wither they found a significant difference or not.
Throughout my years of writing in high school, I was focusing only on writing to fill the basic requirements to pass English. Over the time interval of the course WRI101, my writing completely transformed. Analytical thinking, balance, and flow were the focal skills taught in WRI101 by Dr. Daniel Fredrick. Through learning about what are considered to be the two most important skills in writing, content and style, I was capable of elevating my writing in a manner that distinguishes it from the typical college paper. From the beginning of the course, I was introduced to novel aspects of writing.
Growing up over the years I have thought of writing to be a very limited field. Limiting writing to only published books, magazines and writing my essays for school, but over the course of the last couple weeks I have learned otherwise. Having read the texts that were assigned in class and discussed them as a group, has really allowed me to see that there are more parts to writing than the actual task of writing and allowed me to form my own ideas of good writing. Although some people believe that grammar and spelling makes good writing, in actuality good writing is created through understanding the context, connecting with the audience and realizing the genre you are writing in. The first of many parts of good writing is being able to understand
Sometimes find problems translating or expressing some words and meanings. Usually, my writings are not well organized and the tone is totally off, that’s because I usually drop in sentences, some of them are literally translated in my head using the available words in my dictionary, and then I start organizing these random sentences together to make paragraphs that make sense. The thing is I know if a piece of writing is good or bad but when I know that it’s bad I don’t know how to fix it, and I had few times that I asked Ms.Massey to help me with a piece of writing because it doesn’t sound good to me. Sometimes, I want to say something in English but I cannot translate it, maybe it is just not in the English language
In the book, when the tiles were falling and letters were being discarded, it caused a communication gap. As Ella wrote, “You were right about the fallout from this absurd law. Not only does it cripple communication between islanders, it builds rock walls between hearts” (Dunn 22). In the book, not only did the letters get shorter, the lack of communication prohibited by their absurd laws made the people unpleasant. They were lonely and made many people rather leave than live like
During "Waves of Change" I learned how to revise my work, more importantly, that uncertainty during the writing process is normal, and revise my thinking. Writing scared me in high school. The idea of writing a 10 page research paper, or a 6 page opinion essay terrified me. My fear of writing was created by the success I achieved in other subjects in school. Throughout my adolescence, I became accustomed to
- There is still so many difference between the results of the different studies, which makes it quite impossible to make a clear and unambiguous decision. - In a lot of studies, there was a lack of information regarding the methodological quality of the studies. For example: blinding of the subjects and concealment of the allocation weren’t always explicitly mentioned. - In the study of Creutzberg et al. the control group was taken from the study of Schols et al..
During my college career I have been doing a wide variety of writing. All of which have assisted shaping as well as molding me into an effective writer. Some of the classes that helped improve my limits to excel as a writer are my English 280 class, intro to Computer Science class, and lastly Juvenile Justice Class. I have done a few segments of writing in the three semesters of law enforcement class that I have taken here at WIU. Never would I have thought that the three major writing assignments that would shape and influence me into the writer I am today would come from of my LEJA classes, but they have.
When reviewing the essay, I wrote, I discovery several error in my writing. First error was when writing a paper, I usually choose the wrong word choices. I tend to have to many commas, and to many complex sentence. Accordingly, having improper punctuation that should not be with a subject or a verb. There was some fragment in the writing and incomplete sentences that did not belong.
