My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting. Also, I sent my paper to The Writing Center, after I submitted my paper to my instructor to see any other mistakes I could have to improve my writing skills.
Also, papers I have read through for errors have very well imaginative details. The author for the paper gives enough detail that readers follow everything that is happening and can picture
Throughout the term there has been many writing assignments —big or small— that helped reflect my writing process or the process itself. In the beginning of the course I felt like I was an “ok” writer, but lacked some skills such as: organization, sentence variety, and vocabulary. Also, I did not like to write and had a feeling of dislike when forced to write. I felt like I improved on everything I wanted and was seen throughout the semester. I know how to organize my ideas, the worksheets given in class to work on sentence variety really helped, and vocabulary was built on some level.
My writing process consists of pre-writing/ideas, first draft, second draft/revising, editing/proofreading, and finally my final draft. To be honest, when I was growing up English was my favorite subject in school. I always felt I had so much to say and expressing it on paper was way easier for me verses speaking in front of people. In grade school, I was taught the bubble web prewriting process. I still use that process to this day to sort and organize my ideas.
The way I prepared myself for this book was on every page I had at least about three sticky notes stating the important facts and at the end of the chapter I had a one sentence summary stating the main idea opic of that chapter. This method I have found out has helped me the most it helps me remember certain things better due to my short-term memory loss. For my writing method, I tend to make outlines so I don’t get off topic. Both of my reading and writing method I have discovered for myself throughout my school years has helped me learn better and just in generally better myself academic wise.
“Living” with the piece and my analysis had a positive effect on the final draft. Even though I edited out many of the ideas, editing it every day allowed me to expand on fewer points. I critically read the final draft multiple times to identify awkward sentence structure and poor word choice. Making small changes over several readings, improved the final
People may think all writers are God of writing and they do not make mistakes while writing. However, there are many kind of writers. There is always levels on everything and for writers as well. When I first started to write for my papers for English 125, my experience was terrible.
I had building anxiety, fear, and doubt. Unfourtantly, my paper reflected those feelings. Being able to learn the importance of paragraph structure has helped improve my writing. When I started making corrections to my first paper I soon realized that the paper was going to have to be almost completely rewritten. The body of my paper was to short, there was no description in my paper
My Writing Experience In previous courses, my writing skills have been mediocre or just enough to pass the class. Throughout the duration of this course, I have written a variety of papers using different techniques and skills. Previously I would write assuming that the only audience would be my instructor. This course has helped me realize that there are many steps and skills involved with writing a well-organized and easy to comprehend essay.
I stayed after class and he made me read it again, and again, and again until I finally realized that even I found myself disagreeing with my overview of Hamlet and Death. I had been inflated with a false sense of confidence when it came to my writing ability, I had just assumed that he would be content with my writing, even impressed with it. Yet, I had put forth no individual effort to impress him. Several days later, I fixed it and received a 92, which I was certainly pleased with, but not satisfied, and I knew satisfaction would not come unless I presented him with something truly
Hello, I am Connor Love. I am writing this letter as a soon to be former student of Katy Leuschen 's "Waves of Change" writing 111 class. The first semester of my collegiate career has taught me many valuable lessons, from learning how to better succeed academically to how to deal with the flu without my mother. The lessons I have learned in writing class have not only helped my writing abilities grow, but also have helped me improve in other aspects of my life. 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.
My Comp I class allowed me to develop some of my writing skills that already existed. It also taught me new concepts that I had never learned before. Before this class I never knew how to use APA citation. This is now how I’m citing my last major essay.
The first event was a consistent thing which was teachers correcting my essays . Every time I would receive an essay or an assignment I would always have an error with using the words " their and there" and using the right conjunction words. The problem that I had was when I was younger I wasn 't taught how to use those words. For an example instead of using the word your correctly I would use it "You 're a pretty cool person. " When in reality you 're supposed to use it with the word "you 're."
My academic writing has predominantly taken place in AP English and Literature courses in high school. English 1102 is the first writing class I have taken at ISU, considering this is my first year of college. In AP English, we focused a lot on analysis and finding the theme, as well as other rhetorical devices in a wide variety of literature. In high school, I did not learn anything about APA style. However, MLA style and format was heavily emphasized by every English teacher I had.
In my writings in high school or just simply speaking in my everyday life, I find that I can go from one point to another randomly. I don’t consider that I need to stick to one point and finish explaining that point before moving on to my next point. One thing that helped me was rea example essays from other students. I think this helped put an idea in my head on what I needed to write and the structure that I should follow. Specifically, the compare and contrast essay and the classification essay.
