My peer editors find many misplaced or forgotten commas. I will continue to use my peers as a resource to help eliminate these errors until I have a better understanding of how they are used. When reading aloud It is often hard for me to tell if a comma is misplaced or not. Writing in my discipline will require me to have a complete understanding of APA, which I learned how to do in this course. It will also require almost, if not all the forms of writing we covered in this
I chose to write only a 3-A paper and learned a great deal about writing a proposal to help solve or raise awareness for an issue. I found this paper to me more difficult to find a topic to write about since it wasn’t based on myself or a memory. My struggle to find a topic made me realize that not all papers will be easy when you have limited instruction on what it should be about. Since the paper was so opened we had to come up with our own questions, concerns, or objections the audience may have on our proposal topic. In the proposal, I also learned how clear you must be for your audience so that all their concerns are addressed since they may not be aware of the problem you are
This is partially why I am applying to the Integrated Social Sciences degree. I believe that this is the best fit for my learning style, and I know I will be able to apply myself fully to this major. The largest part of this decision, however, is the knowledge of learning about different cultures. Being raised multi-ethnic, I was entranced by cultures around the world because I found a familiarity in the traditions of others that I did not find growing
I am now able to see the areas in which I lack in but I also recognize my strengths as well. To become a precise writer, you have to take the initiatives that will help you do so. These initiatives consist of working on different academic genres, planning and organizing material, identifying purpose and audience and for revising intentionally. It is also includes reading different types of texts and learning how to understand a writer’s argument and respond to the ideas of others.
Another thing I felt I could get better at would be detailing without flying off topic and losing that main purpose for the audience. The detailing could use some work (like everything else), but it is not too bad, at least to me. I could be more specific in certain cases such as, “To me, my older brother was my biggest influence when it came to my reading and writing.” (Sheffield, Eric Major Assignment #1, 2017) where I could have elaborated more, or just used a better sentence in general. But in that first paragraph, what I attempted to get across to my readers was, how important that memory was to me and how it impacted my literacy.
I was never confident in my academic writing, in fact I only knew so little. I didn’t know where I stood or how I could progress but now I do. I certainly feel a significant improvement in my growth as a writer because of this course, even in such a brief period of time. I have been able to graze the surface of a few of the course goals, but I am aware that there is still a massive amount of room to grow and learn.
I think the main problem I had was not believing in the thesis I chose and not picking a better one. Since I left this piece unfinished, there was a lot to be improved on it. There was only an introduction, so I did my best to add the remaining parts of it. This included writing support for my thesis and providing sources to do this. This revision was more difficult than the polished revision since I had to basically write an entire essay from the
One area of the writing process that still needs further development is choosing a topic. I find choosing a topic difficult because depending on what the subject it is, there can be a lot of different topics I could choose. Also, something else I’ve learned from the writing process is that revising and editing are the most important steps in writing an essay. These two steps are important because it helps crisp up and fix any mistakes in the essay.
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. Since we have been kids we have words we like more than others.
As a writer I know that it is necessary to take others ' feedbacks as a reflection of my writing process. Throughout the semester, I take my peers ' comment very seriously because it is the only way to know how good my writting skill is, how professional I am, and what kind of flaws I need to fix. I have used those comments intensively to fix my Issue Proposal essay, as well as my Exploratory essay. I believe that those comments are the reasons help my paper more compelling and effective. One thing I notice is that the comments remind me the errors that I have overlooked.
What I learned that certain events may occur and it will change your thought over something. The steps I had to take was to write a outline overview of what my essay was going to be like and think about the argument and claims I had to pick to support it and find quotes in the book that support my claims. We had to do timed essay about are theme of the essay were going to on. The way we wrote the essay was in TIED format because it would be easier to introduce the claim and back it up with evidence and finally discuss what it means. The leadership skill I used was to complete project effectively because I had to concentrate what I was writing about.
Overall, as well as developing my own competence to write more effectively, a special thanks goes to my teacher who sought my problem from the start and kept me on track to achieve my goals. If this did not occur, I would not be in the position I am currently in
This paper was probably one of the hardest paper I had to write just because I felt like I was on my own. I was scared at first but i felt like this helped me learn how to properly look and analyze a speech or a writing in general. One way this helped was I highlighted what I thought was a rhetorical device and I had to properly analyze it and see what he/ she is trying to accomplish through his or her writing.
I’m not very good at writing. This paper that you're reading right now was a struggle for me to think of it. If I really try and work and keep brainstorming I can write a great paper, but it takes me forever. I’m not a writer. I hate writing.
