Throughout the duration of this class, I have been highly reflective on my work, but have failed to take into consideration past mistakes when developing new assignments. From the Personal Narrative Essay to the Destination Essay, common errors have take place amongst them all. Specifically, I have struggled to make the syntax of my essays less confusing and allow my explanations to be more detailed, but have always been successful in sharing interesting ideas with the audience. The first way that I have struggled to become more flexible and self-aware is by the lack of using correct syntax. Within almost every essay written during first semester, I came across multiple comments made by you that reflect my difficulty creating sentences
When I have an idea on my mind, I always struggled to write it out as a legit sentence. Although I know that I should change my wording when I am writing down my thoughts, I cannot think of a formal expression in a short time. This is the most time consuming process when I am writing. I find an interesting fact about my writing that I can write faster when I am writing my journals on real paper. It is not because the contents of the journals are easier since I can write both reading responses and unscripted entries faster than typing into my laptop.
I believe that, in my type of writing, I am more prone to incorrectly using punctuation, because of my tendency to type what I see, as if I was saying it. I believe it especially so because of my lack of knowledge in certain punctuation; such as semicolons & ampersands. (Not to mention parentheses). But, once again, thanks to this class I will no longer make small mistake in my writing like those in the previous sentences. Each lesson is available to me, should I forget, and I have many examples and tests to assist me in the future.
Another goal I had throughout the semester was to go outside of my comfort zone a little, I really didn 't like to talk in front of the class. However, as a Peer Mentor I had to do that more than twice which really develop outside of my comfort zone. Sgo that growth in getting out of my comfort zone was amazing and helped me
Again, my third one is a mess. And my last speech, I wish I reviewed all my facts and tailored the outline a little better. I know for a fact that I did my research, but I was too afraid that if I discuss all my ideas that will make me go over the time limit again. As a problem solution pattern, I didn't deliver an actual solution, although I did have a solution, I sadly cut it from my final draft. I found out that I need to develop my writing skills more, improve the organization of my ideas and always pay attention to what is being ask in the problem.
b. organization: My weakness in organization was my conclusion. Towards the end of the speech I began to rush and speak much faster because I was nervous. This took away from the strong finish and the impact that I left on the audience. c. delivery: For this speech my weakness in delivery was with my vocal variety. My voice doesn’t really change much throughout the speech.
Completing this project made me realize how fortunate I am to have my college expenses taken care of, and I will not take that for granted. I believe that my project made a difference in all those who heard or was a part of it, and in the coming years that education of high schoolers, regarding college costs and financial aid, will be more
One thing I just thought of that I could improve on for next time is my transitions. Not all my transitions flowed how I wanted them to, but that’s mostly because I have a bad habit of worrying about making eye contact so I didn’t want to look at my note cards and instead I messed up my transitions and conclusion. I stuttered at the end because I was going so fast to wrap it up so I could make time. I am confident that if in the future I were to practice just a little more I wouldn’t feel so rushed in the end. I also need to learn that if it doesn’t go with the topic, I should just leave it out of the speech.
Although I didn’t get a good grade on it, I know that I invested time and put hard work in it. The assignment that was not as good as I expected, was my Macbeth essay. I was under pressure, since it was part of my English final. I didn’t try my best because I was in a rush, but I should’ve studied the night
We lost enough of grades and so I decided to take some action in order to improve such behavior because such irresponsibility was unacceptable. I started to make a time management plan because I realized that without making a proper time schedule the girls would not co-operate. So, my second strategy to reach an A grade was to increase social contact among our group members as we only talked during class times we began to text as well as meet up outside class hours to give each other feedback regarding the project. The positive experiences that I gained was that no matter where or how a person goes social as well as time management skills are very important. In order to be punctual and successful in life one must respect and follow time.
Three habits I 'd like to change this year is to be more organized, procrastinate less, and study for my tests longer. I tend to leave some of my homework assignments to the last minute, which makes me rush. I convince myself that my assignments will be easy and to just do them at a later time. But in reality, I just cost myself hours of homework and studying. 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.
I was really worried about the results I would get on a college level. My grammar wasn’t up to that level, however, I learned new concepts that would make my paper much better. There were many parts of the paper that I would change after taking this course, but the most important lesson I learned was sentence structure and grammar. In the diagnostic essay that I wrote it had many grammar mistakes. “Looking back at
At first, I was nervous about the extra workload and how this could effect my grades, but looking back, applying for the honors program was one of the smartest things I could have done. The program offers many opportunities, such as conferences and traveling, to learn more about my major and much more. The honors program asks that we create a thesis in our senior year. I believe that this will be very beneficial in that it will make us well rounded in our subjects of study. It will prove to our peers and future employers that we are educated in our fields and prepared to start working in the real world.
Not only will they be ready mentally for college, they’ll be ready academically which is something that everyone wants to be when they’re starting college. Students will learn and comprehend the importance of college, which will motivate them to graduate high school and start their journey after. Knowing about all these things are important benefits that students will learn from attending and participating in these types of
My academic attitude, I believe, is important for a Resident Assistant to hold because as a RA, one should be a role model for the other members of the hall. While I do take my academics seriously, I also understand the value of communication and social stability while in college. I am very capable of delivering emotional support to any future residents that I may have. Due to my position on the Monmouth College Forensics Team, I, in no way would consider myself shy and have a very warm and outgoing personality that I feel would be able to help residents feel at ease. I value organization in my everyday life and I feel that my daily management skills would
