This project was negative and positive at the same time. The positives were I overcame stressful situations. I also learned that I am good at English editing. My time management skills improved tremendously. The negative aspect was I was always stressed out, sometime the time constrains made my essays not perfect.
After reading the syllabus for “English 1110 First Year Composition” instructed by Steve Backus, it is clear that he values development and self-guided learning above all else. We can see that these are things that he values most because they are the most stressed points in the syllabus. They are very important things to be valued: development because that is the point of the class, to develop as a writer and learn how to become a better writer; and self-guided learning because it is a good life skill that can better prepare us for future classes as well as the real world. Development as writers is the whole point of the class. So it only makes sense that it is one of the most stressed points in the syllabus.
Throughout the entire course of English 101, I have had a surprising amount of successes. My writing overall has become significantly better; even to the point where my parents and others have seen a noticeable changes and complimented me. This says a lot about the opportunities and development you can receive from taking this course if you take it serious. Prior to this course I have always struggled to understand the contexts and learning processes associated with english. All of the brief lessons accomplished in class have shown to be successful by providing me with a complete sense of better understanding.
Another thing that helped me in this class is the journals, even though I did not feel like doing them they help me spot a lot of my silly errors and grammatical mistakes. Even though I have a lot more improving to do these class assignments help my writing to become more coherent and unified. Another thing that helped in this class was when our TA Mr. Shelford took over the class and taught the class a technique in proofreading our papers. Because our brain works faster than we can write at the end of writing my essay I read from the bottom up so my brain can
They will also help me improve on my weaknesses and become better on my strengths. I have grown a lot in language arts and have become more successful and I hope I can become better and better each year and achieve most of my goals.

Moreover, I would like readers to not only understand all the information available in this portfolio but also understanding the purpose of my portfolio. Some of my strength as a writer is my ability of edit and revise. Honest, I write like I’m talking and I’ve had many people tell me how much they enjoy my writing either in emails or stories. Moreover, one of my teacher in high said that “once a reader reads a book or an essay will feel like he or she is in good hands.” I couldn’t understand at that time what he meant, but I liked the idea and didn’t forget that phrase till this day. I would really appreciate if my readers feel that, and that’s what I’m trying to achieve.
I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?

. In this class, I learned many writing skills, so I could advance to the next level of English. Most interesting I learned was how and when to use commas on week 4. After I handed in my second essay, I was able to see all the punctuation, grammar, and other mistakes. My instructor Lana Boswell also wrote comments on the back of rough draft essay so that I could keep improving my writing skills.
This weakness embodied itself through my writing, especially since many of the prompts revolved around the subjective topics of our personal identity and language use. However, I was determined to succeed in this class, and made it a goal to practice putting my claims into words by analyzing their function, reworking the idea, and reanalyzing it. While this process was tedious, I significantly improved my ability to develop my claims over the course of the
