One out of the three weaknesses is organizing ideas. Whenever I am caught up in the moment, I tend to lose track of organization in Writing. The second weakness is not being specific about my topic enough for the readers to understand what my paper is mostly about. My third and final weakness in English is punctuation. Every time I type or write, I tend to miss out most of the punctuation in my paper.
Over the course of the semester it has became easier by every essay. My improvement was some not severely, but learning the basic again will help me for all class and other English courses. Writing again was something I slowly was becoming accustomed again as before. I also learn that I can expand my
Some of my sentences were fragments with incomplete phrases. English 1010 class helped to improve and change my level of writing. The grade that I think to earn in Eng 1010 is an A. I practiced writing more frequently by keeping a daily journal. The journal helped to make writing a familiar part of my life and served as a continuing source of ideas for papers. I also wrote many helpful and important essays in
At the beginning of the school semester I did not think I was going to learn anything new or improve any part of my writing process. I assumed it was just going to be another class for me to drudge through as part of my degree program requirements. I soon discovered there is more involved in creating a well written paper than just putting words in print. Initially I was both surprised and disappointed in myself for turning in the Process Analysis Essay with a misspelled word in it. Furthermore, during the instructor’s critique of my essay, Ms. Flynn stated the paper “Needs more focus on a particular audience”, and more audience engagement.
Looking Back Looking back through my papers that I have written for Dual Comp. English III, I realized that I struggled greatly with the use of transition words. I had always used the same few in my papers for other classes and did not understand their importance. I learned that transition words can make a paper really good if used correctly, or really bad if they are non-existent. While writing for Dual Comp.
I think this unit was great and in all honesty should have been longer. We covered so many important topics that should be discussed with High School students to prepare them for the future. I think it helped me open up more to things that I didn’t really know about beforehand. The discussions that we had in class were also another very helpful tool that we should have had more of during the unit. I definitely had some preferences on the books that we read this semester.
Naturally, all courses were taught in English, as this was a British certificate (IGCSE). By then, I was sure that my second language was pretty much perfect. During that time I worked really hard in my classes to be able to study abroad in the U.S. Although my hopes were to get admitted into a university in the U.S right after high school, but things didn’t work
When I was in high school I think it is safe to say I was a pretty good student. However, I was nothing spectacular just an average B student like most other kids. My work ethic was not great as I had no clue what I wanted to do with my future. Then college came and whacked me upside the head. I realized that I was paying to be here, and that if I was paying to do something I was going to do it well.
Looking back through my days of writing in high school there was a lot I did not understand about the writing process. My writing was much unstructured and overall very poor compared to what it is today after this class. I believe that I have always been a good writer I just have not had the tools and knowledge to create a well written and knowledgeable paper. This course has helped me to meet the learning outcomes of learning to conduct factual research, making original and unbiased papers, writing different genres of papers in a professional way, correctly implementing the academic writing process, learning proper grammar and mechanics, and implementing critical thinking skills into my drafts. Essay three was the essay that helped me to
The skills that I have learned has dramatically improved those letters, allowing them to appear more professional. In the past, I would search for ways to write a decent paper; now I have the skills to perform my own paper without having to rely on having assistance from someone else. It takes me a little while to develop a starting point, but once I have the first sentence, my words come to mind much quicker. I have also caught myself listening to the words that people speak instead of listening to what they are speaking of. I have improved on my speaking with the public because of this class.
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
Many students of all ages have issues with writing, the only way to get better at writing is to have experience. I never paid much attention to my writing skills while in high school, I simply did not care about writing. This year as a freshman in college, I have struggled with writing this semester in GSW 1100. Even though I have not been passing papers, I understand that writing in college is extremely important to learn and develop. This is important because most courses in college have writing in them.
