However, I was also able to identify my weaknesses in reflection-on-action. Currently, I will write notes down directly on my lesson plans. I may write that a certain strategy worked well in helping students understand a concept, or I may write down what I added into my lesson last minute to make it more engaging.

Specifically, I will be writing about my struggles with writing analytical papers, some of the personal challenges that I faced while writing them, and the techniques that this class equipped me with that helped me to overcome them. Since analytical papers aren’t easy for me, my strongest essay this term was the Literacy Narrative essay at the very beginning of the term because it allowed me to combine my more creative writing techniques with the analytic paper style the class was designed for. I think that there were many reasons for this, but I think the biggest one is that I tend to be more of a creative writer and so an essay like that was perfectly up my alleyway.

On top of that, I had an English class where my teacher would give us a poem and we would have to analyze it. She would then tell us to come up with our own poem and short stories to present to the class. In this class, I learned how to annotate texts and to understand why the author wrote it the way he did.

While taking English 090, I have learned to overcome this fear. Getting feedback from others during workshop days was very useful because I received tips on how to make changes to your paper to make it stronger. This gave me the opportunity to practice my critical reading/thinking skills by actively reading our partners papers. This also gave us the freedom to leave remarks in the margins of others’ essay to not only help them, but help ourselves learn.

Reflective Letter on MWA #1 I believe that the purpose of major writing assignment number one was to improve our interview skills and solidify our understanding of genre as used in the context of our class. For this writing assignment I created a Weebly website that is meant to teach the class about the most important genre used in the field of computer science.

Geoffrey Sirc wrote “The Autobiography of Malcolm X as a Basic Writing Text” to convey to his students and all students of literature that this book “teaches the importance of passion and strength of character” that these are “essential attributes to growth as a writer.” This journal article reaffirms the reason why all students should be required to read the book and Sirc states that autobiography allows the student to develop a deeper understanding of how to be inquisitive when confronted with stereotypes or ignorance. The affirmation comes in the form of a quote from Malcolm X in the epilogue of the book “People don’t realize how a man’s life can be changed by one book” (X and Haley 400) and the impact that statement would have on future
