I have enjoyed this class. My big take from this course will be the improvements had to my writing process. Learning items such as brainstorming, clustering, outlining and the usefulness of a first draft, I feel my writing is improved. This will fulfill the last requirement of the course, as I have completed and submitted all the others. Thank you for an enjoyable and beneficial eight weeks together.
4 April 2016 Dear Reader, As I reflect at the end of this semester on my work in my English 101 class, I am able to already see how much I have improved as a writer. This class has taught me many things and helped me grow and develop my skills as a writer. It has taught me how to use clear concrete details in my writings. I engaged in several assignments and peer workshop during this semester, and the feedback that I received from my professor and peers has helped me a lot.
English 102 through the Alabama Early College Program has taught me the importance of writing skills. When I first began online classes for English, I quickly started learning techniques that I needed to keep up throughout the semester. Each assignment and essay is due at midnight, therefore starting or finishing an assignment early allows the writer enough time to turn in the assignment. Throughout the five modules, I have learned how to write an argument and rhetorical analysis, conduct research and write an exploratory essay. In each module, I learned writing techniques and skills that I never knew before. English 102 has prepared me for future college classes and future job opportunities. During English 102, I struggled with rhetorical
Analytical writing is an interesting topic in English because it gives a wider and deeper perspective, piece by piece, of the situation. In addition, by writing analytically and having a better understanding, it is easier to argue one’s opinion. One of the benefits of taking this class would be that it connects more to the business area, which I hope to pursue, to advance my skills in writing critically and to be argumentative in business situations. Other benefits of being in English 1102 are having classmates that have the same type of enthusiasm as I do. I’ve realized after interacting with self-motivated people, I can comprehend more information and maintain good work
In this class I’ve transformed my writing from novice to expert and I am very proud to say that. Most importantly above all you will learn about yourself in ways that you never thought. That’s through the writings and projects we’ve done on others identity. The writings that shape our own identity were through blogs we’d have
I struggled all semester long and it really took a toll on me. I have never had to work so hard on an assignment to meet my professor’s approval. I had to go to the writing center a number of times just to understand what my assignment was really about. Overall, I learned that everyone has their struggles in college, not everyone understands it. I learned that even though I struggled every day in this class, I learned what I needed to work on the most and that was applying myself more.
English 102 so far has been interesting for an 8:30am class; I did not expect to be so awake for a class so early. Professor Denton makes the class attention grabbing, something few professors I have had, had been able to accomplish well or at all. However, I do not particularly like the portfolio grading style enforced by the English department; it leaves too much in the wind. Professor Denton removes the feeling of not knowing how well you are doing until the very end, by giving us suggestions for revisions and a letter grade to go along with the paper. This is extremely convenient, because it does not leave your paper or your grade up to speculation. So far, we have completed an editorial and evaluation papers. I liked the editorial paper
When registering for this class, a wave of worry ran through me, because I had minimal skill when it came to writing, particularly in the field of formal writing. The high school I attended was academically poor, we never wrote formal papers, just informal book and movie responses. Therefore I was apprehensive about this class. This course was quite intricate, but I attend skills that will aid me for the rest of my academic career. Rhetorical knowledge, critical inquiry, process, and conventions are all concepts I have acquired.
Writing essays and other types of posts has always been difficult for me. But, throughout this composition class, I have learned many interesting and new things about the different types of writing styles. When starting this class, I considered myself to be an average writer with run-of-the-mill vocabulary, ordinary sentence structure and typical finished products. This class has helped me greatly improve my writing skills in a variety of ways. I have learned multiple things by taking this class, such as new ways to approach writing and that there is much that I still need to learn about composition.
I began my year with four classes and one of them was my fourth block class, Dual Enrollment English 111. Typing papers and discussing interesting readings from the textbook has always been a good end to my day. Through the many English classes I have taken, this class has taught me the most so far. The experiences that I have in this class will guide me through college with a stronger understanding on how to write effectively and efficiently. Through Dual Enrollment English, I have learned how to write a well thought out paper while managing my busy schedule and have learned many lessons along the way.
This class helped me change my writing style. I have a habit of making my writing very personable. When I’m reading a story, I love being able to feel emotion through the words but what I realized is that not everything that is written is a story. That is something I never considered before.
In the semester prior I had some challenges in my english class. The challenges weren’t really bad, but the challenges were affecting my grade. For example, I would procrastinate on doing the notes for “To kill a Mockingbird”, over the christmas break. Also, I found it harder to do the notes by myself than it was with a partner.
Since I started my classes at the Montgomery College, I Have been improved my writing skills even though I would able to continue to learn the writing process well. Before I came to school, I couldn’t even write any thing. I started from American English Writing 1, but it was so hard for me to write well for many reasons. For example, I had trouble with grammar, to write organize, and to make my paragraph attractive. After a long grueling process, I have improved my writing Process.
Writing had always been one of my strengths, but it was challenging to take that initial step past the sixth form style of writing essays. Moving past this phase has greatly opened my mind. My thoughts are now able to be more complex because I have learned how to maintain a logical argument in a structured
My Writing Experience In previous courses, my writing skills have been mediocre or just enough to pass the class. Throughout the duration of this course, I have written a variety of papers using different techniques and skills. Previously I would write assuming that the only audience would be my instructor. This course has helped me realize that there are many steps and skills involved with writing a well-organized and easy to comprehend essay.
