My reading and writing skills have developed from learning my ABC’s to being able to construct a full essay. Throughout time, I have developed many concepts that have helped to enhance and also hindered the development of my reading and writing skills including the influence of my mother, my teachers, and the desire to teach myself. As a young child reading and writing was the least of my worries. I was more concerned about what kind of mischievous things I could do. With a lot of time and patience my mother taught me my ABC’s, then before I knew it I was a kindergartener.
I wound up changing different drafts of my papers in these classes. I feel like this is something essential that I have learned from these classes. Learning to reexamine and determine mistakes to have the assistance of my associates or my professor is something that will incredibly help the nature of my writing. I had a feeling that I was a solid writer coming into this class however now having the capacity to adjust my writing to distinctive styles and having the capacity to make fitting and compelling revisions to my work I have a feeling that I am a more finish English student. I was exceptionally stubborn to alter my work before these classes, on the other hand I now understand that modification are a vital piece of life as well as they are a critical piece of learning and writing.
I would never listen to them but when I had to do a standardized test in school, my reading comprehension section was the lowest. This was an indication that I needed to chip away at it so I just began perusing articles in the daily papers and endeavored to appreciate
Underliying the parts touching emition, taking notes down, and pondering over them have importance of writing well. As to me, i take care of devoting my time to read qualified books inspiring me to write. Still, there is such time that i do not get round to read even one sentence. At this stage, if i take the writing, i get a feeling that i repeat myself with the same words, or phrases. After all, writing is a process of creating a world with full of words.
Why I Enjoy Writing Since I began writing formally in the first grade, I have had a variety of teachers who have impacted my love or my distaste for writing at any given time. Writing comes naturally to me, and I enjoy it. As a small child, I would spontaneously write little poems and copy stories from books just for fun. Now as a student in a formal academic environment, I still prefer writing on a topic that I am personally invested in, or in which I have a deep knowledge. Throughout grade and middle school and now high school, the diverse selection of teachers that I have written for have each instilled a slightly different view of writing in me.
I have realized that I have a lot to learn about writing still, and that I have some pretty strong weaknesses to work on. When I got grades back on some of my pieces I was surprised by how bad I was doing. I continued to put all my effort forth in order to prove to myself that I could do it. In my revision process I worked hard at looking at what others said about my work, and ways famous poets wrote, so I could try to find a way to make my writing better. I especially like reading Langston Hughes, and Edgar Allan Poe poems to get inspiration.
Reflection In this semester, I succeeded in finishing several assignments and some in-class writing. During the writing process, I learned a lot about these different kinds of writing formats and realized my own weakness. As for the four essays that I wrote: summary and response paper, rhetorical analysis, argumentative essay and reflection essay, I’d like to introduce my past English learning experience first, then discuss each assignment individually and express my feelings and reflection. When I was in middle school, I didn’t like English composition because I had to learn and memorize the vocabulary and numerous sentence patterns from the text book. What impressed me most was that my English teacher asked everyone to memorize the articles
It was 7th grade a new year, new teachers, staring at my class schedule I quickly realized nothing has changed, scheduled right before sixth period art class was my nemesis English and Writing class. The time came for the first English class of the year, I took my seat in the back of the class slumped way down in the seat in hopes I would not be noticed as I scribbled doodles on the cover of my writing notebook. Mrs. Roberts walked in the room with her brownish grey hair rolled up in a in a tight bun, glasses that rested at the tip of her nose, and a stern look on her face, she reminded me of a strict librarian. The feeling of angst quickly washed over me and I remember thinking that this would surely be my most odious writing class thus far. I could feel my anxiety levels shoot up to record levels as sweat beads started to form on my forehead.
Writing is one of the macro skills that students need to develop in order to survive the rigors of formal education. It is for this reason that teachers continue to insist that students write papers, keep journals, or create a blog where they can publish their work even in courses that are not traditionally thought of as a writing course. Students are asked to write for various purposes. And because of its complexity, many students shun away from this task. Writing involves composing, which implies the ability to either tell or retell pieces of information in the form of narratives or description, or to transform information into new texts, as in expository or argumentative writing (Hadley, 1993).
