In the past, I have struggled in understanding what I have to improve on as a Pre-AP English student. Throughout this year, I hope to be able to comprehend myself as a student better to achieve my ultimate goal of success. I anticipate many challenges for the school year ahead of us, one of which includes my writing style. A key point that I deeply want to emphasize on is my efficiency and comprehension as a writer. In most cases, my struggle is when I am put under a timer.
By doing assignments and research work, students will be provided the opportunity to read extensively, do literature reviews and perform internet search to gather information in order to complete their papers for submission. Working on assignments and involvement in research work will contribute towards the development of critical thinking skills, as students are required to interpret analyse evaluate, explain and formulate
I have found that listening came natural to me. I nodded to show the client I am listening and understanding her throughout her discussion. My skills during my assignment have been identified and my ability to convey the core conditions and overall assessing my skills I used in my session with my client. This assignment showed me that listening takes more than ears and talking takes more than just a loud mouth. I will continue to grow as I continue to educate myself in the theories and necessary skills to work effectively with helping
McCarthy to inspire students to strive for excellence in whatever we do. I also suggest we have a mini field trip to a museum or a library so other students could pick out books to read and write essays on to improve their writing. Another piece of advice for future classes is to have those classes even though they pass the diagnostic essay to go over briefly the writing process as well as have them go over 20 common errors and helpful hints like we had this year those two handouts really helped improved my essays little by little. The writing class is already amazing with or without my advice, I hope I can come back and put my input one day into Dr. PHP class and become one of her many teaching assistants. I also want to try my hand at teaching her class, even though I have stage fright and I start to stutter when I am in front of people but I hope that I can overcome that and give the class knowledge of my understanding on a lesson or
AP Language and Composition in my ears sounds terrifying knowing that English is not a strong subject of mine. I have never been one to enjoy reading, but I always thought I was a satisfactory writer because I was receiving A’s and positive feedback. This made it a no brainer to take Honors English 10. It went well for a while, but then I was hit with my first D, and I did not understand why. I was angry and upset.
I have learned through English 102 that a strong academic sentence needs to flow well and include a large vocabulary. In the Rhetorical Essay Draft, I used words focused on the past and my professor said use present tense when expressing general truths, when writing about literate and when quoting, summarizing, or paraphrasing an author’s view. I have learned that writing in the present tense will make the essay have a stronger academic tone. Each tip that my professor has given me helped me excel on each essay throughout English
When I look back, I will be grateful for the opportunity to overcome one of my fears-public speaking. In AP English, I learned several useful lessons. First, I learned that time management is crucial. The time given to complete an essay must be used effectively. Many times I found myself waiting till the last minute to complete an assignment.
Nevertheless, I have continued practicing and I have improved many items of FCE listening test. Reading : It was quite ok . I did not have bad grades and my performance was ok but I know I could do better than I did . So I will try to make it better for the next semester . Phonetic : I think I did good but not as good as I wanted .
To begin with my reflection, I have to mention that I was excited with the units that we chose the previous semester as teenager issues, alternative pedagogies, art, and language consolidation. However, I thought that the first two units would be more important than arts and language because, for me, teenager issues and alternative pedagogies could be more useful, helping us to understand our career. But when the dossier was uploaded, and the teachers explained the methodologies that would be included in the classes. I reconstructed my thoughts, realizing that this semester will be focused on pedagogic topics. On having presented the IEL program, I felt excited because in the other university that I used to study, they never taught me about
Major assignments -Work Projects- taught me how to write essays and include employed academic documentation (MLA). In this course, I’ve completed various reading assignments, did independent analytical thinking about what I’ve read, participate in discussions on what I’ve read, write about what I’ve read, and carry out research, this emphasis on reading was to show the importance of critical reading, and how it is going to benefit my studies. Understanding this academic essay structure, the use of rhetorical strategies in essay writing, writing a summary, formulating a thesis, and writing essays using rhetorical strategies. All these skills were the fruit of researching and
