As an English student this semester, I have learned how to develop essays in an appropriate educated way in English 101. I have learned how to find and properly use different sources in my essays as well as improving on MLA format. This class has also improved my writing skills in my work place. I presently work as a secretary for a company, and my job consists of writing letters to people from time to time. The skills that I have learned has dramatically improved those letters, allowing them to appear more professional.
I appreciate how literature has formed the person I am today, and I poured out these feelings in my essay. Adding a quote to my final essay was recommended to me by my teacher. This helped improve my essay a great deal, and I am glad that I listened to this advice. However, I could have integrated a quote into my essay in a more effective manner. Nevertheless, I am proud of how the paper turned out.
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 also wrote many helpful and important essays in
Reflection English 101 was a great experience for me. I learned a lot about forming a proper essay. From the introduction, the thesis, the body, down to the conclusion. Grammatically, I learned the proper usage of commas. Prior to taking this course, I thought that you use a comma wherever you take a breath.
In triad K, I have been able to reflect on my literacy journey, create amazing study habits, and learn more about rhetoric. In addition, I have learned how I can use rhetoric in everyday life. Although I know I still have not achieved the complex writing, I strive to get to, I still make use of what I already know and just try to build on it. Writing essays such as these and the others we have done in the class have really helped transform me into a better writer. We talked about literacy sponsors and had to write a literacy narrative, where I reflected my growth in writing, and created goals on how I would like to improve.
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. Throughout this ENG 101 class I believe I have consistently improved my writing by using a refined process of outlining what I want to write about, properly identifying my intended audience, and continually
English 110 class truly helped her grow as writer. She took the structure and conformity she learned from her high school and applied it to a creative and freethinking side she learned from college to formulate her own personal writing style. Her attention to detail has improved causing her grammar and word choice to be even clearer. Most importantly, her enthusiasm for writing has drastically developed. Mary Anne knows the next three and a half years of paper writing will be a breeze because of the proper English introduction to a great liberal arts
Overall COM 210 has taught me a valuable number of things and I have retained valuable information I will need in the future. I enjoyed exploring internal business proposals and writing for your intended audience. I can say the most challenging part for me was the group project and I am glad I received a chance to work on that, to me it wasn’t the fact of the group project but the extensive work involved. I will take what I learned from that experience and apply it to others. While I was looking over my writing from the start of the semester up until now I can say I improved a great deal and still have some improvement
As a former AP Lang student, I feel that this class has been very beneficial for me in that it has allowed me to apply the techniques and strategies I learned last year toward more relevant subjects. Having the freedom of choosing topics to write about for our various essays made this class more enjoyable than the other English classes that I have taken. AP Lang focused heavily on the techniques of writing solid essays, but instead of writing about useful topics, we analyzed the short stories provided on the exams. Writing a personal narrative essay was very helpful in my college application process and allowed me to employ the same kind of strategies that I learned in class into my college essays. Likewise, creating a cover letter taught me many useful strategies that I will definitely put to use when it comes time for me to submit an official cover letter to a company.
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. While writing the unit 3 paper, I got to practice and meet the course objective of actively reading.
The reading strategies we discussed in class and in the courses content made me a better reader by showing me many different ways to read and write and understand it very well.

Putting together the reading, writing oral communication and examining media all connected in helping me become a good reader and helped me to comprehend the understanding of making a personal connection to the world around you. That 's what help 's you in the future to make the the best choices possible so that later on when you make a mistake in reading you can look at the experience you had and learn how to properly correct yourself because at the end of the day they all deal with different skill set 's but all help you to become better in everything you
On all my assignments I have used these tools and I have also visited the writing center on one of my assignments, which was very helpful. Another tool that I thought was helpful to me during my assignments was the synthesis matrix. The synthesis matrix is my favorite tool and I will continue to use this throughout the rest of my courses. It made comparing, contrasting, and combining different sources at one time very easy. It gave me a head start on the literature review and it made it come together more easily.
In the fall semester of 2015, my English Composition 1 class with 3 classes-per-week started. To conduct this paper I will briefly describe me. I am a freshman with the major of Petroleum Engineering. This information is relevant, in fact, because I will compare my expected major writing and the writing I am using right now. In a way to introduce me to future academic writings, the course of English Composition 1, indeed, has taught me important skills that can help me cope for future non-major required courses for me and in some aspects of my major.
When it comes to Rhetorical knowledge, I have developed mine throughout the semester in WRTG 120. After analyzing different writing and visual assignments for rhetorical appeals, I have gained a better understanding of the term Rhetoric and how this can help with my writing. The next topic is the writing process. I have increased my knowledge on the writing process in this class after doing multiple drafts for each of the projects we did throughout the class. Doing multiple drafts and revising over and over again helped me realized how much you can change a piece of writing to make it sound that much better.
