the Bedford handbook. I also planned to read a lot and spending more time in composing my essays by going through multiple drafts. Unfortunately, I didn 't followed out my initial plan as much I wanted to. I believe my plan is realistic, however the real problem is that I 'm lack of motivation. I know why I should work hard for my classes
What does writing mean to me? Writing means getting people engaged in your piece. It means people wanting to keep reading what you wrote. The biggest thing about writing to me is expressing your thoughts and letting your mind go. Using good word choice and having a strong voice in the writing is something that makes it good.
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. One of the biggest things that I have learned from taking this course is that good content is more important than sophistication. Both are very important in essay writing, but it is more important to have clear content and material so that the audience can understand your position. Last year, I always seemed to lose points on essays for not having sophisticated enough prose, so I came into this class under the impression that the most important things in a
When it comes to improving these skills, I believe that the only way to do that is to practice and work on incorporating those skills into each essay. I will not become comfortable with those skills unless I force myself to use them. I also found myself struggling to meet the word count requirement, I would easily be able to write a good portion of my essay, but I struggled to stretch and add to my ideas to reach the length requirement. In order to improve this, I need to further develop and elaborate on my ideas in each essay. Prior to AP Language I really enjoyed writing, but during that class my love and ease of writing went away
After-Action Assessment Some of my Assets in writing include my Thesis Statements, my tie in statements to my thesis, and the quality of the content. I will continue to try remaining strong in these areas, as well growing out of my weaknesses based on the strengths that I have. I enjoy writing when I feel no pressure, with time and practice, my stress level will go down consequently my writing will continue to improve.
Although I don’t feel my writing has improved over the year, this portfolio accurately depicts my strengths and weaknesses as a writer. The pieces in my portfolio well represent
In my mind, I see myself as an adequate writer. I've always love the thought of writing anything, because it lets me create an innovative story using my own experience and imagination. I may not be the best writer but I do believe that my writing style doesn't require too much work. Also, there is the fact that I love to write , which makes it easier on me to complete them as assignments and not as a chore.
Lastly I started to understand my general style of writing and the strengths and weaknesses I have. Overall I came into WRTG 101 with low confidence in my writing ability. Presently I believe I have a better understanding how my strength and weaknesses in writing. This experience has made me more aware of my own writing and given
However, writing 39C finally gave me some hope in writing. Unlike the former writing classes, 39C allows us to choose our own topic, do our own research, create complicate thesis and use supporting topic sentences. Also, the choice of source seems really importance in 39C. It requires us to do the annotated bibliography which is the first time I am asked to do such task. To look back
I felt that it helped me enrich my writing as well. Moreover, seeing different kinds of writing was delightful and fascinating because each person wrote differently, and I gain a lot from only editing. Furthermore, it seemed that I could edit others' works better than mine. I noticed that when I edited my work, I sometimes did not repair some of my errors, or did not erase ideas that should be erased since I was attached to my work. However, after noticing it, I started to edit my work again after approximately a week since I noticed that after a while, I was more capable to edit my work
As a "writer" I 've found my writing style to be more of a put together flourish of words and thoughts that in another 's opinion might seem like it never left the drafting stage (besides the few grammatical edits and big words to make it seem like it was written by someone smart). I went through a stage of writing in purely second person, and because of that I lost the ability to respect the need of more emotional descriptiveness. I 've gotten embarrassed to write in that context and end up passing it up for more serious tones that just don 't get my writing anywhere extraordinary. I want to gain confidence in my writing so I can go the places I want to go with it, while also learning to keep it organized and in line with my exact thoughts. My thoughts seem to provide a more well-laid out idea than my actual writing does.
I generally have a passive aggressive attitude when it comes to completing work. Where I notice that I am not only doing my own assignment but I am also completing other individual assignments. Where I am overloaded with work and frustrated, which effects my job performance. One solution I started was actively communicating my feelings in an assertive way, and standing behind when I say “no” I mean it.
My Writing Struggles After taking AP English III, I became better at organizing my papers, but realizing I need to improve my grammar skills and staying focused on my supporting points. All throughout my writing career, I was always thought to be an outstanding writer, especially using vocabulary above my grade range. Naturally, I would see myself as an excellent writer as well until I took Mrs. Bingham’s AP English II course. Mrs. Bingham always gave pointers, tips, and work to improve my class’s writing skills as a whole.
I’m not very good at writing. This paper that you're reading right now was a struggle for me to think of it. If I really try and work and keep brainstorming I can write a great paper, but it takes me forever. I’m not a writer. I hate writing.
