We all make mistakes, and most of the time we learn from them. From my Preliminary Writing Assignment to my Paper One, I have made numerous improvements in my writing but also many mistakes. Coming into College Writing One, I did not have papers to write to improve my skills in my upcoming years in college. Within the two papers I have written, I have expanded my word selection for more detailed paper, reduced fragments, and reorganized my thesis method for a better outcome. I came into this class thinking it was going to be just like high school.
In the past, many problems prevented me from writing excellent papers. Throughout my years of writing in school, the papers I have written for this class have challenged me the most. In the beginning of the semester, I did not fully understand how much time and effort I needed to put forth to write a college essay. My past English classes did not prepare me for writing college-level essays, nor teach me the proper way in which to write the papers. The essays I have written this semester have improved immensely thanks to the feedback from both Mrs. Menetre and Mrs. Fleming.
So I did my best to try and show that I didn’t need the extra help like some others did, but all my hard work went in vain and I was never able to get out of the class. I began to feel as if my writing wasn’t good enough and I began to slack on my writing and reading. And by the time I got into middle school, I wasn’t as enthusiastic about literacy as a once
Writing is one of my many concerning in my PhD program. Every time when it comes to writing I feel nervous and stressed. I actually I used to love writing in my first language and I was good at it. Nevertheless, writing in English is another experience and quite difficult. To be honest I tried to avoid the class at first time, even though we have to do writing in other classes.
I think the main problem I had was not believing in the thesis I chose and not picking a better one. Since I left this piece unfinished, there was a lot to be improved on it. There was only an introduction, so I did my best to add the remaining parts of it. This included writing support for my thesis and providing sources to do this. This revision was more difficult than the polished revision since I had to basically write an entire essay from the
Back then, I never would have thought I would get good grades in any english course. Today, I can recall how and why I was failing and how I learned to improve from it. In sixth and seventh grade I wasn 't the best english student. Many literary works were hard for me to fully comprehend. I would study for long periods of time in order to understand the themes, and techniques used.
After I took his class, it totally changed me in so many ways. The terrified girl that I was on my first day of class no longer existed, he made me realise that before you have an excellent piece of writing you have to go through several different attempts and the feedback that you get won’t always be what you expect. Before I took his class I wrote just like anybody else but I really did not put a lot of input or hard work I just did it because I needed to. But as the end of the semester approached, I felt a bit more confident in the way I wrote, and I started to actually see the progress I had made in his class. The negative comments soon turned into positive feedback that allowed my self esteem to go up and realise that I was get on my mind that I was actually able to produce a good piece of writing if I set my mind to it., This made me feel very content with myself, because after a road full of struggles in my writing my hard work was actually being recognized, and I received the positive feedback that I so much had yearned for, and I realised that and I had worked hard enough to make this
Being born in a family that has a love for mathematics, I was not exposed to writing that much when I was younger, and as I grow up, I tend to stay away from anything that has to do with writing. Therefore, my skills were lacking compared to other people. Even though I did not have the worse grades in Writing class, I still did not consider my essays to be well written. However, the two writing courses in USciences, which are WR 101 and WR 102, have helped me a lot in strengthening my writing skills. Three of the papers that I wrote within this first year of college are: Literacy Narrative, Editorial, and Long Argument.
Since words are the base than I would struggle to even write multiple sentences without getting so upset. I became overcome with embarrassment to write stuff on the board because I lacked confidence in myself, since I could not spell. The confidence deficient distracted me from writing in yearbooks to group projects and avoided writing all together. These issues all started from my speech problem causing my writing to
Mumbling the words I 'm not sure how to pronounce. Reading quietly so no one can hear me fumble my words was how I read when called on to read in class. However due to being forced to read To Kill a Mockingbird, Fahrenheit 451, Dante 's Inferno, and the Odyssey in a short period of time taught me to read at an average high school pace. My reading times became shorter while the pages grew in number. The idea of reading aloud will forever strike fear into my bones, but I have regained enough confidence to make it through the
