This gives me more time to think about what I want to write about, jot down ideas, and write a passionate paper. Although I spend a lot of time reflecting on an essay topic after this process ends, I write and when I start writing, I continue until I finish my essay. I am able to do this because of the previous jotting down of ideas I did. After finishing my essay, I usually proofread it and in this process, I use software such as Grammarly (free version), which automatically corrects my grammar. This process is then followed by class peer review (I often aim to finish the paper before the peer review process begins so that I can get effective critiques from my peers and my professors since she also reviews our work).
My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting.

One assignment that I found intriguing was when I had to write things that I carried to school and each sentence had to be a literary device. This was one task I enjoyed because it was time consuming, challenging, and also using my previous writing knowledge to create an entertaining writing piece. In the end, I was more confident with my writing because whenever I had an essay due, I would receive feedback about my improvements in my writing. Senior year was more writing than reading. During college application season, I had to write many essays and make my own résumé.
The cover letter unit is really useful because I learned a lot of new things. One of the most important things I have learned from this unit is what to include in a cover letter. When I registered for this course, the first thing I asked my friends who have taken this course is how to write a cover letter. This unit taught me what the three paragraphs are and what goes into each one. Second, proving your skill section is critical because it really shows how the skills should be interpreted in an effective way.
I am also always searching my essay to find ways to make my sentences sound rather intelligent. With that being said, I know my vocabulary and sentence structures are not always up to college standard. However, there is a plethora of sentences mentioned in this section to assist with that. In regard to one of our class’ discussion, we had to reflect on a reading, stating whether we disagreed or agreed with the author. I did not realize how well my passage would have sounded if I had used “Though I concede____, I still insist that ____.”
If I used this sentence to start my talk, others could better follow my logic by understanding my main argument and expecting what I was going to say. In addition, I was practicing making a thesis statement and concluding my ideas each time before I talked. This process helps me write an essay with
”(page 63) at which point, the lesson of personal connection and emotional impact of the written word are instilled on Baker. This essay has helped me to learn that passion and personal experience, or revelation of feelings, are what determine the effect of a written-work for the reader. I learned from this essay that sometimes instead of trying to write a perfect paper, that follows all the rules of grammar and writing, I should just write from my
Sommer’s talks about the idea of being inventors of our writing and that revising occurs a lot when making a well-written essay. Sommer’s state at the very end that “Good writing disturbs: it creates dissonance. Students need to seek the dissonance of discovery, utilizing in their writing, as the experienced writers do, the very difference between writing and speech-the possibility of revision.” I had thought that scholarly writing was the importance of writing something that could make an impact that others and revision was important yet at the very end of Sommer’s article, she states that good writing should disturbs and students must write in their own eyes and sense and be in dissonance. Thinking about what
Before attending university, I made a commitment to engage in English classes and join writing workshops, so I could refine my writing. I wanted to learn how to write better essays with a wider range of vocabulary and less grammatical errors. I knew this course would help me improve my writing, though I didn 't know much about the learning process and goals. Through this course, I have realized my weaknesses and strength as a writer and learned how to structure and write an academic essay.
The art of argument persuasion I’ve learned in this course is so beneficial for my marketing major. Other than that, it made me develop the essay writing skills necessary for success in my studies at the university level. This English course also taught me how powerful written words can be, and how the delivery of the tone is important for the reader. The tone of a narrative is different than the tone of a research, where the difference makes the paper. Also, the power in written words tells how much it is crucial to mankind.
As a reader one has to know what to look for and identify the main idea and understand what the author is trying to argue. Before taking Writing 10 I felt I was a good reader and able to identify the main idea in a prompt, but little did I really know. After going through the research process and trying to identify reliable sources I have essentially cut out the unnecessary information and I go straight to the idea or argument being made by the author. As of before, I would focus on every detail of the writing. Having been assigned readings and having discussions about the readings during class, I soon realized that writing is about an argument being made with supporting evidence.
When doing these steps you have done all the steps needed for critical thinking and this is how reading and writing are very important in helping you become better at critical thinking.

This class has taught me the foundation of how to become a rhetorician, and how that can benefit me in more ways than just English papers. I’ve learned key points needed to construct a successful argument in order to persuade an audience, whether that be on paper for a professor or in a job interview in the future. So far, I’ve written many prompts and slack posts. One of my shortcomings is speaking in my own voice in the paper and not fully delving into the proper lexicon. This is something I’ll be sure to nail in the final.
