For instance while thinking about the synthesized essay and the amount of resources needed to write it, I made a plan which helped me manage everything on time. Planning for the structure of my essay helped me use a good amount of recourses and write a good essay. Since I am still in my Freshman year I think that such skills are going to be very helpful in the future. I think that I will be using what I learned from this course in many other courses including, Surveying lab, writing 204, and many other courses. This shows how significant this course
For example, my last essay involved critical thinking where I chose to apply the same material from a previous essay but had to fashion the ideas in a totally different way. Outside the classroom or virtual cyberspace, my mind has begun to open up and learn new things which have allowed me to see that my processing problem is improving and can be overcome as I continue to learn and develop my writing, reading, and thinking skills. Having examined how I have grown as a writer, reader, and critical thinker, I can observe the writing assignments that I enjoyed and had the most difficulty composing in English

Understanding my peers strengths and weakness helps me translate what I can do with my writing. A writer that has stronger writing skills gives me the advantage to improve my writing skills just by proofreading. When I am reading my essay aloud, I do not notice writing errors until someone else reads.

Reading and Writing will help me further my college education, and it will help me get to my goal. After reading Stephen King's essay "Reading to Write" (72) it opened my eyes for writing. Although being a professional novelist isn't a goal I want to pursue in my life, writing is something I will need to learn how to do with good form. When it comes to the writing department, it's not one of my best skills. King says, "Good writing, teaches the learning writer about style, graceful narration, plot development, the creation of believable characters, and truth-telling" (73).
Reflective Letter on MWA #1 I believe that the purpose of major writing assignment number one was to improve our interview skills and solidify our understanding of genre as used in the context of our class. For this writing assignment I created a Weebly website that is meant to teach the class about the most important genre used in the field of computer science. To successfully do this I first gave a brief description of what computer science entails and that what it does not, I then followed up the description with a few questions and answers from my interview while also describing my professor that I interviewed. Finally, I began writing about my genre—developmental collaborative writing on a whiteboard—and gave its purpose followed by a few links. These links lead to the descriptions of my genre’s audience, rhetorical factors, structure, and style of writing; with all of the information presented on my website there should be a good enough description of developmental collaborative writing to help my fellow classmates understand what it is.

Kurtney shared that most goals and objectives also consider the student’s specific disability; some mentioned were various emotional disability, psychiatric disorders and mild
Sehyun Joseph Kim, MGMT 102, Professor Hite Self Reflection Analysis Throughout this quarter, taking the various self assessments both reinforced previous knowledge that I already knew about myself and taught me more about myself. Even when I knew which choices would yield me a higher score, I forced myself to admit my flaws and choose the honest answers or else there would be no point in these quizzes. In this paper, I will be discussing the top three self assessments that helped me realize my strengths and weaknesses as well as habits that I may need to change to become a better employee and leader.

I can recall a record number of times my wife has challenged my communication skills. To improve one 's communication, you must develop good reading writing and listening skills. (Taylor, 2015) For me, one of the keys to developing some of my skills is paying closer attention to my reports at work.
