I selected WRTG 101 because it was a required class towards my undergraduate degree. This is a class that I should have taken earlier in my pursuit of my degree; it would have been extremely beneficial to me with my writing assignments for other classes. Being a student of WRTG 101 employs me to use my critical thinking skills in conjunction to my writing skills. Prior to taking this class, I thought that my writing skills were above average; however this class has provided instruction and feedback that I needed improvement in several areas. Each Monday, I would log onto UMUC.com to read the Course Content/Alerts to see what the status of my progress.
The course outline indicates that at the end of the course, I will acquire critical reading, rhetoric analysis and writing skills. I believe that at the end of this class, I will be able to conduct critical analysis of reading material and present elaborate rhetorical analyses. I look forward to applying the skills and techniques I will learn in English 1301 to my writing during the course of my college studies.
Reading book and doing exercise: Sat. I read slowly from section 1.1 – 1.5 in order to grasp the difference between population, statistic, parameter and sample.

Starting the age of 5, we come to school everyday to learn something and expand our horizons. We start with the basics, such as the ABC’s and our 123’s, until we work our way up to a more in depth discussion of each subject, such as English II. This semester, I have learned topics in the field of English II,such as grasping the underlying meaning a book presents, the 12 archetypes, even the subject of debate. The semester began with the discussion of “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd. The first day of class we needed to have the book annotated and ready for discussion.
What Wiley could do to advance himself for the next day/ the rest of the semester, would be to read the chapter, answer the questions at the end of each section to prepare for the content, and take the practice test at the end of his chapter. We go consecutively, in order, through the book, so he could literally be prepared for the next day by seeing the content before hand. If you think this would benefit him I can make sure he goes home with that every night, and make it due for him.
Semantic Memory- it is the memory for facts and names and for schemas to organize our world. • Personal life- I use my semantic memory every single day when I come to school. There are certain things and ways we should act as students. For example, I come to school with my homework done because that is what a student ought to do. If I have questions about something, I talk to my professor.
A semester have passed in a blink of our eyes and we are heading toward the end. Therefore, it is time to reflect upon my writing skills. Earlier in the semester, I aimed for an A in this class and I also wish to become a more efficient writer. In order to do so, I planned to use a lot of the available resources such as the writing lab, Learning Curve, and the Bedford handbook. I also planned to read a lot and spending more time in composing my essays by going through multiple drafts.
I continued to come prepared to class. I’d always have a Chromebook, a notebook, and a writing utensil on me, along with any book that we were reading and a completed homework assignment. I strived to hold myself accountable and get all assignments done on-time using the time allotted to me. I also made myself responsible for my own success, by putting in more time that I ever have this year, whether it was going to the practice AP test on Saturday morning and getting things completed at home. I tried to focus on the quality of my work, getting it done a few days ahead of the due date so I’d have plenty of time to revise it before I turned it in the first time.
McCarthy to inspire students to strive for excellence in whatever we do. I also suggest we have a mini field trip to a museum or a library so other students could pick out books to read and write essays on to improve their writing. Another piece of advice for future classes is to have those classes even though they pass the diagnostic essay to go over briefly the writing process as well as have them go over 20 common errors and helpful hints like we had this year those two handouts really helped improved my essays little by little. The writing class is already amazing with or without my advice, I hope I can come back and put my input one day into Dr. PHP class and become one of her many teaching assistants. I also want to try my hand at teaching her class, even though I have stage fright and I start to stutter when I am in front of people but I hope that I can overcome that and give the class knowledge of my understanding on a lesson or
The students will then place that definition under the flap that corresponds with the vocabulary word. I will continue this process until all of the vocabulary word flaps have definitions. Active Engagement I will then turn the students’ attention to the middle section of their lapbook. We will be creating a map for the fairy tale stories that we have been writing. I will use the class one to demonstrate.
Recommendations Based on the data that I have collected both from the WJ III assessment and the CBA that I conducted, I would recommend that the focus of Brian’s help should be on applied problems with focus on math fluency. There were other areas where performed below grade equivalency but I feel that the focus should be on math fluency because there is a chance that once he has mastered math fluency, his performance in the area of applied problems may come up as a result. I recommend that Brian be tutored at least twice a week, every week for thirty minutes per session in order to help him with his math fluency and applied problems. This tutoring should be completed at home by his parents as a way to enhance the lessons that he gets while
I am trying my best to keep up with all my classes and to get out of all of them with new information and high grade. In order to success in Spanish 111/181 class, I will spend about two hours outside class for every hour send in class, as well as I will keep an agenda for all the homework and assignments dues to do not forget any. There is a homework assignments and preparation that I have to do before each class; this allows me to create a schedule to when to study and do homework. For example, I will spend an hour each day after school preparing for next class, doing any homework, and studying. To learn the Spanish language, I will need to practice speaking and listening to Spanish, so I will try to contact with some of Hispanic friends using Spanish, as well as, listening to Spanish songs and try to understand them.
A third example would be to keep your grades in check, and by that I mean you should always turn in your assignments. There are many things to do to be prepared. One of the many things I do to stay prepared is take my books for my next classes to my class before that. Other things I do are that I put my all my books in my locker before my WIN class so I can go straight to lunch. When I put my stuff in my locker before my 1st period I take my
