One out of the three weaknesses is organizing ideas. Whenever I am caught up in the moment, I tend to lose track of organization in Writing. The second weakness is not being specific about my topic enough for the readers to understand what my paper is mostly about. My third and final weakness in English is punctuation. Every time I type or write, I tend to miss out most of the punctuation in my paper.
Additionally, I would say that my essay 's quality is poor because of the lack of analysis, the lack of organization, and the grammatical errors. The examples that I have mentioned are what I believe I need to improve on the most because it has been occurring throughout most of my writing. However, in this essay, the textual evidence and examples are what I think I did well
Looking Back Looking back through my papers that I have written for Dual Comp. English III, I realized that I struggled greatly with the use of transition words. I had always used the same few in my papers for other classes and did not understand their importance. I learned that transition words can make a paper really good if used correctly, or really bad if they are non-existent. While writing for Dual Comp.
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 and I often found it to be dull and like a chore.
My experience in English 1010 was great. My writing skills were very poor at the beginning of the semester. I did not know how to write correct sentence structure. I had great difficulties making my sentences flow smoothly and clearly. I was not able to edit a paragraph for mistakes in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
Nevertheless, I am proud of how the paper turned out. One of the assignments I am proud of is a mini essay about how to write an argumentative paper. The point of the assignment was to show that I know the steps to writing an argumentative paper. I feel like I clearly outlined all of the steps necessary. However, I could have improved the essay by not addressing the reader.
Focus 2 Assignment – Reflection Upon completing the Focus 2 career assessment program, I am quite impressed at the quality of information it presents. It allowed me to not only look at careers that would fit my personality, but also those that take into consideration the fields I am already interested in. Also, as with any form of self-assessment, there were strengths and weaknesses that I did not expect based on how I feel I live my life currently. Beginning chronologically, the program had me complete two subjective, current measures of my professional career. Specifically, the Career Planning Readiness results were a bit embarrassing, given I have not done much to investigate the career I foresee as much as I should.
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
In term of organization and coherence, as Ha commented I also believe that I managed to keep a good flow of idea and to keep all my ideas on topic. Normally, writing an essay of this length ( 1000-1500 words), I would unconsciously go off topic resulting in a misleading essay. Therefore, Ha’s confirmation of my coherence is really satisfying. Nevertheless, as Ha mentioned in her analysis, my use of linking words is mechanically and repetitive. This may be cause by my inflexibility in words choice and lack of time to carefully examine my essay since I started working on the essay quite late.
Another one of my biggest weaknesses as a writer is my usage of Punctuation and Capitalization; therefore, there were a couple of times where I did not capitalize the names of particular people, or the names of particular places. Although paragraph unity and punctuation are two of my foremost weaknesses, my biggest weakness out of them all is my comma usage. There were multiple occasions in my paper where I placed a comma and it was not necessary; on the other hand, there were also multiple instances in my paper where my usage of commas was completely absent. Although I have many strengths and many weaknesses as a writer there are always different devices I can use to improve both my strengths and my weaknesses. Through the usage of these different devices such as Paper Rater and Online Dictionary I anticipate to continue my growth as a college level
I was a bit brought down because I didn’t get my interview. Fortunately I was still able to do a survey and get the perfect amount of results. I feel like my paper is very powerful. I tried to improve my word choice and language so that I wouldn’t get a lower grade like we discussed. Also in general I am just really exited for this topic.
There comes a time in everyone 's life when a fake doctors note is very appropriate. I am sure that you 've used a fake note to get out of school assignments or work. Believe me, composing a note takes a bit of strategy. However, most people simply sit down and start writing something that sounds like it might have been composed by a real doctor. Often, the excuses they write are very lame.
Amongst my writings, three major flaws stood out. The three major problems in my writing were my inability to cite my sources correctly, my poor use of vocabulary, and my constant use of run-on sentences. These three problems showed up repeatedly in my papers. With the help of my teacher, I have been able to learn from my mistakes. I can now take my new skills into future papers to prepare for college.
2. Two Weaknesses In My Writing : A weakness in my writing piece is that I put too much information. In paragraph one I put two sentences that were unnecessary because they did not have anything to do with the setting. I need to make my statements specific to question and not adding what is unnecessary. Another weakness in my writing piece is that I need to edit more.
My schooling and upbringing have reinforced the importance of honestly and integrity. This year, in AP Research, we spent a number of classes discussing plagiarism and how to avoid it — some students, in paraphrasing the ideas of others and forgetting to cite correcting, have accidentally committed the act of plagiarism. As a result, I have learned the importance of citing correctly. I have also learnt how to clearly distinguish to readers what points were products of my own thinking, and what ideas were created and presented by others. Putting in countless citations is laborious and tedious, but ultimately worth the effort: plagiarism should be avoided at all costs.
