Constant writing, proofreading and a little bit of constructive criticism is what I expected from this course. Upon entering the course my expectations were surpassed, Dr. PHP was not an easy teacher but she was an effective teacher. Her lessons and explanations in class worked well for me especially in my writing. Giving us handouts dealing with grammatical errors like comma splices and giving us examples in class of how an outline should be written really helped out a lot.

In particular, I have always enjoyed writing, and would love to explore a new style, since journalism is unique in the way that it is unlike most analytical or creative writing we practice in English classes. Not only would I love to join a community and work with others who have similar interests as me, but reporting is also a way to learn more about the diverse group of people at the high school, each with their own talents and opinions, which I would approach from a new perspective--that of a journalist. As a typically quiet and reserved person, I would enjoy having the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone, meet and interact with new individuals who surround me.
