The comments from my instructor, the online material, my research, the online writing center and comments from other students in the discussion boards have helped me so much to improve my writing skills. In the writing process, the step that I feel I have improved a lot is editing, as I am constantly reading my writings and editing them as I finish them, over and over again before I publish them. The steps in the writing process that I like the most are finding a topic in the Pre-writing step and Drafting. I like having a lot of ideas floating around and think about which idea is the best and the most exciting topic to talk about.
Writing about this helped me learn multiple stuff, I think that this bunch of information I just learned today may someday help me in the future. When I reread this essay and I see all the information Ive written down it honestly makes me think of how important it is to respect yourself, Ive noticed this when I talked about how important it is to be different. I undoubtelly enjoyed reading Harrison Bergeron, because it woken up my perspectives on how good individuality can be, and that it 's okey to be
1. Pathos is a term which appeals to emotion. It convinces an audience by creating feelings that already reside in them. Pathos is presented in the opening of “ A New Perspective” written by Janice E. Fein when the narrator talks about going to kindergarten. She mentions how her mother “is walking me to kindergarten” which appeals to the audience since it brings up memories of how their mother or father must have walked them to kindergarten too.
Anecdotes are used effectively because the reader can see examples of how working hard can help them overcome barriers. It supports the claim with first hand evidence. The
I enjoyed reading this book primarily because of the vivid, descriptive writing style of the author. The verdure of storyline helps in development of reader’s curiosity as the eventful story proceeds. The characters are amusing and very synonymous to real life. With due course of time, the evolution in characters is the most interesting & exquisite aspect of the book, beautifully described by the author. The story ends just the way it should which; a positive happy ending is creating an excitingly effective impact over the reader.
Roberts has very good examples of how to make your papers more colorful. Using words such as, resourceful in place of smart, or engrossed instead of busy, are very good examples of a simple change that can make a big (difference) alteration in your essays. I have a very difficult time staying engaged in reading when the same, lifeless words keep popping up. Prior to reading Roberts essay, I would have (never) not in any way, used the colorful words described by Roberts, in my own essays. I am usually straight to the point, using simple wording from my everyday vocabulary.
Career Objective: My career objective is that I aspire to pursue a career that is exciting and dynamic where I can be a part of giving people positive experiences and memories.

Roberts claims “The writer builds with words, and no builder uses a raw material more slippery and elusive and treacherous.” There is no rule book. Some words are “colorful”. “They are dressy instead of plain, specific instead of general, loud instead of soft.” However, fancier does not mean better.
Another tool that I thought was helpful to me during my assignments was the synthesis matrix. The synthesis matrix is my favorite tool and I will continue to use this throughout the rest of my courses. It made comparing, contrasting, and combining different sources at one time very easy. It gave me a head start on the literature review and it made it come together more easily. It also made my major assignment, the research prospectus to seem less stressful than the actual literature review
The book did an amazing job at character reveal as well as character development. With some books, it takes a reader a while to become enticed by the characters or by the plot. With Wild Seed, it did not take long for many reasons. The first reason is because the book was well written which allowed for myself to follow along without zoning out. Secondly, the book was up my alley because of its genre.
It took time, to find the right format, research my questions on what the font or order of the content would be. It was interesting and fun to write a different type of writing style. I improved on Information Skills by that I learned what kind of sources professors/teachers love and what sources they dislike. I also learned that there is no harm in asking the teacher what kind of sources they suggest. This has proven to be helpful and decreased the amount of time I would have spent on researching for
It mentions how happy he was when he finally was able to understand a specific concept. I think this book would do wonders for a student struggling in that area. Also you could use a Venn digram to compare the characters: Richard and Emily, Richard and Drake, Ms. Rooney and Mrs. Paris. The characters in the book are defined very well and the students would benefit from analyzing them. The book could be used to discuss being friendly, kind, and promote no bullying.
