One last challenge I overcame was the expectations I had for this class. Walking into this class, I assumed that it would be an easy A in, however, this became the only class I am struggling to get an A in. I was challenged with thought-provoking class assignments, and demanding essay choices. While being challenged with the material we covered in this class, I also acquired high expectation of myself and my writing. I aimed to improve my writing and I believe I have taken great strides in doing so.
To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.

Basically, he was explaining to me that my paper was well written, but there were a few grammatical errors that I could change to make it a little better, the usual. For some odd reason, I decided to actually read my paper because, in the heat of the moment with an hour to write, I really had no clue what I had actually written. As I was reading my paper, I realized the way I talked about how I felt different seemed very familiar to me. A couple days passed and I kept racking my brain because for the life of me, I could not think of why my paper sounded so familiar. It was Thursday, I was sitting at the lunch table eating the garbage my cafeteria tried to pass off as food, a chicken breast that tasted too much like cardboard, peas that were entirely too mushy, and a roll that could have broken a window if thrown hard enough.
Being in English 101 has impacted three different types of writing processes: drafting, revising, and editing. Before I started this class, I never made drafts; I only did pre-writes and the final copy of the essay. Now, I do the pre-writes, then type it and make the draft, and then fix any errors in it. Another writing process that has improved is revising because now instead of reading what I wrote myself, I let my friends, classmates, and teachers read it to see if they understand what I’m writing and if they see any errors. This makes my editing process easier because I know what mistakes I made.
Throughout High School, I learned that reading and writing at some points can be a challenge to me. One of my problems is going off topic when I write essays. I had problems identifying the main points to write about when reading the prompt. Another challenge I have is reading and understanding the main idea of the section I read. In High School, I got in a habit of skimming through reading material, and not taking the extra time to stop and check if I understood the material.
This gets the ideas flowing in my head, however I usually forget them unless I write them down. The second step is to research. Most of the essays I have been required to write this year do not require me to research anything. However, the few I had to do research for I used
Reflection Paper As a writer, I feel like I really grew a lot in this past semester. I developed some specific writing strategies and techniques. Now before writing a paper, I take the time to think about it instead of just jumping into it. I will set time aside to pre-write and use writing techniques like freewriting and revising. I have learned that it is easier to begin writing the paper a week before instead of the night before.
Hi Mrs.Brown, I hope all is well back at home and school. I wanted to go back and say thank you for everything that you have taught me in writing.

You and your class has really taught me how to write more proficiently.
When I signed up to take English Comp 1, I thought this was going to be a simple class. I assumed because I enjoyed reading and writing I would pass this class with an easy “A”. I was completely wrong. I learned my writing wasn’t as good as I thought and that I had a lot to learn about how I translate my thoughts and opinions into writing. Taking this course has helped me mold my writing skills in the proper way that is vital for achieving my future goals.
As a writer I still have a lot to work on to become the best possible writer I can be. The skills I need to work on enable to become a better writer are punctuation, grammar, vocabulary, imagination and process. If I can improve my areas on weakness I will only be bettering myself. To improve these skills I can read different types of literally works from magazines to novels to improve my skills. Also reading an assortment of writing will widen knowledge on the different formats people choose to write in.
That 's why I want procrastinate less so I can get more things done and I 'll have time to do things outside of school.

Even though I do this, I fail to focus and do it enough times where I can ace my tests. By extending my
My Learning Summary What I Have Learned About Writing Notably, during this semester, I have learned about the importance of the first word of a paragraph and the last words. While looking back at my older essays I noticed in my first essay I wrote for this class, Giving Opportunity, I began my first paragraph with “during”. If I were to re-write that essay, keeping in mind the importance of the first word, I would begin my essay with “traveling”. Another lesson I have learned is that good writing does not include extreme words such as “every time” or “never”. When I replace those words I actually capture the reality better.
They have taught me that structuring your paper is the key element to good writing. Somehow, I have learned a great deal last semester, which was difficult but I will be able to put towards me up and coming writing intensive courses. The readings throughout those two classes have helped me to understand the dos and
