How to write the thesis for my papers was essential because it provides the main argument that the reader recognizes. The formula subject then claim and then organization provided a way to write my thesis with
There aren’t any specific order or steps for a writing papers, but rather what works best for you to get the job done. My writing process consists of pre-writing/ideas, first draft, second draft/revising, editing/proofreading, and finally my final draft. To be honest, when I was growing up English was my favorite subject in school. I always felt I had so much to say and expressing it on paper was way easier for me verses speaking in front of people. In grade school, I was taught the bubble web prewriting process.
Rhetorical questions impact me as a reader by, engaging me into the text and also by making me think about what is being talked about in the book. Rhetorical questions impact the reading experience by bringing in new ideas and thoughts to the book, and makes you ask yourself the questions that being asked.

Elie Wiesel is is trying to impact the reader and the reading experience by adding an emphasis on how what is happening doesn’t matter anymore, because they are going to end up dying anyways, whether that is in 20 years, or in 20 days; at the concentration camp or at their house.

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.
The feedback was super effective and I was able to add information and finesse to my essay that I had never even thought of using before. I took the feedback seriously and took all thoughts from my reviewer into consideration and used them to better my essay. The only regret that I have is not getting more peer revisers. In the writing workshop, I participated as just a class mate as my essay was not being reviewed and I was not a facilitator. I treated the writing workshop as a peer review for myself as I took peoples thoughts and suggestions into consideration and applied it to my own
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. I know that these weaknesses can bring a negative effect as a college freshman. One of my main weakness was understanding the material I read. I never was the person to challenge myself with a difficult reading material. I never took the time to stop and see if I understood the section.
As a College freshman in his second semester, I have learned to deal with the challenges that I have to deal with peaceful, yet exhilarating moment when my mind engages with an author’s thoughts on a page. As John Dewey states “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” What Dewey insists is from my early days in high school to my first year in college as a freshman, I wanted to know the full concept of English; however, I have now realized this subject would fill in my void of English with noteworthy complexities. This was not the case for most of my second semester in Montgomery College; I always had trouble in various parts of the subject, such as development in thesis statement, sentence writing and reflecting on previous essays. Writing a thesis statement had been one of my down falls in English. It was challenging to take the first steps past high school in making up a thesis for a paragraph, but a thesis statement for an essay up two pages is a different case.
Through the past two semesters, I have learned a great deal about my writing skills. Before this class, the truly only wrote; filling my papers with the opinions I held myself. “Just writing” was my only option because that was all I had been taught. However, ever since I had attended GSW-1110 and GSW-1120, I have learned to adopt the formal writing style. Through the past two semesters, I have obtained many skills that will be useful to further my educational career, but there are skills that I, nevertheless, must improve on.
Author E.M. Forster once said, “How do I know what I think until I see what I say?”(Forster). Academic writing has the ability to reveal the students inscribed thoughts and opinions in ways that may surprise even them. The better get at writing analytically, the easier it is for them to apply those skills to other aspects of their life. People who write in journals often find it a useful form of exploring self-awareness (Ribeiro 2015). By writing down student ideas and perspectives in essays, even in non-academic disciplines, they hone their own expression skills, identify patterns, observed events and consider possible solutions.
Many students of all ages have issues with writing, the only way to get better at writing is to have experience. I never paid much attention to my writing skills while in high school, I simply did not care about writing. This year as a freshman in college, I have struggled with writing this semester in GSW 1100. Even though I have not been passing papers, I understand that writing in college is extremely important to learn and develop. This is important because most courses in college have writing in them.
My artifact is about a book I read called Fahrenheit 451 and We had to pick a theme or character to talk about and analyze their changes throughout the book. What I learned through the essay is that you need to revise your work all the time to catch your mistake and you have to be patient to find these mistakes. The main idea in my essay was to show Montag change of talking about books throughout many event that captured Montag to change his feeling towards books. It shows that people can change throughout time when they have motivation and help with them. We were assigned this artifact because the way how the book progress and the message in the book stating that we are paying attention more to media then books.
While writing the unit 3 paper, I got to practice and meet the course objective of actively reading. While reading the assigned articles, Begley and Heilbroner, I left comments in the margins as well as underlining quotes that stuck out to me that I could potentially use in my essay. Another objective that I struggled with is the idea of properly combining my ideas with the ideas of others. I understand that doing this can make your paper stronger. It can help open more doors and help you go someplace in your paper you didn’t think you could go.
Having students fully engaged with a text to achieve meaningful learning requires some components be put in place. The text must be on their appropriate instructional reading level, so as not to frustrate them. The students must have the skills to read and then critically analyze the content. To do this, students must usually have scaffolded instruction on how to analyze a text, for example how to make inferences or connect a topic to its real word application. Students also must have the opportunity to discuss with others the text to deepen their understanding by using others points of view to help deepen their own understanding.
