Reflective Letter on MWA #1 I believe that the purpose of major writing assignment number one was to improve our interview skills and solidify our understanding of genre as used in the context of our class. For this writing assignment I created a Weebly website that is meant to teach the class about the most important genre used in the field of computer science. To successfully do this I first gave a brief description of what computer science entails and that what it does not, I then followed up the description with a few questions and answers from my interview while also describing my professor that I interviewed. Finally, I began writing about my genre—developmental collaborative writing on a whiteboard—and gave its purpose followed by a few links. These links lead to the descriptions of my genre’s audience, rhetorical factors, structure, and style of writing; with all of the information presented on my website there should be a good enough description of developmental collaborative writing to help my fellow classmates understand what it is.
During her undergrad journey in college, Susan had to take many writing classes, but those were not the only ones that required writing. She took many psychology classes and almost all of them required writing long papers in different subjects such as forensic, development, and abnormal psychology. Including as well as her Spanish courses, she had to write many papers and create power point presentations. She often had to use her writing skills to send formal emails to her professors asking them questions in a professional matter. Susan feels everyone is can excel more than they possible can and can be capable of improving their writing
Every student has their own writing process. Writing process ways is the student's way to have the best writing assignments and make who ever read it understand their main idea.

My goal is to improve writing at the English college level, so that I am able to communicate and write papers clearly for the college class 's requirement and for my future career. Writing is difficult for me because I am a deaf student at the TNCC College. ASL is different from English because it does not include articles, and words such as “is” and “be.” When I write, I have to learn to include all the words that I do not normally use in my native language. This makes it more challenging for me to express myself when writing a paper because the two languages do not match. In addition, I am in doubt about my Graphic Design major.
He was a professor for seven years in the Albuquerque high school and he also was the director of counseling at the University of Albuquerque. In the University of New Mexico he was the associate professor and later professor of English. Rudolfo retired and has emeritus status at the University of Albuquerque. Rudolfo started to write when he was in college, and after that his wife encouraged him to pursue a carrier on writing. When Bless Me Ultima was published, he decided to enter the English program at the University of New Mexico as a professor.
This artifact relates to the page "writing samples" and to English 12 because it is a wring sample that I wrote in my senior year of high school. According to Purdue Owl, a research paper is the culmination and final product of an involved process of research, critical thinking, source evaluation, organization, and composition.

Reading and Writing will help me further my college education, and it will help me get to my goal. After reading Stephen King's essay "Reading to Write" (72) it opened my eyes for writing. Although being a professional novelist isn't a goal I want to pursue in my life, writing is something I will need to learn how to do with good form. When it comes to the writing department, it's not one of my best skills. King says, "Good writing, teaches the learning writer about style, graceful narration, plot development, the creation of believable characters, and truth-telling" (73).
Throughout my years of writing in high school, I was focusing only on writing to fill the basic requirements to pass English. Over the time interval of the course WRI101, my writing completely transformed. Analytical thinking, balance, and flow were the focal skills taught in WRI101 by Dr. Daniel Fredrick. Through learning about what are considered to be the two most important skills in writing, content and style, I was capable of elevating my writing in a manner that distinguishes it from the typical college paper. From the beginning of the course, I was introduced to novel aspects of writing.
The Summer Bridge writing course was not like expected at all. I expected it to be a brief review of what we learned in high school and then we have the posttest. I was wrong in fact; it was not only a review of what we learned in high school but it was also introduction into what college writing classes would be like. This of course surprised me and I did have some difficulty in the beginning of the course, but overtime I became better day by day. Constant writing, proofreading and a little bit of constructive criticism is what I expected from this course.
You should also eat very healthy because a healthy body is a healthy mind, you will not be falling asleep in class. I know that high school didn’t really get me ready for college at all because I came here not being well set up. I learned that APEX really helps a lot people to be very success in college. I know that when I am note taking that I will use Cornell style and my own form of note taking. I know that outlining and main ideas of a lecture will help me when I will be review for a test.
Before this class, I perceived myself as a poor writer. When someone has never been taught the proper way to write a paper, you struggle through college SOC 300 (Dr. Stephen Adair) and hoped to get more out of SOC 478 (Dr. Fumilayo Showers) as you attend classes. I never thought about the process that it took to write any paper before these classes. However, these two professors have been very inspirational toward my writing. They have taught me that structuring your paper is the key element to good writing.
When I first began my journey in English Comp. I, I set a main goal of learning how to properly write essays for college. Even though each essay had its ups and downs, as a student, my experiences with all four essays have shown me the writer I truly am. My first essay was an ad analysis. In this essay I had to choose and observe a persuasive ad and explain how the company is attempting to sell a particular product in the ad.
