It will take time to adjust if teachers allow students to use their phones for class work, but I doubt that it will take a long time for it to be adjusted to considering the fact that a lot of students are on their phones all the time when they get out of school.

I did not understand the purpose of the essay so I wrote about what I thought altering public space meant. After reading the assigned reading I still did not understand what was being asked of me and this is where I should have emailed my instructor for clarity rather than guessing. If I would have had a better understanding on the assignment rather than going into the assignment guessing if I was doing it correctly I would have gotten a better score than I got. There was some misuse of commas and even commas splices included in the essay. In previous course and now I do not know how to correctly use commas I did not really understand the concept whenever my
I came into this class thinking it was going to be just like high school. Unfortunately, College Writing One is far more complicated than high school.
