Personal Literacy Narrative Reading and writing is a tool everybody needs in their lifetime the basic reading and writing skills are used on a daily base no matter what field you plan to study. Reading and writing are taught at a young age. I personally was taught by preschool I noticed on how I grew with my writing and how I became a better reader and writer throughout my life I personal love reading and writing it’s a way for everyone to express themselves through their choice of words. Everybody learns how to read and write differently some students tend to be stronger than others, personally speaking I feel I tend to be higher in reading then writing. I learned how to read and write at my elementary school named Saint La Salle.
In English 112 I learned how to adequately dissect writing, and refer to it flowingly in my paper. Moreover entering ENG 111; I had not taking an English class following long time so to take this course I needed to truly recall high school to recollect what
With my current drafting process, I write my entire essay, read what I have written and add a little bit more if something comes to mind. I came into English, with very poor writing techniques. One of the reasons that probably caused me to not get full grades on essays in school is because my first draft is what I would submit, rather than reviewing and editing it to improve it. Something I take great pride in is my grammar and spelling. Although I sometimes
Through Dual Enrollment English, I have learned how to write a well thought out paper while managing my busy schedule and have learned many lessons along the way. Dual Enrollment English 111 began with a pretest and it crushed me. The letter grade is not what crushed me but the weaknesses of my writing that it exposed to me. I was not aware of how unprepared I had been in being able write top-notch papers within a time limit. I decided it would be my goal to practice and excel at writing papers with efficiency.
Another goal is to complete the homework and to turn it in early when possible. I also plan to read and understand each chapter in the college prep book titles “Power Learning” by Robert Feldman. These short term goals lead into my long term goals of passing the chapter tests, final, and the semester. My third period class is Spanish 2 taught by Brenda Altamirano. Spanish is a bit difficult because the language has different tenses and its own alphabet.
The English 1300 class has helped me to improve and develop my writing skills in several ways. Primarily this class has helped to reduce the stresses that I have always felt when a report or essay was asked for. Contributing and being involved in this class will have substantial influence in future English classes and all classes no matter what the subject. I have discovered that my previous classes in High School served only as minimal effort and upon entering college the rules have been amplified and are crucial to a timely completion of your classes and ultimately college. Feedback was critical and valued.
It inspired me to write creatively and express myself through what I love. Moving to Chelan was hard. Literacy was only an impact through school. My test grades still were not the best. I only read books that were required for an English class.
When I first started Dual English Comp I was narrow-minded and stubborn. This course opened up my mind to English but also taught me how to write a successful college essay. Before this course I had no idea which kind of punctuation to use or when to put a comma before but or and. When I look back on my first paper I wrote for English Comp I can definitely see a difference between my first piece of work and one of my last essays I wrote and how much I have improved. My initial goal when I first came into this class was to get an A no matter what.
The learning method was suggested by a teacher and it just stuck with me. I get this ability to put all my ideas into one place while it illustrates to me where my essay has the potential of going as well. Furthermore, stage two of my writing process is constructing an outline. In the past, outlines were an inconvenience to complete because high school writing classes I had to put in little effort. However, when I got to college and had to grow accustomed to developing ideas and writing papers each week outlines became an essential part of how I get to the end goal.
When I started school, I got to meet English-speaking Latinos who helped me immerse in this new culture. It was a challenge to memorize words in English; it was like starting to write with my left hand. Despite all of this, I always kept focused, and this helped me discover the real meaning of perseverance. When I started high school, I began as an English Language Development student, and earned high grades. My junior year, I petitioned to be switched to regular classes.
Unit 1 Activity 3: Throughout this course, I have been able to develop a wide variety of many different skills, from when I first attended St Louis I had a reasonable understanding of my reading and speaking skills, after reviewing the listening and speaking content and completing the assignments it has helped me improve so much not only in school but in my everyday life since the first day I attended St. Louis improving my skills and helping me to Avoid distractions, listening for the main idea and supporting details, Asking questions, and Visualizing. An example from the course is the Rick Mercer report on the issue of young voters that was shown in class, it was extremely effective in helping me correct my the previous listening skill errors I had made in past assignments, from encouraging the
Hello, I am Connor Love. I am writing this letter as a soon to be former student of Katy Leuschen 's "Waves of Change" writing 111 class. The first semester of my collegiate career has taught me many valuable lessons, from learning how to better succeed academically to how to deal with the flu without my mother. The lessons I have learned in writing class have not only helped my writing abilities grow, but also have helped me improve in other aspects of my life. During "Waves of Change" I learned how to revise my work, more importantly, that uncertainty during the writing process is normal, and revise my thinking.
Writing is a way of expressing one’s language into words in a visual form of a paper. Writing involves recalling words, forming sentences, and writing. Reading skills are important, but it is not everything that is needed to be literate. As to being able to properly communicate in writing is an essential part that goes with reading. Ever since I was going to school I was able to learn how to write.
This I feel is the reason I hated literacy until high school. In high school I was assigned to a Sarah Schuette, who was my case manager in the rescue room in high school. She is the reason I started loving to read and write. With her support and encouragement I was able to do any class in high school that I wanted, she made me take a writing class and a individualized reading class, which grew my love for reading and writing. I love to read books that I will learn from, I read a lot of books about horses as they are a big part of my life.
