So I started ready heavier books, like the Harry Potter series. I realized that books gave me a chance to visit a different world. One that didn’t have wars or world issues like the ones in reality. By seventh grade, I loved English class. The teacher, the assignments, the environment; everything made it enjoyable.
My feelings toward writing aren 't good nor bad. Writing is something i have had difficulty with in my past. I have no problem brainstorming ideas on what topics to write my assignments on, even if i am given a prompt, but I do have difficulty with sitting down and planning my work.

These STEM programs require intense courses that seem more important to students than a first-year composition requirement is especially if they want to graduate in four years. In addition, university professors David Kaufer and Richard Young state their agreement in “Theory and Practice in the Teaching of Writing: Rethinking the Discipline,” when discussing enrollment in a first-year course makes no difference when they argue, “pretty much the same [language] skills of writing will develop no matter what content is chosen” (80). However, the development of skills the WPA addressed at an earlier stage such as a first-year composition course is more beneficial. Students have more time to enhance their skills, gain new ones, and students in a first-year composition course continuously work on said skills rather than their usage being on and
Why is writing important? Writing is an important skill to learn and enhance. Writing allows a person to be able to express their thoughts and ideas on to a piece of paper.

Why Comp I is So Valuable I believe that there are several reasons why Composition I is a valuable course for college students to take. Some of the reasons Comp I is so valuable are 1) it improves your writing skills, 2) it teaches us the different types of writing, and most importantly 3) it teaches us to manage our time wisely and effectively. Without the course Comp I, I believe that students wouldn’t be prepared or as prepared to take on the real world. Writing skills are something that most people don’t just have.
On days where I couldn't write with a pencil and paper, I would type notes in class instead. There was always an alternative that made it possible for me to accomplish the goals I
Writing scared me in high school. The idea of writing a 10 page research paper, or a 6 page opinion essay terrified me. My fear of writing was created by the success I achieved in other subjects in school. Throughout my adolescence, I became accustomed to
Before taking writing skills two I 've had a positive mindset towards writing because I see it as a way to express my thoughts. For example, whenever I feel a bit melancholy writing a short story or just free writing always makes me feel a bit better. On the other hand, I don’t believe I’m the best writer because like every other student I make mistakes in my writing. Although, I don’t take the editing negatively I always look back at my past essay and try to reflect on them to see how I can always improve my writing skills. Overall, I have a pretty good mindset towards writing even though I have my mistakes I know if I study harder I can become a better writer over time.
Writing can help you in life through ways you never thought possible. Once you find out the importance of writing it might make you think twice about learning good writing skills. Knowing how to write well is a crucial skill to have, and I hope that everyone can take the time to learn some. Writing, in my opinion can be very therapeutic.
Thank you for giving me this chance to talk about my English class, it was very excited to be a part of English 101 this quarter. We act as a family in this class by helping each other in writing, discussions stories and responding to each other. To be honest, I worked very hard this quarter and I focused more on my English class rather than other classes I had taken in SFCC. Writing is something not easy when it comes to my mind, because I am an international student and it is a differencet from my writing style and English writing style, so I should separate between them. I would not say writing English assignment is very hard for me, but I mean I make some mistakes. We wrote four paper assignments this quarter, two of them about the story we read in class, one from a story and outside material and one about English 101 class at itself which is this paper. We must submit the rough draft before the due date of the assignment, which helps us to have clarification from our instructor and from a classmate. I am always improving after each paper I wrote, because I follow up with the comment I received, edit my paper then make an appointment with my instructor before I submit my final draft. These comments make me feel confident in the next paper. Writing in something that you can improve your knowledge and the way of thinking, comparing to my papers, I will discuss how I developed revisions strategies, learned proper citation, and how pre-writing can help improve my writing.
