Reading History . I have always loved to read. Growing up I can remember my mom reading to me the same few picture books repetitively so I’d memorize the letter patterns. I remember the magical feeling when I started recognizing words. At first, I struggled with reading.
Grade eight and nine comprised of Computer Literacy classes, we were taught how to make use of Microsoft programmes. My journey through grade eight resulted in me putting extra effort with regards to my English subject, reason being the transition amongst doing English First Additional Language in primary and English Home language in high school caught up with me. However, the journey between grade nine and twelve had me excelling. At this stage, I was in the Van Huuysten’s Orators English team which assisted me with regards to writing effective speeches and being able to present
I also believe openness is importnat in everything. Next is engagement, this is “a sense of investment and involvement in learning.” In my papers I think I have shown involvement. In the rehtorical essay I spent a lot of time putting that together and enjoyed learning about that particular style of learning. Creativity is “the ability to use novel approaches for generating, investagating adn representing ideas.” This is what I lack in papers can sometimes put a creative intro in my paper but it is usually only when I love the topic. I also struggle putting authors together and creating a new idea and piecing them together.
As this program helped my partner practice English, it also helped me gain self-esteem and confidence to express myself openly about what my academic and personal challenges were to the people who know me best. [In the summer and fall 2016, I was able to excel in my classes again because I was enjoyed the classes that I took, in addition to the help that I received. During fall quarter of 2016, I began my first computer science class, and was thoroughly interested in the subject. Although it was disappointing to repeat my English course, my second English course had provided me a new perspective to achieve better grade than previously. Despite the fact that I had to repeat my second computer class in Spring 2017, I was quicker to learn, manage my time, and present all of my course work clearly to excel in the
Other people find themselves to love reading and writing as a child and they grow out of it, becoming more involved with sports and social outings. Whatever the feelings a person has about reading and writing as a whole and how it pertains to their life as an adult—reading and writing had some sort of impact on everybody at some point in their life. In my personal journey with reading and writing, I have learned to love the art even more every year. I began reading at the early age of three, I could read on an eighth-grade reading level when I was five. I was well above other students' academic levels, starting from early ages.
Such as underlining every passive sentence I could find. After I did the underlining I would go and fix the mistakes in my paper and then move on to another part of writing that needed fixing. I also consulted the Purdue Owl website for tips on how to integrate my sources in the paper so when I introduced or mentioned them, the sentence did not sound tacky. Before this paper I had not used the website, but I found it quite helpful when writing my paper, and very easy to go to instead of asking someone. The last new strategy that I tried was referring back to my readable plan, which helped me immensely when I forgot what strategy I was going to use for a section, or when I found a different strategy to use, it helped to look there to see the other strategies I had already used.
The book Enrique’s Journey by Sonia Nazario is a nonfiction book based on a real story told throughout 367 pages. The reason why I decided to read this book is that it was highly recommended by one of my former English teachers. I was extremely persuaded to read this book by her but I also personally believed that by reading this book I would gain a new understanding of life by really opening my mind to new experiences that other people go through. This journey begins in Honduras, a country in Central America, then continues into Mexico and finally in the United States where Enrique ends up living for the remaining of the story. The story definitely took place a couple decades ago when Enrique was younger.
Assignment Submitted By Yours Name here Submitted To Yours Instructor Name here To Meet the Needs of the Course Nov., 2015. Over my first year of college, I think I have truly built up my writing aptitudes. ENG 111 & 112 taught me better approaches to take a gander at writing, and added to my own writing style. In English 111 I learned how to utilize logos, ethos, and emotion all the more successfully in my papers to convey the group of onlookers to a radical new level in my paper. In English 112 I learned how to adequately dissect writing, and refer to it flowingly in my paper.
While self-accessing my overall performance in English 111, I would say I have done fairly well. I learned a lot about English and mostly about myself. I learned what I needed to work on and improve. Reflecting on my overall performance, I will start by explaining my participation in class, my performance in two areas, how I transitioned into the role of a college student during the semester, what process I used to be successful in English 111, and my overall skill development. This past semester has been a real challenge for me, as well as a huge eye opener.
I should have been opened up my eyes to reading and writing because I want to be a teacher, assistant. I always liked working with kids, and I will like to be a great assistant. Since there's no way to become a teacher assistant or even a teacher without having reading and writing skills, I will have to read and write more often. It is like King says "If you want to be a writer, you must do to things above all others: Read a lot and write a lot" (72, 73). If I want to be a teacher assistant or maybe a teacher one day I must ameliorate my reading and writing.
