Additionally, I would say that my essay 's quality is poor because of the lack of analysis, the lack of organization, and the grammatical errors. The examples that I have mentioned are what I believe I need to improve on the most because it has been occurring throughout most of my writing. However, in this essay, the textual evidence and examples are what I think I did well
He often felt under pressure to write the perfect sentence with the perfect words and phrases making his writing unsuccessful in his teachers eyes. Now as a teacher himself he finds his students struggling to put words on paper and express themselves. He blames the educational system for his students inability to write with their own style and voice. Ballenger stresses the ability to write is more about the topic and the student’s interest in the essay than the grammar and structure of the essays. He finds that other professors view their students essays as badly written with sloppy writing, yet Ballenger focuses on the writing that his students do well.
Every letter he reads has some mistake. Letters from students, businessmen, executives, secretaries and even teachers all have misspellings. Furthermore, people are too lazy to look up a word they do not know how to spell. It is a simple step to take, but people are not completing it. That’s the saddest part about the Americans’ disability to spell.
My process is a far cry from normal. While writing essays, I get as much information down on paper then organize the information into paragraphs. Once that is done, I tend to write the story over in a few different forms then keep my favorite one. Although this process may sound strange, it works for me especially when I am in my writing environment. Adjusting my writing environment would be quite troublesome due to the fact that I dislike writing in front of people or in busy, crowded places because I am easily distracted.
Comma splices were one of the major grammar problems that I had struggled with in the past. A comma splice brings two independent clauses together, creating a run on sentence. An example of how I misused a comma is; “Coming from a small school the teachers had the materials but did not see it important enough to teach they were more worried about other things.” Once I found my mistakes, I went back and added a comma after school, a period after teach and started a new sentence with the word “They”. Having strong sentences in my story was another problem that I struggled with. When writing an essay,
One out of the three weaknesses is organizing ideas. Whenever I am caught up in the moment, I tend to lose track of organization in Writing. The second weakness is not being specific about my topic enough for the readers to understand what my paper is mostly about. My third and final weakness in English is punctuation. Every time I type or write, I tend to miss out most of the punctuation in my paper.
It was like the author was trying too hard for this book to be fun and light and cute... but it just seemed silly and poorly written. I hate saying things like this, but when it becomes that big of an issue for me I have to point it out. Also, all of Braswell 's characters, both the old and the new, had one major flaw: lack of characterization. It 's as if Braswell expected the reader to use and be satisfied with prior knowledge. I was not satisfied.
Christopher has little things that bother him and that he doesn 't understand or like, he even gets offended by things that wouldn 't offend the average person. For example , “ I got Siobhan to draw lots of these faces and then write down next to them exactly what they meant. I kept the piece of paper in my pocket and took it out when I didn 't understand what someone was saying. But it was very difficult to decide which of the diagrams was most like the face they were making because people 's faces move very quickly. When I told Siobhan that I was doing this, she got out a pencil and another piece of paper and said it
These papers were papers like visual and rhetorical analysis. My weakness and strengths in writing aren’t quite many. I have always had problems with my grammar skills. Also I have an extremely horrible habit of having a lot of comma splices like you discussed today in class. Sometimes I don’t understand how I make these mistakes when I actually
