I loved learning how to write a narrative and procedural essay. My teacher explained how to complete a narrative, and procedural essay clearly. I would love to use some of her teaching methods someday. It 's an amazing feeling to be able to write about an experience that altered your life. If I teach English someday, I want my students to learn how to express themselves when they write.
What does writing mean to me? Writing means getting people engaged in your piece. It means people wanting to keep reading what you wrote. The biggest thing about writing to me is expressing your thoughts and letting your mind go. Using good word choice and having a strong voice in the writing is something that makes it good.
Allowing us to become a part of a world of so much emotion and as we grew up, we relied on these books to give some kind of relief and hope. Literacy is the ability to read and write and having knowledge or an ability in a more specific area. Literacy has been powerful throughout hard times. The Book Thief showed us how Liesel and other characters used their ability to read and write, to connect to each other. The allies begin bombing near Molching, the people on the block must take shelter.
Also, this shows how writing can lead authors to learn more about themselves. Revisiting an upsetting event brings all the pain back to the surface and helps the reader understand the writer’s mindset and how they became the unique writer they are
The comments from my instructor, the online material, my research, the online writing center and comments from other students in the discussion boards have helped me so much to improve my writing skills. In the writing process, the step that I feel I have improved a lot is editing, as I am constantly reading my writings and editing them as I finish them, over and over again before I publish them. The steps in the writing process that I like the most are finding a topic in the Pre-writing step and Drafting. I like having a lot of ideas floating around and think about which idea is the best and the most exciting topic to talk about. Drafting for me is pretty similar, as also my ideas are coming into my mind at no speed limit and I try to focus in one at the time, at that moment, I am not thinking about
By being so open to reading as a child I got into writing my own stories so in the future I could be able to evoke the feelings I felt when I read a captivating and beautifully written book. I want to create a book that will be a positive force in someone 's life. I enjoy the idea that I can thin kike this in this new age of technology where it is so easy to get out there and get feedback. I posted my writing online before and I got all these likes and reviews. Just seeing how people enjoy my writing and ideas and are willing to help me pushed me to write more for my fans.
I was not confident in my writing before, but now I am. Professor Karl taught me ways to incorporate new techniques into my writing, as well as following the proper rules required by the University. Furthermore, the textbook was a life saver, it reminded me of small details that I learned back in high school that are quite important when writing a paper. Subsequently, I will continue to practice my writing and incorporate everything that I learned throughout this course in the future. Learning never stops and I’m always open to learning new techniques that will help me become a better writer.
Where the Red Fern Grows. My favorite book of all time. I read it in the sixth grade, and I’ve never cried so hard in my life, aside from when I was born, nothing tops that. I was always eager to read that book during my english class and would even read ahead of the class, which was very
In High School, I got in a habit of skimming through reading material, and not taking the extra time to stop and check if I understood the material. I know that these weaknesses can bring a negative effect as a college freshman. One of my main weakness was understanding the material I read. I never was the person to challenge myself with a difficult reading material. I never took the time to stop and see if I understood the section.
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,
