This fall term I decided to take Dr. Jeff Harrison 's writing 121 class since it was required for my degree. Little did I know that it would drastically improve my righting and thought process. In Harrison 's writing class I have learned or improved my critical thinking, writing and reading skills. Well as enhancing my cultural awareness by helping me dig deeper into verbalizing my thoughts.
We all make mistakes, and most of the time we learn from them. From my Preliminary Writing Assignment to my Paper One, I have made numerous improvements in my writing but also many mistakes. Coming into College Writing One, I did not have papers to write to improve my skills in my upcoming years in college. Within the two papers I have written, I have expanded my word selection for more detailed paper, reduced fragments, and reorganized my thesis method for a better outcome. I came into this class thinking it was going to be just like high school.
The structure of coursework improved my writing skills. In one experience, my peer editing session explained that my childhood story showed a simple and clear writing style, but it wasn’t concise. This feedback forced me to evaluate my story and see in what ways it could be concise along with other writing tools that I incorporated. I realized from the experience that this was the first time I focused purely on improving my writing skills rather than understanding the course content. The course enabled me to confront my weaknesses in writing that I couldn’t in other academic classes.
College may be a whole year away and coming up quick so I feel that starting early by enrolling EN101 will give me a greater advantage. EN101 will overall make me a better student and improve my skills when it comes to writing papers.

Some problems I have faced while writing is making my papers perfect and as the syllabus says, "This class is designed to prepare you for academic writing, for the kinds of writing you will experience throughout your college career. " This class will improve my writing skills and put me where I need to be for future classes.
Anh T Vo Dr. Oxendine Engl 1301-81057 18 December, 2015 Reflection Before my English 1301 class started, I made a commitment for myself that I would get an A in this class. In order to achieve this goal, I make some short-term goals, try my best, and consider my behavior.

Being an ambitious student offers me opportunities to keep encourage myself study hard and believe that my effort will be paid off. Before this course started, I bought a required book.
This is a quality that you will not only need to survive middle school but life itself, so we better start sharpening those skills now don’t you think? First tip have your paperwork organized, by which I mean with every worksheet, brochure, handout, and permission slips you get you need momentarily place it in your binder and in the right subject category.

Although it was the most work I had done throughout my years of high school, the complexity of the class only challenged me to work harder and to read in between the lines. My intentions for next year are to work twice as hard and improve my reading, critical thinking, oral, and analytical skills in English 1102.
In week one of Writing 101, the class was introduced to the writing process for college level writing. We focused on reading and note taking strategies to help assist us with starting and finishing the writing process. We also learned how to identify and correct sentence fragments. Our first writing assignment was due in week
Writing is one of my many concerning in my PhD program. Every time when it comes to writing I feel nervous and stressed. I actually I used to love writing in my first language and I was good at it. Nevertheless, writing in English is another experience and quite difficult.
The confidence deficient distracted me from writing in yearbooks to group projects and avoided writing all together. These issues all started from my speech problem causing my writing to
This is currently my first year enrolling in Richland College, but the experience is just the beginning. The earliest memory of reading was all the syllabus that each class had before school started. I chose to be in college because I’m striving for a better future, instead of working at a retail store and less pay for all the work I’ve contributed. Being an expert reader can help me out in the long run because it helps me with comprehension and critical thinking when I encounter a real world problem. Now getting in idea of what we are doing in class, I think you are doing just fine helping me prepare for what is ahead of me
They should get up every day and treat school like it is a full time job. Finally, last but not least study, study, and study. Studying is a major thing students need to do in order to have any success in college. They should make a certain time every day that they study.
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.
If I were the person that I used to be back in high school, or even directly after high school, I would fail these classes with straight “F”s.
