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. In writing 121 I have faced many challenge and luckily with time I have over come them.
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. Realizing that college is more work and slightly harder I assumed the rules and standards would be much more regulated and rigid. 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. All actions and thoughts, which I have made in this course, give me a fresh result as the end of the semester is coming. 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. This will come in handy in the future because you won 't lose any important papers and you’ll also have a need and clean binder and backpack. memorize your new schedule, In middle school the most problem kids had had is transferring from one class to another, so this second tip will be very beneficial for you so you 're switching from between classes would be as smooth as possible. Third tip do not procrastinate ever what this is referring to is to not wait until the last moment to finish whatever homework is that you have because if you wait until the last minute your chances of getting a poor grade area pretty elevated.
When I started attending East Mountain I experienced an immense amount of reading assignments compared to a regular class, but it didn’t stop me from doing my best. 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.
When I began Writing 101, I was not familiar with much of the course material and my writing skills were not developed; through the assignments and learning resources, I have now developed the skill set to develop thesis statements and complete coherent essays. 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. To be honest I tried to avoid the class at first time, even though we have to do writing in other classes.
Since words are the base than I would struggle to even write multiple sentences without getting so upset. I became overcome with embarrassment to write stuff on the board because I lacked confidence in myself, since I could not spell. 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
