My weakness are in the organization of my information and my style of writing. My first strength is content. While writing a paper, finding good text evidence is extremely important.

This type of article provides to the audience’s intellect and is able to provide the reader with facts and data. On the other hand, subjectivity is the contrast of objectivity. Subjectivity means to have a judgment, bias, or prejudice towards a subject. This type of reading can mainly appeal to reader emotions. Anyway, both of these methods of writing can change
This gives me a jump start, or flow of ideas that can later on benefit my paper. In the article, Writing What Matters: A Students’ Struggle to Bridge the Academic/Personal Divide Emily Strasser uses the following sentence to highlight and pinpoint the real true value of writing “Writing can and should be much more than sophisticated sentence structure and nuanced word choices. The devices of grammar and rhetoric remain superficial skills until a writer employs them to express important and powerful feelings, thoughts and ideas” (WaW Pg.200). I enjoy writing about myself because it helps me express my feelings. A paper may include correct grammar and word-context, but until the writer can intertwine powerful thoughts and feelings into the work, the writer is unable to accomplish the overall intended goal.
I like to deeply think about the book and understand it better. I learned about how to write a detailed reflection after critically analysing the book.

I was able to use critical thinking skills in a variety of ways when I used questioning, researching, analyzing, and evaluating to create a piece of work. Also, I was able to analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and apply information from a variety of sources when I researched on my topic to write an essay and then complete a lesson activity relating to my piece of writing. Additionally, I was able to think metacognitively to become more aware of my own learning processes when I progressed toward the completion of a task by following a series of steps. Likewise, I learned how observing my writing through time can be very effective towards my writing process. Most important, the assignment taught me how having all essential aspects of writing, such as purpose, audience, genre, tone, sentence variety, sentence structure, and word choice in my works can improve my writing as well as a convey a better image of the paper.
I tried to take thorough notes and ask questions when I struggled. I have learned to analyze everything I read in a beneficial way that helps me grasp the story and see it’s full meaning. I mentally ask myself questions while reading and try to find every perspective. Furthermore, I learned multiple crucial life lessons that will benefit me as I mature. For example, “Less is more”(Jane Sullivan).
While writing the unit 3 paper, I got to practice and meet the course objective of actively reading. While reading the assigned articles, Begley and Heilbroner, I left comments in the margins as well as underlining quotes that stuck out to me that I could potentially use in my essay. Another objective that I struggled with is the idea of properly combining my ideas with the ideas of others. I understand that doing this can make your paper stronger. It can help open more doors and help you go someplace in your paper you didn’t think you could go.

Some of the suggestions that I was given were to properly cite the author when I am quoting him/her, I had wrote “I prefer the term scavenging and use the word scourging when I mean to be obscure”. This is how I wrote it on the rough draft, I fixed it for the final by adding (Eighner, 114). Another example of work I had fixed was I had a lot of punctuation errors, an example of this was
