For this week I have been using Zotero to organize and look up useful academic journals to use for my three new citations. Combined with Zotero, I have also been using Ebsco to help find some interesting topics related to the setting that I wanted to focus my points on. Zotero’s feature of allowing me to save the PDF and bookmarking useful articles was really convenient and saved me a lot of time. Zotero’s feature of creating bibliographies also saved me quite some time, as it allowed me to go straight to the annotations for my readings. Everything went smoothly and efficiently with the combination of Ebsco and Zotero together.
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
Throughout the entire semester, I have written essays that have been edited many times and reviewed by my instructor. My writing has grown stronger through each paper because I have been able to expand my knowledge of writing and the skills that I have to use. The portfolio that I am putting together should be a clearly passing portfolio. My writing skills have developed to make me the strong writer that I am today and to prepare me for my writing in the future. In many of my papers I used great research techniques like, BGSU Summon and Google Scholar to find my sources and the information that I was going to use in my papers.
I’m glad I went because I learned more about these schools then I would have had I gone online. I talked in person with consolers who were able to answer specific questions I had regarding my major. I liked the transfer fair because it was at a convenient time for me and was laid-back. I could take my time learning about each school with no rush. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about transferring.
Bridger Haffey Narrative for US101 Throughout the course of this class I have come to realize that involvement and participation is essential to my success in this course. Not only is participation a large amount of my grade, but it is also a means to understanding the material that we discuss in class. Personally, I learn best when I ask questions and get involved in finding connections between themes and ideas. This is not only true for discussion, but also for classes like calculus where it is very easy to fall behind unless I am fully engaged. I think it is very important to go about discussion with an open mindset, always looking for different arguments, and always thinking about how the topic applies to me at that moment in time.
This paper has discussed my personal writing process which includes brainstorming, constructing a rough draft, revising, and creating a final draft. Depending on the required length of the paper, I try to set aside enough time to complete this writing process comfortably with minimal stress. This time allotment can be anywhere from thirty minutes every day for two or three days to an hour per day for more than a week. I use this process in nearly all forms of writing; it is an incredibly versatile, flexible process due to its simplicity and practicality. Writing is an enjoyable activity for me due to the fact that it allows for so much individuality and creativity; therefore, it rarely generates anxiety or boredom in my life, rather, it is more of an agreeable pass-time.
I was fully absorbed in it, because it was something that anyone could apply to thier own situation. These kinds of writings always grab my attention, because I always try to learn something from books that can be applied to my life and play a part in making it better for myself and for others. In spite of my personal bias towards judging the text, I think that this piece was the easiest to follow and to understand. The objective of writing was clearly portrayed by Edwards in his examples and illustrations. Also, the language used was quite similar to present day English, hence it was much easier to understand and absorb the concepts.
Simply by looking at what was successful in the past, it becomes easier to develop assessments that are flexible to all learning styles. This skill of metacognition can be used in everyday life, specifically when connecting it the course theme of consciousness and awareness. The respectable judge Antonin
The student chose the dressings correctly and explained the reasons why she selected those dressings with the evidence that I portrayed in my presentation. I was happy that she integrated the theory really well into that practice activity. Simulation for me was an important way to learn a skill when I was training and I believe it showed how theory could be integrated into practice. As discussed by Hope. A, Garside.
Some of the significant changes I have made as I was progressing and growing were to develop a strong thesis to help support my claims as I write my essays, such as facts, observations, illustration, and examples. There are other areas in my writing that I have improved on. I have improved on my grammar, verb constructions, use of verb tenses and organizational skills to make my writing flow better when reading. My overall progress in completing this ten weeks course was wonderful. Every steps and skills I learned in this English class will help me to improve on my writing skills in my other classes and will also help me in my future
The reading strategies we discussed in class and in the courses content made me a better reader by showing me many different ways to read and write and understand it very well. It uses all these methods such as the KWL charts, writing a memo and reading the novel I selected helping me improve my skills greatly to become a better reader. Putting together the reading, writing oral communication and examining media all connected in helping me become a good reader and helped me to comprehend the understanding of making a personal connection to the world around you. That 's what help 's you in the future to make the the best choices possible so that later on when you make a mistake in reading you can look at the experience you had and learn how to properly correct yourself because at the end of the day they all deal with different skill set 's but all help you to become better in everything you
