As my freshman year of college comes to a close, I reflect on my two English courses this year. I have learned a lot these last two semester in my english 101 and 102 classes. English 101 focused a lot on different types of papers, while English 102 focused mainly on taking what we learned from a reading and analysing and interpreting of stories and poems we read. Looking back at my high school English days, I believe I had made major improvements in my writing abilities between these two semesters.
With the winter semester ending, I have been reflecting about my writing English 101 class. In this Semester I studied and learned to write professionally after performing many tasks and assignments. Through basic writing errors, analytical moves, developing paragraphs, introduction and conclusion, I was able to learn to write correctly and even different from what I had written before. For example, in the old days I used to make a sentence by typing: I see it, or I say so, but now I can write without repeating the word I.
As I look back on my English 101 experience, I have come to the conclusion that I have learned many new things that have improved my abilities as a writer. I have learned some new techniques that have improved my ways of approaching an essay. I learned all about
The beginning of my junior year seems like it was such a long time ago. This may be because of how much I have grown since the start of the year. When I began AP English, my writing skills needed improvement. For instance, I often used incorrect grammar and struggled with staying on topic. In just one semester, my writing has improved immensely. The more than I write, the more I learn about how to craft a good paper. I have worked on improving my grammar, using rhetoric, addressing my subject, and many more elements of writing. In addition to improving my writing, I have gained many skills to become a better student. I have learned about effective study techniques and time-management skills that allow me to be the most successful. Since I always try my best, I know that over time I will continue to grow in my studies. This year I have gained countless skills that will help me succeed in English in the future.
Over the course of this semester, my confidence in writing has improved greatly. In high school, I didn’t really know how to write effectively. I wasn’t really sure what was considered to be “good writing” until I took AP* English. However, even while I was taking this “Advanced Placement” class, I was still trying to figure out how to really create “good writing”. I feel as if this had something to do with the fact that I never really had to work with the rules of grammar intensively. After taking this course, however, I now have a much better understanding of how to correctly use proper grammar. I also improved on using transitional phrases in my writing. I have implemented my understanding of proper grammar and transitional phrases in both my writing inside and outside of this class as a result.
I took advanced English classes in high school so I did not think college should be any different. I have the desire to take on all the challenges English 10 has to offer. My writing process seems long, but I find it to be quite effective. I tend to take a while to fix my first draft and I despise waiting to write a paper the last minute. I would rather take my time and turn in a paper that I know I tried my best on than turn in writing that is sloppy because I rushed to write it. I love the feeling of knowing that my writing is at it’s fullest potential. My writing process takes some time due to the grammar, format and structure checks. I typically enjoy writing however, it depends on what the topic is and how motivated I am at the time. The majority of my past writing experiences have been beneficial. I do not recall any distressing experiences. My most influential experiences were in my Senior year because I had an astounding English teacher that taught me an abount amount of writing skills. That teacher is the reason why I am comfortable with my writing to an
English has never been my favorite subject in school. My family has always considered me to be talkative and very social. Therefore, it left all of us, including my teacher, quite in the dark when trying to figure out why I was doing poorly in my fifth grade English class. My teacher’s name was Ms. Johnson, and she was a very high spirited woman. She would always encourage me to simply express myself in my writing.
Reflection My writing skills which I have worked on over the few months I have been in English 102 have changed quite a bit in my opinion. There are many things which I have improved upon that were amongst my weaker writing skills when the year began. On the opposite side of that point, there are also many things which I still need to improve upon if I want to truly elevate my writing to a level that I will be confident in. Finally, I have gained new skills outside of writing from this class, particularly the activities which we did in class at various points throughout the year. These things all cumulate together to give me an appreciation of English courses which I did not previously have.
Yes, I agree that if I take my classroom as an example.I think the size of my classroom is regulated by the Constitution because it is according to the number of students the teacher can give classes. For this reason, I believe that there are rules in the Constitution that speak of that since if there are more students than the teacher can teach, other students will not hear anything and they will not pay attention, and as a result of the situation, they will not learn anything at all. I also think that each country has its rules of study and therefore each state is regulated with a different educational system. I mean that with this there are different skills and methods of teaching and learning according to the adaptation of each
A blank page. All writing begins with a white sheet of unnamed possibilities. And yet with skills, knowledge, and ideas, a blank page can morph into something magical. Shakespeare did not simply stumble upon Romeo and Juliet. Instead, he had to use his heart, mind, and pen to produce his
After looking back at all the writing I have accomplished in this class and experiences I have faced in other English classes, I realized how they have affected me as a writer and where I stand as one as of now. The writer I am today has been greatly benefited
Most Memorable Writing Experience: My Reflection on Writing I have been writing since I have been in Middle School. I have realized that by college it was easier for me to write down my thoughts in order for me to remember what I have said or done. Writing out my thoughts
My first day of 8th grade year, Mrs. Tucker showed me that her English class would serve as a rewarding and knowledgeable course. Indeed, it did. By the third week of school I was writing five hundred word essays, studying and reading diverse novels, and enhancing my vocabulary and writing skills. I owe my growth and refinement in English to Mrs. Tucker. Whenever I became discouraged or did not desire to
Thousands of years ago, the great King Solomon, of Israel, once wrote, “Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.”(King James Version, Proverbs. 24.3-4). I have grown in many ways throughout my school career, especially in the subject of Literature/English. Throughout this time period, I have received many accolades and achieved many goals, relating to my writing of essays. These achievements include all As through middle school, all As through the academy, and a perfect score on the English section of the CRCT. I was able to achieve my goals throughout my writing experience because of my increased vocabulary, my avid appetite
When I first started college I did not know what to expect with an English class. I liked writing about topics that interested me, but high school did not allow me to do that. I took American History and we would have to write
