Graduate-Level Writing Analysis and Development Plan Communication in writing skills for the past six weeks were standards information on different sorts of sources for rapidly flowing needs of today’s writers. This form of writing shows the role of strategies in writing on subjects. It demonstrated contracts between oral communication and written communication. The main ideas in this course discovery, objectives, critical thinking, and tension, valuing course resources time management, and cooperating with others (Giordano 2012). However, the skills for effective writing produce volumes of master’s level for the required resources in this way.
Upon entering Columbia College, writing was one of my weaker areas. It was very important that I gained the necessary knowledge and confidence to become a better writer. I didn’t know how to express myself and felt as though my writing was not my interest. As a result of taking English 101, I have gained a better understanding on how to properly research and build a satisfactory paper. Every paper that was assigned seemed like a struggle to complete. Before entering this class, I did not know the meaning of a thesis or why it was important, however, I obtained this skill quickly. I noticed that every paper has an argument and the thesis helps clarify the rebuttal. Now, I have a new outlook on writing. It’s a way to express my thoughts and allow others to see things through my eyes. There is no doubt that I still have a long way to go, but I know if I continue to write, I will get better. Just as I developed more skills in class, the various papers assigned helped to better structure the writer in me. In addition, the subject areas were not only interesting, but very informative and made it much easier to write about my experiences.
Proficient writing is an essential skill in all aspects of academic and professional achievement. English 101, Introduction to Composition and Rhetoric, provided the framework to good writing, teaching me composition and rhetoric fundamentals, polishing up my grammar and style, and expressing a clear message. English 102, Composition, Rhetoric, and Research, continued to build on the skills I learned in English 101, focusing on the subject matter research process and employing various rhetorical and literary devices to better express a clear message to the reader. The course also improved my critical thinking capacity, allowing me to culturally evaluate my target audience, present logically flowing arguments using appropriate language and structure, and critically reviewing my writing projects for content and expression. Every writer inherently knows there’s always room to improve and I hold fast to this mindset in all academic, professional, and personal writing projects. English 102 has both challenged and inspired me to grow into a much better writer than before I began the class, providing the necessary skills to be not just a good writer, but a great writer.
I hope to improve a greater understanding of different forms of writing. I believe this course will encourage myself to overcome
Where is Your Writing? A learner’s ability to communicate effectively through writing to his/her target audiences is a major prerequisite for academic success. It is also a major pillar of success in one’s career across all areas of practice. Even though, writing clearly is critical to one’s academic and career success, I have not always loved writing. In fact, for a long time I despised writing. At one point, I had a feeling that my writings skills were bound to remain stagnated throughout my life. However, time has proven that I was wrong. My attitude and outlook towards virtually all genres of writing has changed positively. The various helpful methods I have been exposed to by my English teachers through different grades have helped me
Introduction Life is a cycle of learning and the dissemination of what we’ve learned. In each day of our lives we learn something new to add to our list of skills and knowledge. When I first entered university, I thought the writing courses were useless and just a waste of time since we all can write. Later, however, I realized how those courses are beneficial in improving our critical thinking and communication skills not only the style of writing.
Reflective Essay Writing influences the way humans communicate. Good writing skills are essential in the working world and it’s important for our own self. The love for writing creative stories that engage the reader personally feels like an impossible task. After thirteen years of English I’ve realized that English does not come easy to me. It’s important to note that my writing skills have improved over the years. Going into my first year of college, I was nervous. I knew that my writing needed improvement. During my first semester of college, I was able to take the WAC 101 class. This class not only improved my writing, but it also encouraged me to start reading again. I look at reading as a task instead of a hobby, but I know that it can progress toward something that I like to do on my free time. WAC 101 is a class that helps develop a student’s writing skills. To measure the progress, outcomes in different areas of writing are reflected upon.
Writing throughout time has been one of the most essential ways of learning. To be good in many professions you must be able to articulate yourself in some form of writing. In class I had tools brought to my attention that would help me become a more effective writer. A few of those tools where the ten core concepts, conducting an interview and learning to write a research paper. All of which that I learned in class this semester has helped me become a more articulated writer.
When I first enter this classroom, ENG 3305, I consider myself a simple communications writer. I would simply read or study a situation, then write about it by stating the facts, narrating an event or idea, or simply give instructions on a task to do. I took this course with the notion of improving my writing skills by unlocking my intellectual mind and become more critical and analytical of the information I was to write about. My expectations for my writing skills was to become more assertive when explaining things in writing. I do not possess a large or extensive vocabulary as I would like to as a writer, however, I could compensate by becoming more creative with my writing style, and that is what my goal was when I decided to take
Overall taking this course has greatly improved the way I address writing. I learned so much about the importance of language and the inclusion of the proper building blocks when crafting a piece of writing. For instance, our exploration of the use of figurative language in the beginning of
The First Year College Experience When I began this class, I thought that I knew quite a bit about writing. However, as it progressed it soon became clear that I knew far less that I thought. This class has shown me how to take my personal skills, and adapt them to
Reading and Writing Enhancement Workshops The basic requirement for any international non English speaking student is a proper reading and writing. Fairleigh Dickinson University has taken an initiative by starting a program named English as a Second Language (ESL) specially for non native speakers of English. The students are made to attend classes which consist of lots of activities and learning. Students are provided with certain tasks as research papers where the student has to analyze and write on several issues. The students’ writing skills are assisted by Metro Writing Studio (MWS) which focuses mainly on the writing skills of the student. MWS helps the students to focus on their writing by making them comfortable with the formats of writing and by guiding them whenever required. Students are given access to almost all the materials and research papers from experts regarding the field. These sources helps the students to redirect their research by presenting their ideas with the ideas of the experts.
Summary Paper on Guides and Tutorials Introduction Until starting this class, I never realized the limited knowledge I had on writing. The four assigned reading pamphlets and tutorials, while not very long, have enlightened me. This eye opening is not large, measured on what is to come, but the overall experience is dramatic so far.
The majority of countries around the world, including the United States, contain different linguistic and cultural groups. Despite this, few educational systems truly embrace these diverse languages and cultures inside the classroom or through instruction (Pinnock, 2009). “Language is the channel through which people’s cultures are transmitted”, but promoting only one or two languages deemed important the school system is separating many children from their culture (Pinnock, 2009). The ways in which language and culture are utilized in the classroom can be a “vital barrier or enabler” in successfully achieving national education goals (Pinnock, 2009). By embracing cultural as well as linguistic backgrounds and implementing them into classroom instruction, educators can help reduce the barriers facing an increasing population of English language learners in America’s educational system.
Writing is essential to communicating on many levels, and it can display your level of understanding or lack of understanding communicating. Whether is Facebook, Twitter, an email to your co-works, or a professional document you will be judged by your writing style based on if it’s good or bad. If your writing style full of miss-spelled words, bad grammar, and horrible flow you will fail to get your point across clearly and people will think you are uneducated. This class is step one on my journey improving my writing and learning as much as possible about the English language. Just like anything else you have to start with the basics and I feel like I accomplished that over this last eight weeks.
