In my experience, the website Paperrater is a great tool to assist me with my writing homework and assignments. As instructed, by my facilitator, my homework on Time Management was submitted to Paperrater. Ironically, the outcome while not perfect still displays where there is room for improvement.

I believe I got the grade that I got because I didn’t spend time more look over my paper more carefully. I noticed after I saw the comment that the reason I repeated myself a lot because when I did my revisions on my paper, I didn’t really by close attention to what I wrote and what I wrote before. That led me to repeat myself few times in my paper. When I was final checking my paper, I thought there should be more Honda discussion than Audi because the Honda ad is my main discussion. I didn’t know that there should be a balanced ratio between both of them. I am happy with the grade that I got for my paper, but I could’ve gotten a better grade if I checked my paper more carefully than what I did before I turned it in.
When writing the final prose essay, I was not feeling very confident that I would increase in score from my previous 2. My prewriting was nonexistent and I wrote the entire essay in less than twenty minutes with little understanding of the prompt and what it was asking for. That being said, I somehow managed to score a 5 on my prose essay so I must have done something right.
I felt that I put a great deal of effort toward the grade that I wanted, through my strict self discipline in my class effort. I was extremely critical when I was reading novels and stories, editing essays, and writing essays. Moreover, I was able to improve my writing and analyzation
Overall, the essay seemed to lack flow as a result of a noticeable absence of transition words. The essay had bad syntax. Each paragraph seemed to be scenario after scenario and each sentence seemed to be idea after idea. For example, in the first paragraph, the list consisted of multiple sentences, instead of just one sentence with commas. “But they are few: Being mistaken for a wheat field by a cloud of locusts. Being buried alive”...“Interviews from film festivals.”, this seemed like an awful way to list ideas. In addition, the fourth paragraph of the essay was made up of only 2 sentences, one
I've heard about the PaperRater site from students here and there over the past year, and I've finally had a chance to check it out a bit. It's like Grammarly, but it offers a detailed analysis report after examining your work.
Lastly, self-evaluation is a key component to writing an effective essay. Even though I was able to have student feedback for my essays; self-evaluation is important for me to be able to determine my strengths and weaknesses in my writing. After composing each essay I was required to compose a self-evaluation. The evaluations describe what I consider the strong points in the essay, and were I felt I still needed to
I think my grade was pretty reasonable, because there were a few silly and critical errors I made when writing my paper. One of those silly mistakes was not using the website Paper Rater to check my grammar. I typed too fast and didn’t do a good job finding or inserting correct words. Another error I made was not making sure my sentence flowed smoothly in the same tense. Some of my sentences were very vague in my writing. As a result of this; next time I’ll try to improve my word choice and never use the word Things.
My writing process is like a baby learning how to walk. During their first year, the baby is busy developing coordination and muscle strength in every part of their body. They will learn to sit, roll over, and crawl before moving on to pulling up and standing. From then on, it's a matter of gaining confidence and balance before they start walking. They will fall over and over again but likewise, they will try over and over again until they’re off and eventually running. High school for me was like a baby’s first year when it’s preparing to start walking and this quarter in EWRT 211 was when I gave the first baby steps. With more practice, I’ll be walking with ease in no time. I believe I will be successful in EWRT 1A.
When you finish, reread the essay to check for all of the points above, and then proofread it to be sure your work does not contain errors in grammar or spelling.

The sentences structure are clear and it is understandable to the reader. Overall, I am very proud of how my paper turn out and I am happy with the first grade.
I feel that Katherine Miano's review of my work warrants a grade of "C". She revised little work, but the revisions were very important to the essay formatting. I was missing a comma after the “English 1001” in my header. Throughout the essay I used a lot of contractions such as “There’s” and “It’s”. She edited many of them into the original phrases that fit the context of the essay. Ms. Miano also pointed out my spacing errors between paragraphs, all of which I’ve corrected under her suggestion. However, other than those few revisions, there isn’t much to say. She didn’t give any sentence suggestions, or any advice towards diction. I feel that my evaluation towards Ms. Miano’s evaluation is fair.
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.
Completing the Go, Picture, Scribe assignment was a struggle for me in the beginning because I always procrastinated on doing the assignment. Starting college I never really knew how to manage my time so that I can do everything that needs to be done. But I knew in order for me to complete the assignment I had to figure out a way to manage my time. Sometimes while walking to class there would be tables set up that had information on them and I would take a picture of tables I saw and took flyers so that I could write about it on my GPS as another. And after my cornerstone class I am done for the day and class usually ends around 1:30 so I would take advantage and go to the 2:00 workshop. Workshops usually take the longest so I made sure I really
