Norwalk Community College, I did not have any plans to attend this College, my original plan was to attend Universal Technical Institute, for their General Motor program (GM), but it was only available in Arizona. Disappointed I decided to attend Norwalk Community College. I made a major error by not taking the placement test for freshmen seriously, I just skimmed by so I could get out as quickly as possible I ended up placing in English-88 and a basic a basic math course, I was not able to take English my first semester because of a scheduling issue, but I did try to take it my second semester at night sadly it ended up being canceled from lack of students enrolling. I believe that taking English-88 my third semester worked out better then it would have if I had taken it my any other semester, and I have noticed major changes in my writing because of this course. English-88 has helped me improve my writing in three major ways. …show more content…

English Composition I has developed my style of writing and my skills analyzing and researching topics to write a piece about a topic. Throughout the course, I got better at analyzing articles and pieces to get the meaning of the topic. With that improved skill I was more able to use the information given from the text and install it into my essays, with proper citation if needed. Before taking the English Composition course, I was not one to organize my essays in an ordeal order to clearly state the point of the work. Now with taking the course, I have learned to organize my essays, examine research for a topic, and develop an essay with proper mechanics, and revising skills. In writing my personal, review, analytical, and cultural
During the transition from a high school writer to a collegiate writer, my strength at understanding the basic principles of
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 rhetorical appeals and how to apply them in my writing and how to look for them in a essay written by a author. I have also learned how to argue both sides of a argument, and how to look for reliable sources and to properly quote and site the author of the essay. I feel as if I have become a better writer and my improved writing skills are shown within each essay.
While attending writing class, I learned about the 4 steps in writing, bases for revising, organizing, and connecting specific information, and I also learned about the different types of essays such as descriptive, narrative, process, cause and effect and argumentative essay. I have been a student at Milwaukee Area Technical College for 1 semester, and over the course of my enrollment I have grown and learned more that I knew prior to attending this writing course. Participating in this writing class has taught me so much more than stuff about literature and language, it has taught me another way of expressing myself. I have learned here how to write and express myself, how to think for myself, and how to find the answers to the things that I don 't know. Most importantly I have learned how important technique, outlines and organization are. My goal in this paper is to inform writers about how my writing skills have improved.
Starting my ENG101 class, I felt like it was the basics of learning grammar and English material from high school. However, I quickly learned that I needed to brush-up on some of my writing skills. I acquired skills of the past, as well as some new ones. Writing may still be slightly confusing to me when using correct punctuation, run-on sentences, and organizing my thoughts. Learning to use an outline, create a topic to answer questions, and brainstorming has taught me to become a better writer.

Fall of 2015 was my first semester attending Los Angeles Valley College. My first time being introduced to an actual education unlike high school which was a complete depletion of effort because they deliberately advanced me despite my weaknesses and horrible grade point average at the end of high school. Not only was my mind vulnerable due to having that habit from high school which was turning in homework’s months late, never having to study because I’d be pass either way and homework’s, tests, weren’t even correct thoroughly. Besides not being prepared due to not being exemplified how to prepare, I stumbled across another issue where my trust was given and once again failed to thoroughly exhibit what was being presented. In this same
Througout my academic career, I have learned as much about myself as I have learned in school, whether it be from high school, to community college, and my journey that lead me to Arizona State University. I can honestly say as my parents did, that I wish I would’ve tried harder in high school. I scraped by taking the easiest classes possible and choosing to take the easy way out. Looking at my transcript makes me cringe, because I know that I am capable of so much more. I wish that I would’ve taken the honor classes and tried so that I would’ve been able to apply to a college other than a community college. My time at Mohave Community College was a significant improvement from my experience in high school. Not only did I graduate with near honors (3.49), I had made the Dean’s list and Honors List for three out of my four semesters, the first time this had happened since middle school. I had never felt more motivated and focused in my life. I was taking 16 credits and prospering and had a balance of work, school, and a social life. I had never felt more proud of my self in my life. As I sit here and write this paper, I question my time here at ASU as I try to plan the nex chapter of my life. I wonder where I am supposed to go and what I am supposed to do.School for the first time had become a priority, however, it began to consume my life. I would spend hours and hours on end doing homework and studying, and although there seems to be nothing wrong with this, I wouldn’t go
While Anne Arundel Community College is one of the most accredited community colleges in Maryland, I aspire to fulfill my academic needs elsewhere. The main reason I had to enroll at AACC was because I was diagnosed with brain cancer in February of 2016, this forced me to stay near Johns Hopkins Hospital to receive treatment. As fall approached my treatments became frequent and daunting. Never mind the fact that I was missing class that I was on the verge of failing, I felt depressed. Being a community college, AACC cannot provide me with an adequate college experience. Here I can't cheer on the football team or spend late nights in the library studying. As I see my peers living it up and making a name for themselves at their respected colleges, I feel
Within English 219, we have already learned a vital set of writing skills, that will allow for the improvement of essays, and summaries that must be written for future assessments. Some of these skills that would be relevant for achieving general writing improvement could be ideas such as thesis development, structuring and planning, or more specific examples when actually fleshing out the essay such as elements of grammar and style. Thesis development which is crucial so that ideas can be fully explained and related back to a point which can be interpreted as an overarching theme for the entire paper, and allows the reader to interpret the topic of not only the essay but of each paragraph. Taking a step back we looked in class at the subject
‘Just 2 more years, El,’ I thought to myself as I walked into good old Norwest Christian College, ‘Then you’re off to uni.’ Sighing, I wandered the hallways until I found the room I was looking for. Room 156. Of course, to showcase how much of a lucky person I am, I had gotten Math as my homeroom. Lovely.
During high school my mother suffered from two minor strokes, a benign brain tumor; she still has slight paralysis. When this occurred during my junior year of high school my grades didn't turn out as well as I wanted them to. I made my mother's well-being my main focus. I knew that my half-brother wouldn't be able to help take care of my mother since he worked and lived in Texas. I took on the responsibility to take care of her and the two flat income property that we live in. I still take care of her presently and that is why I chose to attend Oakton Community College, until her health stabilized. I have been able to stay focused at Oakton with the help of the staff at Oakton and my mother’s health improvements. I have learned from the faculty
This semester has been an eye opener to me about how I formulate ideas and outlines to my papers and visual works. My writing style and skills have gone through many changes throughout English 150 but by far there have been three areas where I have seen the most improvement. How I compose and formulate my works, using certain resources and how I integrated them into my paper, how I edit those works, and how well I use the advice and guidance from my peers to help me revise or complete my works.
I’ve come to learn that over the year I’ve gained new writing skills such as repetition, and imagery, which at one point were very difficult for me to construct. Now however, I can see how repetition can be used to empathize a point, imagery could be used to set a mood or tone, and rhythm can be used to keep the reader fixed on the piece of writing. A few barriers did slow me down but reading examples, and preparing many analyzing essays helped me get back on track.
MCC stands for Metropolitan community college. There are many community colleges out there and the one I went to was the MCC Penn Valley campus. MCC offers associate degrees in 80 different areas and a few of them are; associate of arts, business, engineering, computer science, and nursing. The average cost is 95 dollars per credit hour. MCC tuition is the lowest in the area and a third of what the public four year college is.
