Decent Essays
When I first started ENGL 1101, I expected it to be like high school all over again. In high school I was always in the more advance classes. I wrote essays, did book reports and was given a rubric to go along with so I knew what my teacher expected. My expectations was not what I was not what I was expecting nor was prepared be to graded so hard on my essays and journals. I can honestly say I didn’t have clear understanding over the work that I was getting graded over. Now I have less interest into reading and writing.

What I have learned about the rhetorical situation is you have to have a purpose for writing.I learned this by connecting to the values by engaging to the reader.. In the future, I can apply it to my future papers by going

I learned how to link my claim with thesis. I can use them in the future by improving my thesis statements.

I have learned a lot about the relationship between reading and writing. You have to have a clear understanding about everything you read. Then you have to write on it with my experience throughout this class, I will assume I didn’t understand anything clearly because of

the grade I had received. The reason why I said I didn't have a clear understanding because I'm so use to my teachers explaining everything and I knew what was expected. I can apply this in the future by making sure I understand the reading because it has a big effect on my writing.

I would say I haven't learned much about the stages of the writing process. I think the most important part of the writing process is engaging the reader because you want to catch the readers attention. I can use the writing process in the future by finding interesting things to write on, something that interest me.

My attitude toward reading and writing is now is not so great. I think the skills I have are because I learned the things I know now in high school. I plan to use these skills in the future by using my high school knowledge and it apply it my college

    During the first half of the semester for ENC 1102, I believe that my writing skills have improved from ENC 1101; some of which are getting to page length, correctly citing a source, and incorporating how a quote is related to my argument. I still have some errors within my writing that I have not quite figured out how to tackle. Some concepts that I have not gotten down to a tee must be coming up with a thesis statement, basic grammar errors, introducing quotations, and repetition. I have also learned how to distinguish the difference between a personal essay and an argumentative essay with first hand on the two types and how why my grade differed from essay one and two.…

    Writing has always been one of the most difficult skills that I have been learning through my college career, but it has also been the most important skill because unlike other skills writing affects my works across all courses or subjects. Writing has also helped me to get in to UMD, receive scholarships, and be accepted in research programs. Therefore, all the effort that I have made to improve my writing skill is worth it. From experience, writing is not like other skills that one can learn overnight, for me, writing skill is very slow progress and requires a lot of writing and reading; this is what I got from this class. In this class, my writing has advanced because I am reading more, practicing more, and writing more.…

    Every individual has his or her own writing process. But, certainly writing is an art and the five-step process of writing which seems to be linear starting from prewriting to publishing is cyclical and recursive.

    My Path to Literacy For a very long time writing and reading was a huge struggle for me. I was one of those students who was very intelligent, but disliked reading tremendously and was often told, “You write the way you talk”. The older I grew the more I realized that my struggles with writing was due to my lack of reading. I was aware of my issues but because it became a part of my writing habits it was hard to adapt to anything different. I wanted to be like everyone else and be a good authentic and productive writer but it seemed almost impossible.…

    The course have taught me about critical thinking, writing formats, organization, in text citation, and citation of sources. However, these were already taught in high school, but the teaching was more in depth and the power point on integrating sources was the best power point in helping with my research position paper. I definitely believe that I have grasped the knowledge of rhetoric writing, but also improved my organization and citing my sources because I didn’t know whenever citing sources it must be in alphabetical order. As for my grammar and English word choices will need improvement.…

    Works of writing will vary a lot based on the audience and the style of the paper. That is why it is important to adapt your writing to the specific assignment or project. Most of the time I find myself writing rhetorically on accident. Although some instances in high school I remember specific guidelines for example to not use I in papers. This is to adapt to the audience because when you are doing a research paper, the reader doesn’t care about what you think or what you believe.…

    During the course of my EN 111 class there have been many things that I enjoyed and a couple of things that I did not. First of all I particularly enjoyed the discussions that the class would have about the stories that we had to read. I liked this because when reading the story on my own sometimes it was hard to understand what was happening. When the class would discuss the stories aloud I was able to get more of an understanding out of it. Finding the deeper meaning was easier when we would discuss it together.…

    Written language is a trait known to be only possessed by mankind. Although other species may have audible forms of communication, man is able to record and document his thoughts, feelings, or events that have unfolded in a way that can be viewed multiple times without him having to use his voice over and over. Literacy is a skill that adults in the United States are expected to have; but the level of your literacy says a lot about you and can have a tremendous impact on what career you end up in. For this reason, this college English class is a requirement for all those seeking a degree. Not only did I learn how to think of subjects and topics more objectively, but I learned a multitude of different modes and strategies I can employ in my writing.…
