Guantanamo Bay Reflection Essay

Good Essays
After reading the comments of my peers from project two. I can confidently say that the majority of the class liked my piece about Guantanamo Bay. I am extremely grateful for the ones that liked it gave me positive feedback. I am also grateful to the people that critiqued my work. This will allow me to go back and make the changes I need to make my piece that much stronger. The critique that came out the most was the critique of me not having a clear-cut audience. I am aware of that mistake and I will be going back and fixing the problem in these coming days. Although I enjoyed reading the project three rough drafts. We as a classroom still have a lot of work to do before the final portfolio. Some more than others, but in general we all need to work on our projects three to make our final portfolio sensational.
Going through all my classmate’s papers and reading them, I had a few that stuck out. Why College Athletes Should Be Paid, Obesity, and Safe Sex. Why these papers stuck out to me so much was because of the information that was provided throughout the essay. When reading, them I wanted to read more. I wanted to learn more information about all these topics I was kind of ignorant on. While on the topic of these essays, they also need to be worked on to fix mistakes throughout their essay.

I’m not afraid to say it but I am sexually active. Safe sex is a big role in my life, because I wouldn’t want catch something that will shorten my life or just make a life more difficult. In Safe Sex the author back up my claims with great information. The resources the author used was an interview from a girl that got pregnant at the age of 15. The author doing this gives more of a connection to the audience they picked. I also liked how author went about giving their call to action. The call to action I thought will work was spending more time in schools teaching about safe

    Now writing my final paper for this class I understand how I struggled with the different assignments in different ways. I realized how every assignment had a point and a lesson that taught me to be a better writer, better researcher, and to build my own structure. It seems apparent now that I learned a lot more than I thought from this class. I now hope I can use these new skills in my other classes and within my future research papers. I hope that I will not struggle as I did with every beginning of each assignment but remember the skills I have acquired an apply them as…

    I used my goals for inspiration to fix my paper and also the notes of my typical problems to help me. This writing process was strange to me because I had to pin point everything that I am not too good at and write it xeon to myself and then fix it in my portfolio. It was almost as if I was writing little hate notes to myself because my note should say “your bad and analyzing” “you summarize too much” but that all inspired me to create the portfolio that I now hand to you professor. My journey defiantly does not stop here. I will use these new skills to help me progress in my future papers and now I leave this class with an understanding of what it is to be a good writer.…

    My experience in writing in a college-level based class has taught me a lot about the strength and weakness of my writing. As a writer, I try to convey as much information as possible to the reader and make sure to clarify all of my statements. But, sometimes I jumble sentences together causing comma splices and really make it hard for the reader to essentially; read. I’m working on sentence structure to help create a flow within my writing. Along with sentence structure, organization is also something that is on my priority list.…

    My development as a writer has throughout this course has been an exciting one. During high school my teachers were very strict in what they wanted which in ways helped my writing but in other ways it hurt my writing. This course has given me the freedom to write about things that interest me while helping me grow. It has made me mindful of my grammar, which I normally just did whatever, and it has also given me the chance to improve by means of useful feedback from my professor. My writing process has gone from last minute essays to real thought out essays.…

    Before I would not have a process on how to write an essay I would just do it and turn it in thinking it was great how it is but in writing an essay it is never finalize as I learned from Dr. Moreno because there is so much more that can be done. As a result, my writing has improved so much since part A because I learned to have a process for writing such as others editing my work and brainstorming. My writing still needs work because I still have trouble with academic vocabulary that I will expand on soon. In the future for my writing I would love to see it better than it is now because it is the one thing that is going to be used for the rest of my life. Overall, this class taught me so much such as research, conducting data, and blogs.…

    Peer Review Experience

    My thoughts are great, to me. When I bring my written assignments in to other students to read and review, I quickly hear my way of thinking maybe not so great, but if I learned one thing it is that two heads are better than one. Peer-review helped me out a lot in this quarter on my writing for those times I may have missed a spelling or punctuation error. I learned a peer-review can be great, but I also learned there is a downside to peer-review. Some of the most challenging aspects of revision and getting feedback from others were that I would sit down for hours and write my heart out to the best of my abilities and when it was time to hand my paper in for a peer-review, the only feedback I would get was “it was good”.…

    Never before have i written a paper of this length about a researched topic. By combining all the previous papers i wrote about this topic i was able to jot down and plan an idea of how to organize a big paper. By taking specific things i wrote from the other papers it made it easier to have the good ideas in the paper without having to re-research it. Although i did research more when i wrote the major paper, taking my previous ideas helped majorly in cutting down thinking time. Writing a paper this big definitely makes me feel more prepared when i have to write papers in college because i built a foundation and now have the experience of writing long papers.…

    That I also should start turning in essays printed off because the essay is then easier for me to examine and easier for me to acknowledge the edits others have made. Instead of trying to make the comparisons online and just reading a screen without making side notes for myself. While moving forward the class displayed my weaknesses and things I still need to become stronger on. Including my essay structure, which was horrible in Lord of the Flies but that weakness developed when we wrote our documentary project. Even though I am slowly making progress of becoming an college-level writer I still have things I need to become stronger on, including effective grammar and my word usage; the biggest weakness I have.…

    American Psychological Association has many rules when it comes to citing works, creating a heading, numbering every page, and having a well set reference page. Citing pieces of works to my writing was definitely a huge challenge to me because never before did I have to cite papers that I had previously written in school. One of the things that really set me up for success was when my teacher provided a video tutorial on how to properly cite pieces in the paragraphs correctly. The class provided a serious challenge due to the amount of time given, to the work that had to be…

    My real struggle happened when I began trying to expand the short narrative into a full length essay. It was very difficult for me to elaborate without making mistakes in the essay. After a considerable amount of time attempting to tweak and expand on the first essay, I finally understood and began to add detail and description. I found the peer’s review process of this essay very helpful, not only with grammatical errors and tense usage, but also with the overall style of my essay. After my instructor’s suggestions on the different papers , the several articles summarizing and the different peers’ reviews all based on the learning disponible resources I had in this class, my writing improved and made me more confident in my…
