First of all, as I have mentioned it above, I have a good attendance and participation in the class. Attendance and participations are not only very important to improve myself but they are also indicators of the effort I put in the task of learning the subject. This effort deserves a perfect grade. Which is perhaps an A+.Secondly, I have completed all the assignment that my instructor gave to me on time. Timeliness is an effort deserving another A+. I am not claiming I deserve an A+ in all aspects. In the first assignment, I got a low grade whendiscussing about the major subject that I was going to take while attending Tennessee State University. I had many grammar, spelling, and sentences construction mistakes in that assignment. Then, I worked hard and I had a good progress in the subsequent product review assignment. I wrote about iPhone 6plus, and earned an excellent grade on it, although it was not perfect, and I had a few mistakes on it. I am making a point here that progress was in the making. Also, in the midterm exam I got an A because I worked hard again. After the midterm, I had another respectable grade on the writing aboutthe right to bear arms in educational institutions. The trend shows that the old days of poor communication is almost gone. Why then should they count in determining my grade today? Third, I have been participating in the class with the discussion among students.
