English 1010 Class Reflection

Decent Essays
Over the course of this semester I learned a lot about myself as a writer. This English 1010 class has really allowed me to expand my essay structure and ways of thinking. When I first started this course, I was scared and didn’t really know what to expect. I branched out to different styles and types of essays as well as incorporating outside sources into my work. When I received my first essay back with the feedback and the grade, I realized that I was not a really good writer. In this letter I will describe the course that I have chosen, how I have met my achievement and goals for this class. I have chosen three pieces of writing for my portfolio: “Immigration Reform,” “Class Unavailability Issue at Utah Valley University, “and “Writing to Change the World, based on the criteria set by …show more content…
I definitely think that I have accomplished my goal in this class so far. I have learned to take risks in my writing and to use the feedback from you and my peers, and now I know how to acknowledge the points of view of my audience to be more persuasive. This class has helped me to understand different writing situations that I never thought. Now, I found that this class truly helped me in my writing skills. I know that I will be able to use these skills not only while I am in college, but throughout the rest of my life. I would know say that am a decent writer, but not a terrific one. I know that I have to keep practicing, to improve myself every day. I am now confident in my ability to become an expert writer in both my college and in my job. The expectations for college writing are different from those for high school writing. I believe that my portfolio pieces show that I finished this course as a stronger writer. My writing skills that I have learned will only continue improving from this point on and I have you to thank for

Through high school, and continuing in college I have been able to follow certain formats to fit a writing proposal helping me create a well-structured paper.

    Having this little bit of taste of what college is really like, is what has made me feel confident about writing papers for my other classes. Also, having a persistent teacher has instilled this confidence in me too. These are only a few examples of what Dual Enrollment has done for me. Over the course have noticed that I have developed a particular writing style. My style is that I like to begin the first sentence of personal writing with something dramatic but still keeping it serious; while my last sentence shall be kept like a dramatic exit.…

Writing was a challenge that I dreaded when I chose to be in the course, nonetheless with time, I learned from my mistakes and was able to improve.

In the end, I can reflect that I learned from my mistakes and wrote papers that took time and dedication to accomplish.

    My first semester of college has been such a major change from high school because Professor Collins was very detailed about what needs to be fixed and how to fix it. While I was in high school, my English teacher did not do a very good job at giving feedback. Also, having my classmates give ideas on what to write about always played a big part in writing my final draft. I also thought it was a crazy idea when Professor Collins told me that I should read my paper out loud but now I do it for every paper and will continue to do it. My biggest regret this semester was not going to the writing center more and waiting last minute to do my papers.…

    During this semester of English W131, I have experienced both accomplishments and setbacks while learning how to improve my writing skills. Throughout the course, I have learned that writing is not only about how much information is in the paper, but also about how well the writer’s thoughts are expressed throughout the text. Practicing many different styles of writing as I did in the class has helped me tremendously with my delivery in my writing. I believe that this course was one to prepare us for future writing courses with professors we will encounter who will give us feedback that may puzzle us because it will require more work and more thinking. Although I have had difficulty in the class, I do believe that I have learned from my mistakes and that I am finishing the course with stronger writing skills that will help me though the rest of my college career and life.…

    I know when college comes I will be very grateful for this class. The first introduction paper I wrote in this class proved to me how much work I really needed to do throughout the course of this class. With the different assignments, in class activities, and various different papers to write my writing began to evolve. My approach to writing not only changed but became an entirely different routine. Instead of diving head first into a writing assignment, I now think about the different things I need to do and the ideas I need to include to make that paper the best it can be.…
