Decent Essays
Last year was my first year of college, as a freshman in college, I’m scared about failing my class so I tried my best to work on every assignment in order to have a good grade. But I still had all kind of new experiences, like driving by myself to school, new kind of teaching system and meeting new friends. I had many interested assignment from all my class, but my English 10M class is the class that help me improve on my writing. In English 10M class we had many essay assignment and we are require to do at least 3 draft before turning it in. We also have chance to do peer review and get feedback from professor, which help a lot for me to understand where I always make mistake on and need to work more on it.

The narcissism essay has a lots of requirement. I remember it was in my English 10M class, when we finished the reading about narcissism, we had an essay assignment argue about whether narcissism is good or bad, and we need to use the resource from those reading, and connect my own experience or opinion.

This is very hard for me at the beginning because I never did any kind of citation before. In High School I used to write my essay without doing any citation and I can still get a good grade on it. In College, some professors does not require citation, so I don’t have a lot chance to work with it. Citation might be a small problem, but it could cause plagiarism, which is a very serious problem. Using sources in my papers can help me to write a strong paper with a lots information support. But I didn’t know that if I used someone’s work I had to mark a quotation with those words or even we put it in our own word, we still need to cite it. It is what I learn new and is very important for any

    That seemed to be the main issues along with a few formatting problems. Which was surprising because, I have been using MLA format since my freshman year of high school, but I guess you learn something new every day. Another point I was not pleased with throughout my grade book was not indicating the focus of my essays clear enough and elaborating on my thoughts. These two problems have been a major cause for my essays to fall short of what I was hoping. It is ironic going back and looking at the rubric for my “This I Believe” essay and seeing that I did not clearly state what my belief was, which was one of the most crucial parts of my…

    In high school, my teachers never had me write reflections on any of my work; therefore, I thought it was quite odd that I had to do it for this course. At the start of the semester, I did not see the point in writing reflections and really did not put much effort into them. I started to see the value in writing reflections as the semester progressed. I started to see that reflecting on my work benefits the reader and myself. Reflections allow the reader to see my thoughts on my process and writing; furthermore, reflections allow me to think about problems I encountered and how I worked past them and show my progression as a writer.…

    I was never really taught on how to do in-text citations so I had to kind of teach myself to better that skill. Also, here and there throughout my research paper I had many run on sentences but that is an easy fix because it was only my second draft. Another strong point in my paper was the conclusion, which typically that is my hardest part of finishing a paper. The expectations for college writing is far different than the writing in high school. I believe that my final pieces of writing show how I have grown as a writer from the beginning of college.…

    When I began studying at the University of Montevallo, I had a background of high school creative writing and English classes, and one summer of a college English class. To be honest, I was terrified of jumping into my fall English 102 class. I felt I was unprepared for a serious college level composition class, and that I would have a strenuous time adjusting to a four-year university. However, as I walk away from my English 102 class I carry the understanding of writing a college level essay, undertaking research and completing a research and argument paper properly, and knowledge to prepare me for my other classes and profession. The fear of writing a college level essay always crept in the back of my mind.…

    The answer is straightforward, they make sure the student’s paper is on track and it will only help, not hurt, the paper. During my senior year the time to apply to college quickly approached, and if just that was not intimidating enough, I had to also write a college application essay. How does one write the most important essay of their career without being terrified? To avoid being frightened, I had several peer reviewers, with many being my past English teachers. Not only were the reviewers able to help me with any grammar mistakes, offer better word choices, but they were able to teach me that differing people can offer new opinions, but as long as the essay is what I wanted it to be, then it is perfect.…

    In my writing career I have had many good essays and also just as many bad essays. I wasn’t a very good writer until my freshman year of high school. It was a very big changing point in my life that I will never forget.

    I found having my papers evaluated as one the most important and useful aspect during the semester. The evaluations pointed out what I needed improving on. Many of the problems with my writing was “bad wording” and I found it to be true. In my Descriptive Essay, when I first went to the writing center I found myself correcting many grammatical wordings and phrases. Learning from my previous essay I then took the time to improve the way I arrange my wording and how I write out my sentences in the next paper.…
