Good Essays
A segue class is one that transitions you to another class. The English composition segue class is an excellent class to help students transition from high school to college, especially in writing. However when It first came to my knowledge that I had this class I did not believe this. I did not get out at of this class as much as I could of, however I did learn a lot. My experience as a segue student taught me writing, college, and even real world skills.
Throughout my life my struggle spot in school has been writing. Whenever I know that I need to write something I panic. However after English 099 I am a more confident writer. The advice my professor gave me has been very beneficial. She taught me grammar, organization of a paper, and how to write a thesis statement.

Coming into college from high school is a very big change. In college you have to grow up or else you will get drifted into the wind. Skipping class is very tempting because you will not get immediate punishment if you do so like in high school. As the semester started I skipped segue class a lot. To me it was an irrelevant class, and my teacher did not say anything to me when I did. However after the first big assignment I came to the realization that my friends that attended segue regularly received higher grades on it then I did. After that I learned my lesson. Also my professor lectured us about class attendance one day that she was feeling a bit frustrated. She said to us "Why are you all paying for a class you do not even come to, in that case you might as well just not waste your time in coming to college." With those few words I realized that the only way I was going to be successful in college is if I am in class. However being in class does not just mean being physically there, you also need to

    Writing has always been a part of my life that I have both fond and not so good memories about it. Starting in the early years of elementary school, I can remember teachers emphasizing us to be creative in our writings so that they would stand out from the others in the classroom. Some people may think that writing is just to get through an assignment and on to the next one; however, it has always had a way of enveloping me into the writing process since high school. Throughout my English classes in high school, I grew from being an average writer, to feeling like I was excelling at my work. The process that I went through was possible because of the English teachers that I was fortunate to have my later years in high school.…

    As I entered AP Language and Composition, I felt confident and excited because I have always enjoyed English. I knew going into the class that it would include writing several papers, but I have enjoyed writing since I was younger; however, some of the writings are more difficult than others. For example, I seem to struggle with synthesis writings, whereas I tend to do well on argumentative writings. I already had an idea as to what I would learn and do throughout the class because I had spoken with students who took it last year, but I did not expect some of the writings to be difficult, or the Capstone paper to be stressful. I felt a little discouraged and agitated at times, but my confidence has grown because I did better than I thought…

    In the beginning of high school, I couldn’t understand the importance of handling my responsibilities, especially when it came to my school work. I just couldn’t find the motivation to hand in stuff like homework on time. I actually started to do less and less each school year. I never try to fix my problem because there were never any consequences to it. I would pass all my classes with decent grades with no problems despite ignoring a lot of the work, but then I was called by my English teacher to stay after class.…

    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.…
