This semester has gone by in the blink of an eye. The beginning of the school year fells like yesterday and now I am getting ready for finals. When I started the class I didn’t really know what to think. English and Writing are one of my weak points. I never really looked forward to English class and it was always one of those classes that dread going to. This class was different, I remember when you said you weren’t a big grader and didn’t enjoy doing it. That puzzled me, probably since grading was drilled into my head ever since I was a child. The other thing that puzzled me was when you said that if you do everything you told in class you will receive a B.

I never really had a good experience with peer-review back in high-school. It was mostly used as a time to mess around with classmates and do other stuff besides working on our papers. Needless to say, I wasn’t really looking forward to it. Once we actually got around to peer-reviewing I found it surprisingly helpful. I was able to get a lot of useful information from my partners on how I should improve my paper before turning it.

Getting review on my paper also helped out a lot. Both my peers and you were able to give great advice on my EIP Draft. This helped me out a lot when I went to create the final draft. My e-Portfolio is something I have never done before and I am glad how it turned out. It helps show how I have grown as a writer. It shows the transition from the beginning of the class and how I have improved throughout. It also helps show the growth of my Extended Inquiry Project. How it went from some little idea in a daybook entry to something much more. I was never a fan of English/Writing classes, but this was something different. You really helped me explore my mind and let me enjoy writing. Thank you for
