I always been having trouble with grammars. My high school English teachers taught us about grammars and how to become a better writer. It was similar to what you had taught us in class because we always learned about grammar out of a book and we got tested after we been practice. Even after reading a book, we would write an essay about it. My past class helped me be prepare for college because they help us learn from our mistake and that college is hard, but we can improve. By the end of the semester, it seem that my grammar have gotten better, but also my writing because I had help from Tana in the tutorial center. …show more content…

The best quote I wrote would be, “I liked the feeling of the wind on my face and the warmth of the sun on my skin.” from the narrative essay because it show comparison between two things and I never use simile or metaphor in an essay before. “That is when Zits knew it was his father, and his family loves him,” is my weakness because of the use of present tense.

    Even though English 101 is a beginner writing class, it taught me how to apply those writing skills outside of the classroom walls, while helping me more than any of my other high school English classes. English 101 became better than predicted once the fear of procrastination disappeared, the writing became an expression. I feel now that I can write without being judged, and I can make the mistakes I need in order to excel. Likewise, the feeling of being confident in writing is the uttermost important lesson that this class has provided me with. Writing is not something that should be feared, but something that should be…

    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.…

    This is the last essay of my English 101 class. I enjoyed each and every minute of it. Through the books, professor Turner ‘s direct approach of teaching that consists of handing out several good and terrible examples of essays, sentences structure, and grammar in class, I not only improved my writing process such as selecting my topic, well organizing and supporting my ideas, but also corrected some of my punctuation and grammar problems. English is a second language to me, so I spent a considerable amount of time writing each essay as they had different challenges. Throughout my writing, I encountered weaknesses like punctuation and grammar that I will still improve in English 102.…

    Everyone hates English class is what I thought before taking English 102. However, that may have been the case before I entered Dr. Byrd’s domain, but after finishing the class I have come to the realization that English class can be greatly resourceful. English 102 this year has had its ups and downs, and I must admit the ups outweigh the downs. Meaning, this year, I have learned that I am not a student who wants to read or write, but through reading and writing my mind and skill sets concerning English have grown. During English 102 this year, reading and writing in class helped me expand my writing skills, improved my will to comprehend, and most importantly helped expand my knowledge.…

    Going into High School, my experience with the Sponsors their have shown me a new way of just reading a book. Now when I read a book, I try to find a movie or a graphic version of it to help put words into pictures. With writing, I grew up not wanting write, but my Sponsors showed me how writing can help me remember what I just read by writing words I do not know and their definition or writing lines to force what I’m writing to be remembered. With this new knowledge of literacy it has helped me become a better person and student because the skills that have been taught to me by the numerous sponsors through my years of growing made me better understand a subject by writing it out rather than hearing it in a lecture form or practices shown to me that I now use to help me. Within Skyline High School, I had many Sponsors helped me out in their own subjects but when it came to subjects like College, Personal Statements or linking with life after High School, I had little help from the Institution which led to me to do my own research to prepare what is to come for my…

    I can remember when I was in school, when a teach read I was amazed they knew all the words and could make the characters jump off the page. With XXXXXXX, I tried to learn the story and understand the author’s voice. I also thought of the presentation and how I would introduce this to my students. This story is out of the norm for our curriculum, but it was easier once I had the support of my school. I also chose to use my class with the most nonengaged learners…
