Throughout the time I’ve spent in English 104 with a very good professor and understanding I feel that the learning I got was easily taught and give at a reasonable pace for me to get used to the new college atmosphere which is great and I really enjoyed my first semester. When Professor Horjus had handed out the directions for portfolio three I took this as another “yes”. Now I feel that I can write with ease and of course I am going to run into problems with my writing but who doesn’t? Its something that every great writer must encounter; for example J.K Rowling. I doubt she wrote Harry Potter in one run through. No she took her time, got peer reviews and did her writing process. Same thing with me except my writing process for the peers was in class and of course the professor, but being able to say something is yours and that you are proud to have a good writing process means a lot. It will pay off in a lot of writings because it means you are confident and have a lot of success coming your way with positive thoughts. Even though this is supposed to be a …show more content…
It has so much of a meaning that it pushes those other papers away and puts them to shame even if the research article sucked I know it doesn’t. Having spent many hours or a couple days on it means a lot to who should read it or even spend there time wanting to know more about which would make me happy because it means I made a difference. Picking out little parts of the article I feel are the best would be the emotional stories or even the facts that were given in the text because that means its true and someone can either relate to them or take it and run with the story. Meaning showing it to others or even using it as a piece for evidence that yes Tommy John for a fact works and I totally recommend

    I believe that this class was able to help improve my writing skills in many ways. Producing mid-drafts seemed like a nuisance at first, but has really helped improve my writing. By producing mid-drafts I was always tempted to re-read my essays before handing them in, which is something that I had never did before. Also having peer feedback also helped my writing. With the peer feedback I was able to take what was wrong with my paper and fix it before turning it in for a final grade which I found as excellent.…

    When it came to my papers I tried my best to have fun with them; I become distracted easily and if I don’t have something I enjoy for a topic I put it off for longer than is beneficial for me. That paper did end up being a bit choppy, though I did my best to make it not choppy, I added sentences in between each paragraph to try to make it flow. I tried to change my thesis to cover more ground so the reader would know what to expect and so they could follow along. That is one trait that I know about myself, though, I am a choppy writer. Making words and paragraphs flow isn’t my strong…

    I do believe that I should have been in the 112 section instead of 111, but I did not feel like taking the placement test. However, I am very glad I was in the 111 section, because it was a great experience. Through peer revision workshops, pre-paper planning, and the quality and enjoyment of the class, I feel like my writing has improved. While I know there is still room for improvement, I really feel like I grew as a writer. I really enjoyed my semester in First Year Seminar: Sex, Love, and Lust, and I can’t wait for what next semester First Year Seminar…

    My senior English teacher really motivated me and gave me the confidence back that I desperately needed in my writing. Writing became natural to me again and I felt like it prepared me for what to expect at the college level. My teacher would always tell me how great my writing was and also give corrective criticism to help me improve along the way. Starting to enjoy the assignments and writing again really helped the words flow when I would begin a new paper. Without my teacher’s help, I would not be as confident in my writing headed into…

    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…

    6. This question, like question 4, is hard for me to answer because I don’t feel that there was a teaching strategy that was non-helpful. The weekly discussions were great and I enjoyed being able to conduct my responses as like a letter written to the ‘teacher’. I took my peers responses to my post very seriously and tried to understand their point of view. Again, I thought all assignments were beneficial to my learning and I feel like I have learned a great deal of information.…
