The class is specialized around communication and the English language writing skills. Knowing how to proper format MLA and APA, write, and cite/research are invaluable skills sought after in the workplace and will make you a far more effective worker by knowing those communication and writing skills. The knowledge of these skills will make you more appealing to potential employers and will help extend any employment you may acquire by opening up more job opportunities. There was an abundance of assignments through the course of English 111, all of which will help and be useful to ones own writing, but the most helpful assignment would be the Exploring Ideas assignments. It is these assignments that encourage us to think and write out our ideas better and help better set what we want to write. It enabled us to get a concrete and set plan of writing so we had something to go off, like an outline that adds detail about the topic. The assignment allowed us to take critique from the teacher on how we can improve the writing and make it a stronger or better written piece of literature. In the end, this English class, while hard for me, was very helpful and taught me a great deal about writing and English procedures that I had not previously known. While I still have plenty to learn, I will begin my next classes with a much better

    After finishing the English 101 course I feel like I have accomplished many of the goals that I was challenged with the beginning of the course, such as critically thinking and reading with text from the textbook “Dialogues” by Gary Goshgarian, substantively replying to my peers to understand their point of views from the text and to get a better understanding of a rhetorical argument. Thinking and reading critically were very important this whole course. Thinking and reading critically were something you would have to do in every assignment that was given. Incorporating it in every assignment has helped us greatly improve week by week and betters our understanding of each topic and the assignments main idea. To critically think and read is…

    The two most beneficial things learned from this class were information gathered from writing and discussing topics and the writing techniques taught in and out of the classroom.

The discussions provided the largest impact on how I viewed certain topics. The discussions gave us a safe and controlled environment where we could express our feelings on issues and listen to other’s opinions. This caused me to think more in depth and sometimes changed my opinion about…

    In my few years learning intense reading and writing, I feel that this English 101 course will help me expand my skills. I hope to gain some good attributes for my writing and reading abilities. A few attributes I hope to learn are: composing more professional documents, writing a paper that will convey my whole idea, and how to purposely use imagining purposes to my full advantage to gain better attention from my audience as Sarah R. Stein mentions page five in the DK Handbook (2013). By working hard on these abilities, I can foresee how my end product will develop into a higher intense writing. As I browsed the DK Handbook my first impression of this course was the same as a high school class I took.…

    The course have taught me about critical thinking, writing formats, organization, in text citation, and citation of sources. However, these were already taught in high school, but the teaching was more in depth and the power point on integrating sources was the best power point in helping with my research position paper. I definitely believe that I have grasped the knowledge of rhetoric writing, but also improved my organization and citing my sources because I didn’t know whenever citing sources it must be in alphabetical order. As for my grammar and English word choices will need improvement. In conclusion, I believe I grown as a writer coming into English 101.…
