I feel that I did a good job in developing and supporting complex ideas and arguments, but a terrible job of telling the counter arguments. In almost all of my papers I wanted to the last minute to mention the rebuttals to my suggested ideas. This made my papers evidence weak, causing my paper to lose credibility. I wish I was better at introducing and countering my opposing viewpoints for each paper. Another thing I need to improve on is my peer review and editing skills. I could 've helped a lot of people 's scores if I was better are finding mistakes. Although I hate editing and revising, I need a lot more practice with it. Althought I felt that I did a good job supporting complex ideas, I know I could 've added more support to make my paper even stronger. I also should 've abused my resources better than I did. There are so many things that could 've helped my papers out but choose to ignore them such as using the writing center, talking to my instructor, or even connecting with classmates. It is without a doubt my writing could use areas of improvement. In conclusion, my experience in English 102 was way better than English 101. I learned a great many things about myself and my writing. I know that I am not the best writer, but I am also not the worst. Without more practice and more time I can grow into a strong writer. Writing is a very powerful tool if used correctly. I hope to grow into a person who can write their way out of an argument rather than a person who can fight their way out of an argument because everyone knows the pen is mightier than the

Writing was a challenge that I dreaded when I chose to be in the course, nonetheless with time, I learned from my mistakes and was able to improve.

    I used my goals for inspiration to fix my paper and also the notes of my typical problems to help me. This writing process was strange to me because I had to pin point everything that I am not too good at and write it xeon to myself and then fix it in my portfolio. It was almost as if I was writing little hate notes to myself because my note should say “your bad and analyzing” “you summarize too much” but that all inspired me to create the portfolio that I now hand to you professor. My journey defiantly does not stop here. I will use these new skills to help me progress in my future papers and now I leave this class with an understanding of what it is to be a good writer.…

Furthermore, those weaknesses were I had many awkward sentences, not using academic vocabulary, and not adding much detail.

    As English is my second language, I was deficient in editing my work, and in our report, editing was considered as one of the significant parts. I mostly lacked in the grammar side of my written texts, so I had to seek help from my team mates when needed. The factors in which criticises these points to be significant helped me learn sufficient lessons. The point which highlighted my positive contribution to the team was putting the equal amount of work as others and also working ahead. The examples which approve this point are that; I made sure, I’m doing the same workload as others by asking them how much they did, and during the completion of the project, I tried to make drafts of my work earlier, so I could go through it and ask questions from my tutors.…
