Walking into this class for the first time, not one part of me expected to learn how to write papers through watching movies or through the in class activities we did. I expected to be given a topic, a length requirement, and a due date. This was not the case at all.

I am a very hands-on learner and it helped me to be able to see and participate in activities that involved the next paper we were going to be writing or helped to make sure we were formatting our papers the right way. For example, making the works cited in class for other student’s sources really helped me with my paper because I was struggling with one of my works cited. Also, when we were brainstorming popular culture ideas as a class, it made me dig deeper to find out what I wanted to write about, just by hearing other student’s ideas. Another in class activity that helped me was evaluating a past students paper then evaluating my own paper. This helped me because it showed me that, like the girls paper we read, my paper was not as great as I thought…
