Pre K Reflection

Good Essays
Writing has become the destructive force to challenge one 's perception where the ability to think and write is somehow conmect. As one famous columnist Walter Lippman stated when asked his thoughts about a particular topic “I don 't know what I think on that one.I haven 't written about it yet.” Through writing, my experience has grown founder as I am able to understand myself on how I stand on specific viewpoints by how I write about them. Throughout Pre-K and towards college writing has challenged me in various aspects to become a better writer something of which I enjoy now. For as long as I can remember, I began writing in Nursery School which is Pre K in the U.S. These moments in Pre K, I was focusing on drawing perfect circles, …show more content…
As I progressed to a higher grade I focused more on how to use punctuations more effectively. In Grades 3 to 5 the courses that I took were separated in different sections which consisted of English, comprehension and spelling. These sections were graded on how well one can write an essay given a topic and through rigorous spelling tests. My writings were very short about one page and were graded on a scale of four, one being the highest and four being the lowest. The transition to sixth grade was different because my country follows British rules of grading and follows a different system when advancing to the sixth grade . We began to write more because we were preparing for state tests. Writing responses to historical articles such as ancient writings from Mayans and books like Holes, and the Hunger Games which became one of many intense writings I have ever done. These writings were four to six pages long. This was different from most of my earlier writing and ultimately became something that I was not comfortable doing. After completing many of these assignments it became a habit for me to write more than I should and prepared me for high school . As I entered …show more content…
Not only does it argumentative writing provide me with a different point of view from others, it lets me understand each side of a story. It is very beneficial to write very often as it helps me become better at writing, however when I do begin to write a paper it is very hard for me to start. An introduction is a vital part of any writing and if I fail to capture the attention of your reader at the beginning it will deter my reader from reading my paper. Hence, the reason why I struggle with introductions because I want to be able to capture my audience at the moment they read the first sentence. I like starting my papers as soon as possible because it does take me a while to get my introduction done and more importantly supplies me with more time to edit and process my work. My writing is similar whether I complete it at school or at home. A lot of pressure comes to writing in class because I am timed as opposed to writing at home. Body paragraphs are very simple for me because providing evidence is similar to supporting an argument. My growth as a writer has been shown in persuasive writing and argumentative writing. In high school students produced an article of the week, with these articles I would find the arguments and write argumentative essays based on the author 's point of view. However, identifying how the author target his or her audience

    Now, I want more than just an A, I want someone to look at my papers and say, “wow, I wish mine sounded like that.” I write because of how it makes me feel. Writing all of my feelings down on a blank document gives me a sense of relief that I can’t get if I am writing for someone other than myself. I write because I want to get better. Writing helps me not only wash my feelings away but also it helps me improve me. I write because my life wouldn 't be the same if I didn’t.…

    I’ve been able to relate to topics discussed in class, identified improvements and weaknesses from one paper to the next as well as began to use outside resources that helped with my writing overall. To begin, starting a writing prompt I noticed that I had retained a lot of information that I had put into papers by studying it day after day. Not only did I learn a lot about my topics, but by discussing in class helped me understand classmates topics as well. This has shown that by talking, reading and writing about something will help it stay in your memory for a long time. Next, while writing through out this course I’ve learned I have made improvements as well as identified some weaknesses.…

    I found it very difficult to not implement the writing techniques and strategies that were taught to me in elementary school into high school papers because of how programmed I was to follow them. During my early years of high school, I was often given templates and various examples of what my writing was supposed to look like. I was basically expected and follow and model the writing of other writers and adhere to strict templates and guidelines. The templates and writing examples that I was instructed to follow made it difficult for me to develop my own writing process and discover my own writing strengths and weaknesses. As I began to take advanced placement writing courses in high school and writing courses at my community college, I began to realize that high school writing has a different level of standard than college level…

    I have less grammar errors, and I am able to do a well structure and organize essays. During this year I had to do a lot of essays not only for my English class but also for my college 's applications. Doing college’s essays were complicated because I had to do a lot of them in a short amount time. I never had done an essay for a college before, so I wanted to make sure I did the best I could. When I started my essays I had a lot of problems of explaining my ideas because the questions for the essays were not that specific, so I had to be more creative with my writing.…

    What did I have that they didn’t? I had practice writing and received more control of how to collect my ideas and organize them into a paper that allowed me to acquire worthy grades. To emphasize, I am able to collect my ideas faster due to the consistency of writing every week. This behavior has led to me to being able to manage my time more efficiently on ideas such as punctuation and even creating longer sentences that will improve my papers. 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.…

    It wasn 't because I wanted to know what they thought of my work but more because I wanted me to think of my work not just confined to myself by out there for everyone to know it 's okay to express yourself. Also I find narrative essay difficult because you have to come to terms with your situations that have been pressed below but I think that makes it more rewarding with you finally reach the surface. Since I have only written one narrative essay this semester I think that would best reflect my writing as of right now. The searching was my favorite part of the writing process by the hassle would be the conclusion because there was a constant debate in my head of what it could be but…

    Having extra ideas allowed for me to have lots to discuss and for me to have enough options that I could pick what applied to my argument the best. I also found it very helpful to write a rough draft of my essay, and then leave it for a few days. Then when I was ready to work on my essay again I was looking at it with a renewed perspective that permitted me to catch more errors than I likely would have been able to had I not taken a break from writing. Once I had my essay to a point where I was relatively happy with it, I had someone read it to proofread it. Which also helped tremendously, they were able to tell me to look at certain parts of my essay that I needed to reword so it became clearer to the reader.…

    Even though I strive to put out my best work for every assignment, I feel that my writing skills are unsubstantial. It seems like most students can look at a topic and know what to write, for me it takes copious amounts of time to even consider the starting point. I struggle especially with sticking to a topic and connecting with the material. If I cannot connect with the subject of the assignment, I have difficulty finding persistence. Additionally, I sense that my English classes have not fully prepared me to write at a college level, but have solely forced me stay at the high school level.…
