Strengths And Weaknesses Of A Remedial Class

Improved Essays
In not passing the exam to get in to college English was difficult to hear because remedial classes is known not to be good doing in college. However, the only thoughts that came through my mind was positive because the class would help me become a stronger writer. In knowing my weaknesses of writing this class was going to be beneficial to strengthen my weakness even though took part A already of this remedial class this B part is to add the final touches to making my writing college level. In my portfolio it will contain different essays that begin from the beginning of the semester till the end of the semester which has improved in my eyes. This class challenged me every time I was there because it required to push myself for better not …show more content…
Project each containing progressions with them. They all have different prompts such as Project Web was to create a blog that would help people , Project Text was to do research on the 43 missing students an Donald Trump, and Project Space analyzing people responses for the question “before I die I want to”. In doing all this projects the progression was a big part to writing them because it was helpful to have an idea in what you are going to write about. That would make the actually essay easier to write because all the brainstorming was done and written just needed elaboration. My two favorite essays of this whole class was Project Text and Project space because in both I learned new things I did not know before. In Project Text I learned about the tragedy in Mexico of the 43 missing students that were going to school for a better future for their community. It is sad to hear there is still no justice for whoever did this to this students and families. In Project Space analyzing the responses of students , faculty, and staff was really interesting because they all had to think about the question” before I die I want to” it is not something everyone thinks about. In the group project I was engaging with people which was great because I got to experience how some people were not in to the project and others that were happy to participate. We analyzed that many people wanted to travel and skydive. Furthermore, there was …show more content…
The revisions would be done by my peers, SI leader, and Dr. Moreno which was really helpful because they would help me improve my weaknesses. Furthermore, those weaknesses were I had many awkward sentences, not using academic vocabulary, and not adding much detail. In having this weaknesses it did not bother me because it was great to learn ways to fix my errors from different people all the time. This taught me that writing a essay is a process because you cannot just write it once it needs revision and brainstorming. Before I would not have a process on how to write an essay I would just do it and turn it in thinking it was great how it is but in writing an essay it is never finalize as I learned from Dr. Moreno because there is so much more that can be done. As a result, my writing has improved so much since part A because I learned to have a process for writing such as others editing my work and brainstorming. My writing still needs work because I still have trouble with academic vocabulary that I will expand on soon. In the future for my writing I would love to see it better than it is now because it is the one thing that is going to be used for the rest of my life. Overall, this class taught me so much such as research, conducting data, and blogs. It was great while doing this essays it was fun to do because I was learning something

    Throughout this semester of English 101, writing has become more of a skill than a struggle. 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 learned from this class to be confident in my writing and make all the mistakes to receive the grade I want in the end.…

    I still need to further my progress on grammar and organizational skills to make my writing flow better and punctuation. Just about all the papers that were assigned to me this semester had almost the same comments which were fixing the little things like punctuation. However, the writing that I must find satisfying are narrative essays because I think that is what I am best at, being one with a pen in paper is what I would say being an artist is all about. Before I would have never said my essays were art but now I truly believe that they are not because I wrote them and they got a good score but because I told my story and did not have to sugar code it for anyone, I expressed myself and put myself for everyone to see. 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.…

    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.…

    That I also should start turning in essays printed off because the essay is then easier for me to examine and easier for me to acknowledge the edits others have made. Instead of trying to make the comparisons online and just reading a screen without making side notes for myself. While moving forward the class displayed my weaknesses and things I still need to become stronger on. Including my essay structure, which was horrible in Lord of the Flies but that weakness developed when we wrote our documentary project. Even though I am slowly making progress of becoming an college-level writer I still have things I need to become stronger on, including effective grammar and my word usage; the biggest weakness I have.…

    Sometimes, I was sure that my draft was ready to be submitted, but my classmates helped me to find those little mistakes that were still unknown. My only problem with this peer review section was the fact it lead me to use multiple drafts, although I improved to overlook on my mistakes. Before I would never go back or have someone else to reread my papers. So, the writing process helped me to become aware of the benefit of the organization and the revision of the drafts to get a good final essay. Next, I also improved my understanding about the essay structure.…

    Writing anything is hard. Before this class I never gave any real thought to my writing I did it because it was something I was told to do. Although writing can be a difficult process, this class helped me to better my writing be teaching me how to better manage my time, use technology, and to be more confident in my writing. Many students lack the skills it takes to manage time when it comes to homework assignments. What I learned is waiting till the last minute to write your papers isn 't going to help you become a better writer, sure you 'll hand the assignment in and might even possibly get a decent grade, but you 're writing itself will never improve.…

    The reader does not understand my situation, so to be detailed in your writing gives them an opportunity to understand. Even though the skills of shitty first draft, outlines, and using concrete details have heightened my writing, I still have a lot of room to learn more writing techniques to become a better writer. Being able to go to EWRT 1A, I would have the chance to learn more new skills that I could use in the class to improve on providing my future readers to be satisfied with my…
