What I Have Learned in English 101
I have learned a great deal in my second UA Early College class, English101. My writing skills have significantly developed and I have become a more experienced writer. In this class, I have learned to use MLA formatting, writing strategies and processes for different audiences and purposes, a variety of rhetorical strategies and processes for analyzing, and how to revise my work with attention to purpose, development, style, grammar, punctuation.
The last eight weeks have been quite a journey! My reflections of my experience include the two essays: “Self-Reflection Profile Essay”, the “Critical Analysis Essay”, and the final draft of my research paper “Puzzles and the Link to Problem Solving Abilities”. The posts I chose are from our first class discussion on Gladwell’s “The Matthew Effect” (Gladwell 2008), the discussion of our “Week 6 Stereotypes and Truth”, and a reply to some questions asked about my discussion.

Adult learners bring a wealth of maturity, time management skills, critical abilities, perseverance, and experience to the classroom (Bethel. 2016.p1). In order to create an accurate picture of where I am in life, how far I have come, and what I will need to succeed in the Leadership program, I took the self-assessment test. Rating myself was very interesting, the assessment allowed me to point out my strengths and weaknesses, that I don’t really think about on a daily basis.
Writing for me has always been a complicated and thorough process. While I have enjoyed writing for many years, I often found myself struggling to organize my thoughts in a way that would clearly show my true self to the reader. However, after going through the Reflective Writing Portfolio course, my writing has changed in both its organization and its overall focus. By examining numerous texts and revising many of my old writings, I have learned various techniques to effectively organize my…
My interpretation of the test itself, I always enjoy self assessments, they locate the areas which need improvements. I am amazed by some of the questions listed throughout the self-assessment. The self- assessment discovers the strengths and weaknesses in particular areas. Although they discover, I myself "occasionally" evaluate myself in order to perform at my best ability," generally speaking".
My biggest weaknesses include, money management, seeking support from other, energy,…
Unit 2 offers a self-assessment test that helps create a picture to help a person evaluate where they are in life, how far one has come since their last test, and what they have to do to be successful in Bethel’s online program (Bethel University, 2014). The test listed 30 skills for a person to evaluate. Being honest was the only way for a person to be truly evaluated. The test was very interesting and even though I did not learn anything new about myself it did confirm why I am in…
Analysing Essay Deconstruction
The quality, format, and use of communication conventions determines the effectiveness of a formal literary essay. In the essay Studying Literature in Grade 12, by Mrs. Phillips, the text demonstrates an example of a improper persuasive essay. This is shown through the content, incorrect language conventions, MLA citation and plagiarism, as well as the essay structure. Without these details one cannot achieve an effective essay.
