Unit one also taught me to reevaluate how important certain priorities when it came to writing. I learned from the other unit one authors, Joseph M. Williams and James E. Porter, that when an essay is read by someone who is looking for grammatical error or plagiarism instead of content, they will often find the error and ignore the content. Although I do still know the importance of grammar and originality, this class and the grading style has let me put those constructs in the back seat until the editing process, instead of making them something I had to constantly worry about. I don’t believe that good writing revolves around grammar, but rather how well your words can convey a message to the intended audiences.

Where there are gaps in the responses of the other characters the reader must imagine what is being said themselves in order for the text to make sense.

An illustration of this technique is Hamid’s conclusion of
Through their experiences there were many comparisons to suggest but some stood out more than others; such as, how each writer grew up learning do deal with their family and their English, and on that note what they are doing now to understand how their English language as a second language affects others. The first of the differences was experiences in family life. Each of the writers had very different experiences when it comes to family. Amy Tan had a term she explained as “different English” where Richard Rodriguez had a term he explained as “family quietness”. The difference in the two is that although Amy’s mother did have a hard time speaking the language clearer that the average English speaker she was able to have a language with her family that was English but they had a certain bond with it.
While providing his overall purpose and what he hopes his reader do as result of reading Freakonomics. “It has to do with thinking sensibly about how people behave in the real world… You might become more skeptical of the conventional wisdom; you may begin looking for hints as to how things aren’t quite what they seem... You may find yourself asking a lot f questions” (209 -210). Here, Levitt simply want people to behave correctly with common sense.

ENSP 703 At the beginning of classes in ENSP 703 I had simple goals that I want to reach, because this subjects it enhancing reading skills to improve writing abilities and improving character.

A common problem is not answering the question – you need to spend some time understanding each word in the question and make sure what you write is answering the question and just something you would like to say. Focus of Assignment and Structure Introductions These require a lot of care – the function of an introduction is to tell the reader what you are going to do – a very short summary of your answer, points you consider important, maybe some definitions – but it must give the reader some idea of where you are going. It provides criteria that the reader uses to judge whether you have achieved your goal – that is answer the question. Some writers launch straight into answering the question – leaving readers wondering where this roller coaster was going. To fix this 1. read other peoples introductions (and Abstracts), 2. identify what the argument is going to follow then read and see if you are correct.
The opposite learning styles, involving listening and verbal skills, are more difficult for me. I would much rather learn how something works by using it than by listening to someone tell me how it works. When any of my teachers stand in front of the classroom and just reads form the text book. This type of teaching is my kryptonite, the words just pass right through me. To help me my learning process in class's like that i need to recreate the lectured material using my own visual tools and adapt my teacher's preferred teaching methods to my preferred learning styles.

Teaching students to read and learning to read is an intricate task. Most children enter school with a considerable amount of competence in their spoken language but have little knowledge of how to read and write. There are many diverse approaches used to teach language and literacy skills and a lot of debate has arisen on how to best teach beginning reading.
