By joining this English 101 class, I feel that I learned a lot of things. Though sometimes I did not understand some of the things that being delivered during the class, I feel blessed that I can learn on how to write correctly. I found out that I need to make a kind of brainstorming before I make the essay. After that, I need to make a rough draft, which will be
At this point, I think it depends on what are your reading interests and how reading meets your interpretation skills to be understood or to get you involved on its field. I have always been a thinker, but throughout my coursework, I have sharpened my critical analysis skills and I like to read more books than I did before. First time that I started to read it was in my first grade. I was so excited at the time and I felt like a hero. My first teacher, Luljeta, was a big help to put me in the track.
My English is so poor; I want to improve my English. First time, I avoided classes that involved a lot of writing, as I was still intimidated by past failures. But when poor writing began to affect my grades in other courses, I decided to take a composition class. Now, I use my On Course textbook in my English class, this journal will help me about self-awareness. I began to see how negative scripts could cause problems.
Nicole Vega September 8, 2010 English 10 Period 1 Last year in English My academic performance last year in English was pretty good. I was impressed that every four marking periods I had the highest grade in my class. This made me realize that I did what I had to do with the help of my teacher. If I could accomplish this last year, I can accomplish it this year, on the other hand , I would still need help on some things. One goal that I would like to accomplish this year is learning how to write better.
Most ones I would have liked were too advanced for me, so I wouldn’t have been able to read them. Throughout my childhood reading was not my strong point in school, but I learned to be a much better reader. I have become a better reader now with lots of hard work and reading still affects my everyday life. Now a days I will sometimes read for fun and books for school too. During school when I read I sometimes struggle on larger words or ones I don’t know, but I work very hard and it pays off.
It’s whatever works best for the individuals. Every student should be taught on how to write notes. When our exams are near, the notes take a great place in helping us preparing for our exams. This saves up a lot of time then reading straight from the books. Notes also make you get organized and things start to make more sense than before.
The impromptu speeches I believe had a more effective and stronger impact in my experience . As we reviewed the chapters of our public speaking text, many chapters helped me deliver speeches and be more productively. But the two chapters I would say helped me the most would be Chapter 3 on Listening and Chapter 14 on Delivering the Speech. As quoted in our public speaking text, listening is the act of interpreting and evaluating what is being said. The reason I choose this chapter is because I'm a bad listener and I have a very low attention span.
Having an accent bothered me especially when people looked down on me because I was from somewhere else. I hated the fact that I sounded different. I tried speech and diction classes, but my “R’s” never went away. After a while I realized that my accent is nothing to be ashamed of, but something to be proud of. I was able to communicate in a foreign language which was a big achievement for me, so why would I care about my accent.
PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS 1 Running Head: PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS 1 Phonological Awareness PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS 2 Phonological Awareness (PA) has been a buzz word in preschool and elementary schools within the last decade. This attention is merited. Study after study has consistently linked the level of PA a child possesses prior to entering school to their ability to learn how to read and to their later reading development (Love and Reilly, 2007.) Research also revealed that PA was an essential skill for not only learning to read but also to write, and correctly spell. When PA has been part of a literacy program it has not only impacted future reading scores of children with written and oral language difficulties, it has also improved scores of children who have no problems with language (Shaywitz & Shaywitz, 2004, Schuele & Bondreau, 2008.)
I took the comments, criticism, and suggestions professor Underwood gave me on previous papers and put them into this paper. I also began to see changes within my grade because last semester my first rough draft grade was a C I believe but, this semester my rough draft grade was an A. When it comes to the quizzes, last semester online quizzes where questions based on the readings that we were covering. I never had a problem with these because as long as I read the required material I did really well on those
