I considered a good writer to be anyone who could effectively convey a message to a reader. Since going through the first two units, I have learned that good writing is quite a bit more complicated. Author Keith Grant-Davie discussed how important to good writing it was to analyze your subject matter to understand who all of your possible audiences are and who you may be representing when writing your material, and to address all parties appropriately. If an author can do this effectively, I believe that it is a crucial part of becoming a good writer. Unit one also taught me to reevaluate how important certain priorities when it came to writing.

Garrett McCloud Writing and Composition II Professor Dilkes Me as a Reader and writer My experience as a reader and a writer is very interesting. A lot of the times when I write I usually have a very good understanding of what I read and write but sometimes I rush and do not go over what I write. As a reader I would take the insight of the author writings and then try to incorporate or compare it to my life to see how I can relate to it. Try to put it in my on perspective in order to have an idea of what theme should be for that paper. Learning about how the theme of your paper should be related back to in every paragraph is important to the flow of the paper.

The National Strategy ‘Talk for Writing’ is based on this but I don’t feel that it fully engages/enthuses teachers in the importance of daily storytelling or whether it has had a positive impact on Literacy learning in the classroom. 4.

Eng-101-001 What I Expect To Get Out Of Eng-101 Some of my expectations heading into ENG-101 are to learn how to begin writing a paper. I usually know what it is that I want to say, but I always find it difficult to locate that one particular sentence to begin my paper. Once I have the beginning, I feel better about putting my words together on paper. I also expect to learn how to organize my ideas and thoughts, and work on constructing my individual ‘voice’ on paper so it flows and makes sense to those who will be reading the paper. I have limited writing experience; my career paths have not required me to utilize my writing skills (or lack of).
