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.

My grammar has a lot to be improved upon and I always seem to be at a loss for words. with that said, writing is a bit of a challenge for me.

VAR Reflection Assignment I did my VARK test and my result was that my learning style was Kinesthetic. I expected to be Read/Write because I noticed that I remember the best when I read over few times and make main points. Vark Inventory Reflection According to the VARK learning style inventory, my preferred learning styles are read and write.

I do not have any misconceptions about writing I'm just very out of practice and I'm sure with time it will become a lot easier and feel more natural. I need to focus on staying on topic, grammar and punctuation. I tend to go off topic once I get another idea something similar but not part of the idea I was going for in my paper. In order to improve this weakness is by keeping my ideas organize will help me stay on topic After reading chapter one it gave me a new motivation to learn about writing. I have always just gave myself the excuse that I am not a good writer and that’s how I am going to live.
My second issue would be my ability to proofread. I always miss something when I proof read, once my other half reads it, he finds it right away, but I just cannot see all of my own errors. I would say my third problem is tone. Sometimes I am not sure which tone to use and if it is being conveyed correctly. I plan to work on all of these things, I am sure this class will help me learn all the skills needed to make my papers better.
Before this class had began, I was accustomed to writing essays with narrow ideas. Whenever I would write, I would discuss the topic briefly and move on to the next topic. In English 1301, that all changed. I was no longer "telling" the reader events that were occurring. Instead, I was able to describe in detail the actual events that occurred in my life.

When I came across anything I thought was relevant in the textbooks I stuck post-it notes around my desk stating briefly what it was and where I found it. Deciding which points to use in my essay was difficult and did result in a considerable amount of deleting and re entering information. Using the textbook I found ir easier to read the conclusion at the end of the chapter first, followed by the summaries at the end of each unit and leaving the beginning til last. This gives me a better understanding of what concepts im covering. I am still finding the referencing process quite difficult but I am hoping this will get easier as the course
Sometime, they even begin the final project without the instructor’s authorization and proper guidance forgetting that without the instructions they might give the wrong information. An online student also expects services at all time of the night or day. They need to understand that waiting is part if teaching and learning for the internet speed is not the same as the course speed.

Therefore, during middle school and High school I was able to use what I learned in my previous years to write paragraphs, essays and research papers.
