After taking this course, I am more confident in my writing.I feel like I know what I need to do to correctly follow the prompt/criteria.
It was overwhelming to me to have to write a multi-page essay. The short writing assignments helped me analyze texts without a required page length.
With this lack of pressure, I was able to think freely and go on and on.
I believe that reading will help me better connect with literature and help me better familiarize my writing.
I am looking forward to seeing how I will continue to improve next semester in English 102.
I felt that my analysis part of my essay was very weak.
I also failed to connect each of my body paragraphs to my thesis and idea of the author’s main point.
I feel that my new thesis helped build a more effective argument.
The difference in both effort and ability to better analyze and connect to the text made my essay much stronger than before.
Rather than revising my essay, I felt I would be better off re-writing the entire essay with a fresh start.
First, I reread the poem and went into a deeper thought about my interpretation of the poem hoping that this procedure would improve my writing process; I was right.
