Draft of Final Reflection

I have been added to use the things I have learned in this semester transfer my knowledge to other writing situation in my community by teaching and give advice by encouraging them to other who don’t know about things that is so important. Time management was one of my skills that development me to do my work. To compare/contrast the work I did early in the semester I think this was fun but now is challenging and exciting. In this class, I remember some of my assignments that I write makes me feel like I was diminishing something bigger about me. My favorite assignment Unit 1 my experience with various “English’s”: to be honest, I used to feel left out because most of the time when I know the answer in my native languages I can’t raise my hand and say it because I didn’t know how to say it in English. To be honest, I used to feel left out because most of the time when I know the answer in my native languages I can’t raise my hand and say it because I didn’t know how to say it in English. “Tardy/Seven and a half minutes of writing”: My point of views on education is always learning how to overcome whatever comes our way, acquiring particular knowledge or skills, as for a profession. Education allows us to explore every aspect of life and can lead us to anywhere we want to go in life. And my least favorite assignment is “Understanding Genre Awareness” because I didn’t understand at the first place. Some notable lessons that have stuck me after completing certain assignments is unit 3 because in my research I can’t choose any kind of genres to find source with.

The genres changed my writing, reading, and thinking of having visual based and structure and organization to criteria for success which help me evaluate my own developmental writing. Genres help me for some skills of identifying differences and similarities are explicit noticing, to become good writer. The decisions that I make in my assignments about content and design by informing, describes, and explains in my write to have the basis and produce in my work so people can understand. Like “Blog Post” I write about my lost interest in something that is dancing was every important to me but I lost as my dream job. My early assumptions/beliefs about myself and writing wasn’t consummate because writing was something I hate to enjoy, but life goes on and I have changed myself to accept to write more and feel to do. My experience reviewing my assignments doesn’t need to rework because If I want to write, I take all my time to focus on my assignments or any time I think I should add (evidence) and words. I learn to challenge my own ideas in my write. Yes, the peer feedback that stands out to me was given to me that my ideas and my writing were excellent as feedback for my work.

The particularly challenging for me in our course this semester was unit 2 to unit 3 because I had to create a project on my own that is How does pollution affect global climate change? I do research to find information and genres. If I find information that goes completely against my expected research I am not going to throw it away. Instead, I will challenge my own assumptions. I overcome it in my source research. Some read assignments that I think connect to my life like “Shitty first drafts by Anne Lamott” “I know tells me that he sits down every morning and says to himself nicely, “It’s not like you don’t have a choice, because you do — you can either type, or kill yourself” sometimes I feel the same way about myself like why I have to do this even if I don’t want to or should I go somewhere that one-body isn’t here so I can be free but you just can. “You need to start somewhere. Start by getting something — anything — down on paper” I agree with this because in life you have to start somewhere. Even if you don’t know what to do, just do what you like to do so one day you can end up being acquainted with some things in your life.

Those kind of quote helps me not to give up and support me to move forward. “The purpose of education, finally, is to create in a person the ability to look at the world for himself, to make his own decisions, to say to himself this is black or this is white, to decide for himself whether there is a God in heaven or not”. For me personally I don’t think we decided to know if God in heaven or not, but I think most of the people believe if God in heaven or not. “It’s because over the twenty years we’ve been together, I’ve often used that same kind of English with him, and sometimes he even uses it with me. It has become our language of intimacy, a different sort of English that relates to family talk, the language I grew up with.” Because I feel the same way with my friends compared to other people because me and my friends leaned English when we come to this county so the way I speak with them is different because we fixed others languages that we speak with English “Mother tongue” by Amy Tan. I can’t believe we start with COVID-19 and end with him, this time was every difficult for my family because all the money they save to do something they spend to buy us the things that we need like Wi-Fi. Some time I feel easier to do my work because this is the first time in life to stay home to do an online class, but on the other hand, I liked it as another experience that I have in my life in history and I am thankful me and my family we still live right now.

Time Capsule

This semester I learned all like how to develop my writing and myself. I did achieve my goals and different goals by trust myself and follow what I have to do even this was a difficult time I thankful. The thing that surprises me to encountered along the way is how writing changed me too big this semester to enjoy writing. I have support from you professor Lisa Cole and classmate.
