This semester in writing 10 I have been acquired new skills. I have improved my writing skills significantly. Before I used to write c average papers and now I am at a B + with my writing. The different methods we went over in this class have stuck in my head to help my sentence structure. My reading has improved since the beginning. I have been able to keep up with all the reading and understand what is going on. Sometimes I still get lost in what I am reading and get confused. The main ideas is easy to identify in the first book we read and then I was between two ideas for the last two novels. I have been able to pace my reading so that I do not take as long as I used to read. When I do the reading response I summarize what I have read but sometimes I feel that I am just repeating what I just read. Rereading my work I have realized how to simply paraphrase what I read.
Group Led Discussions have be fun to listen because it let me understand more what I had read the previous night. I compared my thoughts with the leaders of the group presenting to see if I missed something when reading. Sharing the ideas that are in my head to paper and everyone in the class has become easier. Some things that I think in my head do not always come out of my mouth or hand the same way. Now that I am improving others can relate to my thoughts. Comparing and contrasting has been a strength of mine, so when we had to compare a novel and movie I knew exactly what to say and how to explain it. The presentation I did with my group was challenging when we first thought about what to do, then it became simple because we knew what we had to do.
