I have to say that this class is so different than those ESL classes I have ever taken in the past. A few thing that have been learned to this point are how to format an essay paper by the Modern Language Association or MLA guidelines, and fairly recently we started to learn how to write by the new guidelines that the Modern Language Association assigned in the year for the seventh and eighth edition of MLA formatting.
With this being my first year of college I was really nervous.
My outlook on student learning and my empathy towards students has also been positively affected by the program. Through my class Assessment for Learning I learned not all assessments yield similar information.
I learned several skills and techniques this semester to improve my writing skills for the future. Professors often ask students to write reading reflections. It requires a lot of student 's persistence, enthusiasm, and self-studying I still have a little ways to go to become the best writer I can be but by taking this course I have been able to expand and learn as a writer, editor, and analyzer of my work, peers work, and academic work.
The point is to recapture practice experiences and think about them critically in order to gain new understandings and so improve future practice This course really helped me reach this goal and to make sure I always think about the audiences for each topic that I write.
Another thing that as taught was how to communicate in an effective way both in a verbally and written format I run my papers through paperrater. A lot of what I learned in high school was completely different than that of my college English course.
