These are some really good questions but why are they all numbered #1?

For the first essay we had, I didn't put much work into it. So when I got it back I wasn't surprised on the grade I got. Though, on the second essay I received a score I wasn't expecting. I guess I am revising my second essay.

Making the revision worksheet due on thurday is good because that way we can focus more on the actuall revision that way we have more time to research

Anna said...

I'm finding this revision a lot harder than I found it last quarter. This class wasn't quite as helpful when it came to feed back. It seemed more survive on your own than lets learn this together. But I truly believe I did better this quarter than the last.

I think in the end, the essay that im going to revise is the one that i got the lowest grade on, because I can improve more there than other essays. I cant decide if this is bad or not: just basing it off of grades instead of looking for the one i can do best on.

I am sooo happy that the portfolio isn't due until Thursday. I have to work tonight and I didn't know how in the world I was going to be able to finish it.

I thought my best essay was the one I recieved the lowest grade on. And that the one I'll mention in the assignment. Two more assignments, a rewrite and were done. I'll be glad when this week is over. Check it out....I have spent almost 100 hours between the Math center and the Writting center. As of today 97 hours and 37 min. That is nucking futs!!!!

I think that these are good questions to ask ourselves as writer. I liked my TWIF paper the best, but in he beginning it was the book I hated the most. B*O*R*I*N*G! But the further we got into the book, the more I understood the concepts and they made sense to me.

Honestly with these questionaires I never keep waht all my peer editors (other students) papers that say what they think about my paper. So I just go by memory with the worksheet but I always remember the jift of what is wrong with my paper cause I am always trying to improve my writing. I think these questions help to a certain extent by making us think about what we do need to improve on and elaborating on it.

didin't we already get a worksheet for this thing? or did it change in someway...anybody know because i really don't want to read through it. And did he say that the due date was changed?

Savannah Wilkerson said...

Yeah I wrote like two and a half pages worth of answers to these questions.. I guess I just had a lot to say eh?

katie said...

I found that the review worksheet was a lot harder and much more time consuming then the cover letter.

After going through this assignment, it actually persuaded me to do a different essay than i had planned. Looking at the essay to make up from this new view made the one i originally picked seem to easy to be worth fixing.
