i think my friedman essay was my best. i put alot of thought into it and it is organized well in my opinion

Hmmm. This will be a tough call. I found every one of those essays a challenge. Again, it’s nice to take the time to reflect though. My prediction--- the majority will say they had the least challenging time with the first essay.

I put a lot of effort and time into all my essays, but I liked my green asparagus vs green money one the best.

JCampos said...

Yeah this is another one of Mr. Peters traditions. Looking back at our essays and nitpicking at our strong points. I think this is a good way of making future essays a lot better.

I like doing these revisions because it helps me review my strength and weaknesses on my papers. Dianna your title is very catchy it makes me want to ready your paper.

Dianna said...

LOL Thank you Eric! I love thinking of titles for my papers, if you dont have a good title readers get turned off...

Titles are the hardest part of my paper by far. I think the Nickel and Dimed essay was the least challanging because Peters really helped us lay out that first essay.

Really? My nickel and Dimed essay was my worst by far. I thought it was the easiest topic, but I had a hard time putting it all together. And saving it 'till the last minute didn't help either =]

SamWofford said...

Oh yeah my weakest essay was the nickle and dimed one, the last one was my strongest one or so its turning out.

Lucas said...

I didn't like any of my essays really. Mostly because of the subjects I guess. I found the books to be way to liberal for my liking.

JLYNN said...

My Angela Whitiker essay is definitly way better then my other two.. I don't even want to talk about my Friedman essay. Not so good.

Amy said...

I would say that my Angela Whitiker essay is the weakest by far. I dont know if it is because it seemed so rushed, or i just didnt have much too say. Maybe it was just a mixture of both. I was having troubles connecting it all. Maybe it is just me.

I agree with Eric, I enjoy revising my paper. More often than not I end up rewriting the entire thing. My paper always ends up being better the second time I write it. I was working on revising one of my essays and I took a sharpie and started crossing out the stuff that I wasn't going to use. By the time I got to the second page and realized that I wasn't going to use anything on it, I decided to start over.

Friedman essay-best by far, N&D-passion but not enough evidence. Angela..ohhh Angela. Not too sure how that one will turn out. The past two weeks have been crazy and I'm hoping it won't effect my writing too much.

kristina.s.ballasiotes said...

I do have to say that my Angela essay is my wearkest. I didnt feel prepared to write it. It just came up so fast. I have to say im glad its over.
