English 126 Reflection

When  I  first  had this class,  I  really  had  great expectations and things I didn’t get to do as much in  English  125.  As  I  am  coming closer to  the end of  my  semester as  a  freshman, I  will  try to  keep in  mind  when we were assigned  variety of  reading  works  and  2  essays,  with one  research paper,  I  will try to  take in  the  different types in how to address  the question very  thoroughly  and finding some way to find a theme within the assignment, and get  secondary  sources from a  scholarly journal  site.

I also learned from great professors like  (Prof. Namphy and Abbott) whenever we are doing any  essay, and if we  happen to like a quote by the person of the book or  article, we have to try to give  credit  to  the  author  by  putting quotation marks whenever  we  get any quote that is not ours. I really have to admit that  I  really loved  this  class in  particular  because  even though  Prof.  Abbott, is a new  professor at  York  College, I  really like how she  tells us when she writes stories  herself, she always proof reads it and  peer  reviews with everyone  so she can learn from her mistakes, and when  I  first heard we had to  do  peer  reviews in class, I  was  at first  confused,  because I  have never done it before,  and when I  finally got used to it after a  while, I would have a  different  reaction  and  to me it was very unique  having the  privilege of  reading  other  classmates’  paper and them reading my paper, and every time  I  would try  to take  everyone’s  suggestions and comments  to improve my  paper  even  more.  There was another time where   we met in the library to help us with citations and how to have access to scholarly journals where Du Si was nice enough to take his time and help us with any confusions we may have and how to have access when offline.  

 Another reason why I really enjoyed this class is because in my first semester in English 125, I was always afraid to raise my hand because I was afraid I would say something stupid, and then in English 126, I always raised my hand and  I  really  loved  participating, and at the end I wanted to  finish  strong  by coming to class everyday, doing class  assignments, participating, and doing the three writing assignments which were apart of  the rest of  the  requirements.  When I go to  graduate York  College in the future and when I am doing my job that I will really be passionate about, I want to try to work with people, where I will try to improve in my writing more further so people don’t judge me based on how I write or how I  present myself to  them in a good manner when I  speak in front of  people.
