When doing the Annotated Bib (yes, you should've been doing it by now), what resources have you found to be most useful? What types of sources have you encountered in your research? How has the information contained therein differed from source to source?
What are your impressions of the TC Boyle stories we have read so far? Which, if any, have you liked? Why? Which have you disliked? Why? Are there any stories you have seen/read in the book that we have not read yet (nerds) that you would like us to read/discuss?
My impression on the stories we have read and gone over so far is that there is more depth than meets the eyes when it comes to first reading it. I came to this realization when you assigned us our first in class reading essay and I did not know how to really answer the questions. The stories are also very strange.... more
What (if anything) did you find beneficial about the library instructional session? What topic have you chosen (final answer) for your Annotated Bib? Why did you choose this topic? Have a great (and safe) Spring break.
The library instructional session was extremely informational for me because I am not very good at researching in general, and I believe the research part was the reason for my poor grade in my last paper. I learned a lot that I can use for my next essay. The use of the many databases will be extremely helpful when I... more

In previous English classes, I have been exposed to an array of challenges from timed writing to public speaking assignments. I feel that Iíve been prepared adequately enough for college level English courses. In High School, I have had multiple research based writing and speaking assignments where I had to pick a... more
Describe your experience in previous English classes. What do you feel you benefitted least from? What do you feel you benefitted most from? What do you think will help you get the most out of this semester's class?
English has been one of my favorite classes ever since I was little. The concepts and freedom of imagination that writing can convey has always drawn me in. Overtime I have had many English classes that were not necessarily beneficial to me learning anything. For English I had teachers that did not put in a lot of... more
No Subject - Jennifer Hendricks,Fri Jan 31, 2014 4:36pm
English is the one topic that I have always struggled with. I am not the best at writing papers but when it comes to vocabulary quizzes in middle/high school that was the one thing I was good at. Every English class that I have taken has benefitted me in some way. Last semester when I took English 1100 with Mr. Andy... more
My previous English classes were very different from the English class I am in right now. High School English classes, in my dictionary, could be described as being ďa piece of cakeĒ. The curriculum was not too difficult and the teachers never made any assignments seem too important or overbearing. There was always... more
English was never the easiest subject to me. I am a math person. In high school, though, I managed it fairly well; I worked hard and exceeded requirements. Therefore, my lack of ability in the subject was often made up and I was able to stay at a decent A or B. In college, I hated English. Not only do I have to write... more
Throughout the course of my English 1100 class freshman year it was a constant battle to keep up with assignments. Each class it seemed as though we had another writing assignment that would be due the following class and most of the due dates consisted of preparing drafts for peer review. Some classes would consist... more
