Overall, my experience in English 1100 has been great. I have not achieved the grade that I was striving for, but I feel as if I learned a lot about writing that I did not already know. Hopefully, my writing skills are improving and my grade in 1200 will be better. The class was extremely fun! I never had any trouble getting to class. You never know what will be talked about in Mr. Bates class. It was nice getting to experience an English class with a teacher who could say and do what he wanted to. I came from a private school and if the teacher even took a breath incorrectly she would get in trouble. This felt more like an English class in my opinion. English should not be all about taking notes like it was in high school. It should be focusing on how to write better and more effectively. That is exactly how my 1100 class was. I have benefited from the tough grading. It has encouraged me to work harder and think out my thoughts more carefully. I realized I cannot procrastinate and I have learned how to manage my time better with my schoolwork. Also, I have learned to read stories for their hidden meaning, and not just because I have to read the story. It is sad, but true, in high school I never read anything I was assigned and was able to do well. Things have been different in college and shockingly I have learned that reading an assignment helps your understanding of the work. Areas I did not really benefit from is how to properly research a topic. For our most recent paper, I spent a lot of time doing pointless research, because I did not know what to do. I feel as if the paper would have been easier and less stressful if we would have spent one more class reviewing how to research a topic. This class has been my favorite class and I cannot wait to take English 1200 at 11:00 with Mr. Bates again next semester. Hopefully he feels the same about having me as a student.
