This English class was different than others in my class due to a couple of reasons. First and foremost, the attitude of the classroom was a lot different than most classes I have taken. It was much more relaxed compared to others, which I believe, is because of the lack of ďrestraintsĒ on the English vocabulary. Another part that made this class different than other classes I have taken is because on most class days, we would do a free write. To me it kind of felt like it was a journal I was keeping up with in a way. I donít know if it was the same for other people but I enjoyed free writing in class, it felt like a stress reliever actually. Another part that was different about this class was how many short stories we read. In my previous English class we didnít do much reading at all and it was just learning grammar and writing papers in groups. I feel that this class has benefitted me the most in the way of learning how to properly write a college level paper. I feel that I know what I need to improve on when writing papers and how to better get my point across. On the other side of the topic though, I believe that I least benefitted from all the short stories we read. Personally, I did not see the reason behind reading all the stories. All I saw was analyzing the short stories after we read them, or being quizzed to see how much detail we read from the story. I enjoyed the stories. I just feel like they are not as beneficial to improving writing skills in this class. As to whether or not this class met my expectations I set at the beginning of the semester, I have to go with yes. On the yes part It helped me improve my writing skills which is what I expected of the class. The class has been difficult at times but I enjoyed it overall. Although Iím hoping I wonít have to take another English class while Iím here. Thanks for the great semester!
