This English class was much more relaxed than others I have experienced. I also did not feel like I was babied and had my hand held through the whole class. There were high expectations but not a lot of busy work that is frustrating to deal with. It was nice to be able to joke around and talk. I think that from the past two semesters, having Mr. Bates that I have learned a lot, mostly having to do with writing. I have never been a good and confident writer so getting feedback and constructive criticism was really nice and benefited me tons. I have improved my writing from the end of high school to now even though last semesters papers seemed better and I got better grades. I am more confident in my papers because of this class. I feel like now I have the foundation that I can take to be able to write good papers for other classes. There really is not something that I benefited least from during this class. I think that all the aspects of this class fit with each other and contributed in its own way to the overall class. The only thing I did not understand was if the free writes we would do and turn in during class counted. If I had to say something benefited me least it would have to be that because I am not a good storyteller or can make up situations. I think that I have met the expectations I set for myself in this class and I am proud. I really was dreading another English class because I do not like to read or write but I am glad I got Mr. Bates again. That was easier transition since I had a good idea of what the class was all about and the teaching style that was used. I also met my expectations by learning more about research papers and how to write them and also writing my first annotated bibliography. I was pleased with how that turned out since I went into the assignment blind. Over all Mr. Bates’ class has been a good experience and has taught me valuable and interesting things. I also really enjoyed the tone and humor used in class, it lightened the mood of English.
