This class has been very different from other English classes I have taken. I enjoyed English 1100 last semester and that why I chose to take English 1200 with the same professor. English 1200 has been different from English 1100 because English 1200 is all about research papers. Also, English 1200 is different from my high school English classes because I never had to write very much in high school and that is why I have struggled a lot this first year of college.
I have benefited from many aspects of this class. I like how we are always told exactly how to write our paper so there is no guessing and we spend time on useful things that will make out paper better. I feel that I have benefitted least from the stories in the Boyle book. I have never really understood how they pertained to our writing but I did enjoy reading them and going over them in class. Also, I enjoyed the writing exercises we had to participate in during class. It was always fun to write a quirky story and find out what the rest of the class wrote as well. The stories we wrote got out creativity flowing and helped me later in my writing to be able to trigger that part of my brain easily.
I knew from the beginning that this class would be difficult. For one, I hate eight am classes. I am not a morning person at all and it is hard for me to get motivated and get to class early. This is not good because attendance is a part of our grade. Also, I knew that I would have to devote a lot of time to the research papers because these papers would be more difficult because it is a higher level English. I regret not spending more time researching for my papers. Research papers are something that I struggle at because I am a big procrastinator and it is easy for me to sit down the night before and write a long paper but I quickly realized that I would have to do the research prior to that.
