This class has not really been too different from any of my other English classes. We read stories and we wrote papers. Thatís about how they have all been.

Personally, I do not really feel as if I have benefitted much from the class. I knew how to read and analyze already. I also knew that sources used in a paper should be recent and relevant unless the paper is about the past. I do feel that I have learned, from my first paper, that I should analyze what I am writing as I go along, and that I should ask myself more questions about what I am writing. But those are just things that I knew and needed reiterated.

I feel that I benefitted least from reading the Boyle stories. While some of them were good reads, they had no point in the class except to give us something to do. As a research writing class I do not see how they tied in. My only thought is that it could have been to help us see what questions we could ask ourselves as we go along and find our research. Even though we did not discuss questions about the stories unless we were doing the writing essays. I just cannot really see how they tie together.

In some ways it did, in other ways it did not. I do believe that I am a little better at research writing now, but I never really was bad (despite my first paper- I did it all in one night). For the most part, the class was interesting though. We were always laughing which is a lot better than just sitting in class listening to a teacher lecture the whole time. It helps you keep your attention where it should be.

      English 1200 this semester have been different than most other English classes Iíve had before for a few reasons. The major reason was because it was research based. My other English classes were... more

      I would say compared to other English classes I have taken, this one has helped me in some of the areas I have struggled with in English. I see that being able to use research tools that ECU provides ... more

      This English class has been different from others because of the in-class discussions for one. The sarcasm and joking gives it a laid back atmosphere where we can feel comfortable. I didn't stress as ... more
