Overall I really enjoyed English 1200 this semester. I liked how the classroom environment was relaxed and we were able to have open discussions and could talk about anything, literally anything and everything. The talks at the beginning of class were so random, but always very interesting and entertaining. It was very beneficial for me to take the same teacher for English for both semesters. Taking the same teacher again I already knew a little about what to expect from the classroom environment and the style of teaching, and it helped a lot especially with being an English class, since it isnít my favorite subject and writing papers is probably my least favorite thing. Knowing how my teacher would be right from the beginning I knew I would be comfortable going to get help on my papers from the very first one. Unlike last semester, where I wasnít sure if I wanted to go to office hours to get help right away. I also found it beneficial to do the short 10-minute writing assignments in class. It allowed me to write freely, especially with the free writes. I was able to use that to write about something simple and easy that I wanted to write about instead of being told what to write about from a teacher. It also helped as a break from writing long research papers. I found writing the annotated bibliography to be very beneficial and helpful in finding future sources. It helped me to be able to evaluate the sources quickly and pick out the information that is of most use to me and the paper I am writing. Also after having to find 15 sources for that, finding 5 or 7 sources doesnít even feel like that much, and not something I worry about now. I have really enjoyed the time Iíve had in English this past semester. Having to do more research writing this semester, has really pushed me as a writer, and I think has made me a stronger writer and even though I may not enjoy writing these long papers I know I can do it now. Normally I never really enjoyed any English classes I had before but this class definitely changed that and a lot of that has to do with the relaxed and easy going environment in the classroom, we were able to have fun and learn at the same time.
