In my past English classes, we actually didnít do a lot of writing assignments. All throughout high school, I probably wrote at the most 5 or 6 papers. I will admit I had probably the best teachers I couldíve possibly asked for. They used to really push us to be great writers. Even though we didnít have a lot of writing assignments, they still gave us great critiques and advice to better our writings. I would have to say the most beneficial thing about the classes, were actually having teachers who actually cared about your success and education. Whether it was your success in English or in other classes, they still pushed you to succeed in all that we would accomplished. One thing that was least beneficial, was the lack of writing assignments we were given. I received nothing below a C, and with that I only received one C in any writing assignments. I feel if we were able to write more essays, then that would have made a lot more people enjoy writing just as much as I do. They writing assignments we had, were reading things out of the textbooks and answering questions about the reading. We also had some assignments dealing with poems and creating poems. I feel we focused more on poems and creating them than anything else. Almost every day we had either a small or large assignments dealing with poems. After a while we kind of got tired of even looking at poems. But when it all comes down to it, I really do enjoy writing and I think I had a good experience in my writing classes in high school. In this new semester, I feel that itís going to be that major push to really make me a great writer and understand a lot more things. Just from the last few class periods in your class, I can tell you are a teacher who pushes his students to the max. If we give good work, then you will max the same amount of critique and honesty. Overall I feel that Iím going to step up in my writing ethic and ability more to where I will be to really be affected by my writing. Iím going to be able write and take what I write with me along in life.
