Throughout my academic life I will need these skills to apply them to an assignment that I will have to do. I cannot turn in an assignment with poor grammar or punctuation and expect to be able to receive a high grade. Also at some point I will have to write an essay or something for a major grade. And how can one write an essay if they don’t have the proper sentence skills? Without these skills I do not see anyone getting a good grade. * How do the skills apply to your professional life?
The skills that I completed in the Writing Path Builder were: Sentence skills, The Craft of Writing, Punctuation, Mechanics, and Spelling. These are all important skills that need to be applied in everybody’s professional life. What kind of employer would want a person working for them that could not spell or form a complete punctuated sentence? Without these skills you can conclude that you will not have a high paying job with benefits. * Were you surprised by the results? Why or why not?
I was very surprised by my results in the Writing Path Builder. I was very confident in most of my answers but there were also a few that I was a little weary of on. And those would be the ones I would need to work on a little more. But to finish the path builder and it to tell me I have mastered all the skills it challenged me with was an amazing feeling.
