What I Learned In High Class Essay

Dear Portfolio reader it has been an eye opening experience for my first year of college.. It has prepared me for future college years. College 90 has given me a book load of memories to share and live from. I have learned many skills throughout this course and I am ready for 101!
English 90 did not only refresh me of things I learned in high school but it has refined them. Using correct punctuation was an unclear problem I never could get a grasp on until English 90. Difficult tasks such as starting and ending my essays are a thing of the past. Now I know to brainstorm ideas and narrow them to a specific topic. Essays used to take me a plethora of hours to complete and now I know how to make an efficient outline that allows me to complete essays a significant amount. Keeping my work organized and functional was a key part of my success in English 90. Having an outline to guide me through the semester allowed

College English has less homework and builds up to one essay. The main thing I disliked in high school English was the overwhelming amount of homework given out per day. I am personally a more perfectionist kind of guy and love the amount of time we get working up to our final project which is our essays. One day to finish assignments and make it great was a difficult task to accomplish. Having multiple days taking steps such as brainstorming, outlining and making a rough draft have impacted my overall skills in general an incredible amount.
English 90 has been a joy to be in. My Teacher Miss Rasmussen, has been an incredible impact on my success. Her lectures are very thorough and I have learned something new every class period. The total atmosphere when I go to class is like nothing I have ever experienced. Most the people in my class enjoy it as much as I do which brings the work environment to life. It really has been a pleasure taking this class, but now It’s time to move

    I technically “finished” high school and now I’m taking a vocational nursing class. In my practical nursing class, I’ve learned many skills and techniques, but not only to use in the clinical setting, but in my daily life. As a matter of fact, I believe I learned more about myself while in this class than I learned in my whole life. For instance, I learned that I am a huge procrastinator. This class has taught me how to prioritize and problem solve. For example, I know I have a huge test coming up…

    realize that I wasn’t as good of a writer that I thought I was. Throughout the semester, my papers gradually improved in grades, but also in quality. Prior to this semester, I was unaware that visualization was even a thing, and thought that showing not telling was for frivolous floosies who didn’t know how to write anything meaningful. This class has changed my perspective on the importance of imagery and creating a better experience for the reader. The first paper I wrote for this class was the Name…

    As I began this course it was the one I was dreading the most. For as long as I remember I have been told my writing is terrible. As I began this course I realized it was not that I was bad at writing, it was the fact that I did not know correct mechanics or grammar and did not take it serious enough. I have learned so many new techniques and have improved as a writer. Although I will not say I love writing, I do not hate it. Within this class my best effort was for the personal narrative. I say…

I also learned how a computer system works, and what's the different between data and information to a computer, and how it processes data into information. One thing I didn’t know is all the different kinds of kinds of operating systems…

    I am rarely in the company of my nieces. In their presence, I bombard them with advice. Whether they need or want the guidance, I am not sure. I have never bothered to ask. Although the nieces that I speak of did not grow up with their fathers in the household, I believe they grew up loved and actually feeling loved, with no shortage of advice. Honestly, I do not think this flood of information is for them, it is for me. For that 12, 16, 20 and 25-year-old part of me that I did not leave behind.…

    Although I am only 18, many events in my life have changed the outlook I have on life for better or worse. I would have to say one experience I had in my high school years took both outlooks and tied them into one. Freshmen year I attended a small catholic school in Florida. Not being too excited about attending, my parents insisted because it was closer than the other local Catholic High School. Being extremely unhappy all year I think I learned my first invaluable trait: If you don’t look on the…

    What I’ve learned in high school is that you have to try your hardest and to turn in all your work and if you miss school it could be difficult to catch back up with. I learned that if you slack even the slightest it will bring you down dramatically although it may get rough or hard you should always put your all into the work you do because if you do not show some effort theirs a high chance the teacher won’t think you are trying. I learned that in high school things become much more difficult as…

    English wasn’t fun back in high school, but several years later when faced with writing my first essay in college it has been an experience. Whereas all writers have their own individuality, learning basic English rules will help your writing skills, given that I am a better writer for taking English 101. This class has impacted my writing skills by teaching me new skills on pre-writing and first drafts. My biggest issue with writing comes from not being a strong reader. I miss important details…
