SELF REFLECTIVE COVER LETTER a. Through out the writing process I have had an inner struggle many times. I struggle the most when I revise a paper, in the revision process I am trying to make my writing the best that I can. Through out the process I struggle with what I want to add or delete from a piece. The background that I used in writing was a combination of what I had learned in previous English classes, and your class. The textbook is a very useful tool that I used every time I wrote. I would look up the genera that my piece was in and then follow the guidance given by the book. When we did peer review I didn’t seem to gain much out of it because everyone in my group would not criticize me enough. They gave my little hints of what I could improve on but I didn’t feel like peer review helped my writing much. When we had in class discussions I felt that they really helped me clarify to myself what I wanted to say in my papers, it was one of the most useful tools that I can think of. b. Before this class I didn’t really care about weather my writing was “good writing” but through this class I found that the writing process is truly a process. You must struggle with many things before you say that you have a final piece of writing. Now I view good writing as a piece that has been struggled with so much that you can’t find anything else to change and so the paper is the best that it can be. c. Like I said before I didn’t get much feedback so it didn’t really have to worry about struggling my way through that. Most of the peer review I got came from my family and friends; they were too kind to really help me change the piece too much. d. I did hours of research, and I feel that it shows in my writing. The class discussions on research were hard to follow until you showed us in the lab how to do those things. I used goggle my whole high school career and now that you have showed me the other search engines I feel that I have been greatly helped. These are very good tools that I wish I had found about earlier. I tried to build up my creditability by sharing specific examples in each piece. The text on research I found to not be as good as your advice. e. No, I feel that if anything my documents are too few. f. At the beginning of this class I felt that everyone had a step ahead of me. I was fresh out of high school and my writing in high school was my worst subject. After using the text and advice that I have received from you and the class I feel that I am growing a little as a writer. A good example of this is all of my research; in my senior English class I wrote a research paper. Looking back on it none of the research was any good. I have learned how to use better tools and have thus improved as a writer. I feel that my research is rhetorical and that all of it helps strengthen my points and creditability.
