Honestly, this class was not at all hard. Every assignment was thoroughly explained including what Professor expects from us.
What was the most difficult part of the course? What should Ido to prepare for this part?
Three important things are: 1) Communicate with the professor 2) Do all your discussion posts 3) Always Revise your essays
What will you say are the three most important things I as a new student should know about ENG 111?
What would have you done differently if you had it to do all over again?
The only thing that you need to prepare for this class is answering all the discussion post thoroughly. This will help you getter a better understanding of that particular piece of reading. Another thing you can do is always email Professor with any questions you have. He is very good with responding emails quickly and is also very helpful. He answers questions clearing all the doubts. He even responds to our discussion posts to either improving our understanding or praising us when we do good.
Do you think English 111 has changed you as a student? I mean do you feel more or less prepared/confident/scared to death as a writer after this semester?
Communicating is important because it will give you a better understanding when you'll get stuck. Discussion posts are helpful as you will write essays on one of those topics. the thorough understanding you have of those topics, the better your essays will be. Revising essays is very important - it's not a lot of work since the comments provided by the professor are very vivid - as it improves your grades and you will learn about your mistakes and fixing them.
Next year with English 112, I expect to do better than my current performance. I a less nervous now than I was for this class because this class has spiked my confidence. I am really looking forward to next semester.
If given chance to do it again, I will start by taking up extra credits offered for doing extra peer critiques. Another major thing that I would like to redo will be starting the assignment on time so I do not feel rushed and can better. I would also like to put a bit more effort into some of my discussion posts.
I am very glad that I took the decision of taking this class online with Professor Weaver. Professor, I really want to thank you for making this class very fun and exciting for me. I really appreciate you helping me whenever I needed and also praising me when I did something good. That really motivated me.
Yes, this class has definitely changed me. I am now a little bit confident in my writing. I now believe that I can write. One reading that we did called, "Shitty first draft" helped me a lot in particular. That article gave me a boost in confidence. I am still not a great writer; however, I am not scared of writing anymore. This class will change you in many positive ways and every week is going to be stress free even with all the work.
