Today I attended my first class of English 185. I learned a lot of new things including the material for this class including books I’ll need to purchase, expectations for this year, and setting up my blog. I will have to purchase An Insider’s Guide to Academic Writing: A Rhetoric and Reader and They Say I say: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing, 3rd edition. We were assigned an interview project where we have to interview another scholar. I plan to interview my RA, Victor.
I am very excited to write in my own blog for this course. I had a blog last year in one of my high school courses and I enjoyed writing about different types of topics. This high school course was called “iQuest”, which was an internship based class. We had topics such as expectations for the year, internship updates, and some times even free writes. I had a great time filling out my blog in high school and I am even more excited this year to get another blog.
We were also assigned a literary narrative where we write about a skill we have, and about how we acquired that skill. I have not decided which skill I am going to choose, but I have a good idea of where it is going. I am excited to write this narrative because it is a good opportunity to write about my skillset!
