The objective of this essay was to write about what I learned during this semester. Also, reflecting back on my strongest and weakest paper.
The assignment had many different prompts to choose from, but I chose to write about a "first." The first i wrote about was the first family member I was close to, passing away.
There were many Prompts for this essay. I chose to write about an unforgettable childhood experience. This was a story about a journey to school, without the bus.
For this essay, I chose to write about if homework was detrimental to students. Most teachers disagree with my opinion, but as a student it is logical.
Purpose of this assignment was a group effort to summarize an article, including the main points the author is trying to make. The article I summarized was "The Ugly Truth About Beauty" by Dave Barry.
This summary was an individual assignment. Again, restating the main points of the article. I chose to summarize "Eating Breakfast Can Lead to Weight Gain--or Not."
This was a full summary response about either Summary #1 or Summary #2. I chose Summary #1 which was about the untold truth about beauty.
This essay was to write about an interview. I chose to write about the Switchback Kids.
This assignment was to take a side with one point of view of your choice of topic. I chose to write about advanced placement classes, and how they are beneficial to high school students.
