Overall the the most important thing I have learned in this class this year are how to write an essay in MLA format. These skills I have learned in this class will help me in the future by writing a lot of essays when I go to college/university
In English II, we utilize the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts (ELA) to reach the grade-level expectations in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing to prepare for college or any career. This is very important because with this help, we can write out resumes, essays, letters, and more.
The project, or final of English was about writing an persuasive/argumentative essay about Immigration of you agree or disagree in any way. In order to write a good essay, we had to write a 500-750 words, had to have 5 paragraphs or more if we had to, and to have good evidence(s) and especially had to be in MLA format. In order to make my essay, first, I started to write my outline with the help of "SIRS Issues Researcher: Research Guide for the Critical Thinker" but before that, I had to pick a topic related to immigration, so I picked "Jobs for Immigrants." After picking the topic, I had to pick a side, more specifically, should immigrants remain still working in the United States or not? In my opinion, I picked yes. After finishing writing on my outline, it was time to rewrite and arrange everything I wrote in the outline into Google Docs, where I wrote my essay on. After writing, even putting graphs into my essay, and rereading it to make sure everything was clear to me, I submitted my essay to Google Classroom and let my teacher do the checking and grading! During I was writing, I learned with the help of the outline, it was so much easier to write your ideas and transfer them into the essay. When my English teacher corrected and graded them, even though my grade was a 92/100, it seems I have a lot work to do. My work tells me even though my grade is pretty good, my writing needs to get better.
I have demonstrated "Representing self, school, and community through personal responsibility and global citizenship" and also demonstrated "Thinking critically and creatively." I have demonstrated both of them by expressing how I feel while writing the essay and saying my point of views while not using any kind of pronouns on my essay. I have also been researching reliable facts and putting the basic facts first and going all the way down writing some interesting facts and expert opinions so readers can think about it once they have read it. The SLO I think I need to improve is "Mastering skills needed in career and college" because when I saw the revised version, I saw a lot of changes and corrections. This means I need to practice a lot on my grammar in order to write important things.
The two things I have learned in English class in 2018 is writing an outline makes my essay much more easier and when my essay was checked, I learned that I have so many things to learn, like my organization and grammar. All these skills I have learned in English class will help me in the future by helping write for projects for college/university, letters, essays, and important things like resumes.
