Letter to senator
In my English class I wrote a letter to the senator about cloning and whether it should or should not be legal. This assignment is valuable for my future because this is something that people want in the future, and I am talking about the risks and effects that this may cause in the future. This project will help me write better letters in the future, and I believe I will also get much better in writing more professional and harder work.
This project is called ‘Cloning letter’ that was a letter for the senator. We had to give her our opinions on this issue and whether or not it should be legal. I stated my own ideas and opinions on this issue, and gave good supportive information to why it should not be legal. In this assignment got to talk about things I found on online sources and also listed my own ideas and opinions on this cause. I gave clear sources, and great detail about the subject, and I believe writing letters or essays like this one are really good for writing and for learning. I found good evidence to support my ideas and had to do a lot of research to understand what is really happening behind all this and why people want it. Learned more about cloning and its pros and cons after doing this letter. My work shows and tells me I'm getting better in writing and in making more professional work.
“Incorporating information and technology in a dynamic world” is one of the SLO’s I saw on my letter because I used my own ideas and personal thought and opinions to incorporate it and know how this will affect the future and in real life. Also, “using higher order thinking skills to solve problems” was one other use as my SLO’s because used what I already knew and added it to my letter. I believe I could have done a better job if I would of added more detail to my writing.
In conclusion, I have learned how to write more professional looking essays/letters, etc and also how to improve my writing skills in English. Some good skill I believe that I learned in my English class are good writing, a clear focus, and more great idea that will become very useful and helpful for me in the future.
Kite Runner Essay
In English class, we read a book titled “The Kite Runner”, and I have to say that at first the story was really boring, or at least not very interesting, nothing like what I enjoy reading. This essay I wrote was to talk about the hero of the story, Amir, and how he came along his journey in The Kite Runner.
In The Kite Runner essay I talked about the long way that Amir had to go through to be able to end his journey at the end of the story. I thought this book was very interesting once I got to the end because it really made sense and the story and meaning behind it was really surprising to me, almost as if it wore a real life movie.
In conclusion, I believe I used mastering skills, since I think I did a good job writing this and also because this will help me in the future, since writing essay will be big in the future for me in college. I enjoy writing things that interest me and things that are well explained, so they can easily be written well by me, so this story I enjoyed at the end.
