During the first week of school, as a class we talked about how there is always room for improvement in our reading and writing capabilities. We discussed that in order for us to succeed in our AP lit class, we would have to do a lot of reading and writing to improve our skills. That was why we all signed up for that class, we want to improve our reading and writing so that we are better prepared for college. Improvement is one of the main topics that was brought up during this past week. Another important thing we had talked about was ourselves as readers and writers. Each of us students had written a couple paragraphs describing our reading and writing experience. Those two topics relate because everyone, no matter how talented, can improve their reading and writing skills. There is always room for improvement.
On Friday we watched a video that showed college students talking about how they learned that they had much to learn when it came to writing in college, even though they had won awards for being such great writers in high school.
Something I found that might prove itself useful to someone out there who would like help with writing is a website that has lots of tools that could definitely be helpful to anyone writing. On this website there are many links to other websites that can help with grammar and other writing skills. There are also tips and lists of common errors that may assist anyone writing.
Just like anything else, it is important to keep practicing reading and writing because there is always room for improvement.
