INTRO:Just a little bit about me…

December 2, 2011 Leave a comment

For starters I’d like to say my full name is Evanjelina Arredondo but my family and friends call me Jela. I’m not sure how that nickname got stuck to me but it just did. Each year I get older on February 6, at exactly 7:42 am to be exact. My whole life I have lived in a small suburb called Maywood. I love to play softball and watch baseball. I’m a big cubs fan. Go Cubs! Somethig I do not like is bacon. I know some people are big lover of bacon, on the contrary I  don’t.  Go Cubs! As you might tell, I’m not the best writer but hopefully this class helps me improve my writing skills.

LESSONS LEARNED ABOUT R.A-Rhetorycal Analysis 101!

October 14, 2011 Leave a comment

  A rhetorycal analysis differs from an objective summary because a rhetorycal analysis gives you the chance to state your opinion. You are having the option of being able to agree or disagree with the author on the article you are writing about. An objective summary only summarizes what the article is about. There is no room to write your opinion in it. The goal for a rhetorycal analysis is to have the reader agree with what you believe. The hardest part for writing a rhetorycal analysis was defending your statement about the article. The easiest part was being able to state your opinion because its coming from you. I might use rhetorycal analysis in my life by comparing a situation that has people with two different opinons because I would have to state each person’s opinion and then defent why my opinion is right.

LESSONS LEARNED ABOUT O.S-Objective Summaries 101;)

October 14, 2011 Leave a comment

 The easiest part about this assignment was that the instructions already provided articles to choose from. Meaning, I did not have to choose my own topic. This always seems to be the hardest part for me because there is so much to write about! The most difficult part was the opening paragraph. I feel the opening paragraph should always be the one most interesting to read because that is what a reader first reads. I would probably use obejctive summaries in everyday life, when I am summarizing a show, movie, or magazine to a friend. Since, an objective summary focuses on the main points of something it provides the important detail.

SOMETHING INTERESTING:You should be concerned!

September 23, 2011 Leave a comment

In In 5 Deadliest Effects of Global Warming, it talks about the the 5 biggest effects of global warming.  For example, it says it can cause economic consequences due to natural disasters. I feel this is important because it can be a reason why the economy is low. Therefore, people should be more concerned about global warming.  The fact that this blog goes straight to the point makes it faster and easier to read the effects of global warming. Possibly, a few more details would make this blog even better!

In Effects of Global Warming on Humans, it gives information on how global warming can affect humans. For instance, it has a picture on the top to give a bettter undestanding. It illustrates how global warming cause cause many changes to the weather. This is important too because the weather is a part of everyone’s life. The weather can be a reason why someone may change outdoor plans with someone due to bad weather. Although, this blog gives good information and a picture to make it more visual, the title does not flow witht the blog. At first, when I just read the title I thought it was going to talk about people’s health being affected by global warming. As I began to read it I realized it was about the wear and nothing about a person’s health. I’d suggest changing the title would make the paper more accurate with its title.

In Australia Among First Places To Suffer From Worst Global Warming Effects, it talks about Australia being affected by global warming. Before I had read this blog I was not aware about the effects of global warming at Australia. I feel that maybe once people read this it will make them be more aware about the importance of global warming. I like how this blog gives precised stastics to make the blog more credible. Although, I think a picture would make it better because it would let the readers picture it, as well.

REFLECTION ON PEER REVIEW:Thanks for the advice:)

September 16, 2011 Leave a comment

   I found to think reading other students papers were very helpful towards writing my own papers because it gave me a better understanding on how to write my own. I do not believe anything I did was not helpful, I found every step helpful. The peer review could be more helpful for me as a writer because it gave me feedback that helped me benefit from it. For insatnce, the suggestiongs written on specific suggestions were the most helpful because it allowed me to identify exactly what needed improvement.   Overall, thank you though I think the help will make my paper better.
