    What did I learn from writing this assignment?
    I learned a lot about how to organize my writing and how to make everything flow smoothly. Also I learned how to integrate quotes which is a very hard concept for me.
    What did I do well in this unit?
    I integrated my quotes very well in this unit. I also picked the right quotes to go in the right places so that they will assist in proving my thesis or point of the essay.
    What areas could I improve on?
    I could always improve on my grammar. I always have some if not many grammatical errors even though I do re-read it several times. I need to watch out for commas and the spelling of my words especially.

    Which of our three goals do you feel you improved upon the most? Better reader, better writer, or better speaker and listener?
    Definitely a better writer because I have learned so much this semester about content, organization, and especially style. I am more organized with my writing as well and I feel like I have grown as I writer in many ways.
    I feel better about the essays that I am turning in and the work that I have done.

    What will you take away from this class? What will you remember?
    I will always remember the caring, competent citizen saying. Also, I will remember a lot of the new vocabulary words that I have added to my active vocabulary and I will also remember the ones that I have in my passive. This class has really expanded my vocabulary which will help me be a more efficient speaker.
