I have enjoyed the English-2010 class. It has been so fun. I was apprehensive before it started, because English is not my language. But our teacher has a way to make it fun along with learning.
I will not forget our first assignment, our home memoirs. Writing short memoir was my first experience. She even encouraged the class to send home memoirs to the Folio. I sent my memoir too. I didn't win anything but I got to feel the excitement of it.
We prepared a group report. I was blessed with two people's partnership in this work. We became good friends. Three of us worked together in harmony. We learned a lot about solar power we wrote together and had fun as well.
When I was preparing my commentary I felt like I was lost in the subject. She gave us opportunity to work with editors from her further classes. I think that was a great idea to benefit for both classes. We got to learn about commentary writing and the further class students gained experience of editing.
We also had above and beyond activities. There were several options. I first picked to teach 5 minutes in the classroom. My subject was about buying a good laptop. In my 5 minute-lesson, I pointed out that the best choice was the one that satisfied the user's needs. There are many kinds of laptops out there with a variety of prices and buying the most expensive one with a lot of features you won't even use would not be the smartest idea. I took my commentary to the editors and worked with them as my second above and beyond activity. I got the third one done with my report team. We took our report to a tutor at the writing center and had him read out report. We noted his opinions and made necessary changes according to our notes. As fourth above and beyond activity I submitted my memoir to folio.
I also wrote a review about a short story called A Pail of Air. It is a Sci-fy story, written by Fritz Leiber. I was enticed by the stories name. It sounded interesting, because of that I chose to write a review about this story.
We are working on our online magazine currently. It is so exciting that we have our own magazine Solar Tech. I learned that it takes hard work and time. My group and I are so excited to see it done.
