  • My proposal for my literary analysis essay on The Book of Unknown Americans is on optimism. Through almost every side story in the book, every single character sees the best in their situation. Every time, the characters seem to not be able to get what they want out of life. They came to america with a specific reason in mind, but it never plays…[Read more]

  • The scene that I decided to draw was the one where Mayor’s father bought a car. Mostly because I enjoy drawing cars, but also because this was an opportunity for Roberto to indulge in something he wants. Based off the book and family experience, when immigrants come to the US, they put what they want in the back of their mind and put what they n…[Read more]

    • My writing process for this essay was one where i reflected on my past knowledge and then implemented that knowledge into my paper while researching more into the issue and using that new knowledge to better my essay. My strengths for this essay was implementing a story into the paper and getting the reader emotional, I was also good at presenting background information to inform the reader on the issue as much as i could. I felt that my weakness and struggles were not with flow as my past essay was but was instead on getting the point across. I felt that the thesis may have not been as clear as it could have been

  • For my essay, a lot of revisions need to be made. The intro needs to be reworked, for possibly a different audience, that focuses more on pathos. The essay in total needs some more emphasis on logos as well. Better citations need to be implemented, and photos that work with the essay need to be paired to the blog post. The essay also needs to be…[Read more]

  • For someone to change my mind or convince me of s something, they have to give me good reasons and evidence. They need to provide me an idea that makes sense and is coherent, not some random idea off the top of their head. And that idea of theirs needs to be backed by evidence.

    • 1. I felt that when it came to this essay, i did a good job at describing my situation and the emotions that went through my head during my trial. I also felt that I managed to have an enticing and relatable intro and hook. I felt that I had a good lesson and outro as well. I also managed to inject some humor into my narrative which i think benefited it. I also found my experiences with my parents to be relatable, as with adolescents, everyone has issues with their parents.
      2. I struggled with making the essay a bit more fluid, and making my experience with my mother as enticing as my experiencing with my father. There were also times where my essay would have benefited from some more metaphors and similes, as well as some more descriptive language.
      3. I felt that i earned a 2 (B). My story had character, a good intro and outro, with a fun and interesting body. I’d love 3 (or an A), but i feel like the essay didn’t flow as well as it could have and would benefit from one more draft.

  • The point or lesson of my narrative is that through practice and persistence, your goals can be accomplished. The goal may not be easy to achieve, and may even seem impossible at first, but if you stay determined you will succeed. I learned this lesson through my own experience of trying to learn stick shift.
