Topic: Do you think this writing course prepared you for other higher level writing courses and do you think this course has made you a better writer.
I think this course definitely made me a better writer. With the first draft I brought for review, I was told “this is a very high school essay.” I knew exactly what Professor Cream meant. My writing was very structured, but in a bad way. After meeting with professor Cream countless times for edits and brainstorming, I believe my writing improved greatly. I think if I had not taken this course, my writing abilities would not be strong enough to write formal essays for other classes, let alone a higher writing course. This course helped me to understand how to better connect the ideas of others to my own ideas. It also helped me to better understand what effective writing is and what it takes to be a good writer. I also appreciated the in class discussions, as they helped shape my ideas. I will definitely apply the criticisms and critiques I was given by professor cream in the future courses I take. I would definitely recommend this course to all incoming freshman, as it taught me how to break away from the “high school essay” mold.
