English 1302 Final Essay The semester has definitely been an interesting one and I must say that English 1302 made a big contribution to that. The purpose of this course was to enhance writing, editing, and research skills but in this class much more was gained. There were many different methods used to make sure the class understood completely what was expected throughout the course. I would have to say yes, English 1302 has improved my skills needed to write effectively. The first thing you think of when writing a paper is to take a pen and paper and jot down your own personal thoughts on the subject at hand. Not realizing that there has to be a structure put in place by defining what type of paper is being written, the point that is being addressed, and the audience the paper may be targeted towards. Without acknowledging those things we are just going off a whim with no leading direction. The lack of research will cause an idea to become ineffective because the reader will not have any proof or fact that what is being written hold any truths. It would appear as mere opinions.

Though editing in this particular class took a different turn because we as the students got edit each…

There are various legal methods that can determine a “good” jury. However besides a clean record, there is not a valid way to evaluate the integrity of a chosen juror. A person with no violent background and a peaceful exterior could be prejudicial in a trial as proven in the movie Twelve Angry Men. A prime example of a good juror is Juror 8.

Why I deserve an A
Everyone wants to believe they deserve an A in a course if they did all of the assigned work on time, but more goes into an A than just your school work passed in. An A student attends all classes they possibly can, with the exception of illness and other duties. They also have a positive attitude and never complain about an assignment or its due date. Lastly, an A student works hard to produce material at the best of their ability.…

Narrative Final Essay
I had always been an avid carnivore, never really thinking about where my meat came from and never putting much thought into it. If I were to go to a restaurant I would always order the steak, chicken, any meaty substance I could acquire. I was this person up until about two years ago. I was handed a brochure about animal cruelty and it contained a lot of enlightening information about animal treatment in the food industry. I did more research on my own and felt disgusted…

Walking down the long and winding hall, I noticed that there were a large number of rooms on the left and the right. Around me doctors and nurses bustled by in their starch white uniforms, stethoscopes draped around their necks…

Shakespearean Sonnets and the Tradition of Sonnet Writing
In order to understand sonnets, we need to understand the basic meaning of a traditional sonnet. A traditional sonnet, has resemblances with doing a crossword.

If you change a line…
