After writing this portfolio I learned about myself that gift of writing is not one that I have, but at least I can write enough to be understood and comprehend what I read.

Writing is a skill that you have to work on from beginning to end and end to beginning again. To write you must first know how to read, with understanding. The writing process requires you to research, brainstorm and then begin writing. After you have written about your topic you should reread, edit and even have someone else read it.

Task 2.What are you approaching to learning ?
Definition of Learning is “to get knowledge or skill in a new subject or activity”

The short story A Small, Good Thing by Raymond Carver tells of two American parents dealing with their son's hospitalisation and death as the result of a hit-and-run car accident. The insensitive actions of their local baker add to their anger and confusion, yet by the end of the story, leave them with a sense of optimism and strength. With such content, Carver runs the risk of coming across as sentimental; however, this is not the case, and the anguish of the parents and their shock at the situation…
