My teachers have always told me that I am a good writer, so I did not foresee myself having any English portfolio reflection essay in this class. But this class has been a big helper to me. It was also a topic that I had a hard time asserting any interest into the subject and topic.
From my first paper to my last, I definitely think I have improved on this, though it still remains my biggest flaw. I have written an argumentative paper in the past, although they were not quite like the ones I wrote in this class. The end result was good, but it just was not my best work.
This portfolio was made so that I can show off what I have learned from this class, and show off just how much I have improved as a writer. I feel that this class has really helped me develop and improve as a writer.

I think these qualities were, for the most part, unknown to me prior to taking this course. I found myself being repetitive, which is my biggest pet peeve in a paper.
I knew before the term started that my work is better when I spend more time on it, but this class has helped prove it to me. We have studied all these different issues and now feel I have improved much on these things but still could use more.
But with practice and good teaching anyone can develop themselves into a great writer. This assignment was particularly hard for me for several reasons.
I want to be well educated and as well rounded as possible for every field of life. I believe that in general, my portfolio contains my best work because I got the chance to take some more feedback and revise my work.
I was never pushed to describe the five senses before, as we were told to do with this essay.
