English Composition- ENG 115 Proffesor Brinda Surendar Strayer University May 26, 2013

My approach on writhing is something that I’m really not too sure of. I feel that me as a person I have a very unique approach on writing I tend to write what I feel write off of emotion. However for this class I will like to learn how to be a more creative writer, I writer that will be able to grasp my readers and hold on to them so that the can feel the words of the story that I am telling them. I want to be able to through this class express myself as a writer as well. One of my biggest goals that I will like to achieve out of this class is being able to communication more effectively. I have been told that I tend to run on and on with subjects and not stick to the point when writing so I really want to work on that in this class. One way that I expect to use writing will be in my professional career I tend to one day have my very own nonprofit organization for kids who have parents that are recovering addicts. So this writing class with will be able to help me with writing out proposals and other documents that I will need to summit to companies to help with the funding for my organization. One way that I set goals for myself is that I put it into my head mentally that this is something that I will like to achieve and what I want done. One of my biggest challenges when writing for others is did I make everything clear enough for the reader so that they will be able to understand what I’m saying and did I make my point clear enough. So as you can see I have a lot of work to do and goals to accomplish with this class I will work my hardest on getting this…...

Writer Autobiography

...Writer Autobiography When it comes to writing, it may be captivating and enjoyable for some while being threatening and intimidating for others. Throughout my academic career, I have learned a great deal about writing. Starting from grade school all the way up until college, writing has been a fundamental part of my life. I have come to learn that from all my experiences and influences, I have been shaped into a descriptive writer. My strength in writing has always come from describing a situation in as much detail as I can. This shaping of mine has been characterized by certain events and certain people in my life, and it has helped give an identity of what type of writer I am and what type of student I am. In order to develop into an adequate writer with an identity for yourself, one must have been educated a certain way. For me, there was one person in particular that helped turn me into a comfortable descriptive writer. In my sophomore year of high school, my English 2 teachers’ name was Jeannette Maldonado. She, like many of her other peers, was a first year teacher, and I did not expect to get an adequate grasp of writing and literature because of her inexperience. However, Ms Maldonado turned out to be a major turning point in my writing life, as she would not only challenge her students on assignments, but would give constructive criticism and work with you to help develop your ideas. Up until that point, I had been just an average writer and really did not give......

...My Approach to Writing I have three educational goals of this course. I want to gain a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. My next goal would be to get a job within my field such as a Public Relations Specialist or an Office Administrator. My third goal of this course is to pursue my education to a master’s degree gaining even more knowledge about my field. In expect to use writing in my university career writing reports and essays, summarizing, and researching. In my professional life writing plays a major role especially in business. Business fields such as marketing, finance, and research need excellent writing skills to properly convey ideas and concepts. Types of writing in professional careers include resumes, company communications, emails, presentations, reports and visual aids. Professionals use factual statements, evidence and reasons for statements they made, which encourages readers to agree with them. Keeping a journal since junior high trained me to be more observant. Instead of paying attention to the negative side of things I pay attention to the positive side. Have you ever lost train of thought? My memory is improved by writing down my ideas in my journal. In my personal life writing also helps me express my thoughts. Sometimes I write down things from a lesson in my journal to help write more detailed statements. In writing an academic paper my goals are to write a paper that will be acceptable. Some papers are poorly written, which makes it......

...Reflective Journal 1 My Approach to Writing Jamie Mahan My goals for this course are to improve the way I write professionally for when I begin my career after I graduate. I want to be able to write a report or even a note so it doesn’t look messy and my punctuation is correct. The ways I would expect to use writing in school is when I have to write a report, discussion, or journal. The way I would use writing in my personal life is when I email someone, write a grocery list, or write a check or balance my checkbook. The way I would use writing in my professional life is if I had to write a business letter, or a phone message, and when I email someone from my work. When I write an academic paper, I first see what the topic is I am going to be writing about. When I know what I am going to be writing about, I do the research so I can find the information about the topic. I write a rough draft. When I am done writing the rough draft, I read through and make any correction that needs to be made. I type the final draft on my computer and save it. The biggest challenge I have when writing is if I did the paper corrected and did I format everything the right way. I worry if I did enough research and did I explain everything enough so the reader can understand what I wrote about....

...My Approach to Writing By: Michael Czeczeli My goals for this course are fairly simple. My biggest goal for this course is to learn how to write a paper and get my point across without going overboard with run- on sentences and un-needed info. In my career field it’s going to be very important to be able to get my point across with minimal errors and mistakes. Another goal of mine is to learn to overall like writing. When I first started school I couldn’t stand writing papers or sending emails, but since that is the biggest line of communication today I need to learn to love it. I plan on using my writing in many different ways. One major way I plan on using writing is sending emails and letters to customers and employees at work. I hope to be a General Manager or at least Assistant General Manager of a major company or corporation after graduation. I plan to also use my writing throughout my college career. My college career is looking to be a long one since I plan to continue until I receive my masters’ degree in business. A really big use of my writing will be helping my daughters as they journey through school over the years to come. When I set out to write an academic paper I usually set a few goals for myself. The major goal for me is to insure that the reader gets all the information that is intended for them. I want to make sure that they fully understand where I’m coming from without drawing it out too much. Sometimes I have problems with run-on sentences...

My Approach to Life

...What is Your Approach to Life? By DeAnn Adler After many years of living, I still don’t have life completely figured out and I’m assuming I never will, but age has given me some wisdom and I have hopefully learned a few things in all that time. I have not one philosophy of life, but many, and all of them put together make me the person I am today. During my senior year in high school over thirty-two years ago, the teacher in my civics class asked what we students thought was the secret to a happy life. A blond, curly headed boy in the class answered that he thought “everything in moderation” was the key to a successful, happy life. I’ve never forgotten those words, even after all this time, and they’ve become a part of who I am and how I’ve lived my life. In ancient Greece, the temple of Apollo at Delphi bore the inscription Meden Agan - 'Nothing in excess'. 1 The ancient Greeks knew what my high school classmate had—that moderation makes life run more smoothly. Moderation in this day and age is not always hip though. What are cool are extremes, from extreme sports to extreme home makeovers. But it seems that for a lot of people, straying from the path of moderation causes nothing but heartache, from the drinker who loses everything to the bottle, to the gambler who loses his life’s savings. The more extreme our wants, the more we must accumulate to make ourselves happy. But I also think moderation can make for an extremely boring life. It’s a life played safely and without...

...attempt to commit genocide, conspiracy to commit genocide, complicity in genocide or direct public incitement to commit genocide shall attract a significant punishment (Stanton, 2002). The failure of the vow Philosophical concerns There are serious concerns on the validity of UN-UDHR philosophical approach on the genocide problem. It is scholarly prudent to note that the 1945 UN convention was characterized by powerful global powers and minor nations were either inexistence or had a limited say. The 1945 primary goal focused to limit interstate aggression, on possibility weakening Germany militarily. The notion of Moral relativism was applied to pass judgments against a people or culture. The problem with moral relativism is its assumption that nobody is either right or wrong. Gallagher (2013, p. 78) argues that genocide proves moral relativism as wrong. The problem is that; a genocide perpetrator will envisage the act of genocide to be morally right since after all his community holds views that genocide is legitimate. The 1919 Versailles treaty was not based on Moral relativism, and a result, Germany was conditioned to harsh reparations. To represent an alternative approach after the holocaust, the Global Community adapted Moral relativism, which in analysis was poisoned by the argument of internal affairs of a country. Moral relativism was chiefly responsible for the degradation of the house moral stand against genocide. In a particular case, the 2011 Kim Jong il......

...a shortage of resources, it has a value difficult to be exaggerated. With a reduced staff of around 40 highly qualified specialists, who were learning while the project was growing up, INFOMED began to build what today is a national online healthcare information network that connects doctors, hospitals, research facilities, and rural clinics throughout the country providing health news and medical data. Since the project required an expensive physical infrastructure, along the first 5 years, the scope of the network was rather small. However, within only 18 months, an unsophisticated network was already up and running. Since its foundation it was decided to use Linux OS because it was more in line with Cuban philosophy of an open source approach; the fact that there were many Linux experts in Cuba was also considered. As a matter of fact, it was the first project on a national level anywhere in the world that ran exclusively on Linux. INFOMED’s growth inescapably involved to obtain US technologies which made the whole effort even more difficult because of the sanctions. It is possible to grasp the magnitude of the difficulties in this concern by visiting some American Web sites where it is found explicit prohibitions for a Cuban citizen to download anything from them, even universally free applications. Besides a modest amount of funds supplied by the Cuban ministry of health, INFOMED was the recipient of an extra-budgetary project from the United Nations Development......

...When I look at myself as a writer, I never knew I could write like this. From grade school to high school I never really looked at myself as a really good writer. I doubted myself whenever a teacher said, “We are beginning another big paper.” I feared writing and never really gave my writing any thought. However, as I start college, I knew I would be assigned numerous amounts of papers. As I walked in the very first day of college I was scared. I thought I wouldn’t get anywhere because I thought I couldn’t write anything. Giving much thought into the whole writing process and having many people behind me is when I knew I could write something even if it was good or bad at first, I knew many signs of weaknesses and strengths would show through and im glad they did and some I didn't exspect. I have many weaknesses as a writer. One weakness in particular would be that I have writer's block. I will be able to begin a paper but never really know where to go with it. When I am writing I tend to get blocked with words to say. I don’t want to not sound academic so I have to sit for a while at my computer and think of words to say so sometimes even doing that I will still draw a blank I overthink sometimes and it distracts me.. Another weakness I feel I have is that I waste time. I tend to just sit at and i feel lost. That is a waste of time for me. I need to find a way where I can just sit and write an entire paper at one time and then revise it I like to free write and just like......

...The long wait home I have been waiting for Ma since a really long time now. The frills on my dress were beginning gnaw my pink flesh and the heat was enjoying the show, shining mischievously. We had some feast in school, hence the dress instead of the uniform. I wonder what kept Ma away for such a long time. She told me that she’ll pick me up as soon as she finishes her purchase. Both Grandma and she would sew innumerable dresses for Bua. Today, they had gone to buy some other supplies. Grand ma was with her too. They told me to wait after school and assured me that they would be there before time. I patiently waited and after a long time of baking under the unwanted vitamin D, I went inside and sat on the staircase. Schools have a peculiar feel to them. They always have staircases; I guess the makers know how exciting it is to run away from the institution once you’re done for the day. There were several parents who’d come by to bring back their kids. While hoping that Ma would come sooner, it occurred to me that I had noticed Aunty. Misra Aunty I think was her name; not that it was of any consequence then, as she was in this great tussle to drag her daughter’s hand in what seemed like an unwanted stretch of the limb. She somehow threw in a glance! Man! I am dead meat. I hope she doesn't notice me. I wonder what caught her fancy, my dress or the constant dragging of her daughter, who seemed quite forlorn. She looked like she was tired of dragging her with one hand,...

...9 Formal Reports and Proposals he distinctions between formal and informal reports are often blurred. Nevertheless, a formal report is usually written to someone in another company or organization. Occasionally it is written for a senior manager in the same company, or for someone with whom the writer has little regular contact. Usually it is longer than an informal report and requires more extensive research. Unless you are a consultant, you are unlikely to be asked to write a formal report often. When you are, there may be a lot riding on it— including your reputation. The purpose of this chapter is to show you how to write a formal report and how to put together the kind of proposal that often precedes it. As Figure 9-1 shows, many of the elements of formal reports are the same as those for informal ones.You need to pay the same attention to headings, lists, and illustrations, for example. Although much of the advice in the previous chapter could be duplicated in this one, the emphasis here will be on those areas where there’s a difference.
