The main benefit that I was able to gain from this course was related to the concepts of writing that were shown during the course. The papers that were written as well as the way that I was able to approach my personal understanding of writing helped me to develop substantially. I now have a better association with grammar, organization of papers and the mechanics that are related to English. The practical application of this through the various assignments helped me to practice writing and the techniques that are a part of this. This was one of the best concepts that were associated with the class, specifically because it allowed me to have a practical understanding of the concepts in the class and the expectations that were a part of the course.
Another benefit that was a part of this class was with the reading that was a part of the course. The analysis that was combined with this, as well as the research that was required, provided me with a deeper level of interest in the course. As I moved through this course, I was able to gain a deeper interest in the specific topics and the requirements that were a part of this. At times, I found specific interests that led me into personal research and development. Each of these was based on the studies of the course as well as the expectations that were a part of the different assignments. The mechanics that were a part of the essays written, as well as the association with research and analysis allowed me to develop and to gain further insight into the class and the expectations that were given from the syllabus.
The ability to learn these different parts of the class also allowed me to see specific weaknesses that I have in relation to writing and English. Grammar and sentence structure was difficult for me to grasp with the writing. There were several sentences that I would have to continue to revise when working on different papers.
