This semester I feel like I have improved my reading and writing skills a lot. I don’t think that I have become very much faster at reading, but I definitely have increased my reading stamina a lot. When we read in class it used to be hard for me to stay focused on my book for that long, but now I find myself wishing we had more time to read. I also have learned to enjoy reading a lot more than I used to. Along with my reading skills, my writing skills have also improved a lot this semester. I think that the blog posts helped me to learn how to write faster and how to write shorter things, because before we did the blog posts I was super slow at writing. Along with that, the essay and some of the paper that we wrote helped me to learn how to keep a paper organized and how to write longer things, and take my time on them. Overall, I feel like this English class helped me improve a lot this semester.
