This process seemed to be easier because of all the preparation that we did before we started writing the paper. You made us think of the two pieces if writhing that we were going to compare. Finding the quotes or at least thinking about what they were going to be about was very helpful as well.

I have learned through this essay that it is quite a bad idea to get behind on something like a big essay such as this one. Next time I would stay on top of my work so that I may participate in the editing in class. This essay was a bit more challenging because there was no real outline for it and we had to do everything on our own. I have really grown as a writer...

Both ways were fine for me. I feel as though the finding of the quotes was a good way to start. Even though the outline was a lot different then last year, I think it gave us more independence and choices for our papers.

some of the things that i liked about doing this essay specifically is that there was no limit on how long it could be. the process of how we started this essay was a little bit different then what i was used to in the past. some of the things that might help next time is to not do such a specific outline of what needs to be done.

The process would have been a lot easier if i hadn't missed any school. I got behind and wasn't able to work in the class when we wrote the essay. I assume that getting the paper done and knowing what I actually had to do would have made the completion easier.

I liked this process of writing. It was really helpful to just be able to see what needed to be worked on, at each station, one at a time. Being able to see it one at a time helped to me to be able to concentrate on each section, and work to make it better, as opposed to getting a list all at once, and trying to concentrate on everything at once.

I also enjoyed being able to work on it over the course of a couple days and work on things as I felt like it, instead of all at once so I had more time to think about how I wanted things phrased. I definitely think this process would be helpful to do again in the future a few more times until it's completely stuck in our heads and we write it without thinking about it as much as we could have.

This paper was in a way easier because of the preparation before we started writing, but the lack of a real outline for the paper made it more difficult. I've learned from this essay to get important work done sooner rather then later, so I could participate in class.

This process of the essay was a lot different from what I was use to. The work that we did before hand really made it easier to for me to write the paper. I feel that finding the quotes before we started was a different way but it did work. I would have liked to have more of an outline like we did last year, with really specific information on it would have been really helpful.

I didn't like writing this way very much. I don't think I got as good of a result. I eventually ended up reverting to thinking of a thesis from the beginning and building off of that.

I thought this was a great way to do essays because it allowed me a lot more free reign as to what I was going to write about and how I was going to do it. It was set in stone "you have to do it this way" which was really nice, and made me take better care as to what I was writing about, since it wasn't just a fill in quotes and thesis here type of thing

I didn't like the outline we used this time for the essay. Although I did like finding quotes in the beginning of the preparation process was very helpful, the lack of an actual outline made it very difficult for me to write this paper. I've learned to stay on top of the assignments and to hand in the paper on time is a better choice than being lazy.

I liked this process because it helped me find a lot specific details and good resources to write my essay. I liked comparing reoccurring themes from two different stories to Into the Wild. I suggest always using this process for writing essays because it was very engaging and helped produce very good essays.

BillyYHS said...

I liked the processs of the essay but I think that there could be more class time devoted to the essay itself versus so much time spent on the outline.
