Ch-ch-ch-changes


I asked my students how they’ve changed as writers from the beginning of the year until now. Here’s what a few of them said:

  • In the beginning of the year I was terrible; all I did was rush. Now I’m an amazing writer. My writing flows and creates a sense of understanding.
  • I was a “teller” writer, meaning I was good, but I didn’t show a lot. I am now a writer that uses techniques and shows a lot. Also, I give good details.
  • In the beginning of the year I would describe myself as an okay writer. Now I would describe myself as a more descriptive, dedicated writer.
  • I now describe myself as a writer who is much more attentive and gives more reasons in my writing. I describe myself as much more attentive because I understand what I’m supposed to do. As for giving more reasons, my readers understand my writing more now than in the beginning of the year.
  • In the beginning of the year, I would describe myself as being distracted in writing and not wanting to write. Now I describe myself as wanting to write.
  • I think that I’ve grown so much as a writer. I would describe myself as a great writer. I explain my (illegible) and make it clear.
  • I don’t think I was a very good writer in the beginning of the year. I couldn’t write with much depth. I think I’ve grown as a writer. I can work on my editing, but I’m much better now at writing than I was in the beginning of the year.
  • I would say that I didn’t really have my work planned out and I would need my partner’s help a lot. I can say I’ve mastered writing now.”
  • In the beginning I thought I was the worst writer ever. Now I say I’ve gotten so much better at writing since September; my entries are better.
  • Someone who was not sure what to write and how to write (in the beginning). Now I’m a person who always has an idea to write about; someone who writes deep and long about their topic.
