In the past my favorite parts of English classes were the poetry units. It allows me to see how others express their feelings and makes me feel closer to those Ihave not met or never thought to talk to. My least enjoyable subjects in
English classes in the past were learning grammar and spelling. I have
tendencies to become so in depth in what I am writing I forget to put correct
grammar and even forgetting to write out the complete word instead I would only write the first letter of the word. Novels I enjoy reading are those that take
place in an everyday setting but have characters that have supernatural
talents. At times I do like to read non-fiction novels but only if the person
has a personality that I find to be intriguing and curious to find out more
about them. In previous classes my teachers have included art into learning
about subjects such as idioms or poetry. Though some teachers have gone step by step in class with projects I preferred when the teachers had intervals and checked specific parts of the assignment allowing me to go at my own pace even if I procrastinate at times.
This year I chose to be in English 9 honors because I was influenced by parents and teachers to challenge myself with a tougher course. Also I chose it for myself because I knew if someone expected more of me then I would try harder in the class creating better habits for future years. I decided that honors would be a good class to start out at as a base for my future English classes. I hope that this class will help me improve my grammatical skills and spelling. I have heard that this class is much tougher than the regular course with many essays and requires more attention to the details of the work to get a good grade but helps with classes in future years. Also that it is impressive on college transcripts to have an honors course. I fear that my previous habits will
slow me down and affect my progress in the class to the point where it would be tough to get a decent grade. So far the class is fun and unlike other classes
it encourages creativity but also has strict rules on form, grammar, and other
subjects. It seems like a class that I will my enjoy but be miserable in
because of time occupying work.
