Todd Stahoviak English 104 9 December 2009 Second Portfolio All semester I have been working extremely hard on papers, and now I am organizing all my work into a portfolio. The major pieces or work that this portfolio will contain are my summary strong response essay, and my position essay. For these two assignments I had to prepare peer drafts and even a proposal. These assignments were the most difficult so far; because they all had to connect to one another. Also, the summary strong response was an article by Leon Botstein. All papers had to consist of more than 1000 words, and that is a ton of writing and can take much time to prepare and write. From all this writing, I have learned to become a more focused writer.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
