attention which was my aim for the project. “What’s expected of College Writers: Knowledge of Conventions.” I am still learning the knowledge of conventions because this is something I am not good at, yet it’s so important. When I am writing, I make sure that I’m attending to the conventions which includes format, proper grammar, punctuations and mechanics because I personally believe that this will help my readers to understand my ideas. By taking care of conventions in my writing, I try to make my reading more pleasant for the readers. Out of all, I am more focused on developing knowledge of genre conventions that ranges from paragraphing and structure to mechanics and tone. I’ve noticed that no matter the tone and mechanics are almost the same in writing. I’ve had trouble with writing the thesis statement, so my peers and instructors helped to understand it properly. Now I can say that I’m a much better writer now, but I’m still working on it. Chapter 2 “Reading Strategically: Summarizing.” I know very well about summarizing because I use it pretty often. It helps me consolidate important details from the reading that supports them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
