I do see myself using this a lot for improving my writing overall. My grammar and knowledge in APA format are my weaknesses. I almost received a citation for plagiarism during my first class because I misunderstood what citing was for. When I was told to write in my own words, I thought that meant for me not to cut and paste. As long as I wrote it without looking in a book, I thought I was good to go. I did not cite any of my references and received a horrible grade for it (American Psychology Association, 2010). I felt it was one of my best efforts and complained against the TA. The feedback I received from the professor was not good. That was when I learned that I needed help in APA and writing. I will definitely utilize Smarthinking and ask for help when needed.Knowledge is power when it comes to communicating scholarly and professional. The more I read about the Stages of Writing, I realized that time management is critical in writing papers. I really enjoyed this week’s assignment because it clarified four years of confusion whenit comes to writing papers. I am curious to apply the MEAL plan to my previous papers and see if each paragraph was properly written. Did they include a Main Idea, Evidence, Analysis, and Link. At first, all of this is overwhelming.
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.
