Really need help!!! Can you help me edit my composition?

ESL 263 Reflective Writing Assignment December 10, 2012 Why Should I Move Onto ESL 273? I’m now well-developed to use convincing examples and facts to support and explain my main idea. Moreover, I have confidence in my ability about the integration of information. I collect materials related to my main point and then sort them out, gather the essential ones and use them with facility. For instance, in the out-class writing, “Don’t Be Afraid to Make Mistakes”; in order to show that mistakes help us to achieve the success, I used the survey from Chemistry book and I also quoted the successful entrepreneurial example. So with solid foundation and convincing facts, I was persuasive and can always make my point strong. I guess that`s one of my strongest strengths. Besides the strength, there`s also something shortages. I found it easy to conclude based on title. But when I took the whole content into consideration, I felt difficult in making conclusion. Like the first two times in writing, I made my conclusion just based on title, there is no link to the paragraphs , the pale conclusion looked less consistent and even unreasonable. Gradually I realized what caused this. I was kind of creative and I wanted to modify my expression until it gleamed with perfection. This was not bad, but when it came to summary, the more information I got, the harder I felt to summarize. So I managed to conclude each paragraph step by step, eliminated the insignificant parts then I got my concise main idea. And after professor Lee’s

teaching, now I make great progress and believe this can be overcome and even becomes my merits in the near future when I take ESL 273 course. During this quarter, I learned to use appropriate topic sentence. The topic sentence is usually at the beginning of a paragraph. It indicates the author’s main idea and grasps the attention of the reader. I used to ignore its importance. However, at the beginning of this quarter, we did some practices and then used it in our writing. Like in my in-class writing “My Lazy Sister”, I have used one topic sentence for each paragraph as the topic sentence, like “My sister is a clever and beautiful girl, but she has an unknown shortcoming-laziness.” These exercises were very helpful and inspiring. Not only did I acquire many delicate topic sentences, I also realized that a clearly topic sentence is so essential. It did better to the whole structure of my passage.
