Assignment 15

What I would say to a new student taking English 311 is that the class is nothing like you expect it to be. I feared this class for the simple fact is that I am not very knowledgeable in the English area. I was scared of not succeeding and not finishing the class. Fortunately, I hung in there and learned so much to be a success in the future. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have been in this class.

Assignment #14

The Service Learning Experience was great in developing myself as a person. In my previous blog I spoke about the importance of volunteering in our community. The learning objection in the course was outlined very well and these 15 weeks has taught me a lot. I have learned a lot about my community and it helps me to determine how my future goals will be benefit me as a person by continuing to be an active part of the community. My son and I have both made a commitment to being involved.

Assignment #13


In my SLP I learned a lot about the different volunteering that goes on in our community. Not just from my own but from others. There is a great need for service and it helped to be a part of it. There is a need on a local level that is unimaginable. I have seen first hand that food banks, hospitals, and other outreach centers in the Lansing area. Making a commitment to our community is something that makes your self worth valuable.

Assignment #12 Small group projects

The group projects gave us to chance to work with different people in my class. It was good to get other ideas and the groups that I worked with all pitched in with information. They would focus on working on the task at hand. I really enjoyed the different people that I met in my class and the things we learned.

Individual Technical Definition

By being in this 311 class we did things I never expected. I learned a lot about the things I can do and one was creating a web design. I know this was written before we did our business, but this was something I thought I would never do. The internet is so full of information that it can only make you want to try something new. "Think out of your box".

Assignment #7

Strategies to make consistent language choices:

For my PLCR the interview that I did with Jane Crowner did not enlighten me to a cultural language in the packaging field. There were many facets to the packaging field and without knowing if I will specialize in the food industry or being in physics. The jargon will definitely be different.
