Throughout CyberEnglish I know that I have learned a lot and developed a lot of skills that could be useful in later high school years. Because of having written in our blogs so much I have become a better writer. I have learned to do more then just write, but connect to what I am writing too. These skills and many more I have acquired through this school year, and they could really help me with future jobs and other related things too.
Another skill that I have gained through Cyber English is the change in the way I write. After about a quarter of Cyber English, I noticed my writing began to change. In the beginning of the year, I was always just trying to make my writing relate to the teacher that was it, but now I feel that my writing has moved farther to other types of audience. I think this is good because after all the schooling I won’t be writing to a teacher, but more of an audience that wouldn’t want to grade me. This is why I have noticed improvement because I have learned how to write and what to write for and it has changed my writing more then anything.
Hyperlinking is another thing I have learned this year in CyberEnglish. This has showed me a lot of things and helped me with the reading of hyperlink too. I think that this is very helpful because of all the websites like Wikipedia that have all the hyperlinks that most people don’t know what to do with. These are things that we could also use in later writing if we are writing about something that may be hard for some people tounderstand. Learning this was a huge help to reading other websites.
Some things that changed really surprised me. My work habits have changed so much. I have learned not to procrastinate and just do my work as it is assigned. I have also learned to organize myself since juggling a lot of assignments are not an easy thing to do. I didn’t think that I could change into this kind of person because I have been procrastinating all through my school years. I think that gaining this skill will help me reach so many other goals, and also help me not just with my writing but with other things like having a job and a life later on. I think that if this skill wasn’t gained now I would have a very hard time with later years of school.
Looking back on this school year, I wish I would have been more responsible and tried to do my work to the one-hundred percent that I know I can do. I think that was the hardest part of this year was just getting down to the work and doing it to the best ability I could. I am happy to where I came through the year and all of these things I have learned and all the skills I have gained will help me and stick with me forever.
