Final reflection

I have just completed my final reflections essay. This assignment really allowed me to look back at all of my works, and think about what I did well on them, and what I could’ve have improved on. This ENG101 class was definitely one of the most interesting and unique classes I have ever taken so far. […]

Final Reflection

I just finished my final portfolio and reflection for this course (Click here for the original prompt)! This course has given me so much freedom to express my opinions, which was definitely something I was not use to in traditional English courses. It really allowed me to branch out and explore many different aspects of writing. I came into this class not expecting what I would walk out with, but this class has definitely exceeded my expectations in terms of how much I’ve learned. My writing has definitely changed over the course of this class. Before this course, I was use to the formal essays with a thesis statement in the introduction, 3 body paragraphs defending your thesis with citations from outside sources, and a conclusion at the end to wrap everything up. However, this course has definitely taken me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to express more through my writing and add little inputs of my opinion in my projects. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and learned alot that will definitely benefit me in future years to come.


I have finished my Analyzing Vietnamerica Project. I will be giving an analysis on a comparison between two texts, one of which being the primary text, the graphic memoir, Vietnamerica, which I will be defending it as an autoethnography, and the other key text being used as the analytical lens. This was the most time-consuming project since we had to carefully analyze two texts as well as compare them on how they work to complicate each other.

Final Conferences

I’ve made a Google doc with my availability between now and the end of the day on 5/6. Please find a thirty-minute slot where you are available to meet with me to discuss your work in the class and then enter your name in the Google column on the right and then please be certain that you enter that time in your calendar and show up at the time you’ve signed up for!

There are lots of slots available, so hopefully nobody will have a difficult time finding availability. If for some reason none of those times work for you, then please send me an email with a couple of times when you are available and I’ll try to work something out.

These conferences should be low-pressure meetings. We’ll spend most of the time looking at your site and discussing your writing, and maybe brainstorming future paths for your domain. If you have any questions about anything you’ve written or questions about the class or anything else, or something you want to do with your site that you haven’t figured out, then please feel free to ask and we can talk about it. Basically, I’d just like the opportunity to give you some individual, conversational feedback and to respond to any questions you have.
