I received feedback from my tutor, Aaron, and he suggested that I work on my grammatical errors and punctuation.
I also noticed a couple of errors with style and punctuation that we can work on in class.
I also noticed a couple of grammatical errors. Remember to read over your work, again and again and again.
Throughout the past six weeks, I have been proofreading my work a lot more. And therefore picking up mistakes that I usually would have missed. I have enjoyed using a blog (for the first time) for an course, as I think it shows a journey throughout the term.
Eleven quizzes down and 100% on each! That is a pretty good feeling.
I think the quizzes were a great learning tool, they made sure that we were on track by testing our knowledge on a certain chapter of the text.
The quizzes that I found hardest were ; quiz 4 (reporting speech) and quiz 3 (grammar: 10 common mistakes). Not only did I find these the hardest, but if I recall correctly I attempted the quizzes without reading the text first. Which was obviously a mistake, as all the answers lie inside the text.
I must admit I never received a perfect score on the first attempt…three weeks in a row I received 7/10 on every first attempt. The easiest quizzes would have to be Punctuation. There were two weeks worth, and I think by the end of both I had a firm understanding of where I should put a full stop!
The Media Writing course has improved my writing capabilities immensely. I think, that not only my grammar, but my writing style has developed over the courses duration. To be honest I was a little nervous about starting this course, I thought that I would not enjoy it one bit. I also thought that my marks would be horrible. Proved me wrong! This would have to be my favourite course this term, and one of my best marks.
