Throughout this semester, we were taught a series of
different writing techniques. By using Brush strokes, parallelism, rhetorical precise,
PACES, common place analyses, metadiscourse, research sketch and the proper way
to write in MLA citation, made my writing excel to a new level. The five paragraph
essay in unit one, wasn’t just the usual grammar school essay, rather I elaborated
on the issue I choose to write about, dealing with my commitment to being a
student athlete and the impact track has made on my life. The second unit was
the rhetorical analysis and I centered my focused on the nature vs. nurture
debate. Finally the third unit rolled around and the assignment for the
research sketch was handed out, I attacked that paper with the idea of what has
a large impact on our society, well it was my chance to show my forensic
background and choose the “CSI effect”.
Every chose I made while writing, stemmed from the detailed new
techniques I acquired this semester.
