Developing to Develop

Hello World,

 

Last year, I was a progressing english student, this year, I’m an experimental english student. In 8th grade, I played it safe, I wrote my essays based on clear and inspirational themes, I used vocabulary I had learned, but always keeping it to something I knew would be appreciated. This year, I’m trying to experiment, with my own thoughts and always challenging myself to come up with new ideas.

I’m trying to find new vocabulary that describes exactly the point I’m trying to make. Last year, everything was good or bad. This year, it’s kind-hearted or destructive, and everything in between. I try to use new vocabulary, mostly by looking it up or from hearing it or seeing it being used. It’s difficult having english as a second language and then being expected to write and efficiently use words you have never actually heard of.

So why have I developed this way? What is the reason for this? I think the main factor, is the teacher. Both my english teachers taught me well, and taught me to develop, but this year, I get to be more creative. I am challenged to explain my thoughts on my ideas, rather than giving my thoughts on an idea. No doubt it’s more demanding, but it gives me better results, because I get to be creative with my thoughts.

Sincerely,

Jules

  1. Hello Julie

    Which PEE Chain was the most powerful? What makes you say that?

    „I’m trying to find new vocabulary that describes exactly the point I’m trying to make. Last year, everything was good or bad. This year, it’s kind-hearted or destructive, and everything in between. I try to use new vocabulary, mostly by looking it up or from hearing it or seeing it being used. It’s difficult having english as a second language and then being expected to write and efficiently use words you have never actually heard of.“

    This is a great paragraph, because it clearly shows your point and also gives an example. You wrote about the example in detail, which really adds a lot of strength to your PEE Chain.

    What other comparison points would you be interested in reading about?

    I really like how you talked about WHY you developed into the learner you are today. In would’ve also liked to read about some of your techniques you used to develop yourself in such a positive way.

    Great post Julie!
