Final Meditation: In English 1100, you have been asked to read and synthesize a lot of information and produce four very different short essays, each of which focused on specific elements of writing that will ideally prepare you for future composition and literature courses. The online structure of the course also allowed you to engage with computer technology while interacting personally with me and one another. Write a 250-500 word meditation on the course in which you describe the skills you learned and developed in English 1100 and how you foresee yourself putting them to use in other courses and/or outside of university life. This meditation should be entirely free of mechanical and grammatical errors, so be sure to both writing something thoughtful and revise your writing. Submit via Pilot.
