IE3 Writing: Lesson 13
Just one more week! We'll be finished with our course and our persuasion essay next week.
Revising and Editing:
In today's class, we learned about revising and editing. When you revise, you correct the content and structure of your research paper. When you edit, you correct grammar and style mistakes.
You then have some time to work on your peer editing task. For this task, you will revise/edit your partner's concluding paragraph. You need to complete the following for this task:
In next week's class, you will give the original copies to your partner, and the copies to me. The worksheet is attached at the end of today's blog summary.
For the last part of our lesson, you work on your peer editing activities and I had conferences with the first group of students. We will continue our conferences in next week's lesson in Room 217.

I think that our IE3 Writing class is very fruitful. In this class, I was able to know how to write essay, classification essay and persuasion essay systematically for the first time. Moreover, your correction and advice enabled me to improve my essay. Furthermore, I enjoyed peer editing tasks, which gave me the chance to see a style of language of others. I am sure that all things that I have done in our IE3 Writing class must help me to be a good writer of English in the future.

I felt this class was really hard. This writing class was very different from IE2 writing. This class had a lot of homework every week. Sometimes the homework's deadline was bit short so it was hard to manage. However, having a lot of homework, having checked my writing, and reading and editing classmates writing improved my English skills. The materials you gave us every week was really helpful for me. This is because I got to learn not only how to write but also creation symbols and the essay's structure. I am really glad that you were my writing teacher.

I am so glad that I could take your IE3 writing class. This class was actually the first time for me to write a full essays. Before I took your class, I did not know anything about essay structures. You taught us so many important things such as a hook statement, how to cite sources, bibliography, a final thought and a counter arguement. I am a little bit confident about my writing skills now. You always gave me usuful comments, and I really appreciate your help. Also, I think that was a great idea that you did not allow us to use our smartphones during the class. It made me concentrate on my essays. Thanks to this class, I think I am prepared for the Academic writing course. It is because this class made me realize that I really enjoy writing essays. I think it is hard to write perfect essays, but if you never give up, the essays will be surely improved.

I'm very satisfied with this IE3 Writing class. I want to say thank you to the teacher and to all my wonderful classmates. It was good to let us know how we should write essays in detail. Until I take this class, I had never written such an essay that I can feel perfect after finishing writing. Peer editing was also awesome for me. To know others' writings made me think again about my style.

I thought this class was really hard. I took a lot of Nicole's class, and knew how hard it was, but still wasn't prepared enough for it. I always tried to finish essays in good time, but after all, I found my self facing the computer right before the deadline. Now that I realized this, I'd like to prepare myself for IE seminar, and get working as soon as possible. I guess if I could have these tasks prepared on time, I'd be ready to move up to seminar. In all, this class was tough, but was worth it and enjoyed my time a lot. I gained many things though Nicole's lessons and am sure that these skills will be useful someday.

I didn't think IE3 writing would be this difficult. I didn't had any confidence from the start, but it was hard than I expected. I was always bad at writing. I started writing English when I was in the first grade in junior high school. My listening abilities were little good. But I didn't know how to spell anything. I hope my last essay will be a little better than the last one.

At first I thought that the level might be a little hard in Nicole's class. But as I attend the class I kind of got how to write properly. There was some works that I had trouble with but the handouts we received in class was very helpful. Some of the students were from the same class as me in IE2 so I was able to get to know them deeply. I also had fun because each students have an amazing personalties.
