English Relfection

English Final Reflection – Dahun

 

Through this humor unit, I learned how writers are using language to create a humorous effect while conveying the theme or message. At the starting of the unit, I was quite ignorant of literary devices, but I acquired new literary devices such as anaphora and alliterations through both Confusions and the poetry anthology, which generated a humorous theme. However, I still need to dig deeper into the content. For the “Drinking Companion” dialectical journal, I did not make a significant observation on how the language is influencing the audience, and for the “Sick” CER analysis, I analyzed too many literary devices, so my product became extremely narrow. Therefore, I should try to add more detail to the audience’s response to literary devices for further assessment.

 

My SMART goal for this unit was to understand how to use language devices to create a humorous atmosphere and to understand the influence on the audience. In general, I successfully achieved my SMART goal for this unit. I discovered an anaphora of I and my on every line except line 2,28,30,31 and 32, and found various alliterations including “My mouth”, “Hip hurts”, “Belly buttons” and “Pendix pain” on line 5, 15, 16 and 18 which were new devices for me. I also analyzed that these devices are letting the audience easily immerse themselves into a humorous theme. I could do so because the feedback that I received on the dialectical journal helped me a lot to find what I should focus on for the CER. Therefore, I can say that my understanding of literary devices improved more than I expected as I discovered new literary devices and their effect on the audience on the text, which is my biggest success.

 

For me, the particularly challenging part about this unit was meeting the deadline. I thought I am able to meet the deadlines, so I set it very tight without considering other assignments. As a result, I could not meet the deadlines for both dialectical journal and CER although I stayed up all night working. Therefore, I can say that I am still developing my skills in meeting deadlines, which gives Needs Improvement for my Time management. I willingly received and accepted your feedbacks, so I am satisfactory for the willingness to accept feedback. I generally was prepared for the class, which gives satisfactory my preparation. Therefore, I think I am in a satisfactory standard for responsibility in general. I set realistic goals and reflected them, so I get satisfactory for independent learning. I remained focused and on task, so I am in a satisfactory standard for engagement. Lastly, I was willing to accept a challenge with teacher prompting, so I get satisfactory for perseverance. Thus, I generally am in a satisfactory standard for attitude.

 

As I mentioned at the front, my weakest point is time management. Therefore, improving my time management skill is the first priority for me to perform better relating to SALs. For this semester, I had some time wasted some times because I was staying home the whole time. Therefore, I could not meet my deadline and could not revise my work. That’s why the quality of my dialectical journal was awful. To minimize wasted time, I should make my daily schedule. This way, I will be able to manage my time better and revise my work before I turn it in. In English 10, my ultimate goal is to improve my writing skills. Unlike others, English is not my mother tongue, so I often feel difficulties when writing essays. I am aiming to complete IB program, which is full of essay assignments, so it is essential for me to have fancy writing skills. To do so, I am aiming to read many books during summer break so that my writing improves.
