During Humanities, we have been learning about how to write and structure an argumentative essay, and what aspects we should include to improve our argumentative essay writing skills. As a final assessment, we chose a topic of our choice and wrote an argumentative essay using the skills, knowledge and understanding that we gained during the unit. I think I structured my paragraphs well to include the information I wanted to share in a formal manner, and also managed to use words that reflected how I felt about this topic without turning it into more a persuasive essay. Perhaps next time, I’d like to improve my introduction and write it with a clearer bias and meaning, while providing more insightful or useful background information for my reader. I’d also liked to have further addressed the opposing sides points. The grade that I received was actually a bit different from how I graded myself. The biggest difference I’d say would be in W.7.1.c, but after rereading my essay I think my transitional words do vary and match with the topic and statistics I was sharing with the readers. I was also quite surprised with my grade in D2.Civ.6.6-8. because I didn’t explain that area as much as I would’ve liked. I think the biggest challenge I faced while writing this essay was finding the right articles because some of the information I needed was very specific. I also think putting my evidence and reasoning together to have it make sense and possess a good flow came as quite a challenge because I had so much evidence and I had to connect it with my reasoning and claim. Eventually, I managed to capture a good sequence and flow within my essay after assembling and planning how each of my paragraphs would go and what it would be about.
