Final Assessment

Final Assessment

In this post I will be doing my final assessment on my progress throughout the semester. Some of the things I learned how to do pretty well were how to brainstorm and map ideas for my writing, how to effectively revise my writing, How to effectively edit and proof read my writing, how to develop my thesis and support my thesis.;postID=104063582510228608 This post shows my ability to brain storm and map ideas for my writing even though it was a visual assignment it took a lot of research and creativity to make the assignment.;postID=8558209038592161026 This post shows my ability to effectively revise my writing. I ended up rewriting the post 3 times this was the post that made me start putting more effort in to my blog posts.;postID=2565757768114646889 This is the post that I started proof reading and checking my grammar before uploading my blogs.;postID=2702338786297876410 This post shows my ability to develop my thesis.;postID=2003227517941440598 This post I showed my ability to support my thesis on why I should get my work done early.

I need to spend more time working on learning on how to do better rough drafts. I didn’t have much learning on how to work on them in high school, but I’m sure in my next English class I will spend a lot of time working on using them. I also need to work on my ability to capture others ideas in my writing. I never use many quotes in my writing and I plan on to start doing that as well in my next English class.

Overall I feel I have learned a lot from this hybrid English class. I also learned I have a lot more to learn and that my high skipped out on a lot of my English especially grammar. I feel like I contributed a good bit to this class I attended every meeting and wrote every blog post. I know I could have started off better with putting more effort in my posts. But ever since we had our meeting I have worked harder on better content in my writing and proof reading and trying to catch any of my grammatical errors. Thank you Mrs. Sasser for everything you taught us it has been a good semester I’ve learned a lot.

King of Meltdowns

King of Meltdowns

            This week for my visual assignment I chose to do king of meltdowns. I chose to use a free image of Charlie Sheen and one of my favorite quotes from him. The idea of the assignment is to be humorous. I feel I have successfully managed to make my assignment humorous.

You Might be a Redneck If..

            On my 3rd assignment I chose to make a meme. The object of this assignment was to use an image and turn it into a meme. I chose a picture I took of a trailer that I pass on the way to Jacksonville from Arab. If I had to guess I would say it would be in the town of Snead. I took the picture a couple of months ago and I think this was a perfect occasion to use it. I hope it can give all of you a laugh.

A Sunset


            This week for my 2nd ds106 project I decided to do the visual assignment A Sunset. I picked this assignment because during my spring break I was having a great time and as I was fishing I saw a beautiful sunset. This sunset was so beautiful it reminded me about the ds106 project I saw about taking a picture of the sunset. So I took a picture so I could share with all of you the beautiful sunset that was over Cartersville, GA.

We Found Your Match

Celebrity Look A Like Blog Post
I’m doing a blog post on the celebrity look alike visual look alike assignment. That was titled  “We Found Your Match” the objective of the assignment was to use a picture of a close friend and put it up next to a celebrity’s photo to see the likeness. I used a picture of one of my best high school friends Dustin I did get his permission to use the photo beforehand and then I used a photo of Zac Efron I found by googling free images. I used this comparison of My good buddy Dustin to Zac Efron because all throughout high school I gave him the nickname of Zac Efron. We gave it to him due to the perfect looks, popularity and uncanny similarities. We specifically say he is just like Zac Efron’s character he plays in the high school musical films.  This is my opinion and I gave you all two examples and gave the link to the project on DS 106 let me know what you think.

            I’m a huge sports fan. I have been as long as I can remember. I think it might be genetic. Every branch of my family is in love with some kind of sports team. So weather genetic or learned I know sports was a big part of my growing up and continues to be a big part of my life. Every kid has that dream when they are young some want to be cops, firemen, maybe even the president. I just wanted to have something to do with sports. Of course I wanted to be the big time sports player but though I was decent due to my frame and abilities I will never have the chance to be that star. But I would love just to deal with sports. I was told all my life to do something you love for a living because then it will never be work. That is my goal find a way to incorporate sports into a job. I mean I always have sports after the job to clear my mind but my goal would be to find a job dealing with them.

            I think everyone has a little love for sports. There is no thrill quite like them. I mean there are many competitions but sports are more than that. They are something people train years for and people pay years incomes to watch. Sports have the best story lines anything can happen you can never guess. There not much quite like the upset of the sports world’s villains or the success story of the home town hero.

            All I have left to say is I hope you agree with me on the importance of sports in your life. All the lessons learned and the fun times had. I have no regrets with sports playing, watching anything. I have even wrote this as I watched the Heat – Bulls game.

Blog Post 9

            This is my 9th post and last week I wrote on procrastination so this week I’m going to write to show my improvement on the matter and write on my research topic. It is currently Sunday but I know I will have a busy week ahead so I’m going to try my best to get this done while I have free time. It turns out my free time is three days earlier then the due date. So I’m going to try my best to be high speed and get it done. I’m not going to stop at just doing this but I’m going to try to dig in deep and try to work on that research rough draft

I’m pretty sure I’m writing my paper on Rick Reilly’s blog on I love sports and his blog is full of inside information and I like to hear his opinions on sports topics even if I don’t necessarily agree with him 100%. I figured it would be best to write on a subject you feel strong about and there is nothing I love more than sports ever since I was a kid. So I’m hoping my paper will impress and teach everyone a little something about sports and Rick Reilly’s opinion on sports. I plan on getting some of that paper done tonight because I know it is important to get my work done and I know now is the best time for me to do so.
