Writing skills: What are the most HELPFUL OR IMPORTANT strategies or skills you’ve learned about writing this quarter (including critical thinking or reading skills)?

OPTION 1: What are the most HELPFUL OR IMPORTANT strategies or skills you’ve learned about writing this quarter (including critical thinking or reading skills)? Identify and describe 1-2 things. (1) explain HOW you applied these strategies to your writing; (2) WHY they were helpful; (3) and HOW you think you will use these strategies in your future writing. Another way of thinking about this question is what you’ve gotten out of this class in relation to writing and/or thinking. Please organize as an essay rather than in a question-answer format (according to your supporting points).
• OPTION 2: Rather than discussing the most important strategy you’ve learned about, discuss what was the most CHALLENGING aspect of writing this quarter. (1) DESCRIBE the issue; (2) explain HOW you attempted to overcome that difficulty; and (3) discuss WHAT you’ve learned from overcoming this difficulty and what you plan to do in the future to improve this aspect of your writing. Please organize as an essay rather than in a question-answer format (according to your supporting points).
~ ESSAY STYLE: Please note that although this is INFORMAL writing, it should be in an essay-style format: introduction + main point; body paragraphs with supporting points, examples, and analysis/commentary; and a short conclusion. Your conclusion should reflect on the “big picture” in your essay: why these strategies are useful and how you’ve developed as a writer, OR what you’ve learned from struggling with the challenge.
~ THE MAIN POINT: Your main point/thesis is simply what you think was the most important STRATEGY you’ve learned about or the most CHALLENGING aspect of writing this quarter.
