Week 1 discussion: I believe reading is an essential part of life, if you cannot read then you can miss out in life with a lot of things. Although if you had to take some test like at DMV, they have people to read the test to you. Some people can’t read but they comprehend what you talking about. Reading is a vital part of life in order to be able to write and people understand what you are saying or trying to say without a second thought.
I choose a bible passage, 1 Thessalonian 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. This passage wasn’t too hard to read but could be interpit differently, it depends on the situation of the reader. I do not think the writer can change anything but I would just get a bible with plain English to help me understand.
Week 5 discussion: When I start this class I was afraid that I would not do well because of the title alone. I was never good with putting words on paper, I’m a better communicator in person. But now since this class the topics are interesting and easier for me to put my thoughts on paper. I hope to be able to write a good paper and keep the interest of my audience. If I could find different ways and words to explain things better that would help me a lot. I hope to get out of this class everything it has to offer and make me more aware of my writing skills. It easier when you can pick your own topics to write about, you can elaborate more and enjoy writing.
