Dear Reader

Original Text: Dear Reader,


When I first began considering my writing experience this semester, I thought I was only capable of writing creatively. However, as I did some thinking and writing, my ideas changed and I now think I am capable of proficient academic writing as well. The real challenges for me this semester were adapting to the use of the P.I.E format and the process of making noticeable changes from the first to the final draft of any given assignment. However, when examining my growth, it is clear that my understanding of the P.I.E format and making changes to drafts have vastly changed. My growth is most visible through four works done this semester, three of which are from my Expository Writing class and the fourth from my History class. The four writing pieces are of four different types of writing: Analyzing a Visual Text, Writing an Evaluation, Writing about a Discourse Community, and a factual piece based on Polybius and the Roman Constitution.
