Woodman, California State University, Bakersfield
Hello. My name is Michelle Bese and I am currently torn between two majors. Engineering or Medicine. I am married and have a 3 year old son that consumes my attention while he is conscious. My weaknesses in writing are many. I have been out of school for several years and just recently HEARD about MLA format (still no idea what it is). I suck at research papers, because I suck at writing about facts. I have however been told multiple times that I am a good fiction writer. So we shall see how this quarter/class goes. Good luck to all.
Hello my name is Haley Anderson and I'm a freshman. I'm majoring in Liberal Studies and hope to become an elementary school teacher. My weakness when it comes to writing would be starting a paper.

I do however hope that after taking this class that I will become a better writer.
Hello my name is Tyler Moyer and I am a Freshman. I am majoring in Liberal studies and plan on getting a masters in special education, so i can teach high school.

And i feel my greatest strength would be my essays as a whole, there are a few details i need to strengthen. And with the help of Mr. Woodman and this class I hope to better in all the areas of my writing and research

Hello. My name is Gerald Lebrilla and I am currently a freshman. Currently, my desired major is the study of Psychology.

Fortunately for me- I hope this class can fix my flaws and elevate my English skills.

Hello, my name is Jessica Serrato. I am a freshmen here on CSUB campus and currently my major is Liberal Studies, but today i was inspired by a professor and i plan on changing to Criminal Justice. I do not have a dog, I'm not very good with pets for some reason. I did have two fish named Johnny Lingo and Kongo. I believe my weaknesses in writing are not finding the examples to support my writing and my thesis statements tend to be vague. On the other hand, my strength is editing and making my pre-write much stronger. I hope to gain better skills in writing.
My name is Pedro S. Naveiras. I am double majoring in Political Science and Philosophy. I plan on entering a career in law or government as I am a strong believer in civic duty. I have a dog. He is a Weimaraner named Vinny. My greatest strengths in writing are spelling and grammar as I get really annoyed when I see it in other peoples writing and even more infuriated with my own. A weakness would be that I have been described as a very boring writer. I don't really have any style; I write down a point and don't really add any flourish.
Hello, my name is Samantha Gallardo, I am a freshman here at Cal State and plan to major in Criminal Justice. I am looking into becoming a private homicide detective.

As for my strengths, i feel that once i start my essay and have a good idea of what i need to say about the topic i can get the job done quickly. I hope to gain some writing skills from this class and become a better writer.
Hello, my name is Chastity Nicole Duke. I am currently double majoring in Political Science and Criminal Justice in hopes of becoming an FBI agent. My weakness in writing is collecting research, it always gets me behind simply because I'm lazy and it's really hard for me. I believe my strength would be organization, I find it easy to put together my essay once all the "puzzle pieces" are complete. I love to read though, which I am looking forward to with all of our different reading selections. I hope this quarter will be successful for all! Oh, and I have a toy poodle named Bear.

My group included myself, Kaitlyn Sturm, and Dominique Maez. For our description we choose to cite the first page where she describes how great the feeling of being right is. For our definition we chose to cite pg. 27 where she defines errors as something that is dangerous and humiliating. Last but not least for our exemplification we chose how she used an interviewee as an example for how hard it is to realize and recall mistakes we have made on pg. 20.
Sarah Garcia & Pedro S. NaveirasDescription: "This was the pivotal insight of the Scientific Revoultion: That the advancement of knowledge depends on current theories collapsing in the face of new insights and discoveries"-Page 32Definition: "The gist of the Scientific Method is that hypotheses which are then subjected to experiments. If all goes well, the outcome is a theory, a logically consistent, empirically tested explanation for a natural phenomenom."-Page 31Exemplification: "In literature, it is always the fools and the madmen who speak truth to power."-Page 39
Group Raymond Perez,mondo ,Miguel orozcoShe discribing in today society how we as human compare being wrong to being high. If you are wrong, the average individual would say "are you on crack" or " what are you smoking".(36)She defines the word error as our tendancy to overwrite rejected beliefs which is the reason why its so hard to believe wrogness is apart of who we are.PG 21She gives examples of the realness of reality by asking what if they are susceptptible to alteration by drugs, dreams and giving examples like the movie The Matrix and the book A Midsummer Night's Dream. pg37
Laura and Sabrina:Definition: pg. 19 paragraph 2"Mistakes may be defined as deficiencies or failures in the judgemental and/or inferential processes involved in the selection of an objective or in specification in the means to achieve it..."Exemplification: pg. 10 paragraph 2"Like the term paper returned to us covered in red ink..."Description: pg.9 paragraph 2"They affirm our sense of being smart, competent, trustworthy, and in tune with our environment.
Gerald Lebrilla Olga CalderonDefinition: Page 14. "Phrenology, the now-discredited "science" of determining intelligence and personality through the shape of the skull."Description: Page 23. "Our errors sometimes bear far sweeter fruits than the failure and shame we associate with them."Exemplification: Page 14. "Phrenology was used to defend discrimination against foreigners, Jews, Blacks, and other maligned minorities."
Charmaine, Mayadah Saef, Amisha PatelExemplification (example): The story of how Ross Gelbspan, a journalist, mistakes Donella Meadows to be pregnant and writes about her in an article. Kathryn explains how he makes a mistake. PG 25-26Definition: Plato’s straightforward definition of error: “To be wrong is to believe something is true when it is false, or, conversely, to believe it is false when it is true.” PG 11Description (figurative): “What are you smoking?” or “Are you on crack?” The author is describing how we question someone who is acting/being crazy. The person is not literally smoking or on crack. PG 36
Hi, my name is Miguel Orozco and i am sophomore. I would have been a senior by this time but i took a few years off school due to some problems i was having. Now that i came back to school i do not know if i should continue with my criminal justice degree or switch it to business. i now have a lot of weaknesses in my writing due to being in a very long vacation. I hope that by taking this class i will get back on track and finish my degree.
Hi. My name is Amisha Patel and I am a freshman. I want to major in either Biology or Chemistry but I haven't been able to make up my mind yet. Therefore, I am currently an undeclared major. I hope to become a pharmacist one day. I'm not the best writer so I'm pretty sure I probably have many weaknesses when it comes to writing. A lot of the time I have trouble with transitioning my sentences. I'm also horrible with placing/misplacing commas! I don't know what my strengths are but in high school an English teacher once told me that she finds a lot of clarity in my essays. Hopefully this is true and I also hope that my writing skills improve each time I work on them, like in this class. :-)

Hello. My name is Laura Castro and I am hopefully majoring in biology. I tried posting this in class yesterday, but it didn't work so I'm trying again. I have a dog named Elvis and I adore him because he is the cutest thing ever. Elvis is a pug and loves to snore while he sleeps. When I write, I usually have problems starting the essay and supporting my thesis. I usually take a while just on my introduction because I don't know if i have provided just enough support for the main topic. Hopefully when this class is over I can write an essay without getting so nervous.
