This year my expectations for myself in reading are to read a ton of books and write a lot of reflections on the books that we read. Also I expect to read more in the next 3 quarters than i have in the last 5 years combined. My expectations are to improve my reading comprehension skills so that when I enter college I will be prepared for the amount of reading that I will have to do. Hopefully this course will prepare me enough for success in college.

My expectations for writing in English are to write a lot of reflective type writing because we are reading a lot this year. I don’t expect that we will be doing much creative writing such as short stories or poetry and free writing. I expect that the majority of the writing we will be doing is report type writing. I think we are going to be doing a lot of that to help prepare us for the immense amount of writing we will be doing in College. I expect that this course will improve my writing skills enough that I won’t be blindsided once I enter college.
