This is my first English Common Assessment task. Through doing this first assessment, I learned a lot about myself and how I respond to writing essays in a given time frame. Some things that I noticed immediately was that my expression and language was not as specific or succinct as it would be when I’m typing and I didn’t always embed quotations well into my essays when writing as time went by. I also felt that my introduction was lacking proper structure, and did not introduce my passage or text well. Therefore, even if I believed my analysis was done well, the essay itself did not sound as succinct or sound like a solid analysis.
To improve for next time, I would like to work on embedding quotations into my writing more effectively and work on writing a more succinct introduction that opens the essay to the main thesis I was trying to state.
