Survey for anyone who will help me

Post  Inseven on Tue Nov 02, 2010 5:49 am

I expect some BS replies but know I won't be replying to them. Thanks to anyone who will actually help. Please write something you'd think some high school teacher to find at least B worthy. Thanks!

1. What do you remember about learning to write in school?



2. What is the most memorable item you have written?



3. How has writing been important in your life?



4. How do you use writing in your current situation? your job? school?



5. If you had to write a story or essay, would you rather use your life experiences or research as your basis?



6. If you were starting a new piece of writing, what would you do first? How would you begin to write?

1. What do you remember about learning to write in school? - Repetition....repitition...repetition


2. What is the most memorable item you have written? - Series of short stories



3. How has writing been important in your life? Writing is one of the most important forms of communication



4. How do you use writing in your current situation? your job? school? I write semester reports for all my students



5. If you had to write a story or essay, would you rather use your life experiences or research as your basis?

Both.....depending on wheather it was ficion or nonfiction


6. If you were starting a new piece of writing, what would you do first? How would you begin to write?

Again it depends on what is being written. If it's a term paper I would start with topic research. If it was fiction I would just pick a subject I enjoy, do some character development and let it rip.


7. Once you gather your ideas, would you organize them? If so, how?

Again it goes back to what is being written. Term paper, I would organize in order of importance.
Fiction, I would make a time line for the flow of ideas and come up with major plot points.

good luck bro, hope this helps

1. What do you remember about learning to write in school?

I remember my teacher for English in Grade 11, Mr. Arsenault. Before the 11th grade, I had never liked writing, reading, or anything to do with English. I always got around 65-75 in English before that year. In the 11th grade, I got a 90. Mr. Arsenault opened my eyes to how much fun writing could be. He completely revolutionized the way I thought about the essay, and the short story. After I finished that year, I started writing prose of my own. It proved to be one of my major outlets to express myself. It is quite easy to say that writing has changed my life.


2. What is the most memorable item you have written?

A song that I sang for my then-girlfriend, which got her to fall madly in love with me. Chicks dig music. And guys that can sing it.


3. How has writing been important in your life?

See Question 1. The mark I got in English in the 12th grade, a 95, helped me get into university. I am now taking a Bachelor of Arts degree, in English. I want to teach it one day, and be like the teacher who got me interested in it.


4. How do you use writing in your current situation? Your job? School?

I am a college student, so I write a fair bit of essays and papers. I used the skills I used in high school just about every week.


5. If you had to write a story or essay, would you rather use your life experiences or research as your basis?

Life experiences for sure. It would be easier to draw from memories and experiences, rather than try to feel as someone else has.


6. If you were starting a new piece of writing, what would you do first? How would you begin to write?

It is completely dependent on what I’m writing. It would be different if I was writing a paper, as opposed to s song.

7. Once you gather your ideas, would you organize them? If so, how?

As previously stated, it would depend on what I’m writing.



I hope this helps. Feel free to use some/all of it.
