Portfolio 4

| | Comments (0)
I can't believe that it is the end of this course, let alone the semester! It's been a great experience in terms of new knowledge and writing styles. I definitely have been able to incorporate the clear, concise, relevant, etc. style of news writing to my academic writing. It's definitely important to be specific and clear when writing academically, so this helped me foster these skills. This course has been a challenge in some ways for me because it's something I was not used to. Overall, it has been helpful to me.
