First and foremost, I should probably tell everyone reading this that this class is not what I expected it to be. I’m an English minor and I thought “technical writing” was a similar course to “practical grammar.” It is not. This class is challenging because it requires me to think critically, which differs from my major classes tremendously. I do enjoy the class, however, because it’s helping me improve those skills. I know this because my second round of reading annotations was a lot better than my first round, as far as the improvements mentioned to me in the conference. I did have prior knowledge of copyright law, but I made improvements by pointing out connections between the two readings.
