As a learner, most of my writing has been APA style writing. In fact, the three universities that I have attended in the past have all required me to use the APA style of writing. As I recall my high school years, the APA style of writing also seemed to be a favorite amongst my high school teachers. They all required that term papers be written in APA style as well. This type of writing actually does not differ much from the ones included in the text reading. The text mentioned the APA style of writing several times. In my opinion, it appears to be the most popular style of writing, especially amongst college students. Based on the results of the quizzes, my grammar skills were actually a little better than average. I actually had expected to do better, but I guess my grammar skills are not as good as I thought they were. In any event I feel very confident when it comes to spelling, as I have always been a great speller. Even in grade school, I was a good speller. I learned at a very young age to challenge myself when it comes to spelling. Challenging my-self in that area really paid off as I became older, as I’ve never had a problem with spelling. However, I feel that I need more help with run on sentences and with thought patterns. Though I proof read my paper several times, it’s hard for me to see that I have several run on sentences until after I get my grade back. In general, I feel that my writing is just mediocre. However, I also believe that when it comes to writing, I am my own worst critic. Reason being, I am never satisfied with my work. I always feel like, “I should have done more” or “perhaps I could’ve done better” or “I should have spent more time on it”. Most times, when I feel this way about my work, I actually receive a good grade on it. Unfortunately, I do dread the task of writing. For one reason, it takes me so long to get…...

...GLOSSARY OF COMMON GRAMMATICAL AND WRITING TERMS Grammar terminology is useful when we describe and correct problems with writing. Though we’ve tried to de-emphasize terminology and teach through examples throughout this book, sometimes you need a definition. We’ve tried to emphasize areas that are both commonly used and commonly misunderstood, such as the use of modal auxiliaries like can, could, shall, should, etc. Punctuation marks are not included in this list; they have a separate section in this Appendix. “People who are experts in grammar don’t always write well, and many people who write well no longer think consciously about grammar … but when something goes wrong in a sentence, a knowledge of grammar helps in recognizing the problem and provides a language for discussing it.” — H.

...Grammar Recently I took a Grammar Mastery Test. This was a multiple choice test and asked the test taker to choose the sentence that used correct grammar. These sentences had three to four choices with different forms of grammar such as, who/whom, a/an, and I/me. Now I thought this test would be a breeze, unfortunately I was wrong. I thought I would do pretty well and knew what I needed to know about how and when to use certain words with certain phrases. I did not. While taking this test I realized I did not know as much as I thought and needed to study my grammar. I learned while taking this test that I use the wrong form of grammar when I write and when I speak. I am probably going to make a few mistakes writing this paper. Hopefully I won’t, or at least not too many. I knew that when you are referring to a sentence that has a subject and a verb agreement you use the singular verb with a singular subject, i.e.; the subject is the word list . The list is on the table. Although there can be many things on the list itself, list is singular and is the subject of the sentence, therefore it will use the singular adverb is instead of the plural are. I learned that when using neither/nor you have to pay attention to the noun or pronoun that the word neither/nor is the closest to. The neither/nor thing always gets me confused, but now that I have learned this rule I can pay more attention to the nouns or pronouns and choose the correct sentence. I also knew that with......

...you through the process of creating an annotated bibliography by 1) describing in general terms the meaning of the words “annotated bibliography,” 2) explaining in general terms how to write an annotated bibliography, and 3) offering an example of what an annotated bibliography could look like. However, it is important to note that individual instructors may have different requirements for their annotated bibliography assignments. Please check with your teacher or assignment sheet BEFORE following the advice in this handout. What is an Annotated Bibliography? If you have been assigned to write an annotated bibliography, you might be confused about what the words "annotated" and "bibliography" mean. The word “annotated” is the past tense form of the verb “to annotate” which means to summarize. An annotation is simply a summary of a book, article, or some other written source. A bibliography is a list of sources on a particular topic. Put together, an annotated bibliography is a list of sources on a topic that offers a summary for each source. 1 What does an Annotated Bibliography look like? An annotated bibliography has two parts. The first part is the bibliography line which should be written according to the format your teacher requires, which could be MLA format, APA format, or some other format. (The University Writing Center can give you handouts on these formats.) The second part is the summary paragraph. Both parts taken together are called an “entry.”......
