As someone who has been educated for 15 years, I can confidently say that I have worked on every skill necessary for longterm achievement in my studies. But some skills I’ve mastered and some need more polishing. With that said, I do acknowledge that I need to be concise and straightforward with stating explanations and observations when writing papers. That isn’t to say I am completely horrible in doing so but there is some improvement needed in that area of focus. The reason why I selected this area of focus is because in the past I have taken similar courses where writing essays need to be written with as much clarity as possible, especially when stating multiple assertions that need to be connected. History is a course that may and will require that from time to time and I hope my final paper reflects that.
