My first goal is to work on my thesis because in the past they have been one of the weaker parts of my essays. for example the thesis for my in class essay was "What is sustainability? A sustainable classroom? A sustainable community? Sustainability is the ability to maintain a certain rate or level, So implementing that to a classroom or community would mean doing things to maintain a certain level of productivity and not doing anything to hurt that. There isn't one specific thing that can give us sustainability but there are steps you can take to start the process." I could be more specific and more deeply define sustainability and bring up other parts of my essay that were not included. To work on this I think I just need to spend more time thinking about how to attach every part of my essay and developing my thesis.
The second thing I want to make sure I work on is the organization of my writing, sometimes when I write I start to think about all kinds of ideas and I start writing them and it can get a little off topic at times. Sometimes I also might not use the best words I could have to transition in a way that makes every part connect and make sense to the reader. In my second to last paragraph of my in class essay I talk about how the environment of Animas compared to Dhs is completely different but the way I Incorporated it into my writing made it seem a little out of place and off topic where in my head it was supporting the idea of how much a difference physical environment makes. One way I can work on this is by planning out my essays and paying close attention to what im putting in anf spend extra time refining my transitions.
Careful Thinking/ Argumentation
The third goal I want to work on includes both of the above but also a little but more. I really want to figure out how to better word and think out every situation in my writing to prove my point the best that I can. I want to start going more in depth into topics when i'm writing essays about them so they are more than just the everyday thought you always read about. I want to be able to catch people off guard and really make them think about things.
