I feel like this English class has helped me to grow my writing ability a lot. I can be given any topic or just a single question and write at least two paragraphs about it. We didn’t read any actual books in this class but we read a lot of short stories out of our literature books. Some of them were kind of hard to read but I think it helped me to be able to comprehend harder stories better. I liked having prompts to write about in this class because it gives you a little bit of direction but you can still be creative with it. I actually really enjoyed having the blog to do this semester.
My favorite stories were probably the Spider story and The Long Exile. The Spider story was about a spider named Anansi who wanted stories to be told about him. He outsmarted many animals and brought them to God so that the stories told about God would be told about him instead. The long exile was about a man that was traveling and got blamed for a murder he did not commit. He goes to jail and later meets the man that framed him but he gets closer to God with this experience. I really liked a lot of the stories we read in class and I liked when we got to read stories and watch the movies that went along with them. This experience helped me to enjoy reading and writing more.
