During the course of the quarter, I feel that I have progressed somewhat. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge on rhetorical strategies and how to present arguments effectively.

This usually was because I never needed to do many revisions in high school and especially since high school was much easier than now. Also, I progressed enough to understand how to use the pathos in one text and turn it into something entirely different yet arguing the same things. “The strongest feeling I received from the text Inception is the cliched saying of .
