I enjoyed the proposal project, although my group did misjudge the due dates and had to quickly text and email each other to finish it. The methods project helped because it made us go into more detail, trying to be a specific as possible in our description and directions. And us having to speed up to finish this made us start somewhat earlier and quicker on the poster project.
The poster project was my favorite. I had never printed a poster here at UMass so that was exciting. My groups topic was interesting and it was fun making a survey and sending it out to people in my section of the marching band, who after taking the survey asked me questions on the topic. I was confident explaining and it was good practice for presenting, and just sharing science topics I was interested in was awesome.
Overall, I did enjoy this class. I felt that it was actually helpful, being that it was writing geared towards my career path. I had one of the better presentation groups I have ever had in both high school and college in this class, and I am grateful for that. I like to think I did pretty okay overall, but I do admit, this class was one of the most challenging for me in college purely because EVERYTHING I had learned about writing was changed and I just do not enjoy writing in any context.
