I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hicks (2013). This is a book I will definitely re-read in the near future. I am glad this course introduced me to this valuable resource.
I gained 100% on first attempt of quiz only twice. On nine quizzes I received 100% on second attempt while on one instance I finally gained the full marks after the third try.
Without a doubt my technical writing ability has improved over the last 12 weeks. I found the two punctuation quizzes the most challenging while the style quiz was easy. I have increased confidence around the placement of apostrophes and commas while my thoughts on style have been re-enforced. With that said, I know I will need to refer back to the Hicks (2013) text as I move forward with my writing.
I am proud to say I received 100 per cent on my first attempt of this week 11 quiz! I found it a little strange to set a quiz on one’s writing style, as everyone has a different style. I wonder if receiving 100 per cent means I have a very generic writing style?
Through-out this term we have been guided through examples of what ‘good’ media writing looks like. I feel this has equipped me with some useful foundational tools. As we near the end of term we are now being provided the opportunity to look at some ‘bad’ examples of media writing – which is often humorous.
