This marking period was more of a transition than anything for me. It was a transition from summer mode back to school mode. I knew that junior was important, but it’s not that easy making that transition. First of all I did not know what my teachers were like and what they were looking for. This made it sort of hard for me, especially when writing essays. Now that I sort of understand what my teachers look for in writing I think it’ll be easier for me next marking period because I know what they expect. I still feel like I could have done so much better had I been pushing myself more. I let some of my A’s slip to B’s, so now how have to work to bring those back up. Being the important year that it is, I think that if I could, I would go back and do some things better. For example some tests I’ve made careless mistakes and it cost me a whole percentage point. Another example is my theme. I thought I actually did well with the first theme, but looking at it now I fell as though I could’ve done better. The things that I have learned from this marking period, I plan to apply to things I do in the future for junior year so that I can make the best of this year like I have in the past. So hopefully this marking period i will do much better than I have been doing.
