English 265 is a class required by all students that transfer in with an Associates Degree. Even though all of the pillar requirements are waved this is the only foundation level that is required.
I have taken the skills I learned in this class and have applied it to all other areas that require me to write. Before taking this class I had no idea how different it is to write in a college setting. But luckily with the help of a great English professor, I honed in on the areas of my writing that needed to be stronger.
One of my favorite things we did in this class was going to the Moton Museum. My professor had a tour guide from the museum lead us around. The cool part was that we learned about events that happened in Farmville that contributed to a national ongoing event at the time. Below is my paper on the Moton school strike and the effects I found locally and nationally.
We did this on many different occasions where we would leave the classroom and go look at statues and talk about the spoken and the unspoken meaning behind them. This class has not only strengthened my writing abilities but has given me the ability to be successful in all of my future writing heavy classes here at Longwood.
