My Experience Studying Unit One in English Class
The Challenges of Starting High School English
Starting high school was difficult enough, but starting my English class was a whole new challenge.
I had always been taught English in a different way before, and the structure of the class was unfamiliar to me. However, my teacher made sure to provide us with plenty of resources, such as the textbook and online resources, to help us adjust.
Learning Vocabulary Words
One of the biggest challenges of Unit One was learning all the new vocabulary words.
Each week, we were given a list of terms to study, and it was up to us to memorize and understand their meanings. It was overwhelming at first, but I found that making flashcards and using them regularly really helped. It also helped to see some of the terms used in context, through examples in the textbook or in class discussions.
Reading and Comprehension
Another major aspect of Unit One was reading and comprehension.
We spent a lot of time reading different texts and analyzing their themes and meanings. This was difficult at times, but it was also really rewarding to see how the reading and comprehension skills I was developing in class were helping me outside of school. I found myself understanding news articles and books I was reading for pleasure on a whole new level.
Despite the challenges, I found that studying Unit One in my high school English class was a really valuable experience.
I learned so much about the English language and literature, and I developed skills that I know will serve me well throughout my academic and professional career. I am grateful for my teacher’s support throughout the process, and I look forward to continuing to improve in this subject throughout the rest of high school.
