This summer school I truly believe was better than my regular English class I took this year. It was short but sweet, meaning in the little time I have spent are learned a great big deal of stuff. Where to began, well coming into Mr. Leh’s class was very interesting. I honestly did not know what to expect. I didn’t know what kind of teacher he would be and how he taught. The first couple of days were horrible. I did not like his teaching strategies at all. The whole spelling test things were just hard to get. I don’t know what it was it just wasn’t for me. I like to write, and I think lots of others did to. Mr. Leh recognized that and changed his whole teaching strategies around.

This class overall was wonderful. It taught me many things about what is going on in our world today. There are all these problems happening that I never would have even thought twice about. But then Mr. Leh changed my whole perspective on just everything in general. I never knew I had a voice in this world at my age. I want change and I thought that could only happen when I became an adult. Boy was I ever wrong. There are so many things you can do to take action. So many different websites and things you can go to, to get your voice heard.

Before when I heard of the natural disaster that’s going on now which is the oil spill I never really paid attention. I always thought oh well it is somebody else’s problem not mine. They caused it then they can fix it. Once again I was wrong and Mr. Leigh helped me see that. His generation is the ones causing problems to this beautiful world. It is now going to be up to me and my generation to fix things, if it we even have enough time.

When I first started this class I was a pretty bad writer. Always wanting to just write with a paper and pen. But this class helped me see that things aren’t really done that way anymore. This world is changing very rapidly into the technology era. Before I really wouldn’t blog, or even use the computer because I really did not know how. But once I learned I love it. If it weren’t for this class I still would have been clueless to what going on in this world and what is happening all around me. All aspects of this class were helpful. I believe I became a well developed writer through this class. My grammar is a lot better. I can now develop my paragraphs better. Before I you would ask me to write an 800 word essay I would think you were crazy. But now I would say no problem. This class not only taught me about writing, grammar, and spelling but it taught me to want to make change and help make this world a better place. This class changed my view of this world, and made me into a better writer and I thank Mr. Lehfor that!
