final thoughts
Final thoughts. . .

I believe this was the most useful and interesting

part of WR150 and it should be integrated into

every second-level writing course. I learned to

accept other opinions, work with other people,

and contribute ideas to discussions.

To my surprise, when the case study was finally

over, I was sad we would have to write a standard

essay for paper three and not be able to work in

teams.
