CS110 Essay Themes

As a final assignment in the new CS110 class involving Scribbler robots, Professor Deepak Kumar had us write a personal essay on our experience in the class (see assignment here: CS 110 Essay Assignment). He compiled the essays into one pamphlet of twenty-two essays.

When reading through the essays, I found a number of common themes. I've written an essay describing these themes. I also have composed a number of various types of short versions of the essay. Below are all four versions.

  1. The Five Major Themes that I noticed from the essays.
  2. A Paragraph Summary of the paper (which is essentially my Intro paragraph in the paper).
  3. A Readable Outline for the paper (basically the outline I made when writing the paper, but made easier for other people to understand).
  4. The Paper itself.

Note: #3 & #4 have yet to be added to the Wiki.

Hopefully the ideas and themes that I picked up on are both insightful and useful for constructing future classes.
