Student Feedback

There's a reflection aspect to the final project in the 101 curriculum I'm teaching, so some students have surmised about their learning. How to react to what this student wrote?
You really helped me and opened my eyes to not only that but also to how the world and people really act.
Not a fantastically constructed sentence, but the final part intrigues me. When and how did I teach "how the world and people really act"? I'm befuddled...

How about this:
English 101 has helped me grown as a writer, and I have learned to coorect my own mistakes...
SIC! Why not just write "groan"?

I just thought of a term I will refrain from using on student papers, but definitely could: the "duh-sumption," a word that means to say, "Why would you assume this instead of argue it with textual evidence? You are actually wrong. You made a duh-sumption."
 
Ha. This is great: a student describes his paper revision as a "paper reformation"! Pure poetic genius -- a regular Martin Luther reference (unintentionally, of course).
