(600-900 words) Construct a narrative essay, formatted and designed according to MLA/Syllabus standards.

  1. Create an introduction paragraph at the start of your essay, establishing your topic before telling the story–do not give a simplistic moral to the story, but do make clear why this incident matters to you.
  2. Recount a story from your life in which either you yourself were, or you witnessed first-hand someone being discriminated against–an event or circumstance in which there was an unjust or prejudicial treatment either against you or that you witnessed against another. The story should have a central scene upon which it focuses, with identifiable plot, characters, setting, and imagery as taught in class and described below:
    • Plot: the story-line, sequence of events should present to the audience a clear situation that needs resolution.
    • Characters: show more than tell, through imagery and action (there must be some dialog).
    • Setting: show more than tell, using imagery–show where and when the story takes place.

Mechanics/Style Markings Key
(re. the notations in my grading of your essay )

    • ¶ (insert paragraph break) recommended either because current paragraphs are too long, or because a paragraph break is needed in dialogue whenever a new character acts or speaks.
    • AWK (awkward syntax): you’ve constructed a sentence that generally doesn’t read well or is not consistent with formal/academic diction. (Often the solution is to read your writing aloud before turning it in—you’ll often catch with your ear how awkwardly it reads and can fix it.)

    • CS (comma splice): you should not join two independent clauses with only a comma.

    • DEN (denotation error): though the word you used is an actual word, you’ve spelled/used the wrong word for what you mean.

    • DQ (drop quote): whenever you have quotations you must have a signal phrase attached to the quote, in that same sentence. If you (1) want to lead into a quote with an independent clause, then end the would-be signal phrase with a colon (not a period), followed by the quote (first word of quote capitalized)—for example: Smith knew what he was saying: "Whatever we believe…; or (2) you can simply lead into the quote with the author’s last name, a verb, and a comma—Smith said, “Whatever we believe…; or (3) flow the signal phrase into the quote—Smith said that "whatever we believe…"

    • FRAG (fragment sentence): you should not punctuate a dependent clause as if it were a complete sentence. (Usually the clause is missing a subject, or it just doesn’t make grammatical sense without the clause before or after it.)

    • FUS (fused sentence): you should not join two independent clauses without any punctuation (this is basically a comma splice without even the comma).

    • SP (spelling error)

    • VO (passive voice): stylistically, you should avoid constructing a sentence so that the object of the verb is written as the subject. (e.g., “The lamp has been broken.” [So who broke the lamp?] So—John broke the lamp.])
