- Write a 500- to 750-word essay using NARRATION as the chief method of development.
- Use your own thoughts, observations, and/or experiences as the sources for this essay. Research is NOT required or expected for this essay. Do not use dialogue in this essay.
- Your essay must contain the following plagiarism acknowledgement before or after the essay, but in the same Word document:
“I have read and understand the ‘CTC Plagiarism Statement’ listed in this course. I understand that my essay will not be accepted without this statement. I have included the proper documentation and if my essay contains any form of undocumented sources, I may automatically receive a 0 on this assignment.”
Purpose: to inform
Method of Development: Narration
Topic: Create a narrative that takes the reader through your ‘happiest’ day (so far). Be careful how much detail you include concerning the timeline. If you are narrating your wedding day, a paragraph on getting ready is enough. You don’t want to detail getting up, brushing your teeth, having breakfast, and all of those little details. Likewise, if you are sharing a birth story, avoid starting a month prior. Instead, focus on the day itself and end with your reaction to seeing that precious bundle for the first time.
- Brainstorm for topics.
- Organize your ideas.
- Do not use second person point of view or dialogue.
Important: Your paper will be checked for plagiarism using SafeAssign or similar third parties to review and evaluate for originality and intellectual integrity. Plagiarized papers, whether intentional or simply due to ignorance, will receive a total grade of zero. Read the following information on plagiarism.
