Using the concepts covered in Chapter 6 of your text, you will write an essay about a person, place, or event in your past that has special significance. You should think of your audience as people who do not know you at all. You should try to find a way to make your reflection interesting to a wide array of readers.
Following the steps outlined on pages 88-98 of your textbook, you should choose and focus your topic.
I will use the following criteria to assess your essay:
Does the essay tell a good story?
How clear is your purpose in writing this reflection, and is your purpose appropriate?
How well does it convey significance through details?
Does the essay focus on something significant, whether great or small?
How relevant will your personal experience be to others?
I will also, of course, be grading spelling, punctuation, and all the other standard criteria for a college-level essay
