This is a narrative essay that i got an 18/30 on. Here are the comments my teacher left me: Pay attention to grammar. You have minor mistakes sprinkled throughout this essay, on most lines.The introduction is interesting but needs a focus. I understand that you wanted to leave high school and get your GED but you don’t provide convincing reasons for doing so. The reasons don’t sound particularly valid, and there doesn’t seem to be a plan on what to do once you’ve left high school.Overall, the grammar is really substandard and not acceptable. If you want to pass this class, you will need to ensure that all of your essays are in standard English. Please revise. I need the grammar and fluidity to be better. I want my arguments to be stronger. You don’t need to rewrite it just add onto what i have and change what i already have written. My teacher is an extremely hard grader so please give it all you got, thanks!.Here is the outline for the essay in case you need it: What are you going to write about? Well, you have a choice about which story — a real story from your life — you would like to share. You can either write about: One particular story from your life that portrays a significant moment when you realized something, discovered something, or changed as a person. Ideally, this would represent a moment, less than twenty-four hours.A progressive biography, again the real story from your life. Tell about your life from earliest memory and how you arrived at the present time and place. You will certainly highlight some portions of your life more than others, but your goal is to show what led up to your being here, today, in your particular situation.The narrative essay must demonstrate your ability to tell a story that has these features:Has a sense of time and place (setting)Has relatable, identifiable charactersFocuses on actions (events) and showsa crisis or crises, a climax (turning point), and a resolutionIs highly descriptive in natureIncludes dialogueIs clearly organized and easy to followMay be narrated in either first or third person perspectiveHas importance and significance, and connects to the readerFor this particular assignment, you do not need a Works Cited page since you are telling your own story.
