Practice Essay. This writing exercise will help your instructor discover who you are as a writer. The essay will be used to help you identify your strengths and weaknesses as a writer, and it will allow the instructor the opportunity to identify grammatical, stylistic, and mechanical problems specific to each student. Do not fret over the idea that grammar, style, and mechanics will be evaluated in this assignment. This writing exercise is merely one way to take a look at any particular patterns that exist in your writing. You will earn full credit for completing this assignment as long as you follow instructions. A personal essay is about a life experience, person, or object that has significance to you and that you tell to an audience for a reason. Use one of the ideas for a personal essay that you came up with in the Generating Ideas for Writing discussion. Your essay should stir readers into thinking about and remembering their own experiences. The essay should be 550 to 800 words in length. For the purposes of this essay, please do not worry about incorporating any external sources. For more information about how to write a personal essay, please review the major elements that define personal essays in Chapter 6 of Essentials of College Writing, which include character, plot, purpose, action, and point of view. You may use first person and may incorporate dialogue (using quotes) if appropriate. Keep in mind that your essay is about connecting the story to your readers to expand their own reflection on a life experience. The essay written for this section is diagnostic in nature. As such, you will receive a grade based solely on whether or not you submit the assignment and that it meets the


minimum word requirement. Your essay will not be used to place you into classes. Your instructor will use this essay to provide you with assistance tailored to your needs. When reading your essay, your instructor will look for the following features: Structure – The consistency with which the writer identifies and maintains the essay’s main idea. Two main points of structure include the thesis statement and topic sentences. Thesis Statement – Emphasizes the main point proven in the essay. The thesis usually occurs early in the essay, most ideally as the last sentence in the introduction. Topic Sentences – Occur near the beginning of each paragraph. They state what the paragraph proves and advance the main idea conveyed in the thesis statement. Development – How the writer uses details and examples to evolve ideas throughout the essay and sequence of ideas presented in the essay. All of the ideas within the essay should clearly relate to the main point. Style – How writers chose to express themselves. Elements of style include word choice, sentence construction, and clarity. Style elements can vary according to the audience and purpose of the writing. Grammar – The instructor will evaluate your essay for common grammatical mistakes that can often affect the overall quality and clarity of your writing. Note: Your essay should be 550 to 800 words in length and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Save your essay as a Microsoft Word document (.doc) or rich text file (.rtf). Carefully review the Grading Rubric (available in the online course) for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment. Remember that the criteria will not affect your grade on this essay, but it will likely apply to future writing assignments. Finally, please note that you may use the subject for this personal essay to write your Week Three Personal Essay – Draft and your Final Essay, which is due in Week Five. If you opt to use this topic and some of this essay, you must revise the parts of this essay you use based on your instructor’s feedback and the Ashford Writing Center tutors. -----------------------------------------------------------------------ENG 121 Week 1 DQ 1 Reading Strategies For more course tutorials visit

Week Two Journal - Quotes. This week, you begin writing your journal entries. This journal is designed to give you practice in academic writing, which is very different from


the personal essay writing that you have been practicing. Academic writing entails making a point and supporting that point with information from a reputable source. There are three ways to support a point with information from a source: quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing. This week, you will practice quoting a source and citing that source in your journal entry. Please be sure to read and review the ―Example Journal Entry – Quotes‖ document, which describes how to integrate quotations. Please note that the journal assignment should not be confused with a personal journal. This activity requires organization, effective stylistics and grammar, and proper source incorporation. It is not a free-writing or reflective writing exercise. Both of the personal essays we have read this week, ―Sister Flowers‖ and ―I Want a Wife,‖ use narrative and/or descriptive elements (refer to sections 6.3 and 6.4 in the text), and each has a clear purpose. Choose one of the essays assigned this week to write about. In 250 to 500 words: State the purpose of the essay. Describe one literary element being used in the essay (refer to sections 6.3 and 6.4 in the text). Explain why you think that literary element is used well by the writer. Incorporate a quote from the essay. Cite the essay. Explain how you plan to use the literary element in your personal essay. As you are writing this journal entry, please pay attention to the areas that you struggled with in your Grammar Assessment and Practice Essay. When submitting your journal entry, make sure to: Proofread your work for errors in grammar, mechanics, and style. Format the journal according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Sample APA Title Page for guidelines on formatting a title page in APA style. Provide an in text citation for the section of the essay you quote. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s


Comprehensive APA Reference List Models for guidelines on in text citations in APA style. Provide a reference for the essay you quote. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Citation and Reference Guide for guidelines on citing sources in APA style. Perform a word count check to make sure the journal is 250 to 500 words in length. Save the document as a Microsoft Word or compatible .doc or .docx file. Use a naming convention that includes your last name, week number, and the assignment number (e.g., smith_w2_a1.doc). -----------------------------------------------------------------------ENG 121 Week 2 Quiz (3 Sets)

Please select one of the following options for your essay: Describe a person, place, or object that has special meaning in your life. Describe a particular moment or occurrence in your life that had special meaning to you. Use the techniques described in sections 6.3 and 6.4 of Essentials of College Writing and expand upon the prewriting done in the discussion forum for the past three weeks to provide specific details about the person, place, object, or event so that readers can visualize the subject and/or feel present in the story. Your description should be specific and appeal to the five senses. This rough draft needs to be at least 550 words, and it should have a thesis statement that clearly states what you are going to be writing about. For more information about writing thesis statements, visit the Ashford Writing Center and review Chapter 5 of Essentials of College Writing. The point of a draft is to allow your instructor to get a good sense of your organizational writing skills, examine your use of the strategies of narration or description, and provide you with feedback you can incorporate into the Final Essay that is due in Week Five.

Peer Review. As part of the writing process, you are expected to reflect on your work and revise and edit accordingly. It is also useful to establish a community of learners in which you help edit and proofread each other’s papers. This reciprocal process will help you identify areas of strength and weakness in others’writing as well as reflect on your own work and perhaps discover similar mistakes. For this week, you will be performing a peer review on your Personal Essay – Draft before you submit it to your instructor on Day 7. For this discussion, please either (a) upload your paper (.doc format) as a new thread with your name and title of paper, or (b) create a new thread in which you copy and paste your essay into the body of your post. The draft you share with your peers needs to be at least two double-spaced pages in length.

Choose one of the essays assigned this week to write about. In 250 to 500 words: State the purpose of the essay. Describe one literary element being used in the essay (refer to sections 6.3 and 6.4 in the text). Explain why you think that literary element is used well by the writer.

For more course tutorials visit uophelp.com is now newtonhelp.com www.newtonhelp.com

Journal Entry – Summarizing. This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal is designed to give you practice in academic writing, which is very different from the personal essay writing that you have been practicing. Academic writing entails making a point and supporting that point with information from a reputable source. There are three ways to support a point with information from a source: quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing. This week, you will practice summarizing a source and citing that source in your journal entry. Please be sure to read and review the ―Example Journal Entry – Summarizing‖ document, which describes how to integrate quotations. Please note that the journal assignment should not be confused with a personal journal. This activity requires organization, effective stylistics and grammar, and proper source incorporation. It is not a free-writing or reflective writing exercise. Both of the personal essays we have read this week, ―Fish Cheeks‖ and ―Consider the Lobster,‖ use narrative and/or descriptive elements (refer to sections 6.3 and 6.4 in the text), and each has a clear purpose. Choose one of the essays assigned this week to write about. In 250 to 500 words: State the purpose of the essay. Describe one literary element being used in the essay (refer to sections 6.3 and 6.4). Explain why you think that literary element is used well by the writer. Incorporate a summary of the essay. Cite the essay. Explain how you plan to use the literary element in your personal essay. As you are writing this journal entry, please pay attention to the areas that you struggled with in your ―Grammar Assessment‖ quiz and ―Practice Essay‖ assignment. When submitting your journal entry, make sure to: Proofread your work for errors in grammar, mechanics, and style.


Format the journal according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Sample APA Title Page for guidelines on formatting a title page in APA style. Provide an in text citation for the section of the essay you summarize. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Comprehensive APA Reference List Models for guidelines on in text citations in APA style. Provide a reference for the essay you summarize. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Citation and Reference Guide for guidelines on citing sources in APA style. Perform a word count check to make sure the journal is 250 to 500 words in length. Save the document as a Microsoft Word or compatible .doc or .docx file. Use a naming convention that includes your last name, week number, and the assignment number (e.g., smith_w2_a1.doc). -----------------------------------------------------------------------ENG 121 Week 4 Quiz (2 Set) For more course tutorials visit uophelp.com is now newtonhelp.com www.newtonhelp.com
