Personal Narrative Essays

Please remember that your personal narrative essay is due Wednesday. We have reserved the computer lab for Tuesday's entire class period in order to finish editing them. If you need to finish your essay at home, you should bring a disk upon which to save the work we do in class. If you do not have access to Microsoft Word at home, you should plan to handwrite the essay neatly before Wednesday. In either case, the final copy will be due when you come to class on Wednesday.

Let me repeat for the "umpteenth" time: Your grade on this writing piece is an important grade for this 9 weeks since it represents many days' work. Your essay will illustrate whether or not you learned the concepts we've studied for the last 6 weeks or so. In this way it is a "test" of the grammar and writing skills we have attempted to learn during this grading period. Be sure that your final essay shows what you know about effective writing, sentence structure, and punctuation.
