Please write a three to five paragraph essay about one of the topics below. Your essay should have an introduction, body, and conclusion and be as compositional sound as possible. Since this is a diagnostic essay, my goal here is to get an accurate idea of where you are in your compositional and critical thinking skills. So for this first assignment, I will be giving you general feedback and a grade for completing the task, rather than a grade on how well the essay is written.
1. What makes certain stories more memorable than others?
2. Why is literature important in the world?
3. What is an important narrative to you, your community, or our country right now?
