Personal Narrative Revision and Explanation
Task: In Week 1, you wrote a personal narrative about a person or event that affected your outlook on learning or writing. This assignment has two parts
- Part 1: Revise your personal narrative essay. Your revisions should take into account:
- Feedback provided by your instructor on the Personal Narrative, Part 1
- What you have learned about essay writing throughout WRTG 101.
- Any new insights you have about the topic of your narrative
The revised personal narrative essay should be 800-1200 words long.
- Part 2: Explain what revisions you have made and why. This explanation will be written in the form of a short essay (at least 4 paragraphs).
The explanation-of-revisions essay should be at least 4 paragraphs and 500-800 words.
Sources: There is no minimum number of sources for either the revised personal narrative essay or the explanation-of-revisions essay. If you decide to use sources to support your essay, cite them in APA format.
Due date and grading: This assignment is due by the end of Week 8. It is worth 10% of your course grade and will be graded with a rubric. To view the rubric, access the assignment from the Assignments area of the classroom.
