What qualities does a poorly written essay have? What does it look like?
I can teach to you to write a sentence. I can teach you to write a paragraph.
I cannot teach you to have to anything to say.
Paragraph Structure:
1. Claim
2. Data
3. Commentary
What do these mean?
Passing Grade Tips (5)
•More analysis, insight, and perception, by explaining MEANING of the passage instead of plot
•Trust your reader has read the book
•Make the plot summary the subordinate clause. “When Silas Marner is going to the townspeople asking for their help, she is conveying _________________ (meaning) by ____________________ (technique)"
•Subject of the sentence should be the literary element or technique, not the character.
•Cut the BS! (Anything that is general and repetitive)

We write for two reasons: to write what we know and what to cover up what they don’t know. And covering up takes a lot longer. If you PLAN AHEAD, you won't ramble.

Just sit back and think. The first idea isn’t always the best. Think of it as the first party guest. Relax and let another idea come. And another. The best essay will be the one where your hand can’t keep up with your mind.
Read the poem carefully. Then write a well-developed essay in which you analyze how the poet conveys the complex relationship of the father and the son through the use of literary devices such as point of view and structure.
Analyze the prompt. What are you supposed to do?
Read the poem carefully. Then write a well-developed essay in which you analyze how the poet conveys the complex relationship of the father and the son through the use of literary devices such as point of view and structure.
NOW read the piece. As you go, annotate to find anything and everything in the piece that proves the answer the the question.
The question asks you to discuss the complex relationship between the father and son. "Complex" means that there are two sides to the story. So, find the father's view of the relationship and the son's view of the relationship.
Before you go on to Step 2, ask yourself "What is this piece about?"
Identify those examples as literary devices and explain HOW they show the relationship between the father and son.
Your argument needs to be:
organized
rational
full of evidence
Read the prompt FIRST. It's a waste of time to read the poem before you know what you're looking for!
Include a thesis statement. Tell your reader what the complex relationship IS and what devices you'll use to prove it.
The following passage is from the novel Middlemarch by George Eliot, the pen name of Mary Ann Evans
(1819–1880). In the passage, Rosamond and Tertius Lydgate, a recently married couple, confront financial
difficulties.

Read the passage carefully. Then write a well-developed essay in which you analyze how Eliot portrays these
two characters and their complex relationship as husband and wife. You may wish to consider such literary devices
as narrative perspective and selection of detail.

Another question about "complex" relationships! This indicates there are two sides of the story. You need to first identify the complex relationship!
Now that you have found examples of the complex relationships, you need to identify those examples as literary devices and explain HOW they show the relationship between the husband and wife.
