Assignment 2.2: Short Story CRT
You will now take your 1.4 outline and the feedback from your teacher to create a polished and final copy of your essay.
|Step 1||Compose a rough draft of a critical essay using your 1.4 outline and the feedback from your teacher. Remember, this is the focus of your essay: In relation to one of the Essential Questions, explore the main character’s transformation. •Review the 1.4 instructions. •Remember to provide commentary (elaborate on your ideas and examples) and don’t simply put the information from your outline into paragraph format. •When writing paragraphs: integrate quotations, cite in MLA format, and explain their connection to your topic •Review how to integrate or embed, cite in MLA format:|
|Step 2||Edit and revise your rough draft. Use the editing checklist that follows to help you focus your revisions. Contact your teacher if you need assistance incorporating feedback or quotations into your essay. How many words should you write? In June 2018, Alberta Education created word count guidelines to help students when they write Part A of the Diploma Exam. The word count range lets you know that this essay must be longer than a page, but it doesn’t need to be extremely long. English 30-1 Diploma Exam Assignment 2 (Critical/Analytical Response to Texts) Alberta Ed’s Recommended Word Count Range 800–1600 words: •The suggested word count range is not a cap. •Word processing programs automatically count the words. Typically, there are around 300 words per typed page, depending on the font size used, spacing, margins, etc. •Students who handwrite critical responses will not be expected to hand count their words, but handwritten pages usually have fewer than 300 words per page, depending on the size of the handwriting, spacing, margins, etc.|
|Step 3||Submit your polished critical essay for assessment.|
