Paper # 1
Write a descriptive essay on a childhood place you remember using the five senses. It should be at least five paragraphs (Intro, 3 senses, conclusion) but can be up to seven (Intro, all 5 senses, conclusion). It should be typed, double spaced, Roman Times Font, 12pt and remember to follow the page format given you. Double-check your grammar and spelling before coming to workshop. This is a good routine to get into – even if it is a rough draft. Your aim for this paper is to reflect an understanding of both the organization of a paper and the grasp you have on what a descriptive essay is.
However, remember that the specific topic of this paper – what place you choose to write on is YOURS. You can do what you want to with it.
Make sure you include these in your essay:
Organization Make sure you include the following:
Introduction—catch the reader’s attention
Body—support your argument
Conclusion—end as strongly as you began
