Composition B: Discrimination Narrative

(600-900 words) Construct a narrative essay, formatted and designed according to MLA/Syllabus standards. (To format MLA style, either use this MLA Style MSWord template  Download MLA Style MSWord template(in the Files folder) or download and apply the formatting instruction slideshow: MLA Style-DIY Formatting in MSWord.pdf  Download MLA Style-DIY Formatting in MSWord.pdf.

Create an introduction paragraph at the start of your essay, establishing your topic before telling the story–do not give a simplistic moral to the story, but do make clear why this incident matters to you.

Recount a story from your life in which either you yourself were, or you witnessed first-hand someone being discriminated against–an event or circumstance in which there was an unjust or prejudicial treatment either against you or that you witnessed against another. The story should have a central scene upon which it focuses, with identifiable plot, characters, setting, and imagery as taught in class and described below:

Plot: the story-line, sequence of events should present to the audience a clear situation that needs resolution.
Characters: show more than tell, through imagery and action (there must be some dialog).
Setting: show more than tell, using imagery–show where and when the story takes place.

Mechanics/Style Markings Key(re. the notations in my grading of your essay )

¶ (insert paragraph break) recommended either because current paragraphs are too long, or because a paragraph break is needed in dialogue whenever a new character acts or speaks.

AWK (awkward syntax): you’ve constructed a sentence that generally doesn’t read well or is not consistent with formal/academic diction. (Often the solution is to read your writing aloud before turning it in—you’ll often catch with your ear how awkwardly it reads and can fix it.)

CS (comma splice): you should not join two independent clauses with only a comma.

DEN (denotation error): though the word you used is an actual word, you’ve spelled/used the wrong word for what you mean.

DQ (drop quote): whenever you have quotations you must have a signal phrase attached to the quote, in that same sentence. If you (1) want to lead into a quote with an independent clause, then end the would-be signal phrase with a colon (not a period), followed by the quote (first word of quote capitalized)—for example: Smith knew what he was saying: “Whatever we believe…; or (2) you can simply lead into the quote with the author’s last name, a verb, and a comma—Smith said, “Whatever we believe…; or (3) flow the signal phrase into the quote—Smith said that “whatever we believe…”

FRAG (fragment sentence): you should not punctuate a dependent clause as if it were a complete sentence. (Usually the clause is missing a subject, or it just doesn’t make grammatical sense without the clause before or after it.)

FUS (fused sentence): you should not join two independent clauses without any punctuation (this is basically a comma splice without even the comma).

SP (spelling error)

VO (passive voice): stylistically, you should avoid constructing a sentence so that the object of the verb is written as the subject. (e.g., “The lamp has been broken.” [So who broke the lamp?] So—John broke the lamp.])
