Demonstrate your current skill level in writing
Record your attendance in the class
“A Place to Begin” by Michelle Nguyen (A Writer’s Reference, pages 32-33) is responding to a similar piece of writing so you can use it as an example of how this piece should sound.
Help your instructor to get an idea what your writing is like by describing in about 2 pages (600 words) the most important piece of writing you have ever done and explaining why it was so important. You must write about something that you have written in the past. This assignment is a very personal piece of writing, so first person (“I” “me” and “my”) is appropriate. The writing you describe does not have to be a piece you wrote for school; it can be a job application, a letter, or anything else that turned out to be important. You should define what “important” means— perhaps it was important to you but not to anyone else. Explain why it mattered.
Something instructors notice when grading this assignment: a tendency to forget about the piece of writing itself. This should be the focal point of your essay! State clearly as soon as you can what it was and why it was important. Describe the piece of writing as much as you can. And fill in whatever details you think are necessary to better understand it (about you, about your life, about anything else) from there.
2 pages (600 words)
