First Day MSVE Sample Writing

| No Comments

I just finished my first writing assignment for Composition II. It's been a long time since I've done this type of writing (or reading for that matter).

This was a "First Day MSVE Sample Writing", so they can establish a baseline of our abilities. (Hmmm....what does MSVE stand for? I should know, but right now I have no idea!)

We read the poem "My Papa's Waltz" by Theodore Roethke and wrote an essay in response. The essay was to be 300 words in four "well-developed" paragraphs where we argue what kind of memory was presented in the poem, good, bad or other.

It has been a long time since I've read poetry, thankfully this one was short and easy to understand. I thought the memory was very positive. Hopefully my essay makes that clear and backs it up with some good arguments...we'll see.
