Essay: Narrative, Profile, Memoir (Help)
Think about a time when you helped someone or someone else helped you, your family, or someone else you know. Then write a well-developed essay of 500 to 700 words in five paragraphs supporting your portrayal of this experience. This should depict the people involved, the progression of the experience, and the poignancy of it. In other words, it should serve as a whole portrait of the characters, the setting, the conflict or problem, the action that helped to alleviate it, and reactions to the situation as well as to its resolution. Your essay should utilize a few specific details, including at least one anecdote and one direct quotation. Include an introductory paragraph with a thesis statement, three supporting body paragraphs, and a concluding paragraph. A well-developed support paragraph should consist of about seven to twelve sentences. The introductory and concluding paragraphs could have as few as five sentences. Give your composition a relevant title. Remember to use correct formal language and correct MLA format.
