This essay was an assigned reading in one of their textbooks, so it made sense to use it as one possible example. Perhaps I was just lucky because the students did not slavishly follow the example. I also talked with the students about different ways in which they could organize their essays. I don't use previous students' essays for this assignment or any othrs because I think students do tend to think of that example as the only successful example. ************************************************** * jpbrewer[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] * * Jeutonne_Brewer[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] * * Jeutonne P.
