Sample Essays

Students enrolled in ENGL 1101 and 1102 may find themselves engaging in writing assignments that are new and unfamiliar. Developing ideas and drafting can be tricky when assignments are unfamiliar, and it often helps to see an example of how another student has approached an assignment. Review these student samples and discuss them with your instructor, asking questions such as “How does this sample compare to the work required in your class?” and “Is there anything I should do differently when I draft my assignment?”
