It’s a pleasure to showcase the hard work of this semester’s writers. I am so happy to have worked with them and I hope you enjoy their writing!
For this essay, the writers viewed works of art and then described them using objective and subjective details.
Students share their personal stories in narrative style.
Writers chose a position on a current topic, examined the counterarguments, and persuaded the reader to agree with them.
These cause and effect essays are the results of a lot of hard work by the Intermediate English Writing class at UDM Spring/Summer 2010.

These essays were written as part of the ALCP Intermediate Writing Class Winter 2010. They were inspired by the NPR series “This I Believe” and based on a lesson plan by Krista Sherman from readwritethink.org.
The next two students were kind (and brave!) enough to record their essays, so their words can be heard in their own voices.
