Write about elementary school, high school, college, or even non-academic education.

Essay 1: Narrative Argument
Prompt
Using personal narrative form, make an argument about education. This topic is
intentionally broad. You can write about elementary school, high school, college, or even
non-academic education. No matter the direction you choose to take this topic—academic
or non-academic, kindergarten or the university—you have three specific requirements:
1. Have a clear thesis
2. Use personal experience to prove your thesis.
3. Have a title
Tips
-Avoid theses that are too vague or too broad: “College is a great opportunity.”
-Avoid cliche theses: “The pen is mightier than the sword.”
-Avoid theses that everyone already agrees with: “Every child deserves education.”
-Focus on organization. Like a lawyer presenting her case to a jury, write with clear
direction.
-Avoid narrating long periods of time. Instead, narrate an experience that concisely
supports your thesis: Rather than “my time in boot camp,” narrate “signing my name in the
recruitment center.”
