To the end of your “11-sentence” draft, in this order, include the full pledge and a copy of the content writing rubric.  If you have received help from classmate, relative, friend, or anyone else, be sure to acknowledge the helper(s)—by naming them and their specific contribution.

After you have included these items, and given the essay a last proofreading, submit your draft to TURNITIN.

As you proofread, use the following examples to help you punctuate quotations:

(comma) The narrator begins by saying, “I was invited to the wedding” (74).

(no comma) The narrator remarks that the wedding events created “not only drama, but also a puzzle” (75).

(colon) In trying to explain her own experience, the narrator provides this information:  “I ran into her in the spa” (76).
