Please reflect on your essay by answering the following questions thoughtfully. Remember to consult the Rules of Grammar, Punctuation, & Style handout on my website to learn what the numbered comments on your essay refer to. Also, remember that in terms of the comments on your essay, WC=word choice, Awk=awkward, SP=spelling, TS=topic sentence, CS=concluding sentence, CM=commentary/analysis, CD=concrete detail/quotation, and T=thesis. RIP refers to RIP words (words that should generally be avoided in essays); see the RIP handout on my website. Please let me know if you have any questions or need help.
