I’ve obviously been grading. Freshmen tend to make more frequent comical errors than juniors do, which is one of the very few benefits of teaching the lower levels. The assignement was to write a short story that included exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and resolution. The writing I’m about to show you is pretty hilarious, but I apologize in advance if you find it offensive.
“We both turned to our bags and pulled out a small brown journal with a crippled black boy tied around it.”
I hope that makes you smile.
