DIRECTIONS: Analyze the narrative essays “Forgiving My Dad” and “My First Life Line” for evidence as to how the essays are alike and how they are different for each category. Be sure to download the Instruction graphic organizer to see how you should arrange your information. It is much easier to do it this way.
You’ll notice that I made some significant modifications to this version of the organizer. Feel free to print and use the blank organizer if you’d like to start over. If you’re almost done and want to go with what you already have, that’s fine, too. You will not be penalized just because I made some changes after the fact.
This is a graded exercise, and you will use it to complete your first writing assignment next week. It is due Monday.
