This narrative will be about you and advertising. Write something about the way that an ad has affected your life, positively or negatively. A narrative essay is usually told in the first-person and usually just one event is covered specifically, though implications can be much wider. It could be obvious—an ad gave you a push to join the Marines—or it might be more subtle—a perfume being advertised always makes you think of your grandma. Maybe there is a toy you really wanted as a kid, and when Christmas came along, you were let down by how lame it was. Whatever the case, it is your job to make your experience a shared one. Use concrete description to show—not just tell—us about your experience.
The structure will be up to you: it can be tightly controlled like a five-paragraph essay or it can wander and be non-linear, if you wish.
You will be graded on the following scale:
Topic appropriateness, creativity, and effectiveness
Organization and structure
Grammar, spelling, and punctuation
Voice, clarity, and flow
