Please write a 700 to 1000 word essay in which you write a letter to a future English 109: Research Writing student, providing advice on how to succeed in the course. You may use the word “I” and discuss your own paper, but you should avoid the over-use of the word “you” (though the implied form of “you” is acceptable).
Overall, your goal should be to show me that you learned something in this course. If you want to do well on this paper, avoid writing a generic essay. Instead, include original ideas and specific examples that set your essay apart from the others.
You are allowed to bring notes, but they must be fewer than 100 words and should not contain full sentences.
Please remember to write neatly and proofread after you are finished writing.
