you received on the draft from your instructor and other readers. Consider whether the advice you received seems useful for your aims in the essay. If any of it seems confusing or contradictory, decide which pieces of advice contribute to your vision for the paper. Using the advice that seems right to you and your own new ideas for the draft, make any changes that you feel will enhance the text and help it satisfy the critical elements listed below. Remember that if you mention an outside source or use language from such a source in your essay, full, formal citation format in-text references and documentation in an appropriate section at the end of the essay is required for each reference to an outside source. Paraphrasing, quoting, and mentioning others’ ideas (your outside sources) means acknowledging the sources and not representing their ideas or concepts as your own original thoughts or work. Specifically the following critical elements must be addressed: 1. Identify a central event in your own life that involved a conflict and led you to realize a larger point. 2. Articulate your main point; the essay will use the account of your experience to make a larger point or illustrate a bigger idea. 3. Demonstrate a unique point of view that is appropriate to your narrative essay, using effective voice and perspective. 4. Selectively include meaningful, specific evidence , such as pertinent actions, dialogue, and/or sensory details (appealing to sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing) to engage readers, advance the narrative, and show how your experience connects to the main point of your narrative. 5. Apply a clear organizational structure that enhances readability. 6. Describe the resolution to the central event and conflict with insightful details that support the meaning behind your main point.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
