    That’s YOUR assignment. No one will write it for you. Do you have questions about this?

    I'm not asking you to do the assignment for me. I'm asking you to point me in the right direction.

    Writeacher's restatements should have made your assignment easier to understand.

    One of the biggest mistakes students make in writing an assignment like this is when they don't address EVERY part of the assignment. You must get in the habit of taking each assignment apart, as I did above, to make sure you don't skip anything.

    Also, you're the one who has read this work (I hope you have, anyway). I know I haven't, and I take it others haven't either, or someone else would have replied.

    Do your best. Go get an A!
