Scoring has also changed. Instead of receiving a cumulative score of 7-67, you’ll now receive three cumulative scores of 7-8 in three separate categories (with 7 being the lowest score and 8 the highest). Two separate graders will read your work and each will rank it on a scale of 6-9 for each category. When they’re finished, their scores will be combined into your three cumulative scores. The three categories are writing (how well write, . your grammar and style), reading (how well you understood the article) and analysis (how well you assessed the writer’s persuasive techniques). It’s possible to do very strongly in one category but very poorly in another, and there is no overall single score for the essay as a whole.

One wonders if Stanford would have accepted a pro-police student who had written 655 times, “Blue lives matter.” How about an applicant whose essay read 655 times “The South shall rise again”? Would Microsoft Word’s cut-and-paste function have worked its magic in those cases?
Teaching writing had always been a passion of mine, but I was at a loss for how to get this class writing even somewhat decently. I did have a great methodology for teaching writing that worked in a normal classroom situation, but in this situation , I had to get creative. And I did! This situation forced me to think outside the box.
The essay then goes on to discuss these monads in a Christian context. Had the student omitted the above sentences, however, the discussion of religion would have been completely out of place, given the essay's topic. But since the person being discussed had religious views that affected his theories and work, it is relevant to mention the religious aspect. Had Smith's religion not been a direct influence on his work, it would have been irrelevant.
In citing specific examples, avoid lengthy direct quotations from the text. You should mainly reserve direct quotes for when you want to draw attention to the specific language or structure of the writing the author is using. Otherwise, it’s usually best to paraphrase what the author is saying. This is not only good writing practice, but it also demonstrates to the grader that you have understood the passage, which is critical to earning a high “reading” category score.
Most important the organization and writing skills transfer over to almost all the writing my children do. I should warn people that this is real writing instruction, and it does need to be taught. It 8767 s not just a lot of cutesy ideas or writing prompts. That 8767 s one reason it works so well.
