Diagnostic Essay Writing Prompt

Instructions:

This activity is designed to assess your skill at reading and responding to a sample text. Please write a brief summary of the article and then follow it with your response to the ideas within the article. Your response should identify the main idea of the article and express a point of view about it. Assume that your reader is a college-level, general audience who is not familiar with the article. Aim to use conventional grammar and sentence structure and to make the tone of your essay professional, not casual.

Suggestions for Writing:

  • Read the assigned article and annotate it (write questions, comments and other notes about what you are reading). If time permits, re-read the article.
  • Plan your response before writing it. Use a writing process that you are comfortable with that can include brainstorming, free writing, listing, outlining, pre-thinking, pre-writing, etc.
  • Separate the summary and the response into at least two separate paragraphs. Your composition may have as many paragraphs as you need to make your ideas clear. Make sure each paragraph has “coherence”:  a topic sentence, support for the topic sentence and transitions.
  • Introduce the article directly.  Be sure to clearly document and differentiate between the author’s ideas and your own. 
  • Include relevant material from the article by summarizing, paraphrasing, and/or quoting.
