Ah, let's see... *flips through Literature section*... here it is. You remember this? http://www.fantageforum.com/t11815-great-story-i-found
The truth is, I actually wrote that. The teacher scored it with a eighth grade big-test-at-the-end-of-year rubric thingy (cause were going to have that test in eighth grade), and I basically got a 6 (top score).
It was one point away from being a perfect score because I "didn't say what happened to the Grandmother". Well, I thought the reader could tell that the red riding hood was going to her grandma to give her the basket, and then at the end she lied about how the wolf ate her.
Guess what I got on the fourth grade big writing test? A 3. This is because the test topics are so ARGHHH WTH DO I WRITE, like "Everyone has a favorite kind of weather. Write to describe why you love your favorite kind of weather". That topic can be answered in one sentence.
Am I right that people will get better grades with topics where they know what to write about?
I am sorry if this is too confusing. I'm sorry also for the fact that I have no idea where to post this.
