After watching the videos and reading chapters 11 and 12 you should be familiar with description. Now it is your turn to try it.
For this essay you will write a 700 word (word count does NOT include Cover page, Abstract or Reference pages)  descriptive essay over a famous person from the 20th century. Try to describe their physical characteristics so that even though I have never met them, I can Google them to compare them to your descriptions.  I must get a vivid picture of them in my head through your writing. Personality traits are fine, but you need to focus more on their physical traits.
For example the introduction and conclusion can be biography but the body of the essay (paragraphs 2-4) must focus on the physical traits. The goal is for me to see them from your descriptions–like a police sketch artist.
Often times when I grade these essays I will look at a picture of this person as I read to see how well you describe your person.  Many times students will leave off key parts of the face that should be not only been listed, but also described in great detail.  Remember all of the parts to a person’s head alone: head, hair, eyes, eye lashes, eye brows, nose, nostrils, cheeks, chin, lips, teeth, ears, earlobes etc. Some of you focused on the clothes your person wears rather than what they look like.  When I grade these essays I will draw a picture based on your descriptions as I read so I can see what is left out of your descriptions.  
Do NOT include their clothing or attire in your description. What they wear is not important or relevant in this essay.
As always, ALL assignments must be done in APA style, double-spaced, size 12 Times New Roman font. 
All APA essays in this class need a

Other texts assume that first-year composition students already possess the basic skills they
will need to succeed in college, but my own experience tells me that this is not true. That
is why I wrote Successful College Writing. It uses a unique, highly visual, student-centered
approach to teach students the classroom and study skills they need while guiding them
through the writing strategies and activities that form the core of composition instruction.
The overwhelmingly positive response to the first four editions demonstrates that Success-
ful College Writing fulfills an important need.

The fifth edition continues to meet students where they are a
