by Erin McHale
Erin McHale wrote "Genetic Modifications in Humans " in ENGL1A: College Composition I. Her instructor, Heather Donovan, asked students to write a research-based essay on a controversial issue. The assignment asked students to provide evidence from research and consideri opposing views and the "gray areas between polarities." Erin went through an extensive process of revision based on peer response and teacher feedback before submitting this essay in her final portfolio. Erin's instructor and the reviewer for Writing the University felt that Erin's proposal is an excellent example of academic research writing.
