I can't even write an essay. Sure, I can write in my journal and maybe even become the next Shakespeare if I had to. However, I can't even write an essay if I'm asked to, especially if I have to write an essay in like, 90 minutes for a state issued test.
For example, when asked to write an argumentative essay, they just say to make a claim and prove opposing claims wrong. However, when I "refute opposite claims," refuting the opposing claim supports the existing claim. Plus, many teachers tell me to use text leading up to the quote. However, when I try to do that, it actually explains why the piece of evidence supports my claim.
