Sat Essay evidence-EMERGENCY!!! the sat is tom!!

<p>could you give us some examples? i mean give us some interesting stories we can use for our essays. i have no knowledge bank for sat questions, they are just so broad! its not like apush where you write about history you have been studying for a year. give us some examples/stories you would use for sat's.</p>

<p>for example someone in our school drew a picture of a modern day person wearing a shirt with the peace symbol. the peace symbol is a dove's leg and has three toes or talons. the person made a mistake and only drew 2 toes. she forgot the middle and changed the meaning from peace to to the mercedes-benz symbol. this represents the shift from the peace loving 70's to the materialistic 80's and today.</p>

<p>see this can be fun! tell some stories we can use for essay examples. And HURRY!!! the sat is tommorow! if you have a story now is the time to post!</p>

<p>3 words : Current Event ,History, Literature</p>

<p>I used only two examples, both from literature, and got a 12.</p>

<p>I think they really like examples from lit. A few examples that are good for essays: Night by Elie Wiesel (?), 1984 by Orwell, Brave New World by Huxley, Shakespeare's plays, The Crucible by Arthur Miller</p>

<p>i used one example on one essay (a short spanish story on success) got a 12.</p>

<p>used 2 exmaples(richard nixon and another piece of spanish lit) got a 12.</p>

<p>used 3 examples from three different fields (got an 11)</p>

<p>i don't know what formula they use, but apparently it's odd.</p>

<p>I used 2 personal examples and 4 paragraphs (Intro-Ex1-Ex2-Closing) and got a 11/12</p>

<p>if at all possible, use a piece of history and a work of literature from or relating to that time period. they love that! ex. huck finn & civil war</p>

<p>Great Gatsby. Grapes of Wrath. Watergate. Civil War. Catcher in the Rye. Holocaust/Hitler. War in Iraq. the list goes on and on and on</p>

<p>lol yeah the 6's seem to be skewed to those who use literature. well great i just read the crucible (we did a readers theater, i was mary warren, to bad im a guy.</p>

<p>How important is referencing the quote? i never use it. anyone have any ideas?</p>

<p>all i have to say is that I OWN the essay, 1 example from history, 1 example from literature. It was cool because I took the essay and used an example from the history stuff i learned the other day from class. I included specific names, dates, etc.</p>

<p>Environment is also a nice topic to talk about.</p>

<p>Advice: For books you have read, go and read the SparkNotes plot summary, right now. Looking at the themes is also a good idea. It'll refresh your memory and give you some ideas.</p>

<p>umm i used horatio alger and plato (11)</p>

<p>I got an 11/12 and used no literature/history/current events. I just included stuff from my daily life...I think that could be easier for you than writing about lit or hist. Although I am thinking on using those kind of examples for my next retake.</p>
