1. The piece is a minimum of 500 words. My word count is in parentheses beside my name.

3. I used the correct MLA format for heading.
4. I doublespaced the whole piece.
5. I included at least five specific examples to support what I’m saying--these five specific examples are highlighted in yellow.
