My Current Essay
I'm currently doing an essay on American street gangs specifically on the Crips. The first paragraph has been completed to a standard in which I'm happy with but I would like your opinion on my piece.
" The Modern Plague
There is an ever growing problem which plagues the streets of every major city throughout the world, one which has became so common that it’s socially acceptable in the world today. So accepted that most people don‘t even know how much of a problem it really is. This problem is the root of nearly all organised and disorganised crime. During this piece of writing I will attempt to give you an insight into the world gangs focusing mainly on the Crips. Which over the past four decades has risen to become one of the largest, most notorious gangs on American soil. "
I've already worked out a structure in which i will follow, which will be written below.
Introduction - Complete
History Of Gangs - Not Complete
In depth look at the Crips history - Not Complete
What problems the crips are cause today - Not Complete
What is being done to address this problem - Not complete
Conclusion - Not Complete
Now i'm only 15 years old and this essay is for my portfolio so any Guidance/spelling and grammar tips would be appreciated.
Re: My Current Essay
*** NOT A TEACHER *** Your paragraph is very good. May I make just a few suggestions? (1) I would not use the phrase "disorganized crime." I think some people would find it a bit humorous. Maybe something like "ordinary street crime" might be helpful. (2) I'm pretty sure most writing teachers would suggest that you not use unnecessary words such as "During this piece of writing." (3) Finally, may I change your last sentence a bit: I will give an insight into the gangs of the world, focusing mainly on the Crips. They have become one of the largest and most notorious gangs on American soil.
