Is it possible that you answered the wrong question or something? I've done that, where I've gone off on such a long tangent it seemed like I was writing a different essay, and the rest was History.

There's nothing worse than those people. Give a teacher a hard time for doing their job and then complaining about getting a low grade when you didn't even do your work. Some people are so entitled that they don't realize education is a privilege and think good grades should just be handed to them.

One of the teachers I had graded on what she thought you deserved, rather than what you got. I got a better grade than I should have sometimes, but also worse other times. It seemed to even out in the end.

That's not entirely true, #50. When I was in year 7, I had the worst English teacher I'd ever had, and despite listening in class and revision, I got terrible grades at the end of the year. The next year I had a much better teacher, and I got much higher grades.

My English 104 prof once wrote "This NEEDS citation" beside the line "Mary Shelley was a prominent literary figure of the Victorian era" on an essay of mine... She also docked me a letter grade on said essay for that line. Sometimes you just can't win.

#52: hate to break it to you, but your prof was right. Any statement like that should be supported by a reference to evidence. Just because an author or artist is well known now, doesn't mean they were prominent or even known in their own time

Yeah but that was in a beginning English class. I'm in law school and my professors will just stop reading if I have a sentence that isn't properly cited, but that's okay because I expect to be held to a higher standard now. An English 104 teacher should be more chill.

If your 100-level teachers never held you to things like citations, you wouldn't be able to do them now in your higher-level classes. Your English professor did the right thing to prepare you for the future.

Hm reread the assignment and the work you did, if it still makes sense to you then go up and talk to your teach. Maybe he/she just misinterpreted what you wrote and when you explain it, you could get some points back.

That's not how it works. Essays must be clear and concise, and the points easy to understand. It is highly unlikely that op will convince the teacher to change the grade...
