"Great job creating five clear paragraphs that are focused on specific ways that Grace develops her identity. You're off to a good start, but I think there's room for more development in each of these paragraphs to help strengthen your essay. For instance, your first paragraph starts out talking about the Tiananmen Square Massacre, but it's not clear how that leads Grace to the search of her birth mother or her concern about China. You might consider adding more detail to show the connection between your evidence from the text and the ideas you assert in your topic sentences. Watch out for spelling, punctuation, and capitalization errors throughout the text, and be sure to fix those up with a round of proofreading or editing before you submit your work."
