Essays are not the most exciting thing in GOPO but they do count for quite a bit of your overall grade. Some advice for essays is to make sure that you answer the question completely and stay on topic. If you don't stay on topic then it messes the whole thing up and you are in for a bad grade. Having good grammar on your essays is important too because Mr. Brock kinda grades harshly on his grammar points. Also, when you are preparing for the exam at the end of the year make sure that you practice A LOT for the essay portion of the test. You have 100 mins. for 4 essays (25 mins. per essay) so you need to learn some time management skills before the exam.
