Essay: When Bears and Humans Collide

This was my final essay for my Advanced Composition course in the spring of 2012. The assignment was to write a multi-genre paper that combined several different genres of writing into one effective whole. Dr. Brauer's final comment reads:
"Given the topic, the juxtaposition of personal narrative and expository writing makes sense. That said, the expository sections rely heavily on source material and you leave little room to develop a sophisticated rhetorical purpose. B"
There's definitely room for improvement in this essay, but a B from Dr. Brauer is like an A from some other professors, so in the end I was still very happy with the outcome.
