U1- AP Q3 In Class Writing (FRQ)

Above is the rubric/checklist with the areas that I need to work on!

The prompt: One of the strongest human drives seems to be a desire for power. Write an essay in which you discuss how a character in a novel or drama struggles to free himself or herself from the power of others or seeks to gain power over others. Be sure to demonstrate in your essay how the author uses this power struggle to enhance the meaning of the work. 

I decided to write about Jay in The Great Gatsby and how Gatsby struggles to obtain power over others and win over his lover in the novel. I also expand on how Fitzgerald uses the theme of hollowness and shallowness of the East Egg to exemplify this drive for the power of class and status.
