This is a simple narrative creative writing assignment titled the "Adage Essay." It asks students to select an adage that they have seen play out in their own lives. The essay simply illustrates the adage in narrative form. It can be used as a simple writing assignment in a composition course, but it also doubles as a fun creative writing assignment. I should say that the instructions are brief and not too in-depth, but there is a great example essay that does a lot to show students how to approach the assignment. Thanks for checking it out!
