Lessons of Courage

Below, I have attached my synthesis essay now that I have made a few corrections. I believe that it is very important to reflect on what I did well and what I would do better next time, so that I can learn from this experience.

What I did well:
1. I am very proud of my conclusion. I believe that I wrapped up my ideas in a way that was concise and orderly but also very creative.
2. I like that I pushed myself to incorporate my question into my opening statement. I believe that it allowed for better flow and is overall not always an easy task.

What I would like to improve on:
1. 
For next time, I would like to do a better job when relating my thesis statement to my question. There were a few instances where I re-wrote my thesis statement to match my question when I believe I should have been changing my question instead.
2. Lastly, I will strive to constantly ask myself if my evidence corresponds with my question and thesis. Again, I found instances when I did my corrections where I took examples from the stories, that did not do the best job of answering my question.
