Here's what a teacher thought of this essay


Much of this work looking at lifespan development is satisfactory. As the unit information for this work is not available, I will make general comments as to how to the work could be improved. Firstly, many of the sentences are very long. Keep them shorter and use commas more so that the ideas are more clearly expressed. It is not clear which age group this work refers to: please state this clearly. Also there were some comments such as the problem older people tend to have with wrinkles, that were not fully explained. What causes the skin to become wrinkled/lose its elasticity? Proof-read carefully to eliminate the grammatical errors present. 2/5
