 we had to read this story and write a argumentative essay on what we read telling her our opinion on the story, and this is the feedback i got: she gave me a freaking 80 and there was nothing even wrong with it! WTF..how can a professor knock you a grade and pretty much say your opinion sucked when that was what the assignment was!!

I understand your point of view but i disagree with it.  Even though I do not see the story the same way you have, I appreciate your attention to the details of using quotations, MLA documentation, and a nice works cited page. 

 UPDATE!

She was real bitchy in her email response and this is what she said.

First of all, it is not normal to submit essays before reading feedback. You submitted this essay 4 days before the due date and 2 days before I graded the previous homework assignments. Secondly, you didn't save your document as your last name and module #4, that is the only way I accept them and points are deducted accordingly.

SOOOOOOOOO she takes her good old sweet ass time and i have to wait around to turn in a assignment that close to a a due date? she never said anything about waiting for previous homework and i submitted 4 days early because we were going camping and would not have access to our computer the day it was due. (it was due july 4)

and she never said how we had to save them until now when she rudly updated the class homepage to say several of you are not saving your documents correctly. Points are being deducted..great..whatever bitch.

She needs to give way more feedback on that. She is asking you for evidence and argument but gives no detail as to why she disagrees. That does not hellp you for future essays and analysis.

Sounds like she knocked your grade because you didn't have the same outlook as she did on the story...To me that is BS

She didn't say that the fact she disagrees with you is why you got a B. But, she doesn't really say why either. I would just ask.

Quoting myfoursonsks:

 yeah i emailed her.

i just asked for clarification on the feedback and if that is the only thing she based the grade on. I told her that with the next essay i want to be sure i am doing all i can to earn a better grade.
