Deep Ellum is an interesting name. Where did the name come from? And I am not sure what Deep Ellum itself is. Is it a neighborhood in Dallas? Or is it a kind of mall?

1. This essay has potential. The major problem is that you do not develop your ideas sufficiently. For instance try to extend the descriptions of the places you are describing. Remember it is a descriptive essay!
2. You need to include a better hook ( introduction). Maybe try to come up with an introduction that will catch the attention of the reader. You need/must include transitional words if you want to have a well organized essay.
3. In your word what is Deep Ellum? I had trouble to figure out!can you tell me more? You made some grammar mistakes!
4. Try to put more pictures!! where we can see you in the center!
5. In the beginning, the change that you can make is to write “ Deep Ellum is one of the most interesting places in term of history . Furthermore, I would like to discuss about all of the terms mentioned in my essay.
