College essay time! We will workshop these essays TOMORROW! Please bring a hard copy for editing to class.
Review the readings for this class so far:
Philip Lopate- “On the Necessity of Turning Oneself into a Character”
Reid Hoffman- “Shape Your Identity or it Will Shape You”
Michael Perry-“Bumper Sticker Bravado”
And the memoir from the summer assignment (due Monday 19 Sept).
All of this will be coming together in a larger paper about identity. Find some commonality among these pieces and begin to shape some ideas. And, I’m keeping it kind of purposefully vague at this point.
