Please take the following two pre-tests:
January 26, 2015 -- For your first assignment, I would like you to write me a letter of introduction so that I can learn more about who you are. I would like the letter to address three main points:
2) Your personal history and interests -- Help me get to know you as a person, outside of school. Try to get beyond mere descriptions of hobbies or activities; you may include those things, but also try to reflect on things that are less obvious. If you are stuck, consider questions like:
How would you characterize your personal journey through life so far?
3) Your relationship to the written word -- You have spend the past twelve years (at least) of your lives reading and writing. What do you know about your relationship to the written word? If you are stuck, consider questions like:
What parts of writing are you strong and weak at?
Also, in a concluding paragraph, please explain what you hope to get from this class.
