Community plays an important role in learning -- especially for writers. This reflection and writing activity is intended to help you understand more about why I place so much emphasis on community in my classes.

Spend some time reviewing the Why Community? collection (click arrow in upper right corner to pop out text box). Pause between resources to consider the questions and ideas shared with special consideration for the parallels between The Walking Dead's fictional universe and your own current situation.

After reviewing the Why Community? collection, write a 250-word response to this prompt:

Why community? Why is community important? What role does community play both in the classroom and the workplace? What role does community play in your life outside school and work?
