Personal Writing

Why are we doing this?

  • "The most fascinating topic to any person is himself" (someone said something like this - Dale Carnegie?)

Learning Targets

  • I can write about episodes from my life in an informative and entertaining manner.
  • I can state my beliefs in a clear and strong manner.
  • I can write reflectively about my own learning, processes of producing writing or other projects, and group processes.
