A
Literacy Narrative is a special kind of essay in which the writer
describes his or her relationship with reading or writing. A narrative
is not a person’s life story; it focuses on a single experience or event
in the person’s life and shows how the event shaped the person—what he
or she learned from it or how the experience helped him or her grow. For
example, your literacy narrative could be about how you learned the
value of writing or how the feedback of a teacher taught you to love (or
hate) writing.

This assignment has two parts. Please submit both parts as a single document.

Part I:

Write
a brief (75 to 150-word) literacy narrative which explores some aspect
of the Four Basics (Exposure, Motivation, Practice, or Feedback as it
applies to your experiences. Your literacy narrative should describe one
event or experience related to writing and show what you learned from
it or how it shaped your writing process or attitude toward writing.

Part II:

It
is important to know what resources you have to help you through this
class.Browse the following resources, and, in 75 to 150 words, describe
how you think you will be able to use two or more of these to improve
your writing skills.

Part 2

This
week, you will be preparing for next week’s essay: the narrative. Take a
moment and review the directions for the Week 3 narrative essay. Once
you have a topic you want to write your narrative about, you will
complete this two part assignment: prewriting and outlining.

Part I

The
first part of this assignment will help you “flesh out” your topic.
Take 10-15 minutes to free write about your topic. Chapters 4 and 5 in
your textbook can help you decide what kind of free writing you want to
do, but don’t feel restricted by one genre. Write down everything that
pertains to your topic, including questions your readers might have.
Don’t worry about grammar or sentence structure; this is a brainstorming
activity.

Part II

Next, create an outline as a preliminary structure for the narrative essay but be sure to include the following:

Outline in three to five parts only (rule no. 1)

Don’t describe; summarize (no. 5)

Outline whole sentences only (no. 8)

You may use as many of the other rules as you feel necessary. The goal is to present a structure for how your final essay may look. As such, an outline is not a series of paragraphs or a rough draft.

Part 3

This essay explores the Narrative Mode, which is perhaps the most natural style of writing for most peopl

One
of the goals of the narrative form is to allow readers to feel as if
they are not simply reading someone else’s story, but that they are
somehow part of it. Unlike simply telling a story though, a narrative
essay has a specific piece of information to share, a lesson for the
reader. There should be a clear reason for your telling the story. This
is where the “essay” in the narrative essay becomes apparent.

Your
assignment this week is to write such an essay. Refer back to your
outline of a significant event that you wrote for W2. Keep in mind that
you are writing a story and it is important to freely tell your story.
But, this is still an academic essay. The goal of your story is
to support a clearly stated thesis/lesson for the reader. As such, your
tale should be wrapped in a clear introduction and conclusion.

Criteria

Your essay should contain the following basic features:

An
introduction with an attention grabbing opening (hook), a well-defined
message or argument (thesis), and any background information the reader
needs to fully understand your story;

Body paragraphs which a tell the story of your clear and specific, singular event that illustrates the essay thesis;

Vivid
language that works to recreate the event, including descriptions of
where the event took place, the people who were involved, and the things
these people said and did;

A conclusion that briefly implicitly
or explicitly reviews your story, reiterates the lessons you learned and
that you hope the reader to learn, and provides a closing thought such
as

owhy this event is still personally significant,

othe state of your life since the event and how you feel about it,

ofuture plans related to the event,

orhetorical questions for the reader, etc.

In addition to the above, the final draft of your essay should be:

From 250-500 words in length, typed in Times New Roman 12pt. font, double-spaced, with one-inch margins.

Uses APA style (a title page and citations as needed which are modeled in your APA guide),

Written in first person;

Edited for spelling, mechanical, grammatical, and typing errors

Part 4

This
week, you will be changing gears and moving from narrative writing to
beginning on the informative paper. For this assignment, please review
the directions for the Week 5 assignment and think of a topic you feel
would be appropriate for an informative paper. Then, once you have that
idea, you will complete an outline for that essay (please base your
outline structure off the example outline).

For your outline, please complete ALL of the following statements or questions:

The audience for my paper is ___________

What I want them to do/think is _________

Which essay prompt am I focusing on?

What is my topic?

What is the goal of my essay?

What details will I need to accomplish this goal?

What issues might I encounter?

What is my working title?

Part 5

For this assignment, write an Informative Essay.

b. How-to: Write
an essay explaining how to do something specialized or out of the
ordinary. Make your essay interesting and engaging, and write to a
specific audience that needs to know or can benefit from learning how to
perform this task. (For example, everyone needs to know how to change a
tire, but an essay about changing a tire will be more effective if it
targets college freshmen who commute to campus-240). Do not refer to yourself in the essay.

Additional requirements for your Informative Essay:

500-700 words

APA Style (title page, running heads, 12-pt. Times New Roman, double spaced, etc.)

Part 6

This
essay explores the persuasive mode, one of the more common kinds of
writing you’ll experience throughout your college and professional
career. Your goal is to persuade your audience to consider your position
on a controversial, two-sided subject.

This five paragraph persuasive essay (introduction, 3 body paragraphs and a conclusion) is made up of the following:

A
clear persuasive thesis statement in the first paragraph after the
topic is introduced and the importance of the issue is clear to the
reader

Logical transitions between the into, the body, and the conclusion

Body paragraphs that support the persuasive thesis with evidence as well as address the opposing viewpoints

A conclusion that wraps up all the information presented in the body

PsUtilize
your pre-writing and outlining strategies from week two to help you
organize and plan your essay. It is not required to have research and
source material for this essay, though it can greatly help support your
argument. Using sources shows how your ideas build upon the ideas of
previous writers and why your claims merit consideration — because they
are supported by credible experts in their field. If you do use source
material from the EBSCO library, please give credit to the author with
in-text citations and a references page using APA formatting.

Criteria

The rough draft of your essay should contain the following basic features:

A well-defined issue that is controversial by nature

A clear thesis statement that demonstrates the position you will be taking throughout the essay

A counter argument with at least one credible source defending the opposing viewpoint

A refutation to or compromise with the counter argument

In addition to the above, the rough draft of your essay should be:

From 500 to 700 words in length, typed in Times New Roman, 12pt. font, double-spaced, with one inch margins

Written primarily in third person

Edited for spelling, mechanical, grammatical, and typing errors
