Introduction to ELA 20FAssignment:
A Moment in Time
In order for me to get to know you a little bit,you will be writing five paragraphs that discuss ² in detail ² a moment in your life that youfeel was very significant in making you whoyou are today. Try to think outside of thebox; don·t make safe choices in your writing.Be creative.First, determine your writing variables: central idea, form, audience, purpose, andcontext.Then, in your first paragraph, be sure to include:-
an introduction to the situation (who was there, where were you, when didthis take place)-
lots of sensory (sights, sounds, tastes, etc) detailsIn the remaining four paragraphs, describe what happened and why this particularmoment helped to make you into who you are today.There are very few criteria here, I am simply trying to see how you write, andexamine how willing you are to be creative. Also, keep in mind that I am NOTlooking for five paragraphs describing the event. Be sure to use the assignmenttemplate.
