iterature for The Soul 
- EGL 102Professor Mignano-BradySpring 2011
Final Project (20%)DUE DATE: THURSDAY MAY 5
 As part of a reading and writing community, this class has offered all of us the opportunity to grasp newconcepts, expand our ideas, and relate to the outside world. By doing this, we as a class have developed a love for thinking and discussing the literature as it relates to the world we live in and the people weinteract with. Going forward, we strive to inspire others to do the same.
Questions to Ask Yourself.
n what ways do
as a student and a scholar contribute something to the world based on my academicexperiences? What is the importance of self-concept?
reate a Portfolio!
A very well respected educator by the name of Kay Burke author of How to AssessAuthentic Learningmaintains that ³The personal discovery, of meaning by a student includes his or her feelings, attitudes, values, beliefs, hopes and desires´(79). Creating a portfolio that encompasses all of the hard work you put in this semester is a great way to achieve personal discovery. Your portfolio willnot only reflect your personal discovery, it will enable you to share this discovery with family andfriends. Even better, it will allow you to reflect upon these ideas in the future.
