Although this prompt is similar to other background or community prompts, this one has a really interesting phrase: one of your unique identities. Theyre inviting you to think about the many different sides of yourself and the various environments in which you interact. So how do you pick which unique identity to write about?

To start generating topics, brainstorm words and phrases about who you are as a person. Think of your unique traits, values, beliefs, and formative experiences. How might your family, friends, teachers, coworkers, teammatesor perhaps even strangersdescribe you? Be specific, but dont worry about using full sentences; the idea here is to collect concrete details about your various identities.

Keep in mind that you dont have to focus on your culture, race, or political beliefs; you could discuss something as lighthearted as how youre known as the world traveler, the animal lover, or the ping-pong player among your friends.

Now its time to pick an identity to write about. Looking over what you wrote, jot down some notes about which items are most meaningful to youand why.

For each identity, consider ways youve contributed to making a group or community more diverse and full of varied perspectives. Think of ideals you hold and roles you play; how have these helped youand othersto grow?

Once youve narrowed down and reflected on your unique identity of choice, its time to start writing your essay!

These can be complex topicsso dont be afraid to describe some challenging moments and difficult lessons learned! Perhaps you recall a time you felt bullied or excluded because someone couldnt accept who you are, or a time you were able to help someone out of a difficult situation by offering your unique perspective. What did youand otherslearn from this experience?
To make your essay compelling, describe some specific experiences and interactions, and show some unique ways that youve grown and helped others to grow. For example, perhaps you inspired all your friends to write letters to a company that tests its products on animals, and youve started a club that promotes animal welfare.

Student Scenario: Emotional Intelligence

Text of video: “I had been keeping up in class well, but recently had a fight with a coworker and was too angry to study for my math test last week. I got a bad grade on that test and I was pretty angry, so I decided not to go to class this week to cool off. Now I am feeling overwhelmed and behind, and in general, I just dont like the teacher. What should I do?”

Finally, respond to the following:

Mark is having trouble managing his emotions. What advice do you have for Mark? Give at least two detailed suggestions and explain how these will help.

it’s just a ten-minute video, you watch it, analyze it and give your opinion on what the video is about. also talk about what the video is about, only 1 page.

I’m not sure on how to upload the video, it’s a youtube video.

Transforming Police Culture | Lt. Richard Goerling | TEDxWashingtonSquare. its 10min long

For this paper, each student will choose one work of childrens literature that we have not read in class and that was written after 1900.  Think about the work and develop a thesis statement about it (think of the types of things we have discussed in class as we have analyzed books and stories).  Have evidence from the book to support this thesis.  For example, a thesis statement about Peter Pan could be, Peter Pan presents an interesting dichotomy as growing up is something that is both yearned for and feared.  You may use secondary sources to support your thesis, but it is not required.  This paper should be analysis of the book and your thesis, not a plot summary or a book review.  You should choose an individual book, not an entire series.  There is no length requirement for the work you choose, but there will need to be enough depth to the story for you to write 5-6 pages of analysis.  This may be difficult to do for a story that is only two pages long.

BELOW I WILL BE UPLOADING THE FILE THAT CONTAINS THE STORY OF BAMBI, MUST READ BEFORE WRITING THE ESSAY, AS THE WHOLE ANALYSIS IS BASED ON IT.

Write an in-depth analysis of the theme of the story. Indicate how theme will be traced through the work. For example, through the significance of the title and subject matter, through the setting, through a specific character or characters and their words and actions in the work, through symbolism or imagery, through a series of related incidents in the plot, usually ordered chronologically, or through any other logical means.

On the first day of class, I asked you all to tell me what the point was of the latest movie/tv show you watched. We have since watched Nelson Perreira Dos Santos film Barren Lives/Vidas Sicas together, read about it, and spoke about what it might mean, and how it goes about conveying its meaning. For the introductory paragraph assignments, some of you relied heavily on summary, but I hope that after reading chapter 2 of the textbook, we have a better understanding of what kinds of summary enhance a thesis, and what kinds of summary distract from a thesis.
For the first paper, Id like you to write 600-900 words analyzing what the meaning/message of the film might be, and how the film goes about demonstrating its point. Be sure to only include summary that you can specifically tie into the larger point about the film that you are making in your paper. Be sure to clearly lay out your claim and your evidence in your thesis statement.
You may include quotes from the review we read of the film in your essay, but be sure to use MLA format in-text citations to properly cite the author. Since its an online article, that means all you have to do is write the authors name in parenthesis after the quote, like this: (Laurier)
I will not require a Works Cited page for this assignment.
In your conclusion, you may discuss if/how you think this film reflects issues in the world today, either through something youve read in the news, or personal experience.
Use 12 pt Times New Roman font, double spacing, and 1 inch margins on the page borders.
