Telling Your Story

Presentation and narrative due in class on

Wednesday, January 15

One to two pages, typed, printed out, and stapled.

The presentation counts as 10% of your final grade and the narrative counts as 10% of your final grade.

This assignment consists of both a presentation and a write-up. We will break up into groups of around four, and each of you will introduce yourselves in a five to ten-minute presentation to the other people in your group.

The written component will consist of two parts:

  1. A descriptive title that summarizes your life as you understand it and that gives a focus to your story.
  2. A narrative with at least one turning point.

Prior to writing you should take some time to reflect on your life. You might brainstorm about the significant experiences in your life, your relationships with friends, family, and people outside of the groups you identify with, and your hopes and dreams for the future. It might also be helpful for you to speak with people you have shared experiences with.
