Project 3 Purpose Essay: Why We Write

As we transition to Project 3, you'll write a 1,000 word paper about a subject you are personally passionate about.  This essay should focus on two major areas: describing why your subject is important to you, and then describing how English 101 has prepared you to write about this topic.


Writing About the Writing
Grassroots, as you've noticed, is all about how to write.  It focuses on how we write in specific genres and how we conduct research into these genres.  For Tuesday's paper, you'll be considering how you would start such a project - what you would research, what you would write about, and why this is a good choice of topic.

In your Grassroots project, the main focus will be on how we use writing as part of a given activity.  In contrast, this thousand-word paper will focus on why the activity is important to you.  Describe your personal experiences with this activity.  Is it volunteering?  Visiting a special place?  Choosing a certain major?  Let us know how you came to appreciate this activity and why it still remains important to you.

The next part of the paper focuses on how English 101 has prepared you to write about the writing in this field.  Talk about how which research skills from this course you would apply to the project and how.  Discuss the role you expect CHAT to play in the writing of your main Grassroots project.  And touch on any areas of writing you will need to learn more about in order to complete your project.

Today's in-class activity will focus on the process of brainstorming a project before writing, and then looking at how we use specific techniques of style to express our perspectives.
