“Autobiographical” Assignment

A brief break from research writing


Step one
Step One:

  • Think of a “cultural collision” in your own life. It can be:

    • A real one that actually happened to you

    • Something that happened to you that you want to make up more details about

    • Something that you could imagine happening to you because of your culture that you will make up


Step two
Step Two:

  • Write me a short story (at least 2 pages, double-spaced, 12 pt font) about this real or imagined cultural collision. You can write in first or third person, but make sure that the collision experienced is something you can relate to.


Guidelines
Guidelines

  • This is a creative homework assignment, so there are not as many specific parameters as there are with formal assignments. The big things are:

    • 2 pages long, double-spaced, 12 pt. font

    • Story should have beginning, middle, and end

    • Story should only try to tell of one specific incident or series of incidents; don’t try to summarize lifelong oppressions


Don t stress
Don’t Stress

  • This is your only homework assignment.

  • Unless you haven’t done your Cultural Artifact Presentation.

  • Because then that is homework too.

  • Obviously.

  • You will finish the book for homework on Monday, after we get through Career Day.
