After reading this prompt, here is the process you should follow:

  1. Look at the informal writings you have done, and select the one which interests you the most.
  2. Focus on one particular event or situation in your life which seems to best illustrate the statement you are making about language in your life. (The in-class looping exercise should help you to do this.)
  3. Use one of the collecting techniques that we will discuss in class as a way of recalling and gathering descriptive details to be included in your essay.
  4. Follow the instructions on the Web Forum handout in order to get to (and post to) the Forum.
  5. After re-reading my welcome message and prompt on the Web Forum, post your own message. (Again, see the directions.)
