Strategies

Choose a question (or write one) that really speaks to you and your experience or knowledge. Think about how you might answer the question; to do this, you might think of your own life as a text or an essay, and interact with it in the same way you would with the essays we've read.

While your opinions are valuable starting points to answer the questions, remember everything you say must be explained and supported in order to be convincing to your audience. USE SUPPORT FOR YOUR CLAIMS. This may include personal experience, the experience of others you have observed or the essays you've chosen to write about.
