Unit 1: Personal and Academic Writing

In Unit 1, students first make the transition from writing for themselves to writing with others in mind, by exploring their own experience in a narrative essay, reading and writing informal summaries of other authors' writings about a similar experience, and then connecting their own experience to one author's essay in a summary/response assignment aimed at an academic audience.
