Show me your passion, but do it without actually writing a sentence that comes right out and tells me that "My passion is ____."
Suggestion: Don't actually name the specific thing that you present as
your passion. SHOW me a scene in which you are actively engaged in that
passion, and demonstrate your ability to choose details that teach me
something about what that passion means to you.
See "Show, Don' t (Just) Tell."
This assignment is advance work on your "Individual Learning Plan" (ILP). Bring an electronic copy of this document to class . You will share it with your peers, and I will circulate through the room and discuss them with you.
Below you will find questions that are designed to get you thinking about the issues that will be important to your ILP. Please note that your "Individual Learning Plan" is not simply answers to a series of questions. Your ILP, when fully developed, will be a brief personal essay, that emphasizes the goals and strategies that are most important to you, with evidence to provide justification for your choices, and promises (to yourself) about what you will do this term to reach those goals.
