Since this week we are doing individual conferences on your 2nd drafts instead of classes, there is no assigned blog post. However, the optional extra-credit blog for this week is 300 words on stereotypes that you defy. You can address ethnicity, class, nationality, geography (southerner or northerner?), gender, heritage, religion… whatever you you feel comfortable writing about. Tell this defiance as a story– when did you feel stereotyped? How did you react?
This is an exercise in story-telling, yes, but it’s also a meditation on how you define yourself as an individual.
Post due Friday 1/25 at 12 noon.
