To start our Essay 1 unit, we are reading this week: “Why I Write” by George Orwell and “Excerpts from Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah.
You can find them in our class reader. These readings focus on the authors’ relationship with language and to an extent reading. After you have read and annotated both pieces, please submit an annotation worksheet which I have supplied.
You can submit one combined annotation worksheet with the information from each work, or submit a separate worksheet for each piece. Once you have finished the annotation worksheet, please write up an academic summary for both readings.
To receive full credit, you must fill out the entire annotation worksheet and submit a completed academic summary for each text. Notice: the Annotation Worksheet Template has been updated.
- Once again, the following readings for the week are located in our class reader:
“Why I Write” by George Orwell
“Excerpts from Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah
