Icebreaker:A Name Game.

Review syllabus

A Very Important Note:

  • I teach both Composition AND Seminar in this Triad, but not the same sections (that would be kind of silly, no?). Therefore, be EXTRA careful when navigating my wiki page that you aren't looking at assignments for Composition or Seminar that are for my other sections. In other words, if you are looking for assignments for your Seminar class with Rita, be sure to navigate there through HER wiki page, not mine. The link to her page is in my sidebar!


Your first homework, due by Monday (try to do this today, though, because there will be another small homework assignment Friday!):

  • Send an email to me (, as if you were writing me a letter, with the following information:
  1. Full Name (including what you prefer to be called)
  2. Email address (islander account!!)
  3. Where did you grow up?
  4. How do you feel about where and how you grew up when it comes to your high school education?
  5. What is one thing you really like about yourself?
  6. What is something you would change about yourself?
  7. Is there anything you want me to know about you that you think will help me in assessing your learning this semester?
  8. Whatever your major is (if you have not declared a major, think in terms of your strongest interests for your future), what influences brought you to the pursuit of that/those goal/s?

Avoid listing these things. Try to incorporate them into a brief description of yourself, as if you were writing a letter. Add whatever you want to it and be creative!
