Department or School
This essay is an example of a Literacy Memoir. The instructor asked Aubrey and her classmates to write an essay that explored how a literacy event made a lasting impact on the writer’s life. Often times a school assignment becomes more meaningful than we could ever have imagined. How does Aubrey’s high school composition assignment allow her to discover important ideas about herself, her goals in life, and her future? How do the two “desk” scenes that Aubrey represents in the essay demonstrate her maturing process to readers? Why might this personal essay have value for a reader?
