An embarrassing experience

Assignment: In this in-class essay, narrate a personal experience which led to a realization, discovery, or change in your life; or an experience which led to a reevaluation of yourself or someone else.

General Purpose: To narrate the event, but more importantly, to think critically about it and then to explain its significance so that others might understand and identify with your experience.

Audience: A college level reader who could perhaps learn something from your experience or perhaps identify with it.

Organization: (1) Straight chronological; OR (2) begin at height of conflict/crisis and then retrace events leading up to that moment; OR (3) begin in the present and use flashback method

Point of View: First person. Avoid second person. Keep in mind your vantage point (your frame of reference) and your attitude about the subject (accepting, hostile, sarcastic, pleased). Your content will, to a great degree, dictate your point of view.

Details: You should SHOW not simply TELL. Use vivid, descriptive language where appropriate. Consider using some dialogue. Be careful in prioritizing information; avoid “over-telling” in some areas and “under-telling” in others; in other words, compress time where necessary so that paper does not go into unnecessary detail. Balance description with narration; make sure that narration is the priority.
