I’m asking that you submit a 2-3 page (double spaced) Experience Essay in size 12 pt. font (preferably Times New Roman or Calibri) that encapsulates some personal experience in your life. Do not choose something that spans a large amount of time, but rather something that is a significant moment. I would also ask that you submit it as a Word document or a PDF so that I may open it in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat Reader. This will be your first draft, which I will edit and return to you with comments. You will then participate in Peer Exchange where a few classmates also provide feedback (via a series of questions I will ask them to consider) and you will have the opportunity to revise it one more time before you submit the final draft that I will grade.
