1) Discussion: Putting Good Writing into Practice

Think back over the last 48 hours of your life and focus on one incident or event that happened to you or in which you were involved. It does not have to be a major event (such as a car accident). Something that may at first have seemed minor might work just as well (say, you got an oil change). In 75 to 150 words, describe this incident or event. Who was there? What happened? What objects or places were involved? Describe the most important aspects in such a way that readers can visualize it.

2) Paper: Descriptive Writing and Grammar Review


Read the "The Secret Power of Things We Hold Dear" (2007) by Sherry Turkle (search for this online).
Read Writing Elements: A Quick Guide to Grammar and Usage (2012) by Goss and Goss (find attached to this homework assignment).
Read and respond to each of the following writing prompts. Submit them as a single document.
Part 1: Descriptive Writing

In her 2007 article, "The Secret Power of Things We Hold Dear," Sherry Turkle discusses the importance of objects on a personal level. She describes her weekends spent at her grandparents' apartment in Brooklyn, looking through the items that her grandparents saved, and using the information she gleaned from these items, gains a deeper understanding of her mother and her aunt. In her article, Turkle explains that the items that she looked at again and again "had a high emotional intensity" because they made her think about the father she never met (Turkle, 2007, para. 6). In this sense, Turkle uses the art of bricolage ("do-it-yourself") to piece together who her father was.

For this writing assignment, use bricolage to describe a person close to you or someone you know very well: What objects surround this person? What does his or her physical space (living space, work space, or other) look like? How does he or she dress? Describe this person's physical appearance as well as any mannerisms, gestures, or expressions he or she uses. Show this person doing something that he or she would do on a regular basis. The idea is to create a dominant impression of this person by selecting key details, as you did in your discussion this week.

Write a one-paragraph (five to seven sentences) physical description of this person and his or her surroundings using specific sensory details so the reader can visualize this person. Write a second paragraph discussing what you think these objects, environment, appearance, and so forth say about this person. Practice ways of showing your reader the significance rather than telling the reader of its importance.
