Prof. Swanson EN101H/ Fall 2008 Fifth Formal Essay Assignment Due Date: Wednesday, December 10 th The Writer’s Voice: Can You Hear Me Now? Over the past few weeks, as we have been coming closer to our final class (and final essay), I’ve been struggling to come up with an assignment that will be both interesting and provide a sense of closure to our exploration of the voice of the artist. Hopefully, over the course of the last fifteen weeks, you have been able to begin discovering your own unique voice and finding a place for it out there in the world. That got me thinking: just because you’ve found your voice, is anyone out there even listening? This country is an amalgamation of cultures, races, opinions, and, most importantly, individual voices. Unique or not, it is very easy to find yourself lost among the millions of other voices vying to be noticed. Since it is literally impossible for each and every individual voice to be heard, our democratic system sustains the notion that we, the people, must elect someone else to speak for us, both in our government and in the world. So, every four years, we search for that voice –the one we believe is capable of unifying all of our voices into one. This past November, by one of the smallest margins in history, that one voice was entrusted to President-Elect Barack Obama. Maybe, on November 4 th , your voice was one of the many chanting “Yes we can,” when the final poll results came through. Maybe you felt vindicated and believed that your voice was heard. However, maybe you were one of the many discouraged people who felt that the wrong person was elected, and that your candidate, and your voice, were tossed aside.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
