Drexel Freshman Writing Program  English 101: Expository Writing and Reading Core Projects Project 1: Who Helped You Get Here? Task : You are at Drexel for a variety of reasons. One way to think about how you arrived here is to think  of yourself as having developed expertise in one or more types of learning or  literacy  practices. Literacy is  the condition of being able to read and write, but literacy also involves an immersion in and ability to  speak the language of a field or discipline; learning of all types involves “literacy.” You can possess  reading/writing literacy, technological literacy, cultural literacy, or literacy in the conventions and language  of a field or discipline. Your task is to write an essay reflecting on someone who served in the  role  of teacher/mentor for you  in key aspects of your learning/literacy development. You will think about a person who helped you  achieve your objectives and define long-term goals for yourself and write about that person and his/her  influence. A necessary first step in this process is to think about who you  are , and then a next step is to  think through where you  want to be . The important aspect of this project is for you to use your description  of this person’s impact to reflect on your own learning/literacy background, goals, and/or personality traits. There are many ways to explore this topic. You could base your writing on how you chose your major  or why you are interested in a field or discipline. Who influenced you to want to attend college? Did

    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.
