[email protected] ; 4-4571 Required Texts Eakin, Paul John, ed. The Ethics of Life Writing . Kidder, Tracy. Strength in What Remains . McCourt, Frank. Angela’s Ashes . Ollestad, Norman. Crazy for the Storm . Course Description English 101 is a writing course, and the approach we will take is to gain a good deal of experience in two genres, autobiographical and biographical writing. Life writing includes both of these genres, as well as other genres like travel writing. This course in life writing possesses several features—readings about the decisions that writers make in writing their own life story or the life of another person, discussion of the ethics involved in what to include and exclude, and readings from several acclaimed examples of life writing. We also plan to include a TPSL (Theory-Practice Service Learning) project with Challenge Academy students. We will pair up with individual Academy students, interview them informally over several meetings with the goal of collaboratively creating autobiographical vignettes of the lives of the Challenge Academy students in a wide range of media—video, audio, or written forms. This component involves the coordination of scheduling multiple meetings. Course objectives and learning outcomes
