EN1101 Spring 2014 Dr. DePeter Writing 1R: New Perspectives on Writing “When you write, you lay out a line of words. The line of words is a miner’s pick, a wood-carver’s gouge, a surgeon’s probe. You wield it, and it digs a path you follow. Soon you find yourself deep in new territory. Is it a dead end, or have you located the real subject? You will know tomorrow, or this time next year.” (56) ~ Annie Dillard, quoted in The Transition to College Writing This assignment substitutes for your final exam. How has working on essays (and/or reading them) for this class led you to new perspectives on writing/reading, on how you see the world, your family/peers, or yourself, or how you see the power of language to transport and sometimes transform us? Compose a carefully-shaped, engaging essay of at least 1,100 words (longer is fine), in which you try to render this new perspective using descriptive, reflective writing techniques that you have learned/ practiced in the class.

    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.
