Chapter 16 in The Norton Field Guide to Writing, with Readings explains the Profile, and how to write one. Please read the chapter. Pay special attention to the section titled "Key Feature/Profiles." This section discusses how much background information you need, how to think about your angle, and MOST IMPORTANTLY that the person, place, or event you are writing about requires a firsthand account, which means you need to have direct experience with the subject. Profiles that include an interview, or dialogue, tend to be more interesting, so plan ahead to take a family member to the event/place and get their opinion for your paper. Talk to someone who also knows the person you are profiling...what do they have to say about the person?
What does this mean for you? It means that you must profile a person, place, or event in El Paso. You must have a direct experience with the subject. The assignment will require you to speak to at least two other people about the subject and incorporate their quotes into your paper.
This is NOT a Research paper! I do NOT want you to profile a person, place, or event that I can read about in a brochure! Think about your community within the larger El Paso community. Are you a member of a club, group, or organization that you could profile? Is there a place in your neighborhood that has special significance to you and your family or friends that you could profile? Is there an event that you attend every year, or attended within the last month, that you could profile?
Other ideas: go to a local museum, art gallery, or concert, and write a profile about it; write a profile of the person who organized the event you are volunteering for and be sure to explain the impact the event is making in El Paso; profile the local church, park, bar, or restaurant you go to all the time; write about an important person in your family or neighborhood and the impact they have made here.
Whatever you do, there should be a clear connection to El Paso.
