Write an essay that is your SELFIE in words. Of course you are more than just your face. Who are you? What are you about? What's important to you? This is your self portrait in words. It can focus on the physical, certainly. But it should probably go beyond that. Is writing about oneself different than taking a photo of oneself? And are either of these things different than painting a self-portrait? If so, how? As you think about this, please incorporate some of Rachel Syme's ideas from her essay, Selfie, into your own. What does Syme say about selfies? What are her main points? What do you say in response? Agree. Disagree. Or partially agree. How is what she says relevant or not relevant to your own experiences of selfies - either taking/posting them OR just observing others take/post them? Offer your reader a short summary of Syme's piece and discuss the ways her ideas are relevant to your own experiences and what you know of taking selfies. Choose two to three passages from Syme that you find relelvant and that you would like to respond to. Bring them into your paper. Quot them or paraphrase them (even if you paraphrase you must cite the source). If it feels appropriate or relevant, consider trying to find a way to work in some discussion of what came up for you in the first 3 exercises that you did (the mirror, the dirty window, the selfie) and maybe include that in the essay.
This is an essay and should have a proper introduction, several body paragraphs and a conclusion. It should be 4-5 pages double spaced 12 pt. font.
An A paper will:
- Adhere to the assignment
- Have an original title
- Follow the examples from the “How to Write About Texts” hand-out (which we will go over in class).
- Cite and quote the Rachel Syme essay properly within the paper (according to MLA)
- Contain cohesive and organized paragraphs, use logical transitions.
- Be relatively free of typos, spelling, and grammar mistakes.
- Be handed in on time.
