    students choose moments that will illustrate something significant about their lives and avoid trying to do too much in a short essay We ve provided two activities that have worked well for us in the past and you are welcome to improve and modify them in any way Each gets students thinking about possible topics for a narrative especially a biographical one like the Literacy Essay by having them remember significant moments in their lives that could be used to illustrate a theme In the case of the current CO150 syllabus possible themes include language self language community language power or language perception Defending Your Life Exercise Revealing Moment Exercise Print a Copy of the Exercises Download a Copy of the Exercises Defending Your Life Exercise This exercise was inspired by the film with Albert Brooks and Meryl Streep about a man who before finding his place in heaven must stand before a tribunal and watch episodes of his life played before them He must then defend his actions and explain himself This activity emphasizes the same principle that there are signifcant moments in all of our lives including some we may not be proud of It demonstrates how writers use memories from their own lives for materials for stories essays and novels and encourages students to use their own lives as a basis for their essays Setup for Defending Your Life Exercise Give your students plenty of time to write and enough time to share their ideas with their group members This activity may be viewed as a preview for their topic finding for the Literacy Essay Ask them all to think of a moment in their lives that they re not too proud of If someone could look back at this moment perhaps a time they cheated on a test or let down a friend who was counting on them what might this person think about them or their actions This should help students think about issues of audience and the need to explain things fully to readers who have not lived their lives with them something they sometimes forget Then ask them to explain why they did what they did This should emphasize the need for description detail and development When they have finished ask them to consider what they think this moment might reveal about them Then have them share their story with their group or a partner and have the group or partner decide what they feel the episode reveals about the writer Hopefully these two purposes will match and may give them an idea for an essay topic Revealing Moment Exercise This activity is related to BRAINSTORMING activities It involves generating a series of topics that could tell an audience something important about ourselves Again it is also designed to help students FOCUS their topics instead of trying to tell their entire life stories a task that s nearly impossible in a short essay even for students who feel their lives have been uneventful
