There's only one day left ...
So far, I've had a grand total of ... uh ... zero entries in the current writing challenge. With only 24 hours to go, that's not exactly a great turnout.
To recap, the challenge was to write a blog post in response to an essay prompt that I used in my essay writing class this term. The students had chosen an unusual topic, cuisine, instead of the oft-used contemporary social or political issues. So I thought I'd open it out to my readers and see what you could come up with. Unless you're actually enrolled in a college-prep essay writing course, you don't need to constrain yourself to what you might consider to be an essay (although I actually have a pretty broad definition); instead, write in response to the prompt in whatever way you feel moved.
So, write a blog post and put a link to it in the comments here, or if you don't have a blog, send your entry in email to byrnes.carol.anne (at) gmail.com and I'll post it here. Deadline is midnight (in whatever time zone you're in) March 31.
Essay 4 (in-class)
Choose one of the following topics and write an essay that meets the English 0950 course objectives (clear main idea, good support, consideration for an educated reader, organization, reasonably correct mechanics):
· What is your favorite cuisine? Give details to explain why.
· Define “American cuisine.” What sets American cuisine apart from others?
· How does the enjoyment of food bring people together? Give examples from your own experience and/or from materials you have read.
· Red or green? Explain.
· Write a review of your favorite restaurant. Use details and examples to show the reader why he or she should eat there.
· In what way does the cuisine of a country or region reflect its culture? Show the connection using specific details.
