We have finally arrived at our last assignment of this class (other than the final). I'm sure that gives you a warm feeling inside. No more timed writes. No more textual analysis. No more papers (except this one!).
Well without further ado, here it is. Go to http://www.thisibelieve.org. Peruse the essays. Read at least 3 or 4 of them on different topics to get a sense of what they're about. You'll notice that some were picked to be played on the radio and those have audio of the author reading their submission. Then, read the guidelines page to more concretely understand what they are looking for in successful submissions.
Then blog your own This I Believe essay. You will be reading them to the class on Tuesday the 22nd and submitting them for publication to This I Believe. These can be serious or fun, just make them real. Have fun with this one.
