Express Yourself! Self-Exploration through Creative Nonfiction
College is not only an experience during which students gain knowledge and prepare for a future career, it is also a time when young people examine their conceptions of themselves as individuals separate from their families and home towns. In this course, while reading the reality-based stories of creative nonfiction writers, students will begin writing a script of their lives in progress, with special attention to their increasing understanding of their own identities. They will engage in research about some element of their life experiences or personality, and will assist their fellow classmates in their own journeys of self awareness and written expression.
