This assignment is a total of six pages, single-spaced. Below are many of the
doodling exercises that we did during the quarter. There is one new exercise
at the end of the list.
Thinking back over the quarter, choose the exercises that helped you create
the most interesting thoughts. Write up the different exercises for a total of
six pages – make what you write different from the last time you answered
the prompt. (For the exercises where I put a range of page numbers you
can choose how much writing you do for that prompt.)
ANNOYING QUOTATIONS: 1 - 2 pages: 1) type out a quotation, skip a
line, 2) restate in your own words what you think Thoreau is saying
and then 3) write your reaction to the quote. Your reaction may be
one sentence or multiple sentences but don't write more than one
paragraph for each quotation. Make sure each sentence says
something different than the other sentences within that
description.
LETTER TO THOREAU: 1 page, single-spaced: Write a letter to
Thoreau (Dear Mr. Thoreau…) inspired by a quotation from the texts
we have read. It can be a quote that you have already commented
upon or a new quote. The letter can be: a complaint, an argument, a
scolding, a demand, an accusation…take a position and make your
opinion clear. Letters to authors arepersonal so make this
passionate and expressive. One inch margins. Times, 12 pt.
UNKNOWN PLACE: 1 page, single-spaced: do what Thoreau did, but
in your own style. Describe a place that you know that is unknown
to most of your friends and family. In your last paragraph state why
you included the things you did in your description. One inch
margins. Times, 12 pt.
DESCRIBE THE BEST DAMN WRITING YOU’VE EVER READ. WHY IS IT
THE BEST DAMN WRITING YOU’VE EVER READ?: 1- 3 pages, single-
spaced: Just write your thoughts as if you were discussing this with
friends on a long car drive but don’t write about Thoreau unless his
writing is clearly the best you’ve ever read. If you can’t think of
what to type, take a walk or go play a little basketball; if you can’t
write your first sentence but have a scrap of an idea then throw the
idea onto the screen and move to your next idea…you may come
back to it or you may not. One inch margins. Times, 12 pt.

PERSONAL JOURNAL ENTRY: 1 page minimum, single-spaced: write a
journal entry -- in other words, a text that is addressed to yourself --
and rip Thoreau's WALDEN apart. Discuss the strengths and
weaknesses. You can use quotations that you've already used but
you need to write something different than you wrote before.
Remember, since this is a journal you are your audience, not me, so
don't worry about being formal. Keep it real. One inch margins.
Times. 12 pt.
DEAR GRANDMA…: 1 page minimum single-spaced: write a letter to
your Grandmother or Grandfather (Dear Grandma...) about a
quotation or quotations from Thoreau's essays that angers or
amuses you -- when writing the letter actually picture your audience
-- your grandparent. You can use quotations that you've already
used but you need to write something different than you wrote
before. Be sure to be clear and expressive. One inch margins. Times,
12 pt.
SPEAKING OUT LOUD: 1 page: some of us think better when we talk out
loud. For this assignment, keep an audio recording of your own voice
'talking out' some thoughts about essay-writing and also about Thoreau's
writing. You may be recording over several days -- the recording does not
need to be in English. (You can be thinking about quotations that you've
already used but you need to be working on making different points than
you wrote before.) Out of this you should be miable to pull at least 3 points
that could be put in an essay. If you decide to do this then submit the
following to complete the assignment: an audio recording that is at least 30
minutes long and a document with 3 ideas about essay writing and/or
Thoreau's essays.
ESSAY #2 REVISION: .5 to 2.5 PAGES ASSIGNMENT: Take Essay #2 and
revise it. (Convert the essay to single-spaced for this exercise.) If you only
want to revise a small section – for example, one-half page of the essay –
then that will count as a half page. If you want to revise the whole thing
then that will be 2.5 pages. Remember, you must actually revise any
section of the essay that is part of the page count.
LOOKING BACK: 1 - 2 pages, single spaced:
