In-Class Reflection

As I mentioned in class last week, due to the snow days we will start working on your reflection papers during class and you will  turn them in via Dropbox the following day. This insures that you have time to ask questions during class time and changes how harshly I will grade them.

For your first reflection, you will write a 1-2 page essay based around one of the following four options:

1. Write a response to Malcolm X’s “The Ballot or the Bullet” using President Barack Obama’s persona from”A More Perfect Union.”

2. Write a response to President Barack Obama’s “A More Perfect Union” using Malcolm X’s persona from “The Ballot or the Bullet.”

3. Write a response to Stokely Carmichael’s “Black Power” speech using President Barack Obama’s persona from “A More Perfect Union.”

4. Write a response to President Barack Obama’s “A More Perfect Union” using Stokely Carmichael’s “Black Power” speech.

When I say to use the author’s persona, I’m asking you to mimic their tone, diction, and how they utilize the rhetorical appeals. Aside from those specifics, I want you to be creative and have fun with the assignment.

Your completed reflection must be posted in Dropbox no later than 11:59 pm on Friday, February 28, 2014. Reflections are worth 25 points.
