Autobiographical Narrative

Autobiographical or literacy narrative of approximately 800-1000 words (probably around 4-6 paragraphs). You will need to cite ONE scholarly source.  Employing the rhetorical aim of “writing to express or share,” autobiographical or literacy narrative can help you explore, deepen, and complicate your perceptions of the world. Autobiographical and literacy narrative follow the principles of open-form rather than closed-form prose. Rather than state the significance of your narrative up front in a thesis statement, you let it unfold in storylike fashion. Here are three kinds of contraries that frequently form the plots of autobio-graphical narratives: 1. Old self versus new self. The writer perceives changes in himself or herself as a result of some transforming or breakthrough moment or event. 2. Old view of person X versus new view of person X. The writer’s percep-tion of a person (favorite uncle, childhood hero, scary teacher) changes as a result of some revealing moment; the change in the narrator’s perception of person X also indicates growth in the narrator’s self-perception. 3. Old values versus new values that threaten, challenge, or otherwise dis-rupt the old values. The writer confronts an outsider (or a new, unfamiliar situation such as a class or a learning task) that challenges his or her world-view, or the writer undergoes a crisis that creates a conflict in values. To help you recognize story-worthy events in your own life, consider the follow-ing list of pivotal moments that have figured in many autobiographical narratives: • Moments of enlightenment or coming to knowledge • Passages from one realm to another: from innocence to experience, from outsider to insider or vice versa, from novice to expert, from what you once were to what you now are • Confrontation with the unknown or struggle against an external or societal pressure • Problems maintaining relationships without compromising your own growth or denying your own needs • Problems accepting limitations and necessities • Contrasts between common wisdom and your own unique knowledge or The purpose of this argument is for you to practice: • Choosing an appropriate topic and narrowing it to an appropriate format • Finding and evaluating sources • Summarizing and synthesizing sources • Documenting sources correctly in MLA • Building a narrative that conveys the “change” that comes in autobiographical or literacy narrative. Requirements: Your essay must be formatted in MLA style for a formal essay. Please review these elements in your text prior to turning in your essay. For this essay, you will more than likely not use sources that need be cited; however, if you do and for any essay written for this course, please note that Wikipedia or any like source, are not valid and should not be used.   Details:  Please use Times New Roman, 12-point font, double spacing, and proper indentation for your essay formatting. Do not underline or bold anything in your essay.
