Reading and Writing are Essential Tools for Building Understanding

  1. Look in your UNE email account for an email from your Writing Lab instructor. Then, write back to them (copying me on the email), confirming the day, time, and location of your individual SAS 011 Writing Lab class meeting. If you don’t yet have an email from your Writing Lab instructor, please initiate communication with them in this email.
  2. Party Talk – Introduce yourself: What’s your favorite book, movie, tv series, band, or comic book? Where are you from? What are you studying at UNE?
  3. Using your UNE email account, write a second email to your WL instructor and me addressing the following topics:
    • On Writing – What first comes to mind when somebody says “writing”? How would you describe your experiences with and feelings about writing? What’s one memorable writing experience you’ve had – good, bad, or mixed? What was that writing process like, and how did you feel about the product?
    • On Learning – What’s one non-writing experience you’ve had in which you learned to do something difficult? What was that learning process like and what do you think made you successful at it? In light of that experience, what are three things you’d tell someone about how learning best happens in general?
    • On You – What do you love to do – sports, art, hobbies? What might you like to do as a career? What are your passions?
