Who Am I As A Writer?
Transcript of Who Am I As A Writer?
Are you a rough draft, always working on new ideas, changing, revising?
Are you a rain storm, furiously pelting the page with ideas?
Are you the frame of a new house, great at coming up with the framework for your writing but missing the specific details and decorations?
A pointillist painting- looks great at first glance but upon closer inspection, your writing is a bit hard to follow?
Take 10 minutes to brainstorm ideas for your analogy.
Y O U R A S S I G N M E N T
You have 200 words (or less). Combine the ideas of these writing prompts into one piece. You can write in any format that makes sense for you. Paragraph or poem – it is up to you. Incorporate your analogy into the piece. Explain how your analogy fits you.
Find a high resolution (500 x 500 or larger) image of your analogy. This will NOT be an image of you. Instead, find an image with a Creative Commons attribution license that allows for others to legally use the image as long as credit is given to the owner. A great place to find such images is through Flickr.
Go to http://www.flickr.com/creativecommons.
Once you find an image that fits your metaphor, download it and keep track of its web address and the name of the photographer. You will need these during the next step.

We’ll be creating an online writing portfolio to share not only this first piece of writing from our class, but it will also be a space to link up your future writing projects and presentations. Creating your online portfolio using Weebly. All you need to do is check your district email account. You will find an email from me with a link to your portfolio. Now, you need to personalize your portfolio. But you must keep the following in mind:

Who are you as a writer? Do you blog? Do you carry around a notebook? Do you procrastinate writing assignments? Do you write down all your thoughts and revise once you’ve said all you need to, or do you revise as you write?
Grab some paper and take five minutes to tell us more about who you are as a writer.
P R O T E C T I N G Y O U R I D E N T I T Y
This is an online space, which means that others will be able to view what you post. Do not post your last name anywhere on the site. You are creating an academic portfolio for your peers and teachers view your writing endeavors. As such, do not link personal accounts like your Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter accounts, to your portfolio if you do not want your teacher or others to read your posts.
New to Weebly?
Weebly sites are easy to edit. However, if you've never created a website before, the choices in design can become overwhelming. You will find a lot of great tutorials on how to edit and add content to your new portfolio. A great resource to check out is this site:
MAKE SURE YOU...
Give credit to the original source of the picture by linking back to the photographer's page.
Proof read and edit your work. Remember, Ms. Ward is not the only person who will read your profile. Not only will your classmates be reading your work, but anyone on the web has access.
How does an audience change how you write? Will someone who does not know that you have created this analogy as part of an assignment be able to understand what you have written? If not, consider revising your piece, keeping your larger audience in mind.
The home page of your Google Sites template has an example of an image and a written metaphor. You will delete these examples and add your own image and writing in their place.
