The Internet Cafe SATSUCCESS4U Welcome to The Writing Section Writing Activity 1—“About Me” Acrobat Reader Welcome to the Internet Café where you’ll have a chance to pull up a chair and join our Writer’s Circle. First, we all want to know who you are, so here’s a short writing activity. Open up a word document, save it as “About Me” and answer these questions in a one-page paper. When you are finished, click on YackPack, a program that records, stores, and allows you to share your spoken word with others. You can record your essay and listen to how it sounds. Your instructor can hear it, too, and respond. Don’t forget to include your first name only. Contact your instructor if you need help with YackPack. Where do you go to school? What courses are you taking? What is your favorite class and why? Does school stress you? How? How do you learn best? What can you tell us about your family and pets? What do you plan to do after high school? As a career? What do you like to read outside of class? If you don’t read much, tell why. List the magazines, journals, newspapers and magazines you read. List the books (fiction and non-fiction) you have read in the last year. What are your hobbies and interests? Is it easy for you to relax? What do you do to relax? What do you hope to get out of this course? What questions do you have?
