Directions: Please respond to both of the following prompts. Number each response and include them in one document. You do not need to include a Works Cited page. Remember to be original in your writing. Do not paraphrase or cite secondary sources from the course. Only use your own words to write this Final.

  • During this term, you have read and analyzed a significant amount of literature and discussed how these pieces connect to and reflect modern identities in society (see below info and use the 4 pieces that I listed out). Please discuss what you have learned, how you have grown, or how your views on identity have changed. For example, you might discuss how your views have been further defined; how you became aware of aspects of your life and/or others’ lives that you had not considered before; or what you learned about identity, history, and society.
