Literature and Composition 4
About Ourselves: Feeling “Out of Place”
February 28, 2003


This week, we will discuss times we have felt “out of place” in a new environment. After our discussion, we will write a paragraph using one anecdote and one physical description to illustrate our feelings.

Group Work:

Discuss one or more times that you felt “out of place” (like Black Elk does in New York, for example).

Tell your fellow students the anecdote. Let them ask you for more details. Write down the details other students are interesting in knowing more about.

Make sure you note a physical characteristic in your description of what happened.

Writing the Details:

Write down your anecdote. Write a good topic sentence for your paragraph.

We will share our topic sentences at the end of the class.


Complete a 125 word paragraph on feeling “out of place.”

Bring your homework to class on Friday, March 7
