Due January 30

Print out & read the essay, “Eat, Memory: Orange Crush” by Yiyun Li. (This is available under the “Readings” tab when you mouse over “Preparing for College English 2”).

In your homework books, write an answer to this prompt: Describe briefly (in 2-4 sentences) Ms. Li’s feelings about Tang, and how these feelings changed over the course of the essay. How does she feel about Tang at first? How does she feel about Tang at the end of the essay?

Then describe, in another 2-4 sentences, something that has caused you to feel this way. What things have you wanted as passionately as Ms. Li wanted Tang? What made you want these things?

There’s no “right answer” here; just describe your experience. Doing so will set you up to talk intelligently about the essay in class on Monday.

DO NOT FORGET TO PRINT OUT A COPY OF THE ESSAY & BRING IT WITH YOU!
