SHOULD WRITERS USE THEY OWN ENGLISH

PART A. Read and mark Vershawn Ashanti Young’s “Should Writers Use They Own English?” (on Blackboard; download and print)

PART B. Making Connections (1-2 pages, typed, double-spaced, in Times New Roman font)

Recall a time someone made an assumption about you based on the language you used.  How did it make you feel?  How can you relate these feelings to the reading?

Do you think Young’s views about language best aligns with Fish or Anzaldua. Explain..
