    Audience

    Say Cheese!

    You are looking at an English 121 University of Washington student e-portfolio*; photographic evidence of progress and accomplishment in a service-learning based English class.

Taught by Jentery Sayers, English 121 B explores “Service-Learning, Sonic Culture, and Media Activism.” The course includes numerous readings focused on opening the eyes of 121 B students to the concepts and implications of speaking about, with and for. Through blogs, podcasts and class discussion my peers and I explored the writings of numerous authors, including Sarah Kozloff, Ivan Illich and Linda Marting Alcoff.
