Essay #1~ Express and Reflect: A Health Experience
1 .
Background: We have been discussing health and communities, specifically health as a “dynamic state or condition of human organism that is multi-dimensional in nature.” A person’s health is dynamic in part because of the many different factors that determine one’s health: physical, emotional, social, behavioral, intellectual, spiritual, and occupational and results from a person’s interactions with and adaptations to his or her environment.
Health exists in varying degrees and is specific to each individual. Look around you, sometime in your life you have experienced a health issue or someone in your community has experienced a health issue that is dynamic in nature, and that experience has impacted you in some way (i.e., you remember the situation, so there has to be some impact there).
Writing Task: Write a 3-5 page essay about this moment of time in which you look back, reconsider, question, and interpret a health experience from your present perspective. It will be important to describe this health experience with enough detail so that the reader can understand the experience’s significance to you. How has this health experience changed over time? How has this health experience affected your beliefs, attitude or values? What new perspective do you want your readers to come away with after reading your essay? (Use one of the last questions to frame your thesis).
Rhetorical Situation: You are trying to convince students, like yourself, that this health experience has a valid place in the overall discussion of health. Keep in mind that you are writing for a public audience.
