They need these things because they will join us as part of an increasingly challenging and difficult worldone plagued by destructive wars and great ill will , marked by poverty and disease, scarred by racism and ecological degradation. In this world, we face some wickedly complex communicative tasks. To make our collective way with any hope for success, to create a different set of global and local relations than currently exists, we will needall available means[emphasis hers] of persuasion, all available dimensions, all available approaches, not simply those limited to the two dimensional space of a printed page (Selfe 645). 25.

  • I am from clothespins,
  • from Clorox and carbon tetrachloride.
  • I am from the dirt under the back porch.
  • (Black, glistening, it tasted like beets.)
  • I am from the forsythia bush the Dutch elm
  • whose long-gone limbs I remember
  • as if they were my own.
  • I'm from fudge and eyeglasses, from Imogene and Alafair.
  • I'm from the know-it-allsand the pass-it-ons,
  • from Perk up! and Pipe down!
  • I'm from He restoreth my soul with a cottonball lamband ten verses I can say myself.

29. http://www.georgeellalyon.com/where.html

  • I'm from Artemus and Billie's Branch,
  • fried corn and strong coffee.
  • From the finger my grandfather lost to the auger,
  • the eye my father shut to keep his sight.
  • Under my bed was a dress box
  • spilling old pictures,
  • a sift of lost faces
  • to drift beneath my dreams.
  • I am from those moments--
  • snapped before I budded --
  • leaf-fall from the family tree.


  • Write a one-sentence description of your Writing Project site, starting with the phrase, I am from.We will record these into sample podcasts, combine them with music and sound effects, and play them at the end of the session.
  • Ex. I am from the Nebraska Writing Project, whereourCornhusker goodness reaches across the whole state and our podcasts, Nings and forums connect teachers and students from the Panhandle all the way to the Missouri River.


  • Whilepeople are recording their I am from statements, please use the time at your tables to brainstorm possible podcasting projects and applications for your classroom.Record these on chart paper so that your group can share them with the other groups.
