Essay #5: Literacy in the Workplace

The writing assignment:

For this essay, you have two choices, which are quite similar:

  1. Consider what you will be doing with your education after you graduate, then answer this question: "What is the place of literacy (both reading and writing) in my chosen profession?"
    NOTE: If your aim is something that's basically a literary profession (sports writer, advertising, poet, novelist, etc.) please move on to choice B. (This is because the "place of literacy" in a writer's life just too easy and obvious as a paper.)
  2. If you are undecided about your major or if you are already aiming in a heavily literate direction, please choose one of the fields below and answer the same question: "What is the place of literacy (both reading and writing) in the work of a person in this field?"
