Project #1: Multi-Modal Literacy Narrative Part 2: Cultural Domain Analysis

Instructions (Part 1 Domain Analysis Chart): When introducing the Multi-Modal Literacy Narrative project, we established that your mind is influenced by different cultural/social systems that work both separately and together to shape your ideas, beliefs, and practices as a reader and writer. To analyze these systems, your first task is to complete the domain analysis chart in which you must reflect on each of the four domains listed below and identify as many practices, ideas/values/beliefs, objects, or significant details from each cultural/social system that you think has influenced your literacy and composition skills.

Instructions (Part 2 Domain Analysis Narrative): Now that you have completed the chart and generated some ideas about the cultural/social systems you engage with, it is time to flesh out those ideas, and analyze/explain how you think each domain has influenced your literacy and composition. For each of the systems listed below, write between 75 and 100 words to explain the major details of each cultural/social system and how the qualities of each system have influenced your literacy and composition (this means you will compose four short analyses total). You may complete your essays below. Simply type your essay next to each of the headers.

1. Home: My home domain was a positive benefit to my life. Many of the values that come from home, I would consider them to be motivators. It helped to instill discipline in my writing, and make me just free write sometimes, in order to pick out the parts. My oldest brother was very articulate and was able to assist me in writing for poems and papers, with just a few tips.

2. Work: Reflecting on the work environment gave me a rebellious attitude towards some of my hated assignments, however it did give me a feeling of freedom. There were times at work where I just absolutely hated being there, and just wanted to do something else. It pushes me to move forward in my current assignments. Many of my co-workers though felt that school wasnt for them, and that they would rather do their own thing. 3. School: School was a mix of a rebellious and warm community. It varied mainly between the students and teachers, with students not wanting to do well in middle school, and eager young students wanting to do well in high school. The teachers were always trying to get us to perform better in our work, and the student influence made me more apathetic, since I was trying to jump into the social aspect of school. 4. Neighborhood / Community / Peers: My church played a big part in my understanding of myself and my strengths. Since I volunteered there, I was always recognized by older people that wanted to know more about myself, and always wanted to discuss details of stuff.
