About this project:
I was assigned a multigenre inquiry project for my English Teaching Methods class this semester in which I needed to research a theme that was present in a multicultural novel I read this summer. I chose the theme of "Perseverance" and focused on the following essential question:
- What does it mean to persevere in the face of adversity?
I looked for an answer to this question in a variety of sources from many different genres and composed an answer which can involve the following three things:
- Repitition of an action until you successfully complete it
- Doing what is right even when social pressures try to influence you otherwise
- Choosng the path less traveled
After researching my question, I then came up with representations of perseverance in many genres of my own. All of these genres are included on this website as well as some other resources that I find helpful to exploring the topic.
