In two pages, just like the Lee essay, I want you to describe some art, sport or task that you practice. Think about what defines your approach to the practice. Select a counterexample or two that highlight how your approach is different from some other common ones and use those examples to show us how and why your own approach to the practice differs and what is productive about this difference.
Aim for clarity, focus and good paragraph structure in this assignment. Two pages do not leave a lot of room for ornament. Work to understand what purpose Lee tries to achieve with each of his paragraphs and how it serves his overall thesis, then work to apply the spirit of these same organizing principles in your own essay.
As Lee says, “Remember, you are expressing the technique and not doing the technique.” Your essay should not be a copy of Lee’s essay, but rather a personal expression of the purpose of Lee’s essay for your own art.
