Personal Mantra Paper and Presentation
This assignment should also help you identify your own values. As I said in the introduction of this assignment there are enough people out there willing to tear you down so why take the time to do it yourself? Instead, you will come up with some positive values that describe who you really are as a whole and healthy human being. You are required to write a paper, make and show a visual representation and present it to the class.
As for the formatting of the visual representation is up to you, be creative. You could write it on a business card to keep in your wallet or frame it and hang it on your wall or paint it on your bathroom mirror or make it a screen saver.
The format for the presentation is simple, tell us the three values that best describe who you really are at your core. Here is what you need to include:

In addition to bringing the mantra you are also required to type up a paper that follows the prompts below using Toulmin's model, submit the paper on canvas as a PDF or Word file, and to explain to the audience. You must turn in the paper before you speak, you may not read it to the class. Here is the format:
I am a(n) value, value and value (person/human/child/adult)
It needs to be 1-2 pages long!
