Ehrlich’s “About Men” and Dillard’s “Living Like Weasels”

Part I: Choose ONE of the essays that we read for this unit:

Ehrlich’s “About Men”
Dillard’s “Living Like Weasels”
Then, briefly identify how your chosen essay connects to one of the themes from Unit 2: 300 or more words

Love
Alienation/Otherness
The American Dream/Nightmare
The Quest for Identity/Coming of Age
Conformity/Rebellion

Part II: In 150-200 words, write your own original, personal Creative Non-Fiction narrative based on the same thesis or theme that you identified in the essay you chose above. Be creative and use this opportunity to connect events in your own life to an aspect of the work you chose above (For example, if you focused on the theme of nonconformity in this week’s reading, in your own narrative you might describe a time when you yourself did not conform.)
