Storyboard Text

  • The Narrative Species
  • um...what does it mean to "write'
  • Write the story I'm about to tell you.
  • Ugh..let me explain...
  • The Holocaust Example
  • Legen Sie Ihre Hände, wo ich sie sehen kann !! JETZT!!
  • Okay! Okay!
  • Expression Like No Other
  • What does a fox even say?
  • I don't even know...
  • We are the only species that is known to write. Other than just using our bodies and mouths for communication we also write down information. We are narrative. We tell, we listen, we read, we write. And that has greatly affected our survival as a species and as individuals.
  • The Importance of Writing in America
  • Communication is the soul and engine of democracy.
  • Something rather interesting that Rosenblatt presented in his essay is the Jews. Not necessarily them but what they did when they were being taken away to concentration camps. These people wrote on small slips of paper and they slid into small slits of the ghetto walls that they lived in. They wrote knowing they might not return...but they left something a small thought. A small writing to be remembered.
  • Writing is Yours and No One Else's
  • As mentioned before humans are the only species known to write and record. We're narrative in a way. But not only do we just write we have so many ways of expression. Not just writing. When the Jews wrote why did they? Because they wanted to deliver a message. Communication in a way is "preprogrammed" into us. And we have developed so many ways to deliver messages. With things such as various styles of writing, art, sports etc.
  • We Are Writing Blindly
  • In his composition Rosenblatt expresses his belief in how great and big the importance of writing is in America. He says that "Communication is the soul and engine of democracy." DEMOCRACY. The United States was founded on the belief of separation of powers and the belief that people had rights. One of those being, freedom of speech. Writing is communication. Communication is necessary in a government so it does not abuse it's power. Writing gives the common people power. How? We have a voice and we can make it be heard, writing
  • Writing is yours. Yours and yours only. When you write you make the writing yours. The reader can take it or leave it, accept or reject your beliefs. No one can take that from you but yourself. Writing is like your home, it's private. But you can make it public you can let other people into your house. Same thing with writing it can be private but you can share. A person may or may not like your house, your writing. But it's yours and only you have the power to change our writing because it's yours.
  • The most interesting and puzzling thing about Rosenblatt is the title. "I Am Writing Blindly" We write blindly. How? I'll answer that with a question. Why do we write? What do we seek? Rosenblatt states, “[we] write to find God in every sentence. But God (the ironist) always lives in the next sentence.” Are we seeking something we'll never find? Peace? Love? Fame? We'll never know because we are blind to it, and what we seek is always in the next sentence. And there is always a next sentence.
