2. Write: LPE Sketch. There are two parts to this sketch.
A. Pt. 1: Write a 300- to 500-word sketch in Ocean Mode. Write in narrative form and focus on specificity, sensory details, emotional details, and scenes that bring your place to life. Use personal evidence from your own experiences then.
B. Pt. 2: Write a 300- to 500-word sketch in Mountain Mode. Reflect on how your place is related to some specific belief you hold about the world now. Use external evidence from research and provide context for the place bioregionally.
