Describe Algonquin College with a distinct personality
I’ve chosen Algonquin because we all have an ephemeral understanding and don’t need to research anything that may sway our decisions.
1. Pick a personified animal
In your head pick a personified animal that represents what Algonquin either currently is, or what you feel Algonquin should be, or what Algonquin could be: a bubbly tiger, a crotchety dolphin, etc.
Keep this secret.
2. Describe Algonquin through your spirit animal
- Why is the college is great & why should I register?
- Think about word choices: formal vs. slang
- Think about grammar: sentence length, punctuation
- Try to convey a personality without getting in the way of understanding
3. Volunteer to read your description
The whole class can discuss why that’s a good fit for Algonquin and try to guess your spirit animal.
