Ause and effect essay explaining how the effects of language and communication, both positive and negative, shape our individual identities.

Drawing on the assigned readings from this unit, in addition to your own views and personal experiences, write a cause and effect essay explaining how the effects of language and communication, both positive and negative, shape our individual identities. Consider how derogatory terms for particular groups make it possible for the mistreatment or hatred of others. On the other hand, affirmation from a loved one can create great self-confidence. In other words, think about how the impact of language and communication in the world, within your community, and your own home affects and shapes your sense of self.
Your essay should be typed in MLA format and should be approximately 600-1000 words in length.
