This handout is mostly about determining when you should make use of person that is first (“I”, “we,” “me,” “us,” “my,” and “our”) and private expertise in educational writing. “First individual” and “personal experience” might seem like two methods for saying the same, but very first person and private experience can perhaps work in completely different methods in your writing. You may opt for “I” but maybe maybe maybe not make any mention of the your own personal experiences in a particular paper. Or perhaps you might add a description that is brief of experience that may assist illustrate a place you’re making without ever utilising the term “I.” Both of which this handout addresses so whether or not you should use first person and personal experience are really two separate questions. It provides some options in the event that you decide that either “I” or individual experience isn’t appropriate for your task. In the event that you’ve determined which you do wish to utilize one of those, this handout provides a few ideas on how to do this efficiently, because most of the time using one or even the other might strengthen your writing.
