The Next Thing
on My List

Drafting and Revising a
Personalized List

Student Writer Instructions:

If today was your last day, what would you do with the moments you’ve been given?

That’s a tough question, isn’t it? The focus of this lesson is to get you thinking about the most important things in life and what really matters to you.

Use the interactive buttons to help you discover ideas about what you might do with your time. Then create a list…carry it around in your wallet, put it in your cell phone, tape it to your bathroom mirror. Reflect on that list and make sure you are living the life you want to live.

Revise your list, focusing on how well the words you used convey your passions and desires. Be prepared to share your list with your teacher.
