developing a piece of personal writing about the importance of choosing wisely in life


Student Writer Instructions:

After being inspired by two songs, a book by Dr. Seuss, and a poem by Langston Hughes, you will be writing a reflective piece on how choices can affect one's future life.

You may choose any of the following formats to share your ideas. Choose wisely. Your final piece of writing needs to be self-reflective and use strong adjectives and verbs.

Choices for this lesson:
  • a free-verse poem that expresses your findings
  • an insightful letter to another who might value your guidance (example: a younger sibling; a friend)
  • a tour guide's script (an explanation of your ideas about living presented in the voice of a person giving a "tour" of life)
  • a recipe that creatively shows how someone can "cook up" perfect life
