Draw a timeline of your life and make the

What were some points in your life

an important lesson?

Here is a sample answer:


1988 I was born!

  • 1989 I took my first step.
  • I learned to read and write.
  • I started school.
  • I hurt my foot when I was playing football.
  • I couldn’t walk for two weeks.
  • My grandfather was ill and almost died. I
  • learned how important it was to have friends
  • and family and that we had to take care of
  • each other.
  • I helped my mother in her store during the
  • summer. I learned many things about keeping
  • a store and dealing with people.
  • I went to senior middle school in a different
  • city. It was my first time away from home and
  • I learned to take care of myself and get along with others.


Now according your timeline,write an essay about

an important event in your life. Before you write,

think about the event you want to describe and try to remember all the details. Make a list of your feeling

and thoughts about the event.

When you are writing your essay,try to describe

the event and explain how it made you feel and

what it made you think. Finally, explain

why this event is important in your life.

You must finish the essay after class.
