1. Free Time

  1. 1. Identity Book Chapter One Free Time “Lost time is never found again.” Benjamin Franklin
  2. 2. Your time is precious. You have to come to school from 7:30-2:35. Once that bell rings, the time is yours. How do you fill your time? Show your reader why these activities are important to you and how they make you feel. Or another way to think about this… What would you do with your free time if you knew you had just a little bit left? On what would you place value?
  3. 3. Writing Focus • This is more than just writing about the activities you enjoy. It is about showing WHY you enjoy those activities, how they make you feel, and why you value them. • Focus on a main idea and provide details to back up that idea. • Remember to describe in a way to make your writing interesting and exciting. • SHOW, don’t just tell. Paint a picture in your reader’s mind. Where can you add details? What examples should you include? Where can you use the five senses to describe even more? How can you make your feelings, emotions, and thoughts seem real?
  4. 4. Steps 1. Brainstorm your main idea; scrunch down the point of your paper into one sentence. 2. Complete an Idea-Details T-Chart to help you prepare to write your chapter. 3. Star the details you have brainstormed that are worth showing. 4. Feel free to consult a peer on what he/she anticipates as a reader.
