Writing From Knowledge And Experience (MEAP 2003)
People show they care for others in different ways. One way is to do kind things for people they know, such as family members or friends. Another way is to care for animals. Still other ways are by doing things for their communities or the world around them.
Write About The Theme:
You might, for example, do one of the following:
How People Show They Care For Others
write about a caring thing you, or someone you know, has done for someone else
describe how someone you know sets a good example of caring for others
write about the first time you were given responsibility for taking care of something or someone
write about the theme in your own way.
You may use examples from real life, from what you read or watched, or from your imagination.
Before you write your final answer, write down ideas, organize your thoughts, or write a rough draft. You may use a dictionary, thesaurus, grammar book and/or spelling book.
