You can;download a copy from Doc Sharing, too;Dear Ms. Q;My essay on the Po Bronson article is;important to me. It?s made me stop to;think about what I?m doing with my life and what I want to give my family.;I understand how important an introduction;to a paper is. This week, I want to make;a great introduction! I will start my;paper by telling a story about my father?s last two weeks of life. I stayed with my mother and helped her more;than I ever thought I could. That tells;my reader about my gift of listening and empathizing, which is something I;offer the world. It?s a good way to start my essay because it gets the reader?s;attention?maybe some of my readers have lost a parent. My plan is to make my introduction better by;writing a couple of sentences at the end of the paragraph to explain how my;story about my father connects to my essay?s whole purpose of talking about how;we have to give the best of ourselves to our family.;To develop my essay, I?m going to go with a;chronological order. I?m going to give;two other examples of times when I listened to people in my family and helped;them with problems. The first example;comes from my teenaged years, then I?ll move to my adult years. Both examples rely on some anecdoting, so;like my introduction, I?m going to tell little stories and explain how they;relate to the topic and prove what I said about my gifts to the world. The stories will include some scene-setting;and a little bit of dialogue so my reader can see and hear what I?m writing;about.;The next half of my essay will pick up with;?what I really need.? Family is the;first thing that I really need, and since all of my examples in the first half;of my essay have to do with family, I can transition to this section;easily. To keep balance between the two;halves of my essay, I?ll have two examples in the ?what I really need? section;too. My plan is to relate both of my;?what I really need? examples back to the two short stories I told about my;gifts. I really need my sister?s love;and support because I rely on her to help me make friends and to be cool, so I;can relate what I need from her to what gifts I have to offer her. Then, I;really need my husband?s practical skills and perspective on the world because;he keeps me grounded, and I?m going to relate that back to my story about;introducing him to classical music and art museums as one of my gifts. I think that relating what I need with what I;can give is a really good way to show my values.;Finally, my conclusion will reflect back to;my dad?s passing and how it came home to me, how important life and family are;and how I learned that we should give everything we?ve got to give because we;don?t know when it could all be taken from us.;I think that?s an important point to tell my reader and remind him or;her to pick up the phone and call someone or stop by and visit them for no;reason. We have to give the best of;ourselves to the people who need us most?I really want to get that point across;to my readers.Progress Check #3 (graded)Download Progress Check #3 instructions from the Doc Sharing area and complete the assignment.Submit your lab to the Dropbox located on the silver tab at the top of this page
