A Timeline Of Events

Topics for Your Written Chapter

Work Time

Go through your work from previous units and earlier in this unit. Identify parts that resonate with you for whatever reason: they seem particularly honest, artistic, important, revealing, or interesting.

Then, look at the work you have identified. What trends seem to emerge?

  • Write one or two paragraphs explaining what you can learn about yourself from the writing you’ve perused.
  • Take some time to decide what you want your written chapter to be about. Is there a particular event, person, or relationship that you think reveals something about you? A choice you have made? A period in your life where you came to a new understanding about something or someone important? When you’ve decided, write a few sentences explaining what you want to write about and why.
