Let’s create a checkpoint piece. You can use the dramatic train of thought opener you’ve just created as a starting point (we’ve pasted it below) or you can write something completely new. (Your teacher may have a preference.)
Your passage needs to:
- Start with a dramatic event.
- Zoom back a little (e.g. the time it happened and what that means).
- Zoom back a little more (e.g. a person related what you’ve talked about).
- Zoom back even more (e.g. a big problem you see about life or a situation, or even people in general).
