Holy cow, I wrote a book!
Another episode in the
sporadic series on the wisdom of seventh graders:
The topic this time is
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
The students really enjoyed this topic because,
as one young man put it,
"I could write a book about myself!"
Here are what some students had to say.
Spelling mistakes are intact, but ellipses are editorial.
(I have provided tooltips to assist non-native English speakers.
Actually, even native English speakers may have trouble with
some of the spelling errors...)
(And I thought I didn't have to say this, but apparently I do:
These are just the funny-bad sentences.
There were of course plenty of well-written essays,
but they're not as funny.)
the previous series of essays on
humanity's greatest invention or discovery,
one of the responses was "marrying a princess".
I had to ask my friend for an explanation of that one.
"Well, one student decided to ignore the assigned topic and instead
wrote a fairy tale about a beautiful princess who gets married."
