Body:
When the author was nine years old Mr.
Rozak came to his house and taught him a “lesson
of a lifetime.” That is as old as I am, so it is a
good time to learn a lesson you can remember for
a lifetime.
Mr. Rozak came with a white cane, so the
author knew he was blind because only blind
people are allowed to carry those canes. First
Mr. Rozak opened his tool box and the author
said, “I’d never seen anything arranged in such an
orderly way.” You know it was neat and tidy if he
had NEVER seen anything so orderly. Then Mr.
Rozak opened the piano. There were 200 strings
and tuning pegs. That is a lot to remember, so he
must have had a good memory. The passage said
that the man “returned each tool to its exact
spot” when he finished using it. That would be
the only way he could easily find it again. Mr.
Rozak told the author that he learned “if I
organized my things carefully, I’d be able to work
as well as someone with two perfectly good eyes.”
That was the lesson that the author learned. He
learned to keep his things neat and tidy so he
could easily find them again. This “new vision”
was taught by a blind man!


Body:
On December 5, the Mont-Blanc was near the
harbor in Halifax. It was packed with massive
amounts of explosives, but it wasn’t flying a warning
flag so other ships wouldn’t know it was carrying
dangerous materials. The pilot arrived at the ship
too late to depart, so the Mont-Blanc had to stay
outside the harbor overnight. Perhaps the pilot
could have arrived earlier, or on time, but the text
doesn’t really tell you why he was late.
It just so happened that the Imo didn’t receive
coal to set off on December 5 as scheduled. This
was an unfortunate event. Now the Imo was behind
schedule and began to hurry to make up lost time.
On the next day, the Imo sped toward a small
area of the harbor, The Narrows. The Mont-Blanc
was heading into the Narrows from the opposite
direction. Both of the ships were approaching “The
Narrows” about the same time. The Narrows means
that 2 ships couldn’t fit through at the same time.
The Imo refused to get out of the way because it
was rushing. It was behind schedule and didn’t want
to waste more time.
When they realized they were in danger, both
ships reacted. The Mont-Blanc veered left, the Imo
headed in reverse. However, the reactions didn’t
move the ships out of each other’s way but now put
them on a collision course.

Introduction:
On December 6, 1917, a terrible
explosion occurred in the harbor of
Halifax. The explosion could have been
prevented if just one of the many things
that went wrong hadn’t happened.
Conclusion:
If one of these things could have been
changed, the terrible explosion wouldn’t
have happened.

STEP 5:
Write the Body of the
essay

Body:
You may not have realized that there are
more helpful insects than harmful ones. For
example, bees and wasps pollinate crops. They
do this by flying from one the flower of a
seedling to another of the same kind. When
they pollinate the crops like this, the crops
can grow and mature and are able to produce
crops food for the hungry in the world. In
another example, beetles and ants break down
soil and return the nutrients to the soil. The
broken down soil makes it rich and able to
produce abundant crops. In addition, bees
and also silkworms produce products. Bees,
those pesky little insects with stingers, make
honey. If it weren’t for bees, you wouldn’t
have honey to spread on your toast in the
morning.
Not only do insects produce products such
as honey and pollinate crops, they also get rid
of harmful insects. If they are predators,
they eat the insects. By eating the insects,
beneficial insects get rid of the harmful ones.

Introduction:
You may be sitting at a picnic on a
warm summer day and find yourself
annoyed by the buzzing bees and
uninvited ants. Before you begin to get
rid of these insects, you might want to
think about how they fit into nature.
These insects pollinate, break down soil,
and provide useful products. Some of
them even get rid of harmful insects.
Conclusion:
add a transition.
even add a whole sentence in
small print!
So, next time you find yourself outside
at a picnic, try to think of how important
they are in nature. Try to think of the
99% of insects who are beneficial before
you begin to swat at them.

Body:
When the officer leaves his home in the morning, he
tells his wife that he will send a message that “violence won’t
be tolerated.” When he says that to his wife, he is also
saying that he believes in the message. He tells his wife that
“It’s just not right” that going to school is causing that little
girls so much pressure. He means that it’s just not right for
people to be so hateful.
When the officer arrives at the school, he is not feeling
very optimistic about the day because protestors have signs,
hate in their faces, and are shouting cruel words. Although
not shocked, he is disappointed and saddened. The officer
doesn’t think the next few days will be peaceful. Because of
the signs and faces and words he thinks his mission will be
difficult and no more along peacefully.
Then, when he sees the car pull up to the curb and a
“courageous little girl” enter the school. The kind of work
the officer does makes him understand that courage is a
leadership quality. He becomes optimistic at this point
because a “courageous little girl”, a first grader, is making
people think about their fears and hate. The officer calls
Ruby Bridges a “beacon of promise for a world to come.” A
beacon is a light, so the officer thinks this little girl will be a
light to lead the world to live together in harmony and to be
treated with dignity and justice. When the officer says that
he “hangs his hopes on Ruby” he means that he is now very
optimistic because of the courage Ruby shows. He believes
that Ruby’s actions can be an example to others and show
them how to live in harmony and support justice for all.

Introduction:
On the morning Ruby Bridges, a first grader,
entered an all white school to get a good
education, one of the officers who was assigned
to protect her was not very hopeful. When he
saw hate in his neighbors faces and heard their
cruel words, he thought his job was not very
promising and the day might be dangerous. He
reassured his wife about his safety, but he didn’t
really believe it.
Conclusion:
Although the officer was not very optimistic
about the day when he left his house in the
morning, seeing the courage of Ruby Bridges
changed his mind. Just by watching her head
held high and her courage, he became optimistic
that her example would lead others to treat
people with dignity and justice rather than see
people’s hate. The officer will be proud of his
part in helping Ruby achieve this goal.
