Sometimes it is a good idea to do things the way other people do them, such as during a fire drill to be safe or when we want to work together as a team. At other times, we do things differently from other people because we do not want to do something that will get us in trouble or because doing something in our own way feels like the right thing to do.
Write About The Theme:
You might, for example, do one of the following:
Doing Things Differently From Others
write about a time when someone acted different from others and it worked out well
tell what might happen if someone did something differently from others
describe a time when it might be best to do something the same way others do
tell what could be learned from doing things the same as or differently from others
write about the theme in your own way.
You may use examples from real life, from what you read or watched, or from your imagination.
Before you write your final answer, write down ideas, organize your thoughts, or write a rough draft. You may use a dictionary, thesaurus, grammar book and/or spelling book.
