Think about what you do on a typical
day. Wake up? Get dressed? Eat? Go to school? Play?
Do homework and chores? Talk on the phone? Watch television?
What kinds of tools do you use to
help you on a typical day?
In this freewriting exercise, write
about some of those things that you do during the day.
How do you think your day is different from that of
a person of your age who lived in the Middle Ages?
