The Prisoner that Almost Got Away
Avery, a short, twenty four year old with sun-kissed skin was sitting in the famous Sing-Sing Prison- a large facility surrounded by the ocean. Sing-Sing is located on an isle close to the state of New York. Why is he there you ask, the answer is simple. He is a convicted murderer. Avery, although good-looking and seemingly helpful was a treacherous young man. He committed unspeakable crimes and was paying his unending debt to society. Avery never liked being told what to do, where to go, and how to do things, so after spending two days in a maximum security prison, he decided to escape and never look back.

One day, when a guard accidentally left his key to a hatchet in the wall, Avery got his first break and he rushed to take the key. From that day, he would use the stolen key to open the hatchet and search for a way out. About two weeks later, he found one.

It was a warm, quiet Sunday afternoon, around 12PM, when Avery made his daring move. He unlocked the hatchet, squeezed and shimmied his way up to the roof. After he got on the roof, he hastily searched around for something he could use as a floatation device. He saw a dilapidated piece of wood and decided it would have to do. Avery grabbed the wood and jumped from the roof into the ocean below. He made a large splash, but when the guards looked over to where he was, they saw nothing. Avery held his breath long enough to remain unseen. As the hours passed by, Avery swam, floated, and treading water until he reached land. By the time he was on land, it was 5PM. He ran to the nearest public bathroom and stripped himself of his raggedy orange jumpsuit.

Using the knowledge you have of the Holocaust, imagine you were one of the people being persecuted. How would you respond to being placed in ghettos, being given a symbol that had to be worn everywhere to be identified, to have no job, no valuables, not being able to go where you wanted when you wanted, and you knew the people in power hated you? How would you feel? What would you do to survive?

Just write until you are told to stop.

Types of prewriting:
brainstorming, free writing, mapping, outlining, or surfing the net
Free Writing
Surf the Net
Topic: Dogs
great animals

Write what comes to your mind
this strategy resembles a paragraph
you write continuously without stopping
do not worry about spelling or grammar
then go back through it and pick out the most important ideas
The main idea should be in the center and either circled or underlined
related ideas should stem from main idea
When there is a topic you know very little about
surf the net
use a search engine such as google to get knowledge on the topic
Get in pairs
Look at and dissect two of these thought-provoking images
share ideas
use a different prewriting strategy for each
Get ready to use a prewriting strategy and to begin drafting a narrative!
