it was successful because it really made think of how I want people to remember me when I'm gone and what I want to be known for, what legacy I want to have
yes it was successful because it made me think how i would be remembered if i died compared to how i want to be remembered when i die
very good Jack, well done!
writing my own obituary was kind of scary!
Yeah, I get that. Our mortality isn't something we like to think about. What we should concentrate on is how others will feel if something should happen to us.
I thought it felt weird to think about your own death but I still found it interesting
It was not successful,trying to think how you might die how old you might be and were is not a good way (in my opinion) im not going to write my own obit when im close to death i would rather have someone else (preferably some one i know and who knows me back) write my obit. Also i have not lived life enough to know what my job might ( or will ) be going trough my life.
Ah, you should have concentrated more on the effect you have on those around you rather than the other. That was the point of the exercise. You have an effect on more people than you realize.
The hole project i thought was strange but in a way it cool to play out my own death
It was successful. It really made me think about what my legacy is at this point in my life.
I found this essay to be very successful. It was nice to write about all of the things that I have accomplished.
I think it was successful in telling me that i'm a total wallflower who hasn't accomplished much.
Oh I bet you'd be surprised at how you touch people around you without even recognizing it. My mother requested a private funeral when she died because she didn't think anyone would be interested in attending. When she passed, we had so many people request an invitation that we ended up making it public. She had over 150 people attend. She didn't realize what an effect she had on those around her. I overheard one person speaking to another saying "You know, Peggy wasn't someone who was always right at the forefront of everything, she was always in the background, but she was always there. You don't know how many people you touch until you're gone." Made me cry.
Mr. Collingsworth your comment is very touching.
The obit exercise was an interesting one and really made me think what my life will come to even though I am still very young
you will go down as the greatest human of all humans to ever live on the earth, all hail kody!
The obit essay was interesting because it made me think of what ill be remembered as when i die. Also what i can do later in life to be remembered, not by what i did but who i was as a person.
The though of writing my own death was interesting because I never fully thought of how I would die and how people would react to my death. It was interesting to see what I came up with.
yes it was successful because it made me think about how people are actually going to remember me when i die but i think that all of this was just weird because i didn't want to think about me dying so peace
None of us do, especially when we're young. But it's good to think about how we touch people around us.
i like it .. kinda excited now to see how my life turns out hopefully i marry chuck norris
i thought writing my obituary was successful because it made me think of what people think of me.it also made me realize what i want to accomplish in my future.
Writing my own obit was kinda hard because i didn't think i would be writing one any time soon, it was hard thinking of something that i wanted to be remembered by but it was also a creative assignment
I liked this assignment. The only reason why I liked this assignment was because I could plan out my life how I wanted and describe how I wanted it. Many people such as my teachers and my mom and some other people. Pretty much all of the people I told I was doing this assignment said that this assignment was disturbing. They believed this assignment was disturbing because your writing / planing your own death. They also believe many kids will refuse to do this assignment.
Yes, this assignment was successful for me because I did an excellent job thinking about my legacy and it made the assignment more easy to achieve.
(Forgot to add if it was successful or not)
Excellent! You got the point of the assignment 100% :-)
I agree with Savonna. The assignment was really interesting.
It was an interesting assignment. Writing my own obituary certainly allowed me to reflect upon how I want to be able to portray myself to others throughout my life directly through my actions so that I can have some sort of everlasting impact on those that continue to live long after I've died.
I agree with the first part of Claudia's comment.
Can't blame you for not wanting to marry Chuck Norris. o_O
Yeah i think this orbit was successful to me, it made me think about me legacy that could happen in the future.
I can't decide if I found it successful or not. Life has some much to offer who knows where it will take you or what legacy you'll leave. I did think about my legacy but not too intently because I know the legacy I'd like to leave and the actual one I will leave are different things.
Nice! That's the sort of thinking I like to see on these.
I thought it was good but weird to think of when I am Going to die and what it will be like after I die.
The way of thinking how im going to die was a bit strange, but focussing on how i live became more important after doing this. Oddly enough
Nice! And that was the point :-)
i did not like this at all, it made me cry at night...
Aw... I hope you had a Teddy Bear to cry into.
I found this assignment to be a little frustrating. I couldn't think of how to write an obituary and reflect on my life when iv hardly lived yet, being so young i have no idea who ill be in five years, let alone the person i"ll be when i die. this assignment did help me see where id like to lead my future and where i want to be, and set goals for myself but no one can plan these things out exactly. Anyone can threw a life changing experience at anytime so it was difficult to write about the person i was when i have no clue who that is yet
Very insightful, but it did make you think!
It was successful because it made me think of what i want people to think of me when i die
This essay was odd... Its weird to think about death at the age of 17
I did like the obituary because once I think about it, my life is really short and I only have one life. It helped me to realize that people will remember me for who I am and people notice my actions and whether I know it or not, I influence others.
write about me and that was the reason why I died it was interesting, I wondered if my death would be like.
i had a very hard time trying to think about my death, it made me very sad and it came to the point where i couldnt even play m videogames last night. but it was ok
Maybe Josh will let you borrow his Teddy Bear.
It was successful because I completed the assignment and got a grade, but it was difficult to explain my death. Had more trouble than I expected.
Writing my own obituary made me look at myself in a different way, but in a positive way . Made me realize that I am a good person and I should credit myself more for it
Writing my obituary made me look at myself in a different and positive way. It was fun to do.
i really liked the fact that i could play out my own death but i didnt really have much because i dont really get out and do much around the community all i really do is come to school work and help students out and then go to goodwill there isnt really anything that i do that people can remember me by. overall i liked the essay alot and hopefully i dont have to write my own obit ( anytime soon)
The Obituary was an interesting exercise to do. It made me think of how I want to be remember when I die.
the cube was interesting because the show me many things about myself
The obituary assignment was a little strange at first thinking of our death but i eventually understood the concept and thought it was worth doing
It was successful it made me think of how I want people to remember and see me as
my obituary help me to see how i really want how people remember me when I die, also helped me to discover my imagination to create a death which was very interesting. For me this was like a start of a famous writer. :)
I think this assignment was very sucsessful. It made me think of how i would be remembered by people if i died today, and what i can do in the future to change how i will remembered.
i thought it was scary but successful. It made me think of how i'd be remembered as if i died young.
I found it to be an interesting assignment. I liked that I had control of what happened in my life and how I was remembered. How I died. You never know when your going to die. Or that people will even remember you. I wont be changing any aspects of my life to create a quote on quote legacy. I live my life for myself and I want my legacy to be based off of the people who stood by my side the whole entire way. It doesnt mean anything to me about what people who didnt even get to know me or thought they did but didnt, think about me. I want my legacy or to be remembered by the people in my life who mean something. And so far thats what I have.
i found the obituary essay hard to do because i have no idea what or who im gonna be when i die and dont really care to think about it
