ESL 095 - What's the Best Age?

In your notebooks, respond to one or more of these prompts.

  • Thinking about the story, at what age did Benjamin seem to be happiest? Why was he happy then?
  • Thinking about yourself, if you could be any age you wanted to be for the rest of your life, what age would you choose to be?
  • What do you understand this common saying in English to mean? Do you think it is true? Why or why not? How does it relate to age?

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

After you do that, write a paper of approximately 300 words in which you answer this question:

What age do you think is the best age? Why?

Use ideas from the story to discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages of different ages. Upload your paper to your blog when you are done.
