Write two contrasting diary entries (300–450 words each): the first by a young teacher after her
first day of work; and the second by a student in her class. In your writing, create a sense of the
writers’ differing attitudes and perspectives.
Setting: The setting is an urban middle school in present day. The school is a bustling center of activity with a diverse student body, a well-stocked library, a busy cafeteria, and a variety of classrooms.
Miss Johnson, a 23-year-old fresh graduate who has just started her teaching career. She is anxious, eager to prove herself, but also deeply passionate about teaching and making a difference.
Sammy, a 13-year-old student, who is slightly cynical, intelligent, and observant. He's experienced enough teachers to be skeptical of the new, young one, but is also open to be proven wrong.
Theme: The central theme revolves around the contrast between the idealism of a new teacher and the skepticism of an experienced student, with the school environment as the backdrop.
Tone: The tone of Miss Johnson's entry should be hopeful and slightly anxious, filled with idealism and the desire to make a difference. Sammy's entry should be more skeptical and humorous, reflecting his perspective as an experienced student.
Pacing: The pacing should reflect the different perspectives - fast and filled with new experiences for Miss Johnson; slower and more observant for Sammy.
Optional: Each diary entry should be between 300-450 words and focus on the characters' experiences of the same day from their contrasting perspectives.
