Write a paragraph about yourself so that people who read it will get to know you better. You could write about yourself from any point of view, or choose one of the following topics.
- What I enjoy doing most
- What makes me angry
- What I hate to do
- What I want to become
(Remember to give reason or details of what you write about, so that anyone reading it will understand you better.) After you have finished your paragraph affix your photo on the sheet and display it on the wall. Read each other’s paragraphs. Did you understand someone else better after you had read what he/she wrote ?
Answer: I enjoy talking to people. I think in words rather than pictures. I want to help my class-mates in understanding books—particularly the books of literature. I love to tell stories and I love to know persons. I want to be aware of their point of view. In short, I love people and want to be loved. However, I become angry with some people. They talk of dress and hair-style in-stead of books and knowledge.
I hate to quarrel. I want people to be decent and good-mannered. I want to become an administrator so that I am able to direct people to work properly. If I do become one, I will try to do away with corruption in the country as far as possible.

Why does Radha’s mother tell her that it is not suitable for girls to climb trees ? Find points to agree with Radha or her mother. Plan what you will say by making notes like this:
- Girls should be able to climb trees if they wish
- Girls should not be allowed to climb trees
Now divide the class into two groups. Present to the rest of the class the opinion of Radha who thinks there is no harm in girls climbing trees and of her mother who thinks girls should not do this.
Girls should be allowed to climb the trees if they wish because
1. it is a good game.
2. it is a good exercise for the body.
3. it helps them eat fruit if it is a fruit tree.
Girls should not be allowed to climb trees because
1. it might hurt them if they fall.
2. it is not sensible, say the elders.
3. their work will suffer.
Sit in a circle so that you can see each other. Each one must talk to complete the following sentence in his own way. “What makes me very angry is …”. Remember to listen with respect and without comment to each person as he/she speaks.
Answer: Do it yourself.
