Ben Is My Teacher

    “Why do you have to take notes on everything, and write everything down?”
     “I like to write.  Then I can remember it, mull it over, and re-think it if I want to.”
     “That is so weird.”
     Sue shrugged.  “I write.  It’s what I like to do.  I write down words as they come to me.”
     “No, no, not you that’s weird,” said Jordan.  “It’s weird that I was just reading in my history book about Benjamin Franklin, and that’s what he did.”
In this short story, Sue and Jordan test their writing skills against Benjamin Franklin's method of improving his own writing in order to achieve what he termed, "elegant writing."
