“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

Helen Keller grew up to be famous despite becoming deaf and blind when she was only 19 months old. Together, her family, teachers, and others helped her learn to read, write, and speak to groups. She even wrote 12 books. One of her best-known quotes is, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” What can you accomplish by working with your friends, family, teachers, and others that you couldn’t do alone?
Write an essay about you or other people accomplishing more by working together.

Outstanding essays will include specific examples to support ideas and opinions.
