EXAMPLE OF RECOUNT TEXT

When I was in junior high school, I was not a very diligent student. In fact, I was
quite lazy. I hated all the subjects that I took during school, especially science. For me
science was very difficult. It was hard for me to remember the chemical processes, physics
calculations, and bilogical processes.

Once, my teacher grounded me in the library because I did not do my Biology


homework. The teacher asked me to read several books and make a summary about them.
When I was browsing the shelves, I found a book entitled The inventors of Medicine. I
thought OK, this is a start. I took it out then began reading it. I learned from the book about
Edward Jenner. He was an English doctor who found the cure for smallpox. The next one was
Louis Pasteur. His interest in bacteria led him to discover the treatments for rabies and
anthrax. Just like Pasteur, Robert Kochs experiments on bacteria also proved that
tuberculosis can be spread to others by contact. Finally, there was Alexander Flemming, a
British bacteriologist who found the first antibiotic and penicillin.

After I read the book, I realized that science is useful for human kind. By studying it,
we can discover things that can help human kind. Therefore, since that moment, I managed to
change my behaviour and became a doctor.
