In this assignment, you will practice additional methods of essay development. Please write five short entries. In your first, use cause and effect. In your second, practice contrast. In your third, define something. In your fourth, practice division-classification. And finally, in your last present an argument. I’ll leave you some prompts below.
This five-parted assignment should be created as a single Word document. When complete, please upload to be graded using the dropbox below.
Part I: Write Cause and Effect: What are the CAUSES of you becoming an online student (the effect)?
Part II: CONTRAST two things, any two things you’d like. You might contrast cats/dogs; online school/traditional school; glasses/contacts; soccer/football
Part III: DEFINE yourself in some way. Are you an adventuer? A mother? A father? A sister? What does it mean to play this role?
Part IV: DIVIDE and CLASSIFY something. Think music, vacations, food, pets, technology…
Part V: Create a short ARGUMENT about something you feel passionate about. Here’s an example from your textbook, though you can feel free to use something else:
“Junk food is available in school cafeterias and school vending machines, and the cafeteria menus do not encourage the best eating habits. But good education should include good examples as well as classwork. Schools should practice what they preach about a healthy diet and stop providing junk food.”
Each part of this assignment is worth up to six points and should be composed in at least one-developed paragraph.
