This essay should contain an attention getting introduction with a thesis, a body which contains several examples, transitional words and phrases, and a conclusion which restates the thesis.  Be sure to include sufficient examples–at least 3 – 4 paragraphs of examples. (This depends on the writing prompt you choose.)


1. Write an essay establishing that you are an optimistic (or pessimistic) person. (Do not write that you are both because we lean more in one direction than another.) Use examples to support your case.
2. Write an essay discussing how cooperation has helped you achieve some important goals. You may support your thesis with a single well=developed example.
3. Americans have always had a long-standing infatuation with music icons. Choose several pop groups or stars, old and new–such as Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Alicia Keys, Adele, Beyonce Knowles, Drake, and Taylor Swift, to only name a few–and use them to illustrate the characteristics that you think make pop stars so appealing.
