you must write in response .
This essay should be about 5-7 double spaced pages in length. (again, please do not copy the essay prompt at the top of your first page or include a works cited page).
In evaluating your work, I will be using a grading rubric that I will post on Moodle. I’ll especially attend to:
1) your response to the prompt.
2) the scope and sophistication of your engagement with relevant texts and classroom conversations.
3) the clarity, precision, and coherence of your argument, including the mechanics and diction of your writing.
It’s been said that what you really want is what you want people to say about you when you’re dead. Well, here’s your chance. In conversation with your learning so far, write a two-part essay about how you want to be remembered when you are dead by the people who matter most to you. In part one, write your own ideal eulogy, accounting for the things that helped you develop and sustain the (imagined) life you describe. In part two, draw on our classroom conversation and the various texts you have read to this point to defend the life you have described in part one as well-lived.
N.B. : Before beginning your essay, be sure you understand what a eulogy is. Find one or more eulogies of famous persons online and watch or read them. When you have a sense of how eulogies function, then decide who you want to eulogize you, keeping in mind it could be a person you haven’t yet met. Finally, think about the kind of life you want to live. Remember, you are defending your best life, so feel free to place it wherever you’d like and have it last as long as you like.
