Comparison/Contrast Paired Texts on

Pages 611 and 615, with prompt 3 in Suggestions for Writing Page 619 (Chapter 29).

This paper is based on the two texts Page 611 and Page 615 and necessarily calls for the compare/contrast pattern of development but use other patterns as well.

This paper must address the principal question (top of Page 620): What does happiness mean to you? You must again share your personal views on this topic, and the question calls for your definition of happiness. Your views will dominate the paper with a demonstration of your ability to explore a difficult topic in depth, but you must also integrate quotations from the two texts (Pages 611 and 615). Not only will you compare and contrast the views of these two authors but also compare and contrast them with your own. Include a discussion of the long quotation by Eric Weiner in the prompt pages 619-620.

The prompt paragraph Pages 619-620 makes it clear that you must write about your interpretation of happiness that includes the factors that, for you, contribute greatly to having what you personally define as “a good life.” Do not summarize or reinterpret the two texts. Write a personal opinion paper and use sources in the textbook and outside to illustrate and support your comments. Use examples from personal experience as well.

As in all essays, avoiding the obvious is crucial. Show your critical thinking skills with comments, questions, explorations of aspects of the topic, and ideas that are not self-evident and that you can support with good reasoning and examples. The focus of your reasoning must be personal variations in a definition of “the good life.”

Review other recommendations made in the prompts for Essays 1 and 2. The paper must be 7 pages minimum.
