High School Writing Class Homework, Week 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — kbagdanov @ 8:05 pm

And the new school year has begun….

We are going to be spending the first few weeks of our high school writing class focusing on the SAT Essay.  Many of you will be going in to take your SAT’s in the next months and it is important that you are prepared.   As a launching off place I want each of you to read this article,

This article, from the Washington Post, will touch on points we will be discussing in the next few weeks.  You will also be writing several 25 minute essays, in class, and at home.  This week I want you to read the article and write one essay.  Choose a topic to write on from the list below and set a time…only give yourself 25 minutes to finish.

Should people always be loyal?
Do circumstances determine whether or not we should tell the truth?
Can deception—pretending that something is true when it is not—sometimes have good results?
Is it sometimes necessary to be impolite?
Is acting an essential part of everyday life?



  1. For The essay we are going to write this week, are we turning it in to you on Friday?
