ENG/121 Week 1

The essay will be used to help you identify your strengths and weaknesses as a writer, and it will allow the instructor the opportunity to identify grammatical, stylistic, and mechanical problems specific to each student.

The diagnostic is merely one way to take a look at any particular patterns that exist in your writing. You will earn full credit for completing this assignment, as long as you follow instructions. Word Range: 400-500 Please select one of the topics below as the subject of a short essay.Topic 1: Favorite LocationThink of a specific location that means something to you, such as the ocean, front porch of a favorite family restaurant, or perhaps a favorite room in your home. Convey that meaning to the reader by describing the location as it impacts three of the five senses – sight, sound, touch, taste, or smell.Topic 2: Healthy vs. Happy?Is taking care of your health—watching what you eat, exercising regularly, etc.—a big waste of time? Isn’t life too short to worry about these things? Shouldn’t we just eat and do what we want? Explain your position.Topic 3: Work PreferenceSome people prefer to work for themselves or own a business. Others prefer to work for an employer. Would you rather be self-employed, work for someone else, or own a business? Use specific reasons and details to explain your choice.Topic 4: Women in CombatAlthough female soldiers have recently been allowed to take jobs in previously all-male battalions, over 250,000 combat jobs still remain closed to them.
