Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Write an essay about interesting animals. Use wallabies and jackaroos as examples of animals that are uncommon to everyone except people in Australia. Include unusual animals you would like to see in their natural habitat rather than in a zoo. Conclude your essay with a scientific reason for preservation of wildlife as it relates to worldwide ecosystems.

Essay Topic 2

Write an essay on modern day chivalry. Use Joe Harman to show his chivalry in Malaya in trying to make life easier for the women and children. Then show his chivalry in being protective of Jean's reputation in Willstown. Finish your essay with an evaluation of chivalry today where practices such as opening doors for women have almost gone out of use. Explain whether you think the world should return to some of that chivalry.

Essay Topic 3

Write an essay about responding to emergency situations. Using the rescue of Don Curtis as an example, include how people often come together to solve problems during an emergency situation. Some examples might include ones like a man who lifts a car to rescue his child when under normal circumstances he could not do it. Either personalize your essay with an example when you responded to an emergency situation or that of a person you know who acted on impulse in such a situation. Apply your theme to being prepared to respond like taking CPR classes or water safety classes.
