Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Write an essay on survival. Base your essay on the survival methods of Jean Paget and the women as they are marched all over Malaya. Explain what people will do to survive that they would not ordinarily do. Put yourself into a survival situation like an earthquake or famine and tell how you would prepare for the emergency and how you would handle it when it happens.

Essay Topic 2

Write an essay on human kindness. In your essay mention the few Japanese who showed some kindness toward the women and children. Also mention the Malay people and why their sympathy for the group was tempered by fear. Show how even small kindnesses may mean a great deal to the recipient. Conclude with how a kindness may result in something coming back to the giver, like the well Jean Paget had dug for the Malay women.

Essay Topic 3

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.
