Using the techniques that you have learned so far in the course including, more specifically, Unit 2, create a polished essay of 600 to 650 words on one of the choices presented in the following two topics.Topics:Define one of these terms in an extended definition: loyalty, vanity, motivation, ethics. Use your extended definition to say something fresh and relevant about this abstract and commonly used term. For example, in the sample essay \”The Insufficiency of Honesty\” (page 241), Stephen L. Carter uses his definitions of honesty and integrity to say something new about the need for integrity in personal and business interactions. For your chosen topic, you should add to or work against the ready, accepted definition. You might, for example, decide that the usual definition of vanity is too narrow and that you can extend the definition to include actions or attitudes that you feel society should be more concerned about than it is.As you draft and revise your essay, check that your thesis is clear and supported by your main points. Check that you have used the rhetorical methods explored in this unit, as appropriate, and especially that you have used specific, relevant examples. Check your paragraphs for unity, organization, development, and coherence. Review your introduction and conclusion for interest and appropriateness of tone. Then edit, checking your work for the sentence errors reviewed in Activity 8.Checklist:Here is a checklist for revising, editing, and proofreading.
