For this essay, you should write an extended definition of one term. You should choose a term with special significance, but please avoid abstract terms like “love,” “equality,” “friendship,” “happiness” and so on. Specific terms work better than general terms.
The essay’s purpose should be informative. The thesis statement should include the term (T), its class (C), and its qualities (Q). For example:
A kick (T) is a spurt of speed (C)that a runner puts on at the end of a long distance race (Q).
A blind date (T) is a social event (C)that causes anxiety for all concerned (Q).
The slasher (T) is a horror movie (C)that features screaming teenagers, knife-wielding monsters, and blood (Q).
The required length of the assignment is 700-1000 words (3-4 pages). In order to fulfill this requirement and provide a complete definition, you will need at least two sources.
