And it is not

Paragraph 3
Attitudes Towards Money—
READ Evergreen Chapter 10, “Comparison and Contrast.”
WRITE a paragraph of 20 to 30 lines, comparing and/or contrasting attitudes towards
money of two very different types of individuals. For example, you can compare and/or
contrast the attitudes of a spendthrift vs. a miser. Or, you can compare and/or contrast
the attitudes of a single person vs. someone committed to a partner. Or, choose other
individuals you can compare and/or contrast as to their attitudes towards money
FREEWRITE OR BRAINSTORM first, to generate ideas. Write these ideas down on
paper. Remember that everything you jot down must only involve attitudes towards
money. Good writing does not stray from its thesis into irrelevant material, no matter
how nicely it might seem to be written.
WHAT THIS PARAGRAPH IS NOT: It is not argument. You don’t take sides. You
don’t give your opinion of who is “right.” Also, it is not pure description. And it is not
pure narrative, though some narrative might illustrate a point. If this is not clear, go back
and re-read Chapter 10 of Evergreen.
LESS THAN 20 lines will not be read and will not be graded.
SKIP A FEW LINES and add your freewriting/brainstorming, so I can evaluate how well
you’ve used the process.WHAT THIS PARAGRAPH IS NOT: It is not argument. You don’t take sides. You
