Starter: Read this handout on when to quote vs. italicize titles. Then, in your google doc of starters, answer these questions:
2. Review the Essay Question:
"I don't know why we are here, but I'm pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves."
- Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951)
Does happiness really just mean living a pleasant life where your primary goal is to enjoy yourself? Is the pleasant life really the ultimate goal and the true sign of a purposeful, well-lived life? What about good health, wisdom, meaning in life, spirituality, creativity, authenticity, individuality, giving back to community, ambition, success, leaving a legacy beyond your time in a place or in a lifetime, etc.?
Select one factor (not necessarily from the list above) that you see as a marker of a well-lived life. Use evidence from at least one piece of fiction that we’ve read and one piece of nonfiction to back up your claims. See the list of fiction and nonfiction sources we’ve covered in this project. If you would like to also pull from a resource beyond the sources we’ve studied as a class, please ask Ashley for approval.
3. Work time: Write your essay draft. Must be ready for critique tomorrow!
