“A Life of Significance and Worth” Argument
Indiana Tech’s mission statement (a mission statement is usually one sentence that summarizes an institution’s main purpose) is as follows:
“Indiana Tech provides learners a professional education; prepares them for active participation, career advancement, and leadership in the global 21st century society; and motivates them toward a life of significance and worth.”
Within this essay, you are going to craft an argument about what “a life of significance and worth” is. This is clearly an open and subjective idea, but what do you believe this life looks like?
So, in this argumentative essay, you should:
- Consider the defining aspects of this type of life:
- What makes a life significant? What makes a life have worth?
- Who defines a significant or worthy life?
- Think about the material presence of this type of life: What is present? What is not present? What does living this type of life actually look like?
- How does one achieve a life of significance and worth? Is this possible for anyone? Why?
- A strategy for organization is to think about 3-5 points (body paragraphs) to make that support your main idea about what a life of significance and worth is.
- Develop topic sentences for all body paragraphs that do at least these two things: 1) Provide the main point of that paragraph and 2) Relate back to the thesis (overall judgment of the article) clearly. Your topic sentences may also work to transition between main ideas (body paragraphs).
- Keep in mind that your essay must be coherent and cohesive; tie all the points you choose to make (topic sentences) together with a main claim (thesis).
- Make sure you have STRONG intro. and conclusion paragraphs.
- Consider what you have learned about argument through reading Chs. 1-6 in your text; how can you apply these ideas to your own essay?
- Remember that you are making an argument here: You need to take a clear stance, support it through your body paragraphs, and craft a strong conclusion that works to convince readers of your argument. After reading your essay, your audience should have a clear idea of how you define “a life of significance and worth” and why you define it that way.
- NOTE: No research should be conducted for this first essay.
