Read all the essays before you choose one of the following topics. 1. Supposing you agree with Dan Zollmann, author of the essay “Illiterate like Me” (pp. 166-167), explain three ways the language barrier (illiteracy in a second language) could cause alienation and isolation of a number of people from their social environment. You should use examples from your own experience as an immigrant or an international student in Canada, and/or examples that you know directly or indirectly. You should also quote at least once from “No Nation So Favoured” by Hugh MacLennan (pp.5-6). OR

2. In “A Fable for Tomorrow” (pp. 123-124), Rachel Carson raises the serious issues of pollution and environmental protection. Select specific examples from Carson’s essay and essays by Sang Il Lee (“Our Earthly Fate”, pp.233-234), or David Suzuki (“Overpopulation Is Bad but Overconsumption Is Worse”, pp. 88-90), to present reasons why “The people had done it themselves” and discuss how in THREE ways human beings are suffering from consequences of their own irresponsible actions.
