Write a minimum of a 500 word-essay or a minimum five-stanza poem using Definition or Classification and Division. (Note: If the poem is free verse, it must be at least 400 words.) Be sure to follow the developmental methods presented in this lesson. Your work must have a recognizable theme. (Note: Definition and Classification and Division are not appropriate for writing short stories.)
Topic Choices: Choose any topic listed below, if you choose Classification and Division.:
(Use division and classification (into at least three categories) as your basic method fo analyzing one of the following subjects from an interesting point of view.)
hunters (or fisher)
summer ( or part-time)jobs
game show hosts
horses ( or other animals)
motivations for study
methods of studying for exams
tastes in clothes
contemporary music or films
ways to spend money
attitude towards life
fast food ( or junk food)
books or magazines
If you chose Definition to develop your piece, choose a topic listed below:
(Definiton: Develop a composition for a specified purpose and audience, using whatever methods and expository patterns will help convey a clear understanding of your meaning of one of the following terms:)
intellectual ( the person)
equality ( or equal oppurtunities)
stylishness (in clothing or behavior)
I want to do Definition, and on the topic: Family
any better ideas?
p.s. I think in Definition, you just have to extend the definition of the topic you choose. 'extnd definition by illustrating how some owrds go far beyond their dicitonary definition'

I would have chosen lies. About sixty years ago,there was a popular book,Lies People Tell. I think one could have fun defining and classifying those.
Now in the definition area, you are going to expand, as you noted. Feminine would be a fun one to do also, as wisdom would be.

how could i expand on wisdom?
because for family i was thinking, that maybe i could explain what family means to different people.

Each one of these quotes could reveal meaning:
And check a dictionary, there are four different meanings of wisdom.
