DIRECTIONS: Write an essay of 500-700 words on one of the following topics. Your paper should have an introduction that engages the reader’s interest and presents the thesis statement to be developed in your essay; supporting paragraphs, each with a topic sentence; and a concluding paragraph consisting of a summary and a final thought.
All of us have fears—and those fears can have a real influence on our everyday behavior. Some people, for example, are afraid of numbers; as a result, they postpone taking a required math course in school or they automatically freeze up whenever they have a math quiz. Think about three of your greatest fears. Then write an essay in which you provide examples of those fears and show how they affect your daily life.
