S201-205 Homework: Are extreme sports worth the risk?

Artist: Nikolai Fomin
Comment on the following statement: "Extreme sports have become more and more popular. However, some say that they are too risky."

What is your opinion? Does the thrill of the sport outweigh the risk? Write 200-250 words on a piece of paper that you can give me. Use the following plan:

  • write an introduction (state the problem/topic)
  • express your personal opinion and give reasons for it
  • give arguments for other points of view and explain why you don’t agree with them
  • draw a conclusion
Please give me your essay next week (February 27 or March 1) or send it to me electronically. Have fun!
