Defining the Good Life

The activity in this module is to practice writing your own definition essay in the form of a timed examination.


In a fully developed essay (minimum of ten paragraphs in length), please answer the questions below. You work should include an introduction, a body of supporting evidence, and a conclusion. Please take some time to edit your work for punctuation, usage, and clarity prior to submission.

You can use personal examples in support of your definition, but you are also encouraged to locate and incorporate supporting materials from the Internet or other resources in formulating your response. If you use specific resources in your paper, please cite them parenthetically in the body of the essay and include a bibliography at the conclusion of your piece.(1)

Questions for Analysis:

1) How do you define the “good life”?

2) Which lifestyle categories and specific examples comprise your definition?
