Death, Dying and Bereavement
For this final Writing Assignment, you are asked to choose two (2) topics from the list below, and write an 8 paragraph essay on the most compelling issues about each topic you learned from the reading assignments and videos. Your essay should have a clear thesis statement in the beginning paragraph; each paragraph after the opening should support the thesis you set forth.
Think analytically about this, comparing and contrasting the two issues you have selected, citing sources from the textbooks and videos. You can demonstrate how they are similar, or different, if they address similar issues for individuals, the complexities involved with each, etc. Remember you should refer to Stiff by Mary Roach and Understanding Dying, Death and Bereavement by Deming and Dickinson.
Do some comparative analysis about the issues we have learned about in this course.
The topics include:
3. Assisted Suicide
4. Hospice and palliative care
5. Living Wills (like the Five Wishes document)
6. Organ donation
7. Living/Dealing with Grief
