3:15 Sunday Class homework due 07/08

Please complete the assigned SAT essay-We would like to think that progress causes problems to be solved completely, and sometimes that happens. For example, some diseases that once posed a serious threat are no longer a problem, thanks to modern medicine. Some problems can be solved, and they go away. But as often as not, problems exist in a chain of cause and effect: for each problem solved, a new one develops.
Adapted from Gregg Easterbrook, The Progress Paradox: How Life Gets Better While People Feel Worse
Assignment: Does progress reduce the number of problems in the world, or does solving old problems just lead to new ones? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations. 

Please learn the vocabulary- abstemious, avarice, contentious, extol, fickle, fulminate, impecunious, inimical, intangible, inure, lassitude, nascent, penury, platitude, prosaic, refractory, reprobate, untenable, venerable, vituperative.
