A Modest Proposal Assignment
Pick a modern day problem facing our world/society/country today. Write your own “ modest” proposal. Make sure you have come to understand the questions that guided your reading. Specifically, how did the author begin his work? How did the author give glimpses of his true feelings? How did he convey some “real” suggestions to the audience?
You do not have to maintain the same tone as is found here (but it does make it more fun!). Still, use some variation of satire to convey your message.
This proposal should be 2-3 typed (2 FULL pages minimum for any credit), double-spaced pages. Submit it in a Word document. Attach it as a document; please do not copy and paste it into the area provided.
Make sure that you use MLA formatting when you write this assignment. There is NO need to use outside sources. This assignment should be all from you.
