Expository Writing Assignment One In “Selections from Losing Matt Shepard ,” Beth Loffreda suggests that the slogan “Hate is not a Laramie value” was not the best response to Matt Shepard’s murder. At the same time, she implies that journalists’ response, “hate: it’s a common word in Wyoming,” was also problematic. Why? Do you agree with Loffreda’s argument? Can you think of a slogan that would not have the same limitations as those Loffreda analyzes? Write an essay which answers these questions. This will require you to consider the political effects, as well as the visibilities and invisibilities made possible by both slogans. Remember, you may agree, partially agree, or disagree with Loffreda’s discussion. Be sure: 1. Your essay has a central position or idea which you support throughout your text 2. Your essay includes quotations from Loffreda’s writing 3. You analyze not simply summarize Loffreda’s essay Your essay should be at least 5 pages, Times New Roman Font. Rough draft is due January 30
