Assignment #1 – Life Expectancy – Find the average life expectancy of the United States and 5 other countries. Choose one of those 5 to research further and find out why there is either a high or low life expectancy in that country. Contributing factors may include number of doctors, access to medicine, availability of food and clean drinking water, presence of war, political system, freedom (of speech, press, assembly, religion), private property… List your 5 countries, then write a paragraph about the one on which you chose to focus. (Remember to use your writing conventions – topic sentence, concrete detail, and commentary – and write at least 10 sentences. Continue on back if necessary.)
