Writing about Status Symbols
January 14, 1999
Every culture has "status symbols." These are things that are
rare, difficult, or expensive. An example of a status symbol is a
Mercedes Benz. Other people may want to get a Benz to show they are
successful. Some people may not like you if you drive a fancy car.
Write about what you think are
"status symbols." Do you own any yourself? Do you want to obtain them?
What effect do status symbols have on you personally? Write your
thoughts in paragraph form. Teacher Writing
