Use the 7 steps like a checklist when you revise the first draft. For now, forget about them.

I have a strong opinion about this, but I'm not telling what it is. To me, though, one response clearly seems superior.

1.) write a paragraph about what would happen if you rewarded talent.
2.) Write a para about what would happen if you rewarded achievements.
3.) write a para about which outcome is preferable.
4.) write a paragrap about an argument someone would make if he disagreed wtih you, and tell why it is not a good argument (this is called refuting the counterargument.

5.) write your conclusion, and be brilliant about it.

I look forward to seeing your answer and arguing with you about it! :-)
