Please select one of the prompts below to write a 300-400 word essay (please indicate your choice). Your essay should be similar to a mini-paper, except that it is not restricted to the readings of a particular session. You can refer to any of the readings assigned throughout the course (with proper attribution), or none at all. Please do not use sources beyond the course materials (especially ‘the internet’). Please also be aware that we use software to analyze every single essay for potential plagiarism. Please do not plagiarize!
The essay is short, and you have a generous amount of time to write it (60 minutes). Please use the time to first think, then draft, and finally write and polish your essay. A successful essay directly addresses the prompt, and is based on your engagement with, and reflection of, the course topics and materials. It also has a clear introduction which briefly but directly states your main argument, and then several supporting paragraphs that expand on your argument.
