- Write and submit a thoughtful, thorough, substantial essay, of at least 1500 words, in direct response to the assigned essay question below. The essay should have a focused and clear thesis statement, including your claim and several specific supporting points.
- Draw directly upon our two Explorations for this module in carefully crafting your detailed response to the essay question.
- In responding to the question, carefully review, reflect upon, and attempt to integrate material drawn from BOTH of this module’s Explorations (5 & 6).
- Please, double-space your essay, and include your name at the top of its first page.
- Be sure to duly CITE any additional outside sources you might also choose to draw upon in writing your essay (whether directly quoting from them, or merely paraphrasing from them).
- CCCOnline automatically scans all student papers with plagiarism detection software. Avoid plagiarism by ensuring that any/all verbatim passages drawn from sources are always presented as direct quotes (within quotation marks), and also that both direct quotes, as well as paraphrased material, are followed by in-text citations identifying their sources.
- Don’t forget to include a bibliography or “works cited” page at the end!
- Carefully proofread your essay prior to submission, in order to correct any typos, spelling errors, or grammatical glitches.
