Answer each question you’ve chosen in its entirety in your own words on the basis of the texts we have covered and our class discussions. If you quote from the text, you will also need to explain what is being said, how you interpret it, etc. The goal should be to show your understanding of the ideas at play in your own words. Write as though you are explaining things to someone unfamiliar with the material. There is no specific length requirement per question, rather your responses will be assessed on the basis of how well and thoroughly you have addressed the questions. You may type into a copy of this document under each question if you please.
