General Instructions for Essays:
The instructions for writing exam essays apply to this essay, too. That is, I want you to write a coherent essay, which, for this paper, states at least two central claims or theses (one for 3a and one for 3b) and provides specific pieces of evidence. The essay should be organized into paragraphs; each paragraph should have a topic sentence which clearly refers to one of the theses as well as to the contents of the paragraph. Of course, the essay must be written in complete sentences. Long quotations (amounting to more than 10% of the essay) are not permitted, and any plagiarism will result in a grade of "F" for the paper. Plagiarism includes practices such as quoting work without both putting it into quotation marks and citing the source.
