Select one of the following topics to compose a well thought out essay. Your essay must be between 750 and 800 words (at least 80% original writing), follow all directions, address all aspects of the prompt, and be in MLA format. Please take the time to re-check the details in the readings to ensure your inclusions of them are accurate. Outside sources are not required; however, should you consult them, please be sure to cite in MLA format (both in-text citations and works cited). Please consult the syllabus writing guidelines and the essay and writing powerpoints to ensure you fulfill requirements for formality and form. Un-cited outside material, off topic submissions, unapproved topic changes, and submissions shorter than 600 words will result in a grade of 0. Message me if you have other questions. Please consult the grading key in “files” for feedback.
