Description You should be writing in your own words. The goal of these assignments is to encourage critical thought and analysis. Each answer will be a minimum of two pages and answers that do not fulfill the basic requirements will not be graded (meaning that you earn a 0). Answers should be double spaced with one inch margins. Do not rewrite the question and only put your name on the top of the first page. Include a bibliography and be sure to include intext citation whenever you borrow an idea from a source. Writing Assignment #2 is due by March 3rd. The drop box and Turn It In are located in Week #6.
