Writing Assignments

Remember that, as always, I am looking for your opinion and how well you support it with evidence; these essays are less about “right answers” than they are about well-supported ideas.

For each essay your conclusion should address the following: How, specifically, does the source material, as you have interpreted it, reflect what the creators are trying to say about their society?

You may, but are not required to, use secondary sources to add perspective to your analysis. Make sure both your primary source and any secondary sources are correctly cited.
