When answering these essay questions please do the following three things:

  1. Answer ALL elements of the question. If the question has two or three parts, be sure to answer every part of the prompt.
  2. Refer to the texts and videos we have used this term–but do so IN YOUR OWN WORDS.
  3. Give examples to illustrate your understanding. It is not enough to simply explain the concept or idea in the prompt, you should give examples to show that you have a solid understanding of the material.
