ESSAY QUESTIONS
MESSAGE  TO STUDENTS FROM PROFESSOR
 They are essay questions, and I suggest that you take them seriously.   Pay attention to the instructions.  If you are current on your readings, you should have no problems answering the questions.  Remember that I am looking for a discussion and not just simplistic personal opinions or regurgitation of facts.  Show proof that you have read by making extensive references to your books.  DO NOT use external sources like those you find on the Internet etc: as that would prove fatal.  Answer according to the context of your assigned readings and the questions asked.  Good luck.
Things the Instructor is also looking for that must be answered.
·         Did the student answer the question asked?
·         Did the student show proof that he or she has read the assigned texts?
·         Did the student analyze the facts critically?
·         Overall organization and presentation.
