Here is your first essay assignment. The guidelines are fairly simple: papers should be typed and double-spaced. They should have at least 500 words. If you cite any outside sources, be sure to provide MLA documentation, including a Works Cited list, for secondary sources. (Topics #4 and #5 will definitely need this.) When finished, submit your paper to Turnitin.com. The due date is September 28 by 5:00 p.m.
