Write an essay of approximately 2500 words (roughly between 2300 and 2700). Write on any topic we have covered all semester. Show me that you have digested these issues and have cultivated a view of your own. Engage as much as you can with the assigned readings and lectures, as well as classroom discussion. DO NOT draw upon any further sources. This is not a research paper. This is a paper wherein you engage in critical thought and show me how you have come to take ownership of these ideas and express them in your own words.
