NO outside research will be accepted. You may use any of the texts, notes, videos or class discussions, but Googling the concepts is a poor replacement for the works provided in the class and your own capacity for analysis. This is not a research course, and book reports or other forms of essays relying exclusively on outside texts will be graded as if they do not fulfill the assignment.


 No need for a works cited page, format citations of notes, videos etc however you like so long as it is both clear and consistent. 


–You must include an outline for credit
