The Definition of Terrorism

 i included screenshots of the first essay.Choose to read and write on one of the following essays in your textbook. “GOP Fear of Common Core Education Standards Unfounded,” page 241. “Stop Calling Quake Victims Looters,” page 243. “The Definition of Terrorism,” page 252. “Conscientious Objection in Medicine: A Moral Dilemma,” page 256. Then write a Response Essay. A response focuses on your thoughts, feelings, impressions, insights, and questions regarding a work. A response can vary in its coverage. You may want to reflect on the whole work, or you may want to choose a few points, or even one line, and write on that. You may want to respond to the essay or its thesis. While there is a lot of flexibility in this kind of writing, there are a few pitfalls that you need to be aware of. First, do not stray too far from the work. You should relate reflections, opinions, and comparable experiences to the ideas in the text, but make the work be your central focus. Secondly, do not write a summary. A summary recaps the key ideas, and basically restates the essay in a condensed form. A summary does not reveal what you think about what you read.

Thirdly, do not write an analysis; do not focus on character, plot, setting, point of view, theme, tone, irony, style, and symbols except when they parallel your response. For example, if you have a hard time connecting with an essay because the character is despicable, the tone is depressing, or the theme is disagreeable, then you can link analysis to response. But remember that response is the primary mode, and analysis is a supporting mode. This response needs to written in essay form with an introduction, body, and conclusion–each in separate paragraphs with the body of the essay consisting of multiple paragraphs. Is a response, not a summary or analysis. Is focused (responds to the work or thesis). Is at least 500 words and shows that the student has put some thought into the reading. Is written logically and grammatically. Student uses the APA format and includes a Reference page, listing the one source.
