Please note: the worst thing you can do is try to look up the answers to these questions online or read a bunch of summaries on random websites. Most websites with sample essays contain bad interpretations or erroneous information. Use your own interpretations of the readings and our class discussions to formulate answers to the prompt. There are many flawed and inaccurate interpretations online, and many students lose sight their own brilliant ideas and arguments in favor of what they think is the better argument from some online source when they go searching for answers on the internet. Trust your own ability to use textual evidence and form an original argument.
