Part 2: Essay (50% of Grade)
You will be given twenty minutes to write an essay based on one of the Questions for Review. You will be shown the slides and given the question. Your essay will be based on the quality and not the quantity of your discussion. I am expecting you to focus on the major issues involved in the comparison. Make sure to focus on all parts of the question. Avoid approaching your essay as a listing of information. I am looking for an argument where your points are supported by specific evidence drawn from an examination of the works.
