This is an essay exam. Students are expected to
write in clear and concise sentences. Answers should reflect engagement both
with the readings and course material. Make sure to fully answer each question
and to proofread your answers before you turn them in, and to look for any
spelling or grammatical mistakes.

You do not need to use any sources other than your
textbook and the course material to complete this assignment. If you use sources other than your
textbook or the course material (for example, websites or articles), you need
to include a complete list of sources at the end of your paper.
quoting from the course textbook make sure to specify the page number where the
quotation can be found. A simple reference at the end of the quotation will
suffice, such as: (p. 42) or (42). All
quotations from course or secondary material should be clearly indicated with
quotation marks and properly cited
. You should try as much as possible
to use your own words and not rely too heavily on quotations from the textbook
or the lecture material. A few short quotations per answer are acceptable. But
the focus should be on explaining the concepts in your own words. Each of your
answers should be roughly half-a-page to a page in length (single-spaced), or
400-700 words each (1200-2100 words total), but feel free to write more if
necessary. If you have any questions about the exam feel free to email me.
