You MUST follow the required social science essay writing directions for this course when writing your essay. Essays that are focused on addressing the question and contain analysis that is supported by specific examples will earn the most points. Essay responses that contain a strong BECAUSE thesis and are supported by at least 3 subtopics that are carried through the body and lead to a rational conclusion will earn the highest scores. Essays that do not follow the social science methodology, are vague, or awkwardly address the question, will not receive significant points. Please make sure to FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS. I will attach the instructions and requirements and sample essays in the files.
Detailed instructions are within the document that says “revisions to make”. For this assignment you will only be adding to, reorganizing, or condensing what HAS ALREADY BE DONE. In other words, the paper is already completed, you will just refine it based on the comments given to you in red. An example, document will be posted also “title” example, just in case you need a reference to what is being said in the “revision document”. The example document has nothing to do with your topic, it is only an example of the wording and structuring of what you will do.
Please answer ALL questions. Two paragraphs each question max.
