Essay answers must be more than 3 or 4 brief sentences, PER PARAGRAPH AND MUST BE 3 OR MORE PARAGRAPHS, PER QUESTION, but kept within the bounds of a short-answer essay. All your writing must be in your own words. Paraphrase (restate what you read) rather than copying material from course readings or the Internet.  No copying is permitted in this course and doing so will result in zero points on the exam. Answers must be written in narrative, paragraph form.  Lists and/or sentence fragments also will not receive points.
