Instructions: Complete all 3 essays. The essays must be turned in on Blackboard in one document. I will not accept them any other way. The grading rubric is below the essay questions. The essays are due December 18, 2:30. You may turn them in sooner but no late essays will be accepted.
The two of the individual essays have multiple questions. This is because I want this information written about within the essay. Do not separate the questions within the essays and number them. These essays need to be answered as a college level essay.
