Just answer the question(s). Your essay should be 3 pages long, with proper transitions. You only have 3 pages to complete the assignment, so do not waste space on a general discussion. I will not grade anything that continues onto a fourth page.
You must have a thesis statement! If you do not have a thesis statement, you will lose a letter grade for the assignment.
Proofread your work! Although a couple of mechanical errors will not negatively impact your grade, any essay with three or more errors in the first paragraph will not be graded. It will be returned to you as an “F.”
