For your midterm essay, select ONE of the questions below and write an essay 2-3 pages in length answering the question with little outside research. In other words, your answer should be unique and in your own voice.
A proper essay should contain an introduction with a thesis statement, several supporting body paragraphs, and a concluding paragraph with reliable sources, if any, to support your arguments. Do Not Use Wikipedia.
Make sure to cite your sources according to MLA or Chicago/Turabian writing manuals. Also, review East Los Angeles College’s library definition of plagiarism by clicking here.
