Point value: 200

Write an essay of 1200 words (a bit longer is okay too). Please note: you will need to do some research regardless of which option you choose. You can use readings from the class, but you should also consult additional sources. You will need to document all information you get from secondary sources using parenthetical citations within your paper and a list of sources at the end of your paper. If you use APA format, the list of sources is labeled References; if you use MLA format, the list of sources is labeled Works Cited.

Your presentation to this group is expected to be about 20 minutes long.
