Instructions: Answer two of the following questions taken from your study questions. Your answers should be typed, submitted as a Word document, and where appropriate, cite your sources (including assigned readings and the textbook, but no need to cite class lectures).  You are welcome to consult additional academic sources (i.e. published articles and books, but NOT blogs, or encyclopaedias, including, but not limited to, Wikipedia, etc.) If you have any doubt about a source’s appropriateness, please ask me).  

Each answer should be approximately 2- 2 1/2 pages double spaced. However, if they are slightly more or less, that is fine—I am grading for content, not length. 

Please be sure to answer all parts of the question. There is no extra credit for answering additional questions.
