Tips: You must write sensible, clear and grammatically correct answers. Most of these questions will require a substantial paragraph or two as an answer, but please do not write more than 200 words for any of your answers (this paragraph contains exactly 100 words). When you cite evidence from one of our selections in the textbook or supplemental readings, you’ll need to use proper documentation form. You should also use correct title form when you refer to any of these works by its title, but you don’t need to give your own titles to the answers you write.
