Here are some general essay questions. Each one is worth up to six "participation points" if answered exceptionally well, though most good answers will receive about four points . You can submit more than one. They are due the same time as the projects.
Good answers will be carefully written and between 1,200 and 2000 words. Use of personal experience or presentation of reactions and opinions is encouraged -- but remember to support your points with close reference to the material covered in the course.
Also, be honest. You don't have to tell me that the course changed your life.
