Write at least two paragraphs in response to each question [eight paragraphs total], being sure to integrate a variety of course material and outside research in your responses. It is necessary to reference (at the very least) the article you have been asked to read. Note that material which is directly quoted from a source should contain quotation marks (and a corresponding reference). Otherwise, material that is taken from a source should be stated in your own words, and referenced accordingly. Your responses should display a clear understanding of the articles, with an emphasis on accurate grammar, spelling, punctuation, word usage, and format. Responses should be single-spaced. Use 12 point Times new Roman font, with 1" margins. Restate the question before each response.
I have added the links to the articles from which the answers for the paragraphs should come from. Any questions please feel free to ask
