I need an explanation for this English question to help me study.
Choose one letter from each number and write one essay per letter. You should upload me one document with two essays on it. Do not combine the two questions into one essay.
Your essays should be well-developed, with an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. There is no length requirement, but I will consider answers fewer than 500 words as less developed than others.
You do not need a Works Cited, but if you quote, summarize, or paraphrase any text, you must cite it. Your response should not contain more than 10% summary, paraphrase, or quotation. In other words, the majority of your response should be analysis. Significant points will be deducted from answers that spend more time summarizing than analyzing.
The two texts are:
1. Alderman, Naomi. The Power
2. Eggers, David. The Circle
1. Privacy/Information and Commodities (Choose one of these)
a.How is privacy or information manipulated, controlled, or used against people in two of the texts we read?
b.How are basic commodities (like food, water, healthcare, shelter, clothing) used to manipulate people in at least two of the texts we read?
2. Power and Society (Choose one of these)
a.Examine ignorance in at least two texts we have read. Explain how forced or chosen ignorance leads to a usurpation of power and choice. With this option, you could pull different examples of how this plays out in society.
b.Define power and examine how it works in at least two texts. How do we define, manipulate, and capitalize on power? How can power be used to control others? Note: You may not rely on a dictionary (online or print) definition of power. Develop one that is based on the texts we’ve read so far.
