answer questions about readings

Please follow instructions in terms of how many sentences you write. Try to fill each sentence with as much detail as possible, while still being grammatically correct. Writing more than what is asked will not improve your grade, and may lower it. When you summarize particular sections of the essay, reference the page number. Don’t give any specific citations. The point is to summarize in your own words.
