Student essays should reflect critical thinking, a clear understanding of the readings, historical awareness and analysis, and the ability to connect the readings to your own experiences and to the world around you. Remember that this is not a book review or summary. Instead, you are being asked to examine each book and to form connections to the world around you. Each essay must include the following:
• A concrete connection to the world today and related movements
• A concrete connection to your own experiences
• An analysis of the author’s central ideas and your reaction to those ideas
• Connections to other course readings, class discussions, and outside materials.
