Fundamentals of the material


This assignment consists of a short essay question, and a short response question. The

main intent of these questions is to ensure that you have a sound grasp of the fundamentals of the material

presented in this unit. To that end, there is a 3 to 4 page (1000 words) limit for the short essay question.

I’m not so concerned with whether you agree with a particular author or not. The quality of your answer

is based on your exposition of the competing positions, your comparative analysis of those positions and,

lastly, your argument in support of the position you defend.
