It should be approximately 5 pages long and make use of two sources from class. The two sources can be films articles websites videos or a combination of those. You
may use outside sources but this is not required. The focus of the paper should be your own ideas. You should have a clear main idea (a thesis) and it should be
somewhere in the beginning of the paper so I know what I am reading about. You should support your idea directly with the sources you are discussing. Try to stick to
one main point and dont wander into more than perhaps one secondary point. Its a short essay! The purpose of this paper is to give you an opportunity to further
discuss something from class that you have more to say about. Perhaps you have been too shy to raise your hand but have a terrific thought about sex education.
Perhaps you learned something that changed the way you view healthcare or government from the AIDS documentaries. Perhaps you had a brilliant observation about Beyonce
on the tip of your tongue but the bell rang. This is your chance to share.
