Mention specific details (terms, people, places, etc.) to support general statements. Write in complete sentences; no outline style or informal text lingo. You should gather specifics by consulting the Backman text and Jones’ lectures; however, the essay must be written in YOUR OWN WORDS. Do not cut and paste from the text or online or directly use others’ sentences. Best grades will be assigned to those who accurately address the assigned topic, compose an organized and well-written essay, provide generous specifics drawn from Backman and Jones, and properly heed the word count.
