It is the job of the presenter (paper) to formulate an argument responding to the central question. Take a position and defend it. There are no “right” answers. So I want to see you that you are reading the material and thinking about it.
The expectation is for you to cite (and quote) specific excerpts from the readings and cite them in the formulation of your ideas (more the better). You are to write around 1000-1750 words. Cite using MLA
