Each question is worth 15 points. Points will be earned based on several criteria (see rubric on Canvas), this includes proper coverage of the essay topics. Quality answers for each question should be about two (450-500 words) to no more than three double-spaced pages in length.

One single reference section at the end of your answer sheet is recommended.
