In short, this essay asks you to imagine that a transformation has occurred and analyze, explicitly using what you have learned in this course and referencing readings, both how your future might unfold and how your past has (or has not) prepared you for this new future.Details and InstructionsThe essay MUST be completed (and preferably type-written) prior to the start of the final exam. You will submit the essay as soon as you walk into the classroom to take the exam. PLEASE STAPLE YOUR ESSAY!!!There is no minimum or maximum length for this essay. The essay is done, as far as Im concerned, when youve adequately addressed the question. You should focus on answering the question well, not how long your essay is.While you do not need to formally cite the material youre using unless you quote directly (Ill assume all material comes from the appropriate assigned readings), you must clearly indicate that you are relying on class material (and which material that is). Keep in mind that this is part of an exam; as such, I will evaluate you on how well you comprehend, utilize, and apply class material (see next page for more evaluation details). Class material includes discussions, but you should rely heavily on course readings and lecture material. An important note about academic integrity: Since this is a take-home essay, you may consult any readings, notes, or other class materials. However, your work MUST BE ORIGINALand you MAY NOT collaborate with others on this essay (this means you may not discuss the essayat allwith ANYONE else); I reserve the right to request an electronic copy of your essay to upload to Turnitin if I suspect that your work is not original or independent. Failure to submit a requested electronic copy will result in a score of 0 for the essay.EvaluationThis essay is worth 30 pointsof your final exam grade.
