Write a 500-600 write-up that discusses the material from the readings. In the write-ups, reflect on what you have learned, rather than summarize or regurgitate the course material. Furthermore, discuss as much of the readings as possible – and not focus on one particular reading assignment. Although you are encouraged to cite material from the readings, these are best used to support the main arguments in your write-ups. There are many approaches to tackling this assignment, but here are a few possibilities:

● Compare and contrast the main ideas from the course to your observations of our society, government policy, real-life phenomena, etc.

● Discuss, in detail, how the lectures and readings surprised you and challenged your previous line of thinking or assumptions. ● Think critically about ideas or lines of thought discussed in class and discuss their strengths and weaknesses.
