ESSAY#1 INSTRUCTIONS This Essay#1 is graded (5% of the course grade). But its intent is mainly diagnostic, to ensure that your essay-writing skills are up to speed before you write Essay#2. I highly recommend that you take the optional "Quiz Snack#1" as I provide some quick writing tips there. Your essay should be focused/have a main point , and its prose should be lucid and correct. At my discretion, poorly executed essays will receive no grade (a "0" as a place-holder), and I will ask you to resubmit with perhaps a side-bar brief email/tutorial exchange with me or a visit to FIU’s Writing Center.

Option #1 Amplify on your ideas/postings in the second Time-Thought Exercise (Rousseau/nostalgia).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
