for information on prewriting techniques. If you have been taught some other style of prewriting that works for you, however, please by all means use it!

This prewrite may be done via text input, or you can upload files, so if you want to take photos or make scans of a prewrite on paper, you can do so. The prewrite is due by midnight on Wednesday, and the rough version of the essay itself will be due no later than Saturday, so please be aware of the timeframe you have to get crackin' on this paper!

You are going to be REQUIRED to integrate quotes from one or more of the readings you have done so far out of essay selections I have had you look at, so consider that as you choose which topic to write on.

    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.
