That can make a big difference in your grade. Do not expect much sympathy at the end of the semester if you have not taken advantage of this opportunity to increase your total grade.

What’s With These  “Short Papers”? For all of the short writing assignments, you may pick a topic from the textbook, the PowerPoint, or the assigned readings in the course reader. Pick the thing that interests you the most, and do some thinking about it, what it means, how it happened, whether it is still relevant, what it says about human nature, etc. s The purpose really is to get you to start incorporating a sense of history into your own worldview. Some of the best papers I've seen came from students who were very disturbed by something in the material and were trying to sort things out. Other times something will strike someone as humorous or odd. Those things make good topics as well. It’s okay to be funny – I like comedy.
