For the In-Class Essay on Thursday, April 22, you will read the article (posted on iLearn) entitled “What Causes Violence,” by Aletha Solter. In the essay you will write a summary of it, and then give your opinion, supported with references from any of the Unit 2 articles and real— life examples, taken from the news or from your own personal experience. To prepare for the essay: Read and annotate the article carefully (you will hand in your annotated copy of the article with the essay) Think about the essay questions below and formulate your response, using any method that works for you—outlining, listing, clustering, free-writing.

    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.
