This journal entry does not have to be written in paragraph form.  Just use these questions as a template and plug in your answers as a bullet point list of fragmented sentences, much like taking notes or writing a simple outline. You should present 3-5 bulletpoints for each question. However, if you feel more comfortable writing each answer in paragraph form, you certainly may do so.

***Note the exception that the thesis should be one to three full sentences long, regardless of whether you choose to do the bulletpoint format or paragraph format.

CITATIONS: You are responsible for citing the major assertions and information you are taking from the readings.  You may use MLA citation style or the Chicago Style for your citations.
