Week 2

Dear students,
Your homework from last week was to write a minimum of two paragraphs for an essay of between 150 and 250 words about a graded reader that you read from last semester. Your summary should include an APA formatted in-text citation marker, and you should include a full APA formatted reference after your opinion. Did you also post your homework using the online form? Please keep your written work in a clear file, and post your homework online, too. If you wish to edit your work, you may do so via your email receipt. (Do not use the form for the same homework twice).

Today you will start writing about one of your discussion topics, fashion, art, and architecture.
Your topics this semester are:

Fashion Art and Architecture
Human rights
Social issues

Your homework today is to write either the summary and in-text citation in APA format, or your opinion and reference (in APA format).


Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
