Respond with 1-2 paragraphs for each question. You must type your responses. I will initially check for completion at the beginning of class. Answers will be reviewed further by me after class. Your paragraph(s) needs to demonstrate understanding of the question and reading. No submittals will be accepted after the beginning of our meeting time. These answers should be done individually rather than with a partner.
