The assignment below will serve as the midterm exam for this course. You will have one week to complete the assignment, and there will be no opportunity for resubmission.

All in-text citations should follow MLA format, and all three works all must be cited using MLA format on your Works Cited page. Your support for your argument should come only from these three readings – there should be no other outside research completed for this assignment.
