You have to have the book Think: Social Problems by John D. Carl and read chapter 17,19,20because teacher required at least 3 quotations in MLA format in essay from the reading!
These assignments are meant to engage our course material for a selected week. Flex Your Head Assignments are college-level essays and should have a solid introduction, critically analytical body, and a strong conclusion. The key to these assignments is engaging a critical perspective about a topic tying in your own analysis (not your opinion, mind you) about that topic.
Flex Your Head papers should be 2.5 – 3 pages long, double-spaced. Make sure you follow the required writing guidelines in the syllabus. If you are given prompts for a particular paper, they are not to be answered one-by-one, but meant to be woven into a solid, thoughtful, college-level essay.
Make sure you use at least three quotes from the readings as you write your reflection. I should see a critical engagement here.
Always follow the writing guidelines, to the letter. Be sure to cite within the body of your assignment, but also in a works cited area at the end.
As always, if you have questions, post to our forum.
Follow the Writing Guidelines in the Syllabus.
What does the film, Operation Hollywood have to do with Chapters 17, 19, & 20? Clearly Chapter 20 will be the most relevant but do bring in the other chapters as well. Use examples from the chapters and the film to broadly discuss the connections when it comes to the Military Industrial Complex, War, and Social Problems.
