To respond persuasively, you will need to take a position on an issue: you will agree or disagree with the selected author or with a point raised by the author. Otherwise, this essay will be rather informal, what is sometimes called a personal perspective argument. You may think of it as a personal response that takes the form of an argument.
Your essay should be at least 500 words in length, excluding the work cited page. In addition, it should adhere to proper MLA format (which means, among other things, that it must be typed and double spaced). Please see the rubric for this assignment for additional criteria.
You will have one source only for this essay: the selected text from the list above. Please do not do any research for this assignment.
