e. Is this relationship that you have established in agreement or in disagreement with what was discussed throughout the course? Why?
f. Describe the idea/evidence in the course theme that you are questioning. Indicate why you agree or disagree with it. What kinds of evidence, experiences, or thoughts lead you to agree or disagree?
