In addition to building on skills from the previous two writing assignments, this essay will allow you to consider how key themes from course readings are expressed in spoken word.
four-page (~1200-word) essay:
Choose three authors we have read this semester
Marx’s Communist Manifesto,
Friedman’s “Capitalism and Freedom”
Ta-Nehisi Coates’s “Between the World and Me”
Mary Wollstonecraft’s “A Vindication of the Rights of Women”
and argue why we should vote Hillary. Justify your choice with specific examples from the texts and from the candidate’s statements in the debates, speeches, or in materials on the campaign websites.
• As always, have a strong, clear argument that unifies the essay.
• Successful essays will quote Coates/the candidates directly to support your claims.
