Essay Questions – Reminders

  • You are ALWAYS encouraged to “expand” your answers beyond just what you have read in the textbook, just make sure and cite any sources (using the APA style) you use OTHER than the textbook. NO need to cite the textbook in your answer. DON’T be to “short” with your answers. Your answers must reflect your understanding of the concept(s), and that really can’t be done in one or two sentences! These are essay questions, NOT short answer questions, so a minimum of two (2), well written paragraphs is expected for each answer. And remember, if there is more than one “part” to an answer, EACH part must be answered as a separate, quality paragraph.
