MID-TERM TEST (in class; February 10th) You will have two hours to write the exam. You are not allowed to have any notes or books with you. You must leave your bags along the walls of the auditorium; don’t forget to turn off your cell phones and leave them in your bags.

You will once again have some choice. You must answer ONE of these questions with an essay. Both questions are of equal value. For a list of possible questions and topics, please see the list at the very end of the document.

Your essay must be clearly organized and support your thesis statement well. Try to stay as close as possible to the text(s). • Be specific; avoid vague or superficial statem
