Use Times New Roman (Font 12) and two paragraphs for each of the 5 questions (two pages of content) . Additionally, I want you to state each topic…

Use Times New Roman (Font 12) and two paragraphs for each of the 5 questions (two pages of content). Additionally, I want you to state each topic question followed by your response.

Based on the assigned readings, your responses are to be in your own words with no copying except for minimal quotes that must be properly cited. What I am looking for here are your own thoughts and opinions that demonstrate your understanding of the topics and the course materials. Since, you will be using the assigned course materials to address the topic questions, you are not required to include a bibliography list.  I want you to share your own thoughts in your own words in completing this assignment.

If you have any questions or concerns with the assignment please contact me.
