By now you should have an idea of what you would like to write your first essay about. Please get a memo to me by the date indicated on your syllabus letting me know what your first choice of topic is. You should also identify a second choice in case the first one doesn’t work out for some reason.
In the memo, I’d also like you to outline a general “plan of attack.” Where will you start looking for information? What kinds of sources will you use? What people might you talk to? What videos might you watch?
Please use this memo as a guideline. Type it just the way this one is typed. Memos should be typed, brief, clear, and concise. Good luck with your ideas!
