In 200-250 words, answer the prompt. This assignment will be graded on a 10-point scale: 10 (A), 5 (C), or 0 (F). When completing this assignment, you are encouraged to think outside the box and provide details from beyond the text (e.g., personal experiences, outside sources, etc.), but using Herrick is a requirement when necessary.
You will receive the full 10 points for answering the questions completely in depth and creatively, you will receive 5 points for partially answering the questions, scarcely, and not critically and you will receive 0 points for not answering the questions at all or not putting forth any effort.
I expect you to construct a thesis with which you will lead your short essay. For example, “In his speech to rhetoric students, Soto often appealed to his credibility as a freelance writer to demonstrate his knowledge of effective communication.”
