Self Examination Essay. For each journal, you will analyze one of the assigned readings for that corresponding week. For example, for week three, journal two, you will analyze either “The Constitution of the United States of America,” “The Declaration of Independence,” or “The Qualities of the Prince.” Why do these works still have an impact on our culture today?
Why is it necessary to read these more than once in our lives? How do they impact us? When analyzing these works, you will choose three important quotations on which to elaborate and discuss. You must explain why they are significant enough to mention, how they impact the understanding of argument, and why they apply to current culture, issues, society, etc. This is your opportunity to respond to the literature and show how much critical thinking and writing you are able to do with the material.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
