Each response will be graded for grammar, format, and the accuracy of the answer, so be sure to take your time and proof read. Also, be sure to address each part of the question. Format: Each response should be typed with the following format: 1 inch margins, single spaced, 12 point Times New Roman. Your name should be in the upper right corner (and nothing else), and you should write the title of your response as the chapter the question coincides with.

Keep in mind that it’s the quality of your response, not quantity, which counts
