With the two readings by in mind, write an essay in which you discuss the importance of memorials in healing wounds. Be sure to include very short summaries of both readings that relate to your analysis. You must refer to both readings in your essay and cite in MLA style.
In your essay, you must convey a clear understanding of the texts, either by integrating them into your argument or, at least, by summarizing them. Your essay should include no fewer than two citations, in MLA style, from each of the readings. Citations should include page numbers, not paragraph numbers.
Take some time at the beginning of the exam period to plan and organize your thoughts. Leave time at the end to proofread and make corrections. You may use a dictionary.
Any time you use the exact words from the readings, you must use quotation marks. Any time you quote, paraphrase, or summarize, you must refer to the author by his or her last name.
