This assignment aims to (1) test your understanding of the topics we discussed in the first three weeks of class and (b) to make sure you are doing your readings/listening to your assigned TED talks etc.
Please keep in mind that longer answers are often more detailed and contain more references, and will therefore often be awarded higher marks than very short answers. If you really want to get an A, please keep this in mind.
If you want to get an A in this assignment, read the accompanying rubric very carefully and follow the guidelines set out there.
