The final exam will consist on writing an essay on the topics included below.  The grade will be solely base d on the essay. It must be well written.Also, accurately express your ideas.  The essay must not be a retelling of the events of the story for the sake of retelling them.  Retelling a part of the story must be to make a point.  Credit the source of any opinion which does not belong to the student writing the essay.  Not doing so is plagiarism, and will result in annulling the exam, and the student not passing the course.

Also, avoid being repetitive. An idea already express ed in a paragraph should not be repeat ed in successive paragraphs. The minimum length is the two-page, five-paragraph essay:  in the first paragraph you should introduce the topic and express the main idea to be developed.  Paragraphs 2-3 should present arguments, examples, quotations, etc. to support the main idea presented in the first paragraph.  The last paragraph makes the conclusion.  Greater effort and extension will certainly be taken into account.  Please, confirm that you received this email and you understood and will adhere to these guidelines.  If you have any doubt, feel free to write me.
