Supplemental Questions
  1. Write a tweet (140 characters or fewer) that tells us who you are. Now, dissect it (800-1,000 words). Writing a truthful account of oneself for an audience you don’t know is a tall order. Why did you choose those words? Make sure that you clearly include your tweet at the beginning of your essay.
  2. Choose a contentious issue about which you feel passionate and defend your position in 800-1,000 words. Be sure to acknowledge the opposing side and support your argument with citations and a bibliography.
