Successful essays will use concrete examples from assigned readings to substantiate their points. Occasional reference to a video lecture or film is acceptable, but answers must rely primarily on the readings. Avoid vague responses at all costs. Grades will be based on organization, clarity of writing style, strength of argument, and the quality of evidence used to support the main analytical points.
- Write an essay that agrees or disagrees with this statement: “Soccer in the U.S.A. is the sport of the future—and always will be.” Begin by stating your position clearly, then draw on the assigned materials to construct a persuasive argument.
