Compare the information to what is in the textbook for this course. Are there similarities in belief amongst the authors? Are there differences of opinions? Explain.
What are your ideas on this topic? Did you have pre-conceived ideas before you researched this topic? How have your thoughts changed since researching this information?
Feel free to include other information as appropriate.
Your written paper should be at least two pages long – not counting the title page and the reference page. You are to use Times New Roman, 12 point font. Margins should be one inch.

You are to have a title page. Information on the title page should be centered horizontally and vertically. Include your title for the paper, your name, this course name, and date of submission.
