I need help for writing the following essays. Each question needs to be responded to in an organized, 500-word essay. Therefore, there will be two different 500-word essays with at least two reference sources for each one. Cite the resources used using APA format. Try to paraphrase mainly and use direct quotes sparingly. The essay should not be all material associated with the issue because 50% of the essay, at the most, should be your personal analysis of the issue. I need this by Wednesday 10/19/2011. I have a lot of weekly material from class already and I will integrate that into the two essays you help me with, which will ultimately end up in one final draft essay. Thanks in advance for the help!
