English 200 Midterm Examination—Fall 2017

Directions: Choose one letter from each number and write one essay per letter. You should upload me one document with two essays on it. Do not combine the two
questions into one essay. Your essays should be well-developed, with an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. You do not need a Works Cited, but if you quote,
summarize, or paraphrase any text, you must cite it. Your response should not contain more than 10% summary, paraphrase, or quotation. In other words, the majority of
your response should be analysis. Significant points will be deducted from answers that spend more time summarizing than analyzing. Only write about texts we have read
in the first half of the semester.
1. Privacy/Information and Commodities (Choose one of these)a. How is privacy or information manipulated, controlled, or used against people in two of the texts we read?
b. How are basic commodities (like food, water, healthcare, shelter, clothing) used to manipulate people in at least two of the texts we read?2. Power and Society (Choose one of these)a. Examine ignorance in at least two texts we have read. Explain how forced or chosen ignorance leads to a usurpation of power and choice. With this option, you
could pull different examples of how this plays out in society.
b. Define dystopia and examine how it works in at least two texts. What does it take for a society to be deemed dystopic? Do you think these ends are possible?
this is the book that the essay should talk about :
