-Your written responses SHOULD NOT be where the similarity comes from. The responses should be in your
own words, with NO DIRECT QUOTES and NO PARAPHRASING. The best approach is researching the topic, and then writing your response as if you are standing in front of a classroom without note cards explaining it to the class from memory. Your references are required to be shortened using tinyurl.com. Each question needs to be 5 to 7 sentences long.
