Third short paper
- A third paper will not be required. If the grade you received for the first two papers is
acceptable to you, you need not write a third paper. I will take the grades for the first
two papers and recalculate the total for these out of 36. For example, if you received 8.6 out of
12 (72%) on the first paper and 9.1 out of 12 (76%) on the second, for a
total of 17.7 out of 24, that is 74%, I will give you 0.74 x 36 = 26.6 out
of 36 for the papers portion of the final grade.
- If you decide to write a third paper, this paper will in no
case lower the grade you receive for the 36 points for papers, although it
might raise your grade.
Topics for third paper
- Rewrite either the first or second
- Any topic from the list for the
second paper (other than a topic you selected for the second paper).

- Explain and critique Parsons’s

and Weber are reflected in the class analysis of Erik Olin Wright.
