This form is a ten-point assignment; grading is based on the quality and effort put into the answers (see p. 227 in the book for general grading criteria). For this, you will need to refer to section 2.3 on the website (http://enwiki.org/w/IFLS_306). You will need to watch the Pinker video (at least enough of it to understand his general argumentation), and look at the online articles in this section. The Guardian article is also in the course book, p. 38. For a review of our discussion of different types of sources, see http://enwiki.org/w/Academic_versus_non-academic_sources.
You are free to discuss this assignment with classmates, but your responses below should be your own. This is due Sunday night at 11:59pm
