Use the following analytic framework to construct your essay. Required: a minimum of three scholarly sources to support the analysis (your text can be one source). Be sure this is an integrated, fully developed essay (e.g., do not simply provide a response in each category of the analytic framework below). As with all analytic essays, you should have a well-formulated introduction and conclusion.
