You will gather evidence on all the topics, but write an essay on only ONE in the end. You may be asked to do activities with the other topics, so at least put thought into all. "I don't know" is not an answer.
Writing down textual evidence and taking physical notes only for your chosen essay is acceptable. All the sub questions need to be addressed in your essay. Do not merely compose in question/answer format. Strive for a cohesive whole, guided by a solid thesis.
We will work on incorporating textual evidence without "plop"
