Your preparation should consist of the following:

I will grade for quality and not completion.

1.  What is the most important sentence in the article?  Explain your thinking.

2.  Does the following quote agree or disagree with the text?  Explain your thinking.

"The essential difference between emotion and reason is that emotion leads to action while reason leads to conclusions."
