Unit 6 study guidehell


The purpose of the study guide is to help you outline the readings for the unit and to give you a place to note the key points of each section. Each study guide outlines the chapter/reading for you and gives you a space to fill in key points under each heading. You should write a brief paragraph (4–6 sentences) under each sub-heading for the paper (see the “write summary here” area).

When you complete the study guide, submit it through the unit’s study guide Dropbox. Remember to write in complete sentences and use your own words. Plagiarism is unacceptable and will result in a zero grade and be reported to the Provost’s Plagiarism Database. Each study guide is worth 10 points.
