NOTE: The midterm exam can be taken any time during week 10.
The midterm exam is a 750-850 word cause and effect essay based on the 1992 film, Malcolm X, (starring Denzel Washington and directed by Spike Lee). This essay will be the culmination of the writing skills you have learned in the course so far. This exam is a cause and effect essay, which means you will use the strategy you learned in Unit 3.
I am providing you the exam prompt you will use to write the essay. Using this prompt, you will create an outline of one page (back and front), which you will take to the testing center. During the exam, you will use this outline to write the essay.
NOTE: In the pre-exam preparation, you are only allowed to create an outline. You cannot write a rough draft.
