1) What is your purpose in writing this essay? In your response, explore the deeper meaning of this question. The goal is not just to complete the assignment but instead to convey a message. What do you plan to accomplish with this essay? What do you hope the reader takes away from this argument?

My purpose in writing this essay was to show that even though Susan B. Anthony received jail time for what she did, it could have been the best decision she could of made. I plan to accomplish the idea that even though something may seem like the wrong thing to do, in the end maybe it was the best thing. I hope the reader understands Susan B. Anthony and why she did what she thought was right.

2) What did you learn from completing this assignment? Did you experience a new understanding of the topic? Did you change your perspective after completing the essay?

I learned from the assignment honestly how to properly do a critical evaluation on a persons speech, essay, or writing. I gained a new experience of understanding after reading Susan B. Anthony’s speech. It did not change my perspective because I have always thought that women did deserve a say just as much as men do.

3) What difficulties did you encounter during the writing or editing phases of the assignment?

The difficulties I encountered were trying to critically evaluate this speech.

4) What did you enjoy about this assignment?

Yes, I did enjoy this assignment.

5) Which essay did you chose from the "Classic American Arguments" section in your textbook? Why did you choose it?

I chose “On Women’s Right to Vote” By SUSAN B. ANTHONY. I chose it because it is also something I agree with.

6) Is there anything else you would like for me to know before I read your essay?

No, I think those past questions I just answered pretty much sum everything up.
