Gorbachev Paragraph Assignment
Well, it is a
nice image, "Glory to Work." The problem that Gorbachev had to deal
with was that no one was really working--even though they were going to
work--That was not good for the Russian economy.
After reading some of Gorbachev's statements
Answer the following question in a paragraph:
Citing specific evidence from the information about Gorbachev, what
did Gorbachev hope to achieve with his policy of perestroika?
Your paragraph should be about
one-half page in length, double-spaced with one-inch margins, font size 10 or 12; it should
contain a concise topic sentence that directly responds to the assigned
question (no need to define terms or cite a dictionary) and use
direct, quoted material to support your points. You
may consider submitting a draft of your assignment to your instructor for
feedback before submitting the assignment for a grade. Please send some specific questions that you would like answered about
your draft. The questions can be general (Is my thesis/first sentence clear?) or
specific (Is the phrase, "Chardin was jeweller," written correctly?).
Your assignment should be sent to your course
instructor following the directions
for submitting assignments.
