Continue research for Paper #2. This is important and should take a not insignificant part of your time.

Decide what term or terms in your topic you want to define. Write them down in your notes; I’m not going to collect them, but writing them down helps you commit more fully to a decision.

Finally, please read the two sample definition papers: one that I created, and another written by a student in my class last semester. Select one term that the writer defines in EACH definition paper, for a total of two terms. For each term, identify 1) what class or group each writer says the term belongs to, and 2) its distinctive characteristics.

As you read, consider what else, besides placing an item in a class & listing its distinctive qualities, the writers say about their terms in order to define them clearly. Briefly describe at least two things the writers say about their terms. Please use complete sentences.
