Assignment: Gandhi, “Economic and Moral Progress”

Your assignment for Monday is to write a précis over Mohandas Gandhi’s essay “Economic and Moral Progress” (p. 332 in Reading the World). You should use the basic format that we used before, but this one can be a little longer. Here are the requirements:

  • Typed, double-spaced;
  • A sentence including the author, title, and date, a verb, and a “that” clause containing the major claim or idea;
  • A couple of sentences explaining how the author develops the claim;
  • 2-3 sentences providing key facts and/or details;
  • A sentence stating the author’s purpose, followed by an “in order” phrase.

This assignment is due Monday for all students who were here to get the assignment on Thursday.
