“Second Treatise of Government.
For your third EWC Primary Source Exercise, you must read John Locke’s “Second Treatise of Government.” A link to this document can be found in the “Read” section of the October 5th module. After reading the primary source, answer the prompt found at its end and follow the rules listed below. EWC Primary Source Exercises must be a minimum of 400 words in length. Even if the prompt at the end of the assigned document indicates a shorter length, disregard it and follow the length requirement in the preceding sentence. All EWC Primary Source Exercises must be written with a formal rather than conversational tone. They must present an argument that directly addresses the exercise prompt. DO NOT merely summarize the source, and DO NOT use any outside sources. You will be graded on your ability to analyze the primary source. You may use material from the textbook and lectures to provide context, but focus on analyzing the primary source. Your EWC essays should be free of grammatical errors and all references to the primary source must be quoted and cited appropriately. Cite the source using simple, parenthetical citations at the end of each sentence.
