Project 3 consists of a 1000-1200 word academic essay that supports an arguable claim through background/context on the topic,
evidence, counterarguments, and conclusion that offers the reader something for further thought. The essay is complemented by a
presentation that retains the same purpose and claim as the essay, but presents the evidence-based argument in a digital medium.
