This essay continues your work from Week 1. You will work off your same Paper 1!

1.  First, make sure that you have revised your Week 1 Paper based on the feedback received from your instructor. Format and grammar errors should be corrected.

2.  Next, you will research and write about the causes behind your Group/Individual and the motivations behind their acts of terror. Be sure to tie you research in with the Theories that you learn from your textbook in for Weeks 1 and 2!

This adds to the body of your Week 1, between 1-2 pages.
