For this assignment you are to look at the ways courtship rituals have (or have not) changed over the last generation or two. In order to do this, you will be required to spend some time interviewing a parent, grandparent, or another member of an older generation to discover the ways in which the dating practices of that generation differ (or don’t differ) from those of your own. In your essay, you should also offer some analysis of why things have (or have not) changed, and indicate whether you think the change (or similarity) is for the better. You may also rely on Patricia Cohen’s essay, “Reality TV: Surprising Throwback to the Past?,” or any other outside source you find that is relevant to your topic.
