A written commentary describing what your concentration is and how it evolved must accompany the work in this section. Responses should be legible and concise (extra sheets should not be attached; commentaries that exceed the allotted space will not be read). The commentary is not graded, but it does help in the evaluation process. The commentary consists of responses to the following:
