Cultural Anthropology: End-of-the-module summary paper
Due: 1st week of following module
Page 6 of the syllabus (Student Guide) has a fairly complete
description and outline of what you are expected to cover in your paper.
The following instructions may seem finicky. Your adherence to them, however, will greatly
help me to read and properly grade your paper.
If it is to be presented in printed form, the paper should be double spaced. Use
honest font size and margins. One-inch margins all around and 12 point type is a good
norm. Using large fonts and margins to pad out a too-short paper is both obvious and
upsetting to me.
Number your pages. If you can't figure out how to make your word processor do it, then do it
Staple the sheets together. You a computer. It's time to buy a stapler.
Put your name on the paper.
I expect students to produce written work that is focused, well-developed, organized and
relatively free of grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors. Papers that fall short of this
standard will not be accepted; the work will be returned to the students for revision within a
reasonable time. [ more ]
Don't plagiarize. The availability of material on the Internet
which can be easily copied and pasted has blurred the distinction between "plagiarism" and
"referencing." Plagiarism is the use of verbatim text from another source without referencing that
source. Text which you copy directly from somewhere must be placed inside quotation marks
and attributed to its source. Plagiarism is considered academic misconduct. [ more ]
