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.
- The paper should be typed and 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 by hand.
- Staple the sheets together. You've bought a dictionary, maybe even 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. [ read more ]
- Don't plagiarize. The availability of text files for downloading from the Internet 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 in quotation marks and attributed to its source. Plagiarism is considered academic misconduct. [ read more ]
