Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements
Nearly every week this semester, students will submit papers. Discussion papers (3 pages in length, typed, double-spaced) will explore a question or a topic that we are scheduled to examine together in class. The purpose of these papers is to provide each student an opportunity to use evidence from the required readings to examine his or her own thoughts regarding a central question in the course. Weekly discussion papers will count as 50 percent of the overall course grade. These papers are analytic papers and accordingly have no “wrong” answers. However, they can have “bad” answers. A “bad” answer is one that does not use the required readings as sources of evidence to support your argument. Reference to the assigned readings is mandatory, and reference to outside sources in addition to the required readings is welcome but not required as a way to support and clarify the student-writer’s opinions.
