The following guidelines apply to all essay assignments: Each short essay must be at least one page long (12 point font, Times New Roman, double spaced) not counting headings or citations. In other words, the text of your paper must be one page in length. Superfluous wording or off topic wording will not be counted toward your page total. Essays will be graded according to the quality of the response (is it on topic, well researched, well written). Students will be marked down for typographical/spelling/grammatical errors. Students should cite their research in APA format (see FAQ sheet for more information). Students may not collaborate on essay assignments- each assignment is to be completed by the student, this includes sharing research information. Please also see the honor code and statement about plagiarism in this syllabus.
