This Written Assignment is at least three double-spaced pages of text (Times New Roman, font size 12) and you must consult a minimum of two academically credible sources (please avoid, if at all possible, using strictly the internet). Of course, the use of Wikipedia is off limits. Your paper MAY bleed over onto a fourth page…BUT, if it goes beyond four pages, you will lose points.
The Written Assignment needs to be turned in through the assignments section of the classroom for grading.
The Written Assignment must include a cover page with your name, course number and course title, instructor’s name, and date of turn in to the instructor in the bottom right hand corner, right justified. Additionally, you need to have a title for your paper (reasonably large print size) about 1/4 of the way down from the top of the page. And, you need to have an appropriate picture centered on the cover page. You must also include a bibliography at the end of your paper. While composing your paper, use proper English. Do not use abbreviations, contractions, passive voice, or first/second person (I, you, we, our, etc). The only place you will use first person is in your opinion paragraph. Before submitting your paper, check your grammar and use spell check. Remember, the way you talk is not the way you write a paper. WARNING: There has been a serious tendency for students to ignore proper punctuation in their papers, lately. This is especially true with leaving out most or all commas. I am going to seriously take off points for punctuation errors. Warning! If you make 5 or more comma errors, I WILL take off 5 points automatically.
