Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
DO NOT USE DIRECT QUOTES in writing your essays. In other words, don’t copy conceptual definitions, quotes, or other long amounts of text from the readings and paste them in quotation marks in your answers. You must use your OWN WORDS and paraphrase as needed. I’ll deduct 20 points off your response if you rely on direct quotes to answer the question. NO DIRECT QUOTES! ü CITATIONS ARE REQUIRED throughout your responses. If you cite the lecture, indicate the lecture # and the time you are citing (Lecture 2, 5:33). If you are citing the textbook, use the book publisher and Chapter/Section (OpenStax, 12.2). For all other readings, use the author, year, and page # if there is a page #. You don’t have to be perfect or fancy, but I should able to find the references. ü You should use ONLY sources we have used in this course to answer your questions. Google is not your friend for the final exam. Essay responses that have no citations or rely on Google searches rather than materials we are using the class will be penalized heavily. Please rely on the materials we have used in the course.
