Requirements for Writing Assignments Writing assignments in this course are essentially short summaries of topic-related parts of the course textbooks. The purpose of these papers is for you to demonstrate that you (a) have read and understood the relevant texts, and (b) are capable of presenting a summary of your readings in a clear, coherent, logically organized manner. Do not wait until the last minute to work on these assignments because haste will diminish the quality of your work. In short, here is what I expect from good papers: 1. Important definitions are stated clearly and early. 2. Definitions are illustrated by a brief yet informative example. 3. The analysis of the topic issues is easy to understand because of clear definitions and supporting examples. 4. The presentation moves in an easy to follow, well-organized, step-by-step way. This is something every reader appreciates. 5. The presentation is well-supported by citations of specific pages in your sources (course textbooks). Below are specific requirements regarding the format and organization of your short papers. I. FORMAT 1. Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) ONLY! 2. Paper should be approximately three pages long, with line spacing at 1.5 lines. 3. Font size: 12pt 4. Numbered pages, beginning with Page 1. 5. No separate title page. No separate bibliography page. 6. DO NOT USE BOLDFACE ANYWHERE IN THE PAPER. II. LAYOUT On top of Page 1 the following must be clearly typed: COURSE, NAME, PAPER NUMBER (e.g., Paper #3) TOPIC TITLE III. ORGANIZATION 1. Your paper must begin with an introduction paragraph, in which you clearly state: (a) what you will be writing about (e.g., In this paper I will discuss such-and-such theory and its difficulties; or such-and-such argument supporting or challenging such-and-such theory, etc.) followed by (b) a clear outline of how you will proceed discussing your topic, so that I will know the order in which you will present and discuss your material. For example: “I will begin by outlining the theory T. Next I will discuss such-and-such advantages which T has over such-and-such other theories. Finally, I will present such-and-such arguments against T, and explain why these arguments seriously undermine the theory.” 2. After the introduction paragraph, you should proceed with presenting your material in the order promised in the introduction. Definitions of important theories and/or concepts should be stated clearly and early in the exposition, so that the reader will know right away the main ideas you will elaborate and evaluate later. Use direct quotations very sparingly (only on the most important points). Instead, paraphrase the relevant definitions and examples in your own words. 3. Throughout your paper, your presentation of definitions, arguments, objections, etc. must be well supported by citing specific pages from the relevant parts of the course textbooks. This is an absolutely essential and non-negotiable requirement! Here is an example of how to cite a textbook in support of your claims
