Do not use attachments, google docs, or any other links, and do not post your paper in the ‘comments’ section beneath that window. Additional Guidelines: Each paragraph should be concise in order to focus the reader on the themes contained therein. You can use simple author/page citations when referring to a passage–either through a direct quotation or a paraphrase from the readings of no more than 1-2 sentences (for exam​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​ple, Parsons, p. 14; pp. 22-24). Make sure to include a full descriptive paper title on the top of the page but do not insert your name or any course information or text at the top of the paper, as this is automatically indicated digitally on Blackboard and is totally redundant material. As you analyze the relevant issues, arguments, and concepts events, remember to revise and edit your work as you go along and proofread carefully. It takes a fair amount of time to thoroughly understand the sources and write a solid analysis incorporating original interpretations, so avoid taking shortcuts or not allowing enough time for reading, writing, and thinking. Make sure to avoid run-on sentences and paragraphs. Each paragraph should be concise and focused with no more than 5-6 sentences. You can imagine writing for a general audience rather than the instructor although, unlike the discussion board responses, which are read by all your papers will not be shared. The five components of the posted grading rubric are knowledge of content; use of evidence; organization and structure of topics; writing style; and interpretation/argument​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​.
