Successful essays will use concrete examples from assigned readings to substantiate their points. Occasional reference to a video lecture or film is acceptable, but answers must rely primarily on the readings. Avoid vague responses at all costs. Grades will be based on organization, clarity of writing style, strength of argument, and the quality of evidence used to support the main analytical points.
A note about citation: use parenthetical notations when making reference to information and ideas contained in an assigned text or video. For example: (Sellstrom 2010: 7; Alegi video 3). If you are quoting directly from a source, then you must use quotation marks followed by the parenthetical notation. No footnotes or “Works Cited” page are required. Do not use any web sources beyond those assigned in this course. Academic dishonesty will be severely punished.
