Papers should be typewritten (Times New Roman 12 pt. font) and double-spaced; no less than 3 pages in length and no more than 5 pages. (1 inch margins, left, right, top, and bottom) b. Rules of spelling, grammar, and composition will be closely. c. Papers should be proofread (not just spell checked and grammar checked) before they are submitted to the professor. d. Unless otherwise stated, it is assumed that the opinion that you are expressing is your own. Therefore there is no need to write, “In my opinion” or “I believe”. (Interact with the author: “George failed to support…”) e. Try to use action verbs whenever possible: avoid passive voice. (I.e. not “The author was trying to convey.” Use: “The attempt to convey.” –Passive voice is usually indicated by the use of “being verbs” …I was being, I will be—don’t use them) f. Don’t use slang or colloquialisms unless you have a specific reason for doing so. (I.e. “His metaphor seemed to have him barking up the wrong tree.”). How you will be graded? (Rubric).
