  12. 12. Most freshman level courses that require you to write a paper will NOT give instructions on how to do research/apply the format; you are expected to know how to do this already
  13. 13. You can expect to do between three and seven papers in your first semester of college next fall.</li></li></ul><li>Grading: First Quarter of Course:<br />-Introductory Activites (some "risk-free"): 25 pts.<br />-Research/Thesis Question: no student may begin research until they formulate and discuss their RESEARCH QUESTIONS with the instructor(5)<br />-Students must submit an ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY before drafting the paper(10)<br />-Students must participate in a DRAFT ADVISEMENT session prior to turning in the paper(10)<br />-FINAL PAPER(50): 25 points for the actual written paper;<br />25 points for a media presentation to accompany it (different types of delivery methods & media will be covered in class)<br />TOTAL POINTS: 100<br />Points are deducted in instances where the assignment fails <br />to meet criteria and/or is late; see website for full details.<br />
  14. 14. "Risk free" activities:<br />Some assignments are called "risk-free" activities. In other words, you are REQUIRED to complete it, but all you have to do to receive full credit is to do it.<br />

  27. 27. selected a TOPIC (please refer my list of
  28. 28. allowable topics we'll go over tomorrow) and have developed 2 to 3 research questions, which are things you want to find out about this topic (I’ll explain more on this tomorrow); have a backup topic, because students often change their minds based on the ‘researchability’ of their topics
