WRITING GUIDELINES

Mini-Papers

  1. Each assignment should include a heading with your name, course section number, date, and any other information required by specific assignment. (N/A)
  2. Any formal and academic writing in this class means:
    1. Proper footnote or endnote citations
      (Chicago Style/ CMS: see Reference Section for links).
    2. Proper Bibliography page (Chicago Style / CMS)
    3. Use of proper grammar! Avoid slang unless it is part of a quote! You may lose points for grammatical and spelling errors.
    4. Remember to take the topic of your assignment/paper seriously and to engage the subject matter applying reflective, critical, creative, and analytical thinking. Be sure to clearly state the topic you are addressing.
  3. For Mini-papers have an introduction, body, and conclusion in your paper.
    1. The introduction is where you are setting up what the specific subject and question you are answering is. The introduction sets about to explain why this topic is important, resolves an issue or responds to a specific question(s), and tells how the paper will be organized. Get to the point of your paper and explain what your goal is for the paper. Introduce your agenda for the assignment not the general or broader topic area.
    2. The body of your paper is the argument. This is where you bring in your resources, citations, data, and analysis, give example and detail to your argument. The body will be made of multiple sections and will look back to the introduction and forward to the conclusion.
    3. The conclusion is not just the summary or full restatement of your introduction. Rather, this is where you drive home the point and give the answer to the question you pose in the introduction. The most important points of the body can be re-framed here to provide the key points, but be careful not to simply summarize.
  4. In general, with your writing avoid the following words as much as possible. Overuse may result in point deductions.
    1. Next, Now, Another. Especially avoid these as the start of a section.
    2. Thing, things, it. Define your subject clearly and avoid these words as often as possible.
    3. Basically, a lot. Both words are overused and unnecessary, work to avoid them.
    4. Discuss, talk about, and look at. You are not having a discussion in your paper. Better terms to describe what you are conducting in your paper are: analyzing, critiquing, studying, investigating, inquiring into, diagnosing, surveying, or summarizing.
    5. Avoid contractions! You may lose points.
