Writing Across The Curriculum Assignments
Each chapter in your book has a section at the end called “Questions and Problems”. You are required to do two papers in this course, each of about 2,000 words. To do the papers, which are due at the end of Weeks 7 and 11, you should choose 3-5 of the Questions and Problems, any ones you wish from any chapter which we have covered by the time the paper is due. So for the first, these can come from any chapter we cover in Weeks 1-7. For the second paper, they can be taken from any or more chapters covered in Weeks 1-11. You must write on a minimum of 3 Questions, but it can be a maximum of 5. The paper will be graded based on content, expression and also grammar, spelling and syntax. I will return the papers to you with advice, and you will have a chance to redo the paper to earn a higher grade.
You do not need to repeat the text of the question. Just refer to the chapter and question number. If you repeat the question, the text of the question will NOT count toward the 2,000 words.
