Short Paper Assignment
- Due date: Sunday, March 4nd (at the latest) (just before spring break)
- Send attached to email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- 10% of grade.
- 4-6 pages
- Synopsize and critically analyzing an assigned article (preferably focusing on one or two dimensions of the article). You certainly can refer to other of our readings if they are relevant.
- I prefer that you do your paper on some article other than the one you presented for class, but you may do it on that article, assuming you have something to say about it.
- I definitely do not want these to be simply a rehash of your class presentations. Their goal was mainly to explain the material to the class and that is not the goal of this paper. The synopsis of the article should be a springboard for something you want to say about the ideas in it.
- I'm happy if you want to run by ideas or topics by me, but I won't require it.
