Does the paper address all of the required elements of the assignment? Have you included a bibliography with full citations?

Posted: March 24th, 2022

The evaluation Op-Ed/Blog Post/Public Essay is divided into three, separate sections: Comprehension and Analysis, Clarity of Communication, and Organization/Grammar. I have included guiding questions, expectations, and tips below. Please read the specific instructions and evaluation metrics carefully.
(1) Comprehension and Analysis (4 points): Does the response essay demonstrate an understanding of the relevant concepts and theoretical frameworks from our unit on “Violent Environments” (Weeks 5-10)? Does the response essay effectively apply the theories and concepts from the course to make a cohesive argument? Does the essay incorporate at least two sources from class?
(2) Clarity of Communication (4 points): Is the essay written clearly and in a format that speaks to the intended audience? Does the organization and structure of the essay craft a clear and a cohesive argument? Does the essay communicate environmental research to a broader public?
(3) Organization/Grammar (2 points): Does the organization of your writing make it easy to follow your response? Is the response polished (no distracting or grammatical errors)? Has the essay been proofread? Does the paper address all of the required elements of the assignment? Have you included a bibliography with full citations?
Some specific guidelines:
Please include your name and title at the top
Please upload the Response Essays to Blueline in word .doc or docx.
All quotations, paraphrases, and direct use of another’s ideas (even if not quoted) MUST BE cited. Using parenthetical references (author’s last name, page number) with a bibliography is fine; you do not have to use footnotes or endnotes. Footnotes can be used to present additional ideas, qualifications, or other points that would detract from the flow of the paper. You can choose the style (Chicago, APA, MLA, etc) but the stylemust be consistent.
Do not use Wikipedia, or similar internet sources.
Stamp out sexism. Don’t assume that “man” or “men” refers to human beings generally. For help, you might consult Williams Style: Toward Grace and Clarity or a more specialized guide such as The Handbook of Nonsexist Writing by Miller and Smith. Included in our syllabus is the following resource under the “inclusive language policy”:
PLEASE READ!! The teacher is VERY LIBERAL so write accordingly. I have attached all the readings and ppts below. Make your own thesis about violent environments and theories then write about it using the sources provided. I provided pg numbers to read. If I put in a pdf and didn’t specify page numbers you can use all of it. I added links to other readings as well. YOU DONT NEED TO USE THEM ALL (2 at MINUMUM but more is better)!!! They are there to use if you do need them.
