Grades will be primarily based upon the quality of content and how well you demonstrate an ability to examine your topic. Students will have the liberty to choose any relevant topic (i.e. Coronavirus (COVID-19), drugs, gender, violence, etc) as a subject for their midterm paper. Your task is to distinguish facts and myths within your topic. Students should email professor their midterm topic by Monday, January 18th. Follow the “Midterm Paper Rubric.”
Page requirements: Microsoft Word document, 6-8 pages (double spaced, New Times Roman, 12 point font), include a work cited or bibliography page with at least 4 academic sources formatted in MLA style. All sources must be listed on a separate work cited or bibliography page and attached to the back of your paper. The work cited or bibliography page does not count toward the 6-8 page requirements. Papers less than 6 complete pages WILL NOT be accepted.
