Some important tips about writing academic essays:

Course essays should be formal. Formal essays should:

· Avoid a conversational tone

· Avoid the use of personal pronouns referring to the writer or reader of the essay (I, me, you, your, us, we, our)

· Avoid contractions (shouldn’t, couldn’t, wouldn’t, can’t, won’t, etc.) – Simply spell them out.

· Avoid web-based resources for support (Wikipedia, Sparknotes, or similar websites)

· Avoid proofreading errors (be sure to spell check and read through your essay)

Some things to keep in mind about essays:

If you do not meet the minimum word count, you receive an automatic 50% on the essay. The grade can descend from there. Since this course is Gordon Rule, it is important to meet the minimums.
When using any outside material, you must properly quote, paraphrase, summarize, and cite the material. If not, this can be considered plagiarism and result in penalties to your grade, such as a zero for the assignment. See the syllabus for details.
