1.Be 1,000-1,025 words (not including citation summary , name, title) and posted into Submissions (Must be in Word format) by November 9. Late submissions are penalized (one letter grade for each day late).
2.Describe present situation briefly, and the future (what you expect/want/hope to happen). The best papers will be heavily weighted toward your opinion. The most important factor is that you have a view and support it. Nobody has the absolute correct answer so no view is incorrect (it is okay and encouraged to have a view different from the one you might think I have).
3.Do your own work. Do not add significant quotations and/or citations. I am not requiring a bibliography. Rather, I prefer a list of sources that you utilized; recent articles in business/finance periodicals are a good area to focus. Each paper runs through TurnItIn technology so plagiarism is easily detected.
4.Be grammatically correct and spell checked. Please utilize the DePaul Writing Center for help. Typos and grammar errors make papers hard to read and usually receive a C or worse grade. I highly recommend proofreading your paper aloud; this exercise catches typos, poor grammar, nonsensical sentences.
5.You will see a rubric visible in D2L reflecting exactly how I score the assignment.
6.Be readable, interesting, based in fact, and have a well-formed and substantiated opinion. Have fun; be imaginative.
7.Hint. The best submissions are those where the first draft is 1500 words long. Then, the writer reads through and eliminates all of the in my opinion, I believe, I think and other unnecessary filler words and expressions. Then, one edits the paper into the tight range of words. The whole idea of the tight range of 1,000-1,025 words is to make the writer pick the words more carefully. See quotation below.
