What is Superfund? If a remedy (that is, a proposed cleanup project) leaves hazardous materials on a site, what standard must it meet? Is Superfund cleanup an issue for which we should bend environmental regulations to achieve its goals? Support your opinions with facts and include actual Superfund site examples.

Cite all sources used in APA style including both in-text citations and a reference list at the end of the essay. A fully developed response should go beyond your textbook and required readings (although you may include them), have multiple citations from valid sources (e.g., no wiki-anything) and should avoid direct quotes from others. Present this essay using your own words to demonstrate your understanding and synthesis of readings on this topic. You must submit your essay as an attachment. The essay should be 2-3 pages and supported by at least two scholarly references.

This course uses automatic plagiarism checking software (Turnitin). You may submit your work up to 3 times prior to the deadline to check your similarity scores (aim for 10% similarity or less). It takes roughly 15 minutes for the system to process your submission and show the score.

University Plagiarism Policy: The University System supports and promotes academic honesty and personal integrity. Any form of academic dishonesty has no place in higher education. The University System does not tolerate dishonest efforts by its students. Students who are guilty of academic dishonesty can expect to be penalized. Any student who knowingly assists another student in dishonest behavior is equally responsible. An additional violation of the standards of academic honesty within a course may result in dismissal from the University System.

Running head: BRIEF TITLE OF PAPER 1

4

Repeat Title Here

Begin text under the title and go right into the paper. Indent paragraphs. Use section titles or numbers to differentiate between multiple questions; especially on the mid-term and final assessment. Review APA style on formatting first level headings (e.g., center bold, title case capitalization – this does not mean all caps), second level headings (e.g., flush left, bold, title case capitalization), etc.

There is no minimum or maximum writing requirement. Directions usually state “thoroughly explain or discuss”. This equates to roughly 1.5 – 2 pages per assignment. There is no penalty for writing more than 2 pages. However, assignments less than 1.5 pages tend to have points deducted for not being sufficiently detailed, though in part this depends on student writing style. Also, remember to cite in APA format within the text as well as the reference page that follows.

BRIEF TITLE OF PAPER 2

Do not change this font. It is to be Times Roman Numeral 12 throughout the paper and including references. .
