The Write Experience papers do not have a page length or word count
requirement. Write a substantial response that fully addresses the assignment
prompt. Use reputable sources for support. These are relatively
short papers. I would say you should be able to adequately answer the assignment
in two double spaced pages but feel free to write as much as you believe is
Here are the assignments and their due dates:
Week 2: Write Experience Paper #1 Due 7/12/15 by 11:59 pm EST
As we become more aware of our impact on the environment, citizens and
legislators are faced with decisions which impact local, state, and national
economies. For example, government restrictions on construction due to effects
on endangered species or wetland areas can affect the employment levels of a
community. If you were a citizen or government official facing a decision
between environmental protection and local economics, what factors would affect
your decision-making process?
In a well-developed essay, discuss the factors which might affect the
decision-making process when either the environment or local economics are at
stake. Include facts and examples to support your discussion.
Develop a response that includes examples and evidence to support your ideas,
and which clearly communicates the required message to your audience. Organize
your response in a clear and logical manner as appropriate for the genre of
writing. Use well-structured sentences, audience-appropriate language, and
correct conventions of standard American English.
