Writing Rubric: Your papers will be graded according to the following rubric: Technical Matters (25%): Evidence of proofreading; correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation; appropriate formatting; appropriate citations Content (50%): Addressing the necessary questions; giving examples; demonstrating that the material has been read, analyzed, and subjected to critical thinking; successful construction of argument Writing Style (25%): Clarity of writing; ease of transitions; “readability” Here are some rules concerning papers that will have an impact on your performance in the categories of “technical matters” and “writing style.” These might be different from the writing feedback you have received in other classes. However, these are the standards in this class. • • • • • • • • • • Times New Roman, size 12, 1-inch margins Do not split infinitives by inserting an adjective or particle between the “to” and verbal form in the infinitive construction. Examples: to boldly go where no man has gone before; to not eat; to happily say. Correct forms would be: to go boldly; not to eat; to say happily. Avoid passive voice. Examples: It has been said; this has been known to be; this was done; etc. In other words, if your sentence employs the verbal construction of “to be” plus a passive participle, see if you can rewrite it in active voice. Examples: Scholars say; we know; they did. Do not end a sentence with a preposition. Examples: the community that he was a part of; the city she wanted to go to; the building she was in; something he didn’t know about. Do not use the word “impactful.” It is an annoying word. If you are uncertain about the proper use of commas vs. semicolons, I am happy to help. Let me know. Avoid “throw away” words like “just,” “really,” or “very.” They contribute nothing to your writing. Avoid colloquialisms, text-speak, and emoticons. If you would not say something out loud in a formal setting, do not write it. The past tense of the verb “to lead” is “led.” Please use the Oxford comma. I don’t care what the Europeans say. These are rules for use in writing your papers. Note, however, that in-class discussion has a more informal tone, so don’t be afraid. I do not require a specific citation format (MLA, APA, etc.) for your papers; however, I require that each student choose one and stick to it, and parenthetical documentation is not permitted. Some of you might not have had the opportunity to learn and use a citation format in the humanities; the Chicago Manual of Style is universally recognized and available online: ...

Question One
What are some of the female characters in the Torah that stand out for you? Why?
Torah refers to the first five books in the Hebrew Bible, which in most cases are known
as Chameesha Choomshey Torah and whose main focus is on the laws that guided the Israelites.
In the books, women have taken different positions and stances which have, in a way, depicted
them as following the status quo or deviating from the status quo. The nature of women in most
cases is either as a result of the position they were in or the surrounding environment that in one
way or another influenced their behavior and approach. Female characters in the Torah have
been depicted in different ways, which can only be used in a singular context.
Women like Eve are depicted as weak, and naive since the ser...
