Each essay must be typed, double-spaced, and STAPLED, with 12 point font and 1 inch margins. Your essay should include a title page that includes the title of your essay, your name, discussion section number and date on it.

No e-mailed papers will be accepted unless you have both notified me (your teaching assistant) of your emergency and e-mailed the paper prior to class time.

Plagiarism also occurs when phrases and sentences are patched together to create an essay. Of course, you will be using in your essays a few words or concepts that come from the assigned readings. That is legitimate. What is not legitimate is copying phrases and sentences from sources (whether assigned or not) and using them as if they represented your own writing. You can avoid this by honestly quoting and citing your sources. A rough rule of thumb is that plagiarism occurs if the writing in question could not have been constructed without copying directly (however sporadically) from another source, including other students. The University's policies on plagiarism are severe; any student who plagiarizes could receive an F for the course and have a letter of notification sent to the dean.
