Note the author, the title, where you found it (even if it is “Course Blackboard site for CIT 202 at Sacred Heart University, Spring 2020” and other relevant data.] GRADING: Students will be evaluated on their attention to directions, focus on the CIT 202 readings as their central topic, demonstrated effort, quality and clarity of their thesis statement, use of extensive textual evidence to support the thesis, development and explanation of content, formatting guidelines (see the syllabus), and the organization, clarity, editing, and quality of writing. SPECIAL GUIDANCE ON PAPER LENGTH FOR SPRING 2020 The original plan for the final essay was a 5-7 page paper with very strict rules about losing points if it was too short. Longer writing forces deeper thinking and greater attention to the course readings. With that said, everyone’s situation with “remote learning and writing” is a little bit different. Dr. Gillespie wants you to spend some time with the texts at the end of our class, but I don’t want you to be burnt out on work. As a result, I have shortened the length requirement to 3-4 pages MINIMUM. There is no maximum page limit for this essay. Maybe you have decided to request pass/fail for this course or perhaps you want to put some more energy into another class. Dr. Gillespie empowers you to make the choice that is best for you right now. I want to be clear about how your demonstrated effort will impact your grade. Students who desire a B+ or higher as a grade on this essay will need to reach somewhere onto page four and avoid repetition of material. If you are unable to reach page four, that means there is a problem with your thesis statement, a problem with your analysis of evidence from the text, and a lack of sufficient citations. You can always add more references and explanation of the text. Some folks might just want to get things done as quickly as possible. You can earn a C on this assignment by writing two and half good pages (so you end on page 3). Make sure that you have a clear thesis statement with two texts, include three citations per paragraph, and make sure you have an introduction and conclusion. That’s the bare minimum that is required of you. WARNING ABOUT THE DUE-DATE: Late papers cannot be accepted; this is the final for the course and grades are due to the registrar. If Dr. Gillespie does not receive your essay by Friday, May 1st at 11:59 PM (or an e-mail from you that explains that you are choosing not to hand in a final essay and wish to take the 0) you may receive an I for Incomplete. You should upload your essay to Blackboard using the tool provided. If you encounter technical problems, e-mail your essay to gillespiec4@sacredheart.edu..
