Criteria for Grading Paper One

You should write your paper using a word processing program.  This way you can correct spelling and grammar, and count the words prior to submitting.  Spelling and grammar count!

Here are the criteria that I will use for evaluating Paper One:

Your paper should NOT be "instructive".  That is, if you are writing about how you have a business selling items on eBay, you should NOT instruct the readers on how they could set up their own businesses on eBay.

Final reminder - several students will make this mistake!!!  The minimum acceptable length is 2000 'original' words.  Direct quotes from other sources are not counted in determining the "word-count" length of your paper.
