Criteria for Grading Paper Two

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 Two:

Your paper should NOT be "instructive".  That is, if you are writing about the role that the Internet plays in identity theft, you should NOT instruct the readers what they should do to protect themselves from phishing.

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