Grading Criteria for Writing Assignments: This is a university level undergraduate course and your writing will be evaluated at this level. In addition to adhering to proper format, style, grammar, and spelling count. Make sure you proofread your work.

Plagiarism: The internet makes it easy to access vast amounts of information quickly. It also makes it easy to plagiarize that information, both accidentally and intentionally.  Just to remind you, plagiarism is the presentation of someone else’s ideas or work as one’s own. An obvious form of plagiarism is intentionally stealing someone else’s words. Using another person’s sentence, phrase, or even a word that a person coined requires students to acknowledge the source of the sentence, phrase, or coined word. To acknowledge the source, students can either use quotation marks or paraphrase the author. In both cases, students must cite the source of the information properly.
