The Writing Process
How should I start? Laws address problems in our society. Start by exploring a topic that interests you and identify a problem. Discuss how the law has attempted to address that problem and evaluate the solutions to see if they are effective. Make suggestions of your own. Let me know what you think.
How will I grade your paper? I will grade based on content, organization, readability, and grammar.
o Content includes your ideas as well as your research.
o Organization includes external transitions (section to section) and internal transitions (paragraph to paragraph and sentence to sentence).
o Readability means how well the paper flows. Avoid wordiness and the passive voice.
o Grammar includes spelling and other grammar errors including subject-verb agreement. Please write your paper in third person. You should always avoid using personal pronouns such as you and I in a researched paper. To state your opinion, you could use a phrase like “the author suggests”.
Content & Organization 50%
Total grade: 100%
How long does this need to be? Your paper should include five to seven pages. APA style also requires a Cover Page, Abstract and a References page with a list of your sources. The cover page, abstract and references page do not count toward the five to seven pages. Your paper should be double spaced and Times New Roman 12-point font with 1 inch margins.
At least five references are required for this paper. I recommend going to the University library and beginning your research there. Speak with a reference librarian to get started. The online library is also a fantastic resource for accessing databases with journal articles on your topic.
