Grading Criteria: Argument, Evidence, Expression


Your paper needs to provide an analysis of the material. Do not just describe events or summarize other people’s ideas. Frame your paper around a problematic (a question or issue for analysis). Over the course of the paper, develop a logical, well-substantiated argument in response to the problem you lay out in your introduction. Provide an interpretation that has breadth, coherence, and insight.


You should back up your argument with evidence from authoritative secondary sources and/or primary sources. You must cite every idea you borrow from another author. You must cite every time you quote a primary or a secondary source.


Writing in clear, well-organized prose is crucial to effective rhetoric (the art of making an argument). If a reader cannot understand your meaning, then s/he will certainly not be convinced by your argument. Think about your writing in both global (the paper as a whole and its component paragraphs) and local (the sentences and their elements) terms.
