Illinois State University Aristotle Constitution of Carthage Discussion

Question Description

Hello! I am providing 9 sources for you to choose! I need you to choose 1 out of the 9 to write a 250-350 word responce to the question. Here are the requirements:

To pass, students must

  1. Write in clear, polished, organized sentences and paragraphs. Single typos or small grammatical errors will not cause you to fail. Persistent errors that make your writing difficult to understand will. Writing should be organized into paragraphs that have a clear topical focus and contribute to the response’s broader argument. This is tough to do in a 1-page format but is still necessary. DO NOT just write one long, stream-of-consciousness paragraph. Doing so WILL result in a failing grade.
  2. Offer a clear answer to the question prompt. Note that “clear” does not mean extreme or lacking nuance.
  3. Engage explicitly with the primary source. I don’t need to know everything you know about the source. I do want to see you draw specific details from it, either as direct quotations or as paraphrases. Because you will be dealing with only one source and it lacks pagination, a simple, parenthetical citation– “Blah blah blah (Code of Hammurabi).” –will suffice. You are permitted to use additional outside sources only with my prior approval. Don’t make this more complicated than it needs to be!

To receive a high pass, students will

  1. Fulfill all of the requirements to pass the response.
  2. Show excellent command of written communication. Few to no typos or grammatical errors. Concise, well-organized sentences without circumlocution (writing around the idea), fluff, or confusing structure. Flowing, eloquent prose.
  3. Provide a creative or novel answer to the prompt. There is no single correct answer but some will show exceptional levels of sophistication and nuance. These will earn a high pass.
  4. Critical engagement and close-reading of the primary source. To receive a high-pass, students will go beyond superficial analysis and engage closely with the text. Additionally, students who receive a high pass will have shown careful engagement with the text and its context.
