Your papers (hard copies) are due at the beginning of class with the Turn It In receipt from Oncourse stapled to the back. I will not accept papers through email. Papers that do not have the correct stapled receipt attached to them on the date the paper is due will be graded down five points per class session. Late papers will similarly be docked five points per class session. If you must miss class, arrange to have the paper posted to Oncourse/Turn It In and delivered to me and/or your AIs before the class period; otherwise it will be considered late.
*Please note that I expect few, if any, grammar or sentence level errors, and they will result in a lowering of your grade. Organization counts most of all. If you are unsure of or have little experience with thesis-first academic writing, I strongly advise you switch to another class.
When graded, each paper will be returned to you with the following chart stapled to the back:
5 points: Understanding the Essay
Sentence Level Clarity/Syntax
MLA Citation Procedures
Paper grades will
Grading System for Rhetorical Analyses
7 points: Essay Organization
Introduction to the writer, the essay, and its main point
Clear Thesis Statement
Clear Sentence and Paragraph Transitions
Topic Sentences at the beginning of each Paragraph
Conclusion summing up your position on the strengths and/or weaknesses of the writer’s analysis/argument
5 points: Understanding the Essay
What the essay is about and why the writer wrote it
Why the writer makes the points she makes when she makes them and how they further the argument/analysis
Paper addresses not just what the essays says, but how the author says it. In other words, how do the examples you single out contribute to the analysis as a whole?
5 points: Sentence Level Clarity/Syntax
Sentences that are not awkward or difficult to follow
Sentences are logical, clear, easy to follow, and vary between simple and compound/compound/complex structure (i.e. sentences are not a series of simple subject-verb constructed clauses one after the other only—the rhythm of your sentences)
Sentences are not loaded with unnecessary phrases
Prose should be free of fragments, run-ons, and other grammar errors
Quotes should be introduced effectively and match the rhythm of their surrounding sentence
There should be no spelling errors
3 points: MLA Citation Procedures
In-text parenthetical citation: quotations and parentheses in the right places with necessary information and correct punctuation. Effective introduction of all quotations
A general 3 to 1 rule—for each quotation you use, expect to spend at least three sentences explaining why it’s in your paper and how it contributes to the overall argument/analysis.
If you don’t own a copy of the MLA Guide you may access this information via the IU library homepage’s link: http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/pamphlets/mla_style.shtml. I have also included an MLA “cheat-sheet” in your Course Reader and on the course website under “Scholar’s Links.” There is no need for a Works Cited page on these assignments, but you will lose points if you cite within the text incorrectly.
