Political Science 101
 The essay should be typewritten, double-spaced and follow proper format for citations and bibliography. It should be based on the same topic and the sources you found for your library assignment. It should about 2000 words in length (about 8 typed pages. Times New Roman, 12 font) and you must provide a word count.

  • All essays must use in text bracketed notes with a full bibliography at the end of the essay indicating sources consulted (APA style -see library website re citing sources). Remember if you use a direct quote you must include the page number when you cite the source.
  • Any portion of your essay using the exact sentences or phrases of an author even if you cite the source without quotation marks is plagiarism, so is cutting and pasting text from websites. The academic calendar identifies it as a form of cheating which may result in penalties. All students are required to keep copies of research notes, rough drafts and a final copy of the essay in a file. If plagiarism is suspected students will not receive a grade on the essay and will be called in for an interview with the instructor and will be required to produce all their notes, drafts etc. To ensure that all students are aware of plagiarism and the consequences of such academic misconduct all students will be required to sign and submit a form after reviewing material on plagiarism.
  • email it.    Essays will be evaluated on BOTH the content, that is, the quality of research and the argument made, and the writing style. Essays based on the course textbooks and class notes are not acceptable.
  • Any student who failed to hand in the first and second assignment on the topic will not be allowed to submit an essay.

FAQs:   Q.    I found a couple of better sources after handing in the first assignment.  Can I drop a couple of my original sources and replace them?
 Yes you can especially if the instructors suggested you were missing some good sources but DO NOT BASE AN ESSAY ON A COUPLE OF SOURCES since  IT WILL BE WEAK AND THIN ON EVIDENCE and get a poor grade.
   I discovered a lot about my topic and would like to change my thesis a bit in the essay. Is that OK?

  1. Yes it is, since that is part of learning. Just be sure your arguments and evidence provide support for it.

   Can I change topic and write on a different one from the library assignment?
 No you cannot. It would add a lot of time to your work and could be seen as symptom of plagiarism.
                                  How the Essay is Graded
 Essays will be graded out of 20 according to the following criteria

  • Does the essay address the topic or issue?
  • Is there a central thesis?

is it clearly stated?
is it coherent i.e. does it make sense?

  • Is the thesis supported by arguments?

are there several arguments?
are they well-reasoned, clearly stated and make sense?

  • Are the arguments supported by evidence?

is the evidence adequate to support the thesis?
is it relevant?
is it credible?

  • Are there important counter-arguments that you have mentioned

and refuted?
 Is the essay well written, with no spelling, grammar or major style
errors?  (Remember software programs do not catch misused words,
incoherent ideas or bad style. Nothing is a substitute for carefully
proof-reading an essay.)
