Deductions will be made for overly long papers.
Be sure to put your name, title of the assignment and the date at the top of your paper or on a separate cover sheet.
You may discuss the questions and your answers with other students. However your written answers must be your own. Do not use another person’s written words without properly citing the source. The Turnitin software will check for plagiarism and is required by CPS.
Please start your assignment file name with your first initial and last name. For example, jnicholsDraftFinalProject.doc or jnicholsFinalProject.doc.
Be sure to use applicable key terms and concepts from the course and textbook in your answers. Answers should be approximately 1 page long but can vary depending on the specific question. Do not repeat the question in your paper. You must use headings and label your answers Part A, B, etc. so I know which part of the question you are answering. For example,
Please properly cite your sources as required in the assignment and include a bibliography of at least three sources for this paper. You need to give the specific web page on a web site not just the general site web address. For example use, http://www.dupontlegalmodel.com/diversity/ not www.dupont.com.
