Contentincludes your ideas as well as your research.
Organizationincludes external transitions (section to section) and internal transitions (paragraph to paragraph and sentence to sentence).
Readabilitymeans how well the paper flows. Avoid wordiness and the passive voice. Don’t start your sentences with “it is” or “there are.”
Grammatical correctnessincludes spelling and other grammar errors including subject-verb agreement. Use of APA style for citation and formatting will be expected.
Point Distribution: Your grade will be reported to you in the number of points you earned. To figure out your letter grade, take the number of points and divide it by 200. For example, 180 points divided by 200 = .9 which is an A.

Requirements

Content, 125 points

Content includes your ideas as well as your research.

Requirements: A title page, an abstract, five full pages in the main body of the paper, and references. The main body should be double spaced and in Times New Roman 12 point font with 1 inch margins.(For more on APA Style, see: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/)

Research: At least seven references are required for this paper. Please use at least one Internet source and one hardcopy source (a book or journal article, for example) in your paper. I recommend going to a library and researching your topic there. Find several books on your topic. You also have access to the Park Virtual Library (located in the Webliography under “other resources”). (Students deployed to remote locations like Korea are not required to use a hardcopy source as they are not able to go to the library. Please note that you are in Korea so I won’t count off points.) References need to be scholarly as opposed to dotcom websites. Wikipedia is not a scholarly source. Try Google Scholar or the Park Virtual Library.

·

Limit quotations: The content needs to be your work and in your words. Please avoid long quotations. If you’re going to quote from a source verbatim, limit that to 10% of the paper. For example, if your paper is five pages long, only 1/2 a page can be quoted material. Longer quotes can be placed in an appendix at the end of the paper. The appendix will not count as part of the body of the paper. ____________________________________________________________

Special Notices:

· Any paper submitted without a references section will receive a grade of zero.

· Do not plagiarize (copying or using the work of others without giving them credit). Use parenthetical references (APA style) within your paper to document all quotations, minor details (for example, numbers and statistics), and opinions that are not yours.

· You may not submit a paper consisting of quotations only–even if they are properly cited. Write your paper in your own words. Use quotes sparingly (no more than 10% of your total paper).

· Work must be original. You cannot submit a paper that has been graded in another class at Park University.

Organization, 25 points

Organization includes external transitions (section to section) and internal transitions (paragraph to paragraph and sentence to sentence).

Readability, 25 points

Readability means how well the paper flows. Avoid passive voice/verbs and excessive wordiness. In particular, avoid passive phrases such as “it is” or “there are.” Diction should be at college level.

Grammatical Correctness, 25 points

Grammatical correctness includes spelling errors, grammatical errors including subject-verb agreement and misuse of or lack of punctuation, and adherence to APA style in citation formatting.

· For help, try: http://www.methodist.edu/english/dd_index.htm andhttps://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/

· Is your paper compliant with APA style in the references section and also in the parenthetical references? See: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/

· No personal pronouns (I, we, me, my, us) should be used. To express personal opinion, try “the author suggests” instead of I or my. Instead of us or we, try “society.”

Late policy: If work is due at midnight, then 12:01 is late. Late work will receive no higher than a C for 1 day late, no higher than 50% for 2 days late, and a 0 for anything after 2 days.

Guidelines and Tips:

· After you write your paper, read each word out loud. You will find most of your errors.

· Don’t forget Park’s writing lab as a resource. Be sure to use the library’s virtual research help service.

· Edit your finished draft at least twice (once for organization and once for grammar mistakes).

· What is APA style? For writing tips and information on the APA style, try the Writing Resources category in the Webliography orhttps://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/

· Wikipedia is not a reliable resource and cannot be quoted or used as a source in any Business Law papers. Why? Basically, anyone can add to Wikipedia. That makes it unreliable. To get around this, you can go to sources cited by authors in Wikipedia, check to see if the material cited is there, and cite the original source.

· When and how do I turn in this paper? The paper is due by midnight of the Sunday of Week 6 in the Central Time Zone. Turn in the paper to the dropbox via an attachment in Rich Text Format or as a Word document. Please check your paper for viruses before you send it. Note: If the dropbox isn’t working, email me with your paper. Keep electronic file copies of all materials submitted until you receive your grade in this class. E-mail is not 100% reliable. You might want to send a copy of your assignments to your work e-mail address. Without documentation that you sent your paper on time, you won’t receive credit for your work.

· Can the main body of the paper be longer than five pages? Yes, it can be up to seven pages, but it must be five full pages.

Special Attention Please:

· Your paper must be original work—not work already submitted in another class. Doing so will result in a grade of 0 for the paper. You have to do a new paper on a new topic in this class.

· Do not plagiarize (copying or using the work of others without giving them credit). Use parenthetical references (APA style) within your paper to document all quotations, minor details (for example, statistics), and opinions that are not yours. However, do not document your own opinions. In the past, several students have copied their entire papers from the Internet. These students received a 0 on the assignment and were reported to the administration.

· Any paper submitted without a reference section will receive a grade of zero.
