General Guidelines

  • Unless told otherwise, the audience for all your written assignments is your class.  
  • Use fonts of usual size (e.g., Times New Roman) and margins must be one inch on all sides.  
  • Save paper: print on both sides and unless you have strong reasons for it  DO NOT create a separate cover page.  
  • Only cite fully if it is a text other than those assigned. Use Chicago or MLA.  
  • Many intellectual practices explicitly require you to work within a WORD limit. Do mention the WORD COUNT clearly in the beginning or the end.  
  • Follow the guidelines for turning in your work; they could vary quite a bit.
  • Each 24-hour delay will result in corresponding 10-point deduction.
