By Sunday evening, November 30, 2014, seminar participants should send Prof. Pinsker a first draft of their critical essay assignment by email attachment. The minimum requirement for this “draft” is one-page, but students should try their best to send out a full draft of the 7-10 page critical essay assignment. If you are submitting only a partial draft of one or two pages, try to send the opening of the essay, showing your thesis statement and introduction.
When preparing your draft, make sure to consult the following carefully:
1) The instructions for the Critical Essay
2) Handouts at the Writing Resources tab
3) The section on “Academic Writing” from Diana Hacker’s and Nancy Sommers’ A Writer’s Reference (Seventh Edition), pp. 67-108.
