Format and Directions
- Word-processed as Word or Rich Text Format (rtf) files. Do not attach Pages, Google Docs, or PDF files.
- Have one-inch margins all around
- Place a heading in the document at the top left. In the heading, put name, 220, and assignment # on separate lines. The heading does not count in the word length.
- You should proofread and edit these assignments to ensure that you have written at an acceptable college level and have minimized errors.
- Use your own words in answering these questions. They should be based on your reading and understanding of the course readings, but not just copied from them. Again, use your own words, MINIMIZE QUOTES, and do the work by yourself. .
- Do NOT use outside sources such as Wikipedia. Doing so will lead to failure. If you have encountered some of this material in other courses or readings, tell me about it and Iâ€™ll let you know what you can use.
- An adequate answer will run to about 200-300 words.So if you have three questions, your answers would come out to 600-900 words.
