1 Anthropology 3AC – Writing / Style Guide [Fall 2009] Suggestions for Approaching Assignments Adopted from http://newhum.com/for_students/tutorama/02_responding_to_the_assignment.html Develop a position and plan an outline; i.e. Think about what you want to argue (not the same as what you want to say or whether or not you liked a particular author or not), think about how you might support your argument, and write it out as an outline. Is the position or argument in your outline analytical or descriptive? (Aim for analytical, see more below.) Make a list of key concepts you want to cover. Make a list of passages in class texts where each concept you want to cover is addressed; i.e. select passages in critical course texts that help support your position or which you are critiquing. Once you have a draft, read it over and check to see if your position changes as your paper progresses; i.e. are you consistent, does your paper actually address what you want to argue? Look for gaps in your reasoning (and fix them). Proofread your paper for spelling and grammar errors before turning it in and before the hallway printer becomes clogged with all your other Anthro 3 classmates trying to put the final touches on their paper just before the due date.
