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.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
