Essay #1: DEEPENING THIS GRADING CRITERIA HANDOUT SERVES AS A CHECKLIST. AS YOU REVISE, FREQUENTLY REFER BACK TO THE ASSIGNMENT PROMPT. Grading Criteria~ Content Issues Evidence and Original Thinking: Be sure you’ve chosen appropriate pieces of evidence, as well as illustrated interesting connections between evidences. Every piece of evidence must clearly develop your idea. You are required to use a minimum of two texts as evidence in Essay #1. You must dig deeply for a thorough understanding of your chosen text. When representing texts, be selective, be economical, be accurate, think, and rethink. You must engage with those ideas, then deepen your understanding and ours using your own original thinking. Interact with evidence. Get far beyond a cursory reading. Clichés and truisms are not new ideas and should only be touched upon briefly as a bridge to get somewhere more interesting. (TRUISM – A statement that is obviously true; something we all already know, and do not, therefore need to be convinced of – ie, The advancement of technology has pros and cons. ) Your line of inquiry cannot be a truism, it must be more specific and nuanced than that. Movement: Your investigation should be active and fueled by genuine discovery. Your essay cannot be static or repetitive.

    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.

    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.
