ARC 1720 Survey of Architecture History Special Instructor: Phyllis J. Henderson University of Florida | School of Architecture INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE GORDON RULE PAPER ARC 1720 is divided into two sections: Section 1741 is a Gordon Rule section. Section 1746 is not a Gordon Rule section. Please check your registration to make sure you know for which of these two sections you are registered. Section 4108 satisfies 6000 words of the Gordon Rule. To meet the Gordon Rule requirement students will write one paper this semester. The paper will require 6,000 words by the beginning of the 5 th week of the course. The Gordon Rule assignment will be evaluated according to the university Gordon-Rule evaluation rubric: Satisfactory (Y) Unsatisfactory (N) Content Papers exhibit at least some evidence of ideas that respond to the topic with complexity, critically evaluating and synthesizing sources, and provide at least an adequate discussion with basic understanding of sources. Papers either include a central idea(s) that is unclear or off- topic or provide only minimal or inadequate discussion of ideas. Papers may also lack sufficient or appropriate sources. Organization and coherence Documents and paragraphs exhibit at least some identifiable structure for topics, including a clear thesis statement but may require readers to work to follow progression of ideas. Documents and paragraphs lack clearly identifiable organization, may lack any coherent sense of logic in associating and organizing ideas, and may also lack transitions and coherence to guide the reader. Argument and support Documents use persuasive and confident presentation of ideas, strongly supported with evidence. At the weak end of the Satisfactory range, documents may provide only generalized discussion of ideas or may provide adequate discussion but rely on weak support for arguments. Documents make only weak generalizations, providing little or no support, as in summaries or narratives that fail to provide critical analysis.

ARC 1720 Survey of Architecture History Special Instructor: Phyllis J. Henderson University of Florida | School of Architecture Style Documents use a writing style with word choice appropriate to the context, genre, and discipline. Sentences should display complexity and logical sentence structure. At a minimum, documents will display a less precise use of vocabulary and an uneven use of sentence structure or a writing style that occasionally veers away from word choice or tone appropriate to the context, genre, and discipline. Documents rely on word usage that is inappropriate for the context, genre, or discipline. Sentences may be overly long
