Grading Policy for PHIL 106: Current Moral and Social Issues, Fall 2010 Your grade in this class will be determined based on performance on three paper assignments. The first paper, which is due October 5 , should be around 3-4 pages and is worth 25% of your overall grade. The second paper, which is due November 5 , should be around 4-5 pages and is worth 35% of your overall grade. The final paper, which is due on the day of the final exam , should be around 5-6 pages and is worth 40% of your overall grade. You will receive a list of potential topics approximately two weeks before each paper is due. If you have a specific topic other than those provided that you would like to write on, you may do so, but please run it by me beforehand. The main criteria that will be used to evaluate your papers are: Clarity and relevance . At every point in the paper, is it clear what the author is claiming, and how the points s/he makes and the examples s/he uses are supposed to support these claims? Concision . Is everything in the paper strictly relevant to the claims the author is trying to make? Does the author make his/her points efficiently?

    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.
