8. The concluding paragraph should sum up the book. Here, include a few sentences about your overall perception of the book. Did you like the book? Why or why not? (This is also included in question 10.) 9. Papers should be written in your own words. Avoid quotations as much as possible. Plagiarism is unacceptable . (Plagiarism is the stealing and use of the ideas or writings of another as one's own. "Another" includes books, articles, and other sources, including other individuals.) 10. Papers should be straightforward and direct in language. Do not use words unless you are sure of
their meanings. Avoid slang, unnecessary words, contractions (don’t, can’t, won’t etc…), and run-on sentences. Watch capitalization. I will subtract points for all of the above. 11. Papers should be free of grammatical errors and misspelled words. Use SpellCheck! 12. Have a friend or relative proofread your work. I do! He/She will find mistakes that you overlook. 13. Probably the best way to prepare your Book Review is to download/print these instructions and the questions. As you read the book, write out the answers to the questions as you come across them. Then use the answers to construct your review. It will make your life a lot easier if you do it this way. 14. The Review is due as soon as you finish. The “due date” listed on Blackboard is the last
possible time to upload your review. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO UPLOAD YOUR REVIEW. 15. I expect your best effort.
