Mid-Term Assignment Criteria

Here is the arrangement and the schedule of dates for the Mid-Term Essay, two thousand words and revision. The assignment is worth thirty-five percent of the Course grade, of which twenty percent is for the Mid-Term essay and fifteen percent for the subsequent revision.
Eight-week writing track:
  1. Wednesday June 9th: choice of topics posted on the website.
  2. Wednesday June 23rd: mid-term essay due in lecture.
  3. Wednesday July 7th: essay returned with comments & grade.
  4. Wednesday July 21st: revision due in lecture.

  • The mid-term essay is an opportunity to get your ideas, argument and structure down on paper. Your Tutorial leader will mark the important errors which require revision. You are encouraged to bring the draft to Office Hours for additional and thorough-going help.
  • The subsequent revision will be graded according to the improvements made to the mid-term essay from the directions made on your mid-term essay by your Tutorial leader.
