· While you may work with other students in a study group on this essay, DO NOT have someone else research and/or write the paper for you. Please do your own work.

· Always include page numbers on all of your papers. Also, be sure to have someone proofread your papers before you submit them to me. Some papers had too many punctuation and grammatical errors.

· Do not use Wikipedia.org, or other encyclopedias or dictionaries as references for this paper. Do not use information from these sources.

· Document all sources you use in your paper. If you do not reference your sources and provide documentation (i.e. parenthetical method of documentation and Works Cited), your paper will receive an automatic “F” (failure).

· The Quality of your writing and the format of your paper both count toward your grade. If I find it hard to read your paper, your grade will be lowered.
