Individual Written Assignments:
Individual Writing Assignment #1 has a Mandatory Video Submission – Your response must be in a video (do not submit a voice recording, that is not a video submission format) submission format. What does that mean, you need to record your response by showing your face and your voice and submit in the dropbox.
Individual Writing Assignment #2 should have a minimum of five pages. You need to follow APA format (cite the source both in the text as well as on a separate reference page), check thoroughly for grammar and punctuation, and most importantly, make sure you answer the entire question. Avoid “brain dumping” – if there is a specific question on a topic, do not spit out everything you know on the topic; keep it limited to information that answers the question. If the question has multiple parts, make sure you answer each of them. These are based on material we will watch, but they are first and foremost, research-based assignments. This means that you need to look beyond the film, text, and PowerPoints to answer them. Each assignment should include at least 10 sources, which should not include your text. Please consult the rubric for the assignments before starting them, so you have a full understanding on how you will be evaluated.
All citations in the reference list should be cited in the body of your paper (use APA style guidelines).
