Why are seasonal temperature differences greater in the high latitudes than in the tropics?
The assignment rubric:
10/10 points will be assigned to a “spot on” response, i.e. one that is detailed yet succinct, well written, spelling and grammar are correct (important for whatever you write), and including appropriate examples
9-8/10 points will be assigned to a “solid” response that lacks some amount of necessary detail, spelling and grammar are correct, could be better of more fully exemplified
7/10 points will be assigned to an “average” response that is lacking detail, spelling and grammar are a bit wonky, and includes too few relevant examples
6/10 points will be assigned to a largely “off-topic” response (i.e. you “missed the boat”), does not meet college-level spelling and grammar expectations (as in English 1), and lacks relevant examples
5/10 or less points will be assigned to any response that does not meet the minimum requirements for the 6/10-point award criteria
Please be mindful that my scoring of a prose assignment response (i.e. not an objective response such as the selection of choice a, b, c, d, e or T/F) involves the difficult task of thoughtfully and carefully reading what you write, including “between the lines” and then applying uniformly across all assignment submissions the most objective criteria possible so that all assignments can be said to have been fairly and equitably scored.
