Fourth Step: Final Paper
1) Final: A 4-5 page Paper building on the outline from midterm
â€¢ I expect you to â€œgrowâ€ from the midterm to the final version, improving and revising heavily to come up with a finished product that shows your knowledge by the end of the course. I donâ€™t expect you to be a strong political science student at midterm, but do expect you to be more well-versed and knowledgeable on the subject by final week vs. Week 1
â€¢ Questions to ask yourself:
o Have I done additional research and re-drafting since the midterm?
o Did I try to incorporate the instructorâ€™s feedback from midterm version into final version?
o Did I proofread carefully so that the final version is clean â€“ limiting grammatical and spelling errors?
o 4-5 page requirement does not include bibliography, e.g. it should be longer than 4-5 pages after you include sources
â€¢ 12 point font, Times New Roman, double spaced
â€¢ APA/MLA/APSA format required.
â€¢ At least 6 researched sources presented in bibliographical format
â€¢ Do not plagiarize, please cite properly. Plagiarism can result in receiving a zero on the assignment and instructor reporting the student to the College for violation of Academic Integrity
