HUM 2633: Paper Guidelines
All students must complete THREE PAPERS in order to fulfill the course requirements. There is a paper due at roughly week seven, another due at roughly week fourteen and a third at the end of the semester. Students can select the religion they want to write about as long as they meet the base requirements for papers and deadlines for paper production that are stated in the course syllabus. Topics for each religion are provided in the folder for each religion. Remember, students who meet certain performance expectations on the first two assignments can earn exemption from the third and final paper. See the syllabus for details.
Once students have chosen the paper topic option they want, they should review the requirements of each assignment carefully. Students must either SELECT ONE of the paper topics provided OR propose an independently designed paper topic to the professor.
DO NOT try to write one essay that encompasses all three topics. Independently designed paper topics MUST be submitted by email for the professor’s pre-approval ([email protected]) and must be pre-approved by the professor at least 48 hours before the paper deadline. Students submitting papers on independently designed topics that are not pre-approved will NOT receive credit for the assignment and will NOT have the option to resubmit. This is not because I am trying to be difficult; I really enjoy working with students on papers of their own design. I insist on pre-approval because I want to make sure you do not take on a topic that cannot be done successfully within the parameters of the assignment (I want you to do well!), and I want to make sure we have established expectations for content such that you are not being asked to do something that is easier or harder than that required of classmates doing the prepared topics.
Speaking of the prepared topics, each paper topic has specific requirements that count for credit. Thus, students are encouraged to read the basic guidelines for papers (syllabus) and their chosen topic (paper topic sheet) very carefully and make sure that their essay contains all the required elements as well as meets the stated general length and citation requirements for papers. Substantive deductions will be taken if requirements are not met. It is your responsibility to check to make sure your paper meets all the requirements and is firing on all cylinders!
Basic Guidelines and Grading Rubric:
Papers must be typed, double spaced, and have 1” margins. Length specifications represent the minimum expected page length. I do not penalize students if they go over that length. However, if you go under I will deduct the percentage of the paper a student did not complete from the final grade. Papers are due on or before the deadline. No late papers will be reviewed unless students have utilized a second chance extension. Papers without second change exemptions that are received after the deadline will automatically receive an F. Students who fail to submit a paper altogether will receive a zero. Thus, it is better to hand in a paper late than not hand in a paper at all. Late papers must be submitted within 48 hours of the stated deadline. After that point, unless a medical emergency or other situation warranting an extension has occurred that can be documented, no credit will be given. All papers that are received on time and meet general paper requirements (length) receive half-credit (50 points). The remainder of the assigned credit will be determined by the degree to which they meet the following grading criteria. All papers are expected to:
a. establish a clear focus through the presence of a topic statement or thesis (10 points)
b. be clear, correct, and coherent in presentation of required central content (10 points)
c. be mechanically sound (be properly formatted and free of spelling/grammatical errors) – (10 points)
d. use the required number of direct citations to substantiate exposition and/or argument (10 points)
e. cite all direct/indirect citations correctly and include a works cited (MLA format) – (10 points)
Confucianism: Paper Topics
1.) Referring to question 17 in your question set, write an essay that discusses the Analects, specifically the text’s likening of truth to a harness in a carriage. Today, given the prevalence of discussions of fake news and alternative facts, some have argued that we have abandoned a commitment to truth. Write an essay that uses the text to show the value of adherence to truth, including a discussion of its practical role in society. Use at least three direct references to the primary text in your essay.
2.) Using at least three passages from the Analects, discuss the value that the text places on respecting and learning from one’s elders; relate this to the respect for parents and grandparents (and other family members) that is commonplace in this region. Discuss why you think this practice (filial piety) was, and remains, so important. What is its value and how does it show a point of connection between Confucian thought and contemporary society?
