This must be your writing. No cutting and pasting from the internet or any other source. No quotes other than statistics are allowed.

ANY violation of these procedures will result in a very dramatic reduction in grade.
You are graded on Organization, Content, and Clarity. Each category will receive either good, average, or weak. This is a highly structured argumentative essay.

Organization

Organization means the presence of a thesis statement, and four labeled discussion points. Each discussion point must relate directly to the thesis statement.

APA format is followed.

Negatives: thesis statement and/or four discussion points are not labeled or are missing, discussion points do not relate to thesis statement.

Good has all of the positives and no negatives, average is missing one positive or has a negative, all else is weak.

Content

Content includes research on the topic chosen. This is an economics course so an intelligent discourse using quantitative data is expected. Given your thesis statement, certain issues are expected to be discussed and, if missing, will lower your grade.

Negatives: misinformation or confusion as to how Social Security works, lack of economic or other data, missing costs or negatives of proposal, material that does not relate to the thesis statement.

Good has all of the positives and no negatives, average is missing one positive or has a negative, all else is weak.

Clarity

Clarity means that I can read it, understand it, and it clearly relates to the paragraph topic. This is from a point of view as an outside reader, not yours.

Negatives: lack of paragraphing, poor paragraph structure, contradictory statements, awkward phrasing, unreadable or poorly written sentences, poor grammar, spelling, etc.

Good has all of the positives and no negatives, average is missing one positive or has a negative, all else is weak.

Note: also considered is the frequency of each problem.”
