Hello, All. Today I am assigning topic. But I am flexible. Write me today if you want to change the topic in some way. The 800-1,000 word papers are term paper style. You do not need footnotes. Just use the phrase “according to” when referring to a source or a quote. For example, according to sportswriter Joe Doe in the April 6, 2020 Sports Illustrated. These will count quite a lot toward your grade—about 25%. It’s a feature. Write it in an easy-to-read controversial style with lots of quotes. You can interview people by phone or email due to social isolation.
Due date. May 8, 2020. This is a drop-dead date as I need to move after selling my house May 11-13 and need projects graded by May 10. Please start research today.
