Here are the guidelines for the paper, which is a review of a scholarly article.

  1. Find a scholarly article that is 10+ pages long.
    1. Do NOT look it up through Google or some other general search engine.
    2. Go to the Tech home page.
    3. Click on the Library link.
    4. Click on the Indexes & Databases link.
    5. Click on the JSTOR or the MLA International Bibliography. (Not the MLA Directory of Journals).
    6. If you are off campus, log in with your student id and the password (the default password is changeme).
    7. Look up an article on one of the works that we are reading this quarter.
  2. Download the article.  You need to send it to me along with your paper.
  3. Read the article.
  4. Write a review.
    1. It should be 2+ pages long (not 1 1/2).
    2. About two thirds of the review should be summary of what the article says.
    3. The last third should be your response.
    4. Write the bibliographical information for the article in good MLA form.  For online sources, display the stable URL in your Bibliography.
  5. Submit the REVIEW AND THE ARTICLE (or a link to it if it's available online) to me.  In face-to-face classes, I want a paper copy of your assignments AND an electronic copy submitted through Moodle to TurnItIn.  In online classes, submit your paper through Moodle to TurnItIn.  If you have trouble uploading it Moodle, you may email it to me at  You may also bring a paper copy by my office.  You are still responsible for turning in the assignment by the due date, so plan ahead.
