Assignments for ENEC 311, Grub Street
There are four writing assignments in this course, and you must complete
all of them in order to pass this course. I'm not, however, going to grade
all of them. Rather, I will mark them as received. Toward the end of the
semester, you will choose one of these assignments and use it at the basis
of a paper of 7-10 pages that will be graded.
The due dates are listed below; specific assignments will be available
as we get close to the dates. .
Assignment #1 (due September 20)>>
Assignment #2 (due October 4)>>
Assignment #3 (due November 3)>>
Assignment #4 (Due December 1)
Pleas for extensions will be heard but must be made at
least 24 hours before the assignment is due.
|Guidelines for all papers
Here are some guidelines to follow for papers in this class
(and they'll probably serve you well in just about any class you
take at UVa). Failure to follow these guidelines will negatively
affect your grade.
•Give your paper a title, one that accurately reflects the
work that follows;
•Proofread for grammar, syntax, spelling, logic, etc. Check
that all proper names of authors, characters, places, etc. are correctly
• Cite any outside sources--texts, reference books, a website,
your roommate--that you consulted in the course of your thinking
•Number your pages, either by hand or, preferably, with
the auto-pagination function of your word processor (if you don't
know how to do this, you should learn! I'll be glad to provide tutorials
in how to do this in Microsoft Word);
•Staple your paper; paperclips are hazardous, since they fall
off, and folding the upper left corner to hold the paper together
is not acceptable.
