Your reader shouldn’t have to make connections that aren’t explicitly there and shouldn’t be bogged down by awkward, jarring phrasing that doesn’t allow for smooth transition between thoughts/ideas/sentences/paragraphs.

Your first short paper is due this week. Short papers must be at least 2 full pages in length, doubled spaced, written in 12 pt Times New Roman font for possible full credit; you must also include a works referenced/cited page. You may write about anything covered this week (the short papers should always center the week’s materials in which you find the assignment to prove understanding of said week’s materials), however, you may make connections to previous materials. First, content: You must stay on topic in your papers. It is fine to draw from contemporary events, personal life, etc. but this should be limited to 1/4 of your paper at most. The point of these short papers is to prove you understand the materials from the units and if you only spend a fraction of your paper on for example Socrates, then you aren’t really doing this. Also, I am looking for depth in these papers. You should summarize and analyze in a way that makes deep connections. For example, it is not enough to acknowledge Socrates was the wisest human according to the Oracle at Delphi, but you need to also analyze why being aware of one’s ignorance functions as wisdom and to connect this to philosophizing and the crimes Socrates is charged and convicted of.
Second, structure: Most of you need to proofread better in order to check for flow of ideas. Your sentences and paragraphs should seamlessly flow together. Your reader shouldn’t have to make connections that aren’t explicitly there and shouldn’t be bogged down by awkward, jarring phrasing that doesn’t allow for smooth transition between thoughts/ideas/sentences/paragraphs. Additionally, avoid casual language. The theorists in this course shouldn’t be characterized as “crazy” or “stupid.”
Finally, you need cite and directly quote from the unit materials. I should see direct quotations from Plato’s works if you discussed Socrates, from Ciraulo if you discussed mortality, etc.
