Note: The general objective is to write down things that will help you to remember this material four to six weeks from now or whenever you are writing the response to the final prompt(s). However, no prompt should be left blank or empty. Nothing is optional in this Study Guide. If you do not understand what the prompt is asking, please feel free to ask me. As-a-matter-of-fact, this Study Guide is mandatory to stay in the course. You cannot proceed with the two remaining Study Guides or the final essay without having submitted this Study Guide. This Study Guide is worth 1000 points.

Standards for Grading:

One to three sentence responses are not what I consider college level work. Again, the objective with this assignment is to really extensively explore your thoughts. One to three sentences responses are not much of an exploration, yet alone extensive. I automatically give the equivalent of a “D” for this level of work, or 600 points.

One paragraph or bullets containing five to seven sentences, give or take a sentence or two, is commensurate with doing satisfactory to good college level work. I automatically give the equivalent of a “C” or “B” for this level of work, or between 701 and 899 points.

Two to three or more paragraph responses containing five to seven sentences each or 10 or more bullet-points, from my perspective, is indeed doing an extensive exploration of one’s thoughts. This is the objective that all of you should strive to obtain, and this is what takes this activity beyond the realm of the mundane or superficial. This is what I consider outstanding college-level work at the highest level and worthy of the maximum amount of points.
