General Guidelines


The University of Toronto Mississauga Library staff has compiled  several links on researching and writing term papers. Look them up:
Writing
The Book Review or Article Critique
Advice on Academic Writing

You are asked to write a 15 page essay on a topic of your choice dealing with topics covered in this course. Your choice of topic must be approved by the instructor before turning in your review essay proposal.

Here are the detailed guidelines for the relevant step:

Proposal (deadline, September 29)

Term Paper (deadline, December 4, 5 PM)

There will be a drop-off box in front of Room Davis 3283.

Penalties for lateness

Failure to turn in your proposal at the beginning of class will result in a penalty of 1 point (out of 5). Failure to turn in your proposal immediately once the class has ended will result in a grade of 0.

Late Assignment (Term Paper) Policy
The deadline for your term paper is 5PM on the last day of class for the semester. Late assignments will be subject to an immediate late penalty of 25% of the total marks for the assignment and 10% per day afterwards. Assignments submitted after 5PM on Tuesday December 9 will be assigned a grade of zero. No exception will be made to this policy for medical (excluding pre-existing conditions and treatments) or other reasons (such as hardware failure, sickness or death of a relative, car problems, job interviews, etc.). You have all semester to write your term paper and should prepare for the unexpected.
