The University of Toronto Mississauga Library staff has compiled
several links on researching and writing term papers. Look them up:
The Book Review or Article Critique
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:
(deadline, January 29)
Term Paper (deadline, April 5, 5 PM)
There will be a drop-off box in front of Room Davis 3284.
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.
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 that will cover the Easter week-end, and
10% per day afterwards. Assignments submitted after 5PM on Thursday April 11
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.
