Case Assignment- ANT-250-I (****** 7 Pages + APA Format with References *****)
FIRST THINGS FIRST: Paper Expectations for this Course
I want everyone to succeed in this course and am going to provide you with step-by-step instructions to help you achieve the highest possible grade on your paper.
One of the major issues that I have come across is receiving papers from students that don’t meet the criteria for full points to be awarded. The major reason for this is failure to adequately address all of the stated objectives to the appropriate degree of a given assignment.
A great way to overcome this problem is to begin your paper by examining the “weight” of each part of your paper. In each assignment, look to see how points are distributed AND what areas must be covered in your paper.
I require the use of headings and sub-headings for your paper to organize the content. This helps to determine if all the criteria have been addressed and demonstrates the flow and organization of the content. Generally, APA Levels 1 and 3 are sufficient.
For example: Let us assume that you are given instructions to write a 2 page paper. Imagine that there are 4 areas (or objectives or instructions), each worth 25% of your papers overall grade. You should make certain that your paper covers each topic equally. Here is an example:
Cover Page (cover pages are required for ALL written academic work)
Objective/instruction 1 (1/2 page)
Objective/instruction 2 (1/2 page)
Objective/instruction 3 (1/2 page)
Objective/instruction 4 (1/2 page)
References and Plagiarism
Please be certain that ALL submitted papers include a reference sheet. Remember that all sources used in the creation of your paper must be cited in your paper. Whenever you use the work of another, be it directly (taking actual direct quote from their work) or indirectly (putting their ideas into your own words), you need to cite in the text where you used their work. Guidelines for the citation of references can be found in the TUI style sheet which can be found on the syllabus page of your course CD-ROM.
And now…for your first case assignment:
Case Assignment- ANT-250-I
For this first case assignment, I want you to describe, in a 2 to 3 page paper—the process by which the skin renews itself. Specifically, I want you to discuss:
1. How skin cells are formed
2. Stages of skin cell maturation (that is, how they “grow”);
3. How skin cells die.
Your SLP and your case assignments are considered scholarly works. Your final work should include a MINIMUM of 10 peer reviewed (scholarly) sources. This does not mean that you must place 10 peer reviewed sources in each module of your Case/SLP. I anticipate that the nature of the questions which must be answered in this project will result in the accumulation of more than 10 references, but 10 is the minimum number. This means by the end of module 5, I should be able to go back and count AT A MINIMUM a total of 10 scholarly-peer reviewed publications in all of your submitted papers
