FRIDAY MARCH 13NOW DUE Friday April 3 (you will have an opportunity to revise your first draft later in the semester).
HERE ARE THE THREE REQUIRED RESEARCH SOURCES FOR THE ASSIGNMENT:
A) Who were the first Americans? (National Geographic, Dec 2000)
B) Ancient Genome Sequences Settle First Americans Debate (Discover Magazine, Jan 2015)

You will have an opportunity to complete and revise your first draft later in the semester. I will use this rubric to grade the final draft:
Key to grading marks on research assignment:
1a, 1b, 1c refers to the three articles needed to complete the assignment (step 1)
2 refers to the development and consistent use of the thesis provided in assignment step 2
3 refers to the use of the correct title and the development of an organized essay (step 3)
4 refers to the development of a logical argument and use of quotes from the articles to support it (step 4)
5 refers to the use of APA style citation (both in-text on on the references page -- step 5)
Where I have assessed that these steps were either only partially followed or not followed at all, you will see the following marks, followed by the step number (1-5):
Finally, the last step was to proofread and edit the paper and send the final copy to me in PDF format. Grammar, spelling, spacing, font, etc. are graded in this last part of the assessment.
Underlining and question marks are general indicators that I have noted and/or questioned a point you have made in the paper. Please feel free to email or stop in my office hours if you have questions.
Thank you. - Prof Reymers
