HERE ARE THE THREE REQUIRED RESEARCH SOURCES FOR THE ASSIGNMENT:
A) Who were the first Americans? (Parfit, National Geographic, Dec 2000)
B) Ancient Genome Sequences Settle First Americans Debate (Tarlach, Discover Magazine, Jan 2015)
C) The Kennewick Man Finally Freed to Share His Secrets (Preston, Smithsonian, Sept 2014)
Key to grading marks on graded PDF research assignment:
A1i, A1ii, A1iii refers to the three articles needed to complete the assignment (step A1)
A2i, A2ii refers to the two independent research articles needed to complete the assignment (step A2)
B1 refers to the use of the correct title and the development of an organized essay (step B1)
B2 refers to the development and consistent use of the thesis provided in assignment step B2
B3 refers to the development of a logical argument and use of quotes from the articles to support it (step B3)
B4 refers to the use of APA style citation (both in-text on on the references page -- step B4)
B5 refers to style points (grammar, margins, font, heading, etc. -- step B5)
Generally, green marks are good, whereas red marks indicate a correction is needed.
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 (A1-B5)
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
