How do the assigned readings relate to the themes and issues of the topics covered
Substantive Requirements: The questions you must address in your responses are few, however, they require direct answers as well as concise explication: 1) How do the assigned readings relate to the themes and issues of the topics covered? Explain. 2) What claims do the authors make? 3) Do the readings clarify or confound your understanding of the census/es and the consequences of classification regarding identity and community? Explain.
1. Each paper must meet the substantive and page length requirements of the assignment.
2. Each paper must employ the conventions of proper academic writing: NO contractions, abbreviations, idioms, clichés, platitudes, slang/colloquialisms, or the like; do NOT use “I” (first person voice) or “you/your” (second person voice). Grammar, syntax, mechanics, and spelling DO COUNT. (SEE Grading Scale & Explanation below)
3. You must footnote any quotations or paraphrases using the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) format only. The use of any other citation format (MLA, APA, or ASA, for example) will result in a significant grade reduction.
4. Use short direct quotations and paraphrases sparingly and only to support your claims. NO FOOTNOTES, NO GRADE, NO RE-WRITE. (SEE Academic Honesty Policy below)
–Each paper must be typed and a minimum of two full pages, maximum three pages.
