PHI2010 Homework template.docx Use the attached template to format your homework assignments. All homework must be submitted as a .doc or .pdf file. Each student’s work will be checked for plagiarism. Plagiarism, intentional or not, will result in a 0 for the assignment and will be reported to the Department Chair. Each assignment must be structured as follows (use the provided template): Start with a one to two sentence thesis statement that explicitly states your answer to the topic question. The reader should understand exactly where you stand on the topic just by reading these sentences. (5 points) Include ONE direct quotation from the text book that supports your position on the topic. You may quote the text book author, but it is preferable to cite one of the author’s of the primary readings in the relevant chapter. Explain the relevance of the quote to your thesis (10 points) Explain the support your thesis statement. Be detailed. Provide examples as appropriate. Refer to ideas in the text. Demonstrate an understanding of the philosophical issues. Any information taken from any source in this section should be paraphrased, not quoted. (25 points) In addition, you must use proper grammar (5 points) and provide citations and references for any resources you use (5 points). The only resource that is required is the text book, but any source used–including the text book–must be properly cited and a reference provided. Wikipedia is not an acceptable source, and any source used other than the text book must be scholarly (see the Course Resource folder). Adequate answers to the questions should be between 250 and 500 words. No specific penalty will be imposed for length. The quality of the answer is more important than the quantity.
