Course Writing Assignment – At the end of the course you must submit a 1,100 to 1,300 word writing assignment. The question you must answer with this writing assignment is, “How have you changed as a person while earning your degree at the University of Toledo?” Look back on who you were as a person when you started your degree. Who were you in terms of maturity, aspirations, knowledge, and self-confidence? What did you plan to do with your degree and in what field did you plan to major? Then contrast that picture with who you are today. How are you different today, in terms of what you know and what you aspire to do with your life? How are you different today in terms of maturity and self-confidence? What experiences, courses, friends, or professors at the University of Toledo influenced these changes? These are the things your paper needs to describe.
As this is a senior level course, and you are about to graduate, you should be writing like a college graduate. Therefore, I will expect perfect writing. I do not want you to go out into the world and embarrass UT by having one of our degrees but being unable to write correctly. The topic is easy – you do not need to go study some subject, as the subject is you. No references are needed, just write about your experiences. The length is easy – only 1,100 to 1,300 words (please, no more and no less). I will expect your grammar, spelling, and punctuation, however, to be perfect if you expect to receive a passing grade on this assignment.
This assignment must use 12-point, Times New Roman font, be double-spaced, and use 1-inch margins on all sides. Do not use a cover page, just put your name at the top of the first page.
Below is the grading criterion I will use for this paper.
+10 points – No grammatical errors found
+10 points – No punctuation errors found.
