Delinquency

All homework assignment must be written in an academic tone. You are not to write in the first person. Instead you need to use third person. Remember, an academic essay is not to be written like you are having a casual conversation with your friends. Do not include slang or foul language unless you are quoting someone.

Large word-for-word quotes are not permitted as well. Direct quotes, if used need to be only a sentence or two long. Instead, most cited material needs to be paraphrased. For more information on properly citing sources in your assignments please refer to the APA 6th edition manual. While the assignments are to include an examination on current research of a particular problem, they also need include the student’s careful and informed analysis of the problem.

Remember each assignment must be submitted as a Word Doc attachment. The assignment needs be written in 12’ font, using Times Roman. Margins will also need to be 1’.

The student should download the assignment document and should follow the directions for each separate project. Each assignment should be completed and uploaded as an attachment to the professor in the student’s Student Folder by the due date as a WORD DOC. Please submit these assignments as attachments and save them as under their assignment designation, i.e. assignment 1, assignment 2 ect., and your fist and last name.

  • Each      assignment will need to include the following:
  • The      original question at the top of the essay (serves as the abstract)
  • The      body of your answer in several paragraphs
  • A      titled reference section that has been formatted according to APA 6th      ed style.
  • A      minimum of two references per assignment. One reference can include the      textbook. However, you will need to include several additional academic      sources. These sources should consist of scholarly journals that      have been peer reviewed and academically based books. Web sources      can be used, though they should come from credible sources such as      government agencies, academics and private agencies with a strong      reputation within the community they serve. You will not be allowed      to use web pages or web groups such as Wikipedia found at http://www.wikipedia.org/      and Answers.com, as the information      contained in these web pages are academically questionable. You cannot use      web pages of a questionable background or academic source.

Furthermore, you will not be permitted to cite encyclopedias, dictionaries, newspapers (unless otherwise permitted) and popular magazines. It is important to remember that this is an undergraduate level class and you are required to submit graduate level work, which is backed up by academically credible material. If you have a question about the quality of a potential resource please e-mail your professor.

Most of this material that you need for your assignments can be found in the AMU library. You are encouraged to use the library to locate the needed material. Additionally, at the bottom of this syllabus is a list of acceptable organizations and groups found on the World Wide Web which you can use to find material for your assignments.
