Here is what the teacher is looking for.
Your essay questions are in the Reading Guides for each chapter.
I will pick 3 out of the 4 questions from your chapter reading guides. On the Exam, you will have to pick 1 of the 3 to write on.
If I were you, I would pre-write on 2 questions, that way you have at least 1 question covered and the best would be both questions will be on there.
Remember that you will only write on one (1) question for the exam.
Advise for your essay
DO NOT: Copy paragraphs from your book but try to explain concepts in your own words, this is the true measure of understanding; if you can explain something in your own words.
DO: You should have been pre-writing your essays after you read each chapter.
How I will grade:
Zero to 40 points: F; You wrote something and were close but you didn’t answer all of the question.
40 to 50 points: F; You kinda answered the question and some of what you wrote was correct but off target.
50 to 70 points: D; You had some of the material but didn’t explain it well; it was not logically explained but the information was partly there.
70 to 80 points: C; You answered the basic question but lack examples and your response was satisfactory.
80 to 90 points: B; Your answer was good and had some examples and explanations.
90 to 100 points: A; Your essay covered the questions and had examples, was logically organized and your response flowed from one point to another.
