Type of Paper: This is a research paper, not an opinion essay. Your job is to display the available evidence, cite it properly, and make your conclusions based on that evidence. Due Date: Papers are due November 14 by 11:59 pm Papers more than one week late will not be accepted Submission: Students will submit all papers electronically via Blackboard which will automatically submit to TurnItIn (without need of a password) -On Blackboard: Go to Paper Assignment, Paper Submission, then submit as an attached file.

It will be in the bottom, right-hand side, and will be a file with your name on it. There will also be comments made directly on your paper Late Assignments: 2 points out of the total of 30 will be deducted for each day that an assignment is late. No exceptions other than for SERIOUS and DOCUMENTED reasons. (Doctors notes, notes from funeral home directors etc. MUST be provided for an exemption to be considered). This means that is may be simpler for you to just decide to do a later topic than provide an excuse for missing a due date. No papers will be accepted if they are over seven days late, unless substantiated with medical or other documentation. Content: All information must be properly cited in APA format. The paper will include information from: 1)The Film Anthropocene must be used.

To find this, go to, click on the “Articles” tab, search, download the article/articles that best suit your paper. 3)You MAY use government websites, news, or magazine articles only if the information used is not already available in peer-reviewed journals and you must have already used your minimum number of peer-reviewed journals. 4)You MAY use the course textbook as a source, but this is not required. 5)Lecture notes are NOT acceptable as a source. 6)There is a marking rubric at the end of this document. This rubric must be copied and pasted to your paper after the bibliography.
