Single Idea Development
For this assignment, students write a one-page development of a specific idea. The idea should be clearly articulated, have adequate examples and logic for proof and should be placed into some meaningful context.
This assignment involves more sustained writing and allows you to judge the student’s capacity to express ideas in fully written form. For suggestions on how to grade assignments like this in ways that will safeguard your time and still allow you to provide students with prompt and helpful feedback, see the next section on grading.
