Grading Criteria. Essays will be evaluated in terms of the following expectations:
1. Focus–the essay does what is assigned—that is, you follow instructions (see above)
2. Facts–the essay supplies a sufficient summary of the empirical case you selected to investigate, offering details that are appropriate, vivid, and sufficient for the analysis.
3. Theory–the essay defines concepts accurately and relates them clearly and in sufficient detail to the total theory. [This is the key criterion.]
4. Authority—the essay supports its positions with appropriate quotation from the theorist
5. Insight–fact and theory are combined to explicate the problem and offer a solution
6. Critical Thinking—you engage with the theories critically, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses as a possible theoretical frame for explaining the article’s facts and analysis
7. Effectiveness in expression and organization–you find a clear and compelling way to make your argument, remembering that you are writing as a public sociologist for a general educated audience. (This means clear organization, word choice and sentence structure and typographical devices like sidebars, boldface and italics to create a reader friendly document.)
A late paper will be penalized 5 points.
