Grading: This is mostly a pass/fail assignment.Mostly? You can earn either a 90 or a 100, or you fail and earn a zero. However, you can submit the essay more than once if need be. In fact, I encourage you to submit a rough draft to me so I canmake corrections and suggestions before submitting the final draft to be graded. If you do not pass, I will return the essay to you and you can try again. Up until the final due date. If you pass, youwill automatically earn a 90, unless your essay is exceptional. It would need to be extremely well-researched, carefully constructed, and properly cited, with no spelling or grammar errors. See thereverse side of this paper for the detailed rubric.
