consider how Marx might respond. Tips for writing a good paper: – Be sure to keep your paper focused: don’t introduce extraneous material. Your goal is not to summarize the entire reading, but to reconstruct and explain a small portion of it. – Strive for clarity, accuracy, and precision. This
often requires going beyond what’s explicitly stated in the text, identifying tacit assumptions, hidden premises, and so forth. A good paper is clearer, more accurate, and more precise than the text that it explains (otherwise, we could simply read the original). – Quotations should be used sparingly.
If you do quote a passage, be sure to explain it in your own words. Grading: Some of the things that we look for in assessing a paper: clear writing; logical paper organization; depth of analysis and critique; fair, accurate, and charitable reconstruction of arguments; adequate defense of claims.
