INSTRUCTIONS: To help me quickly and accurately
evaluate your essays, I ask you to follow the few rules outlined
must be written in Microsoft Word (only): Make the page setup of your Microsoft
Word processor letter size (margins: 1 inch top and bottom; 1.0 inch left
and right), using Helvetica 10 points or a similar sans-serif font (e.g.
Arial or Helvetica), all text must be justified (DO NOT hyphenate words);
text should be formatted to line space at exactly 10 pt., indent 3 spaces
the first line of each paragraph.
The first page
of your essay should be its title page, which should be in bold, Upper
and Lower Case, and Flush Left with the Margin. After the title skip several
lines and type your name first, followed below by your SS#. Capitalize
the LAST NAME, FIRST NAME and MIDDLE NAME or INITIAL. Next type the course
and reference #. Suggestion: You can be creative with the title page inserting
a color image between the title and your name lines.
