GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS: To help me quickly and accurately evaluate  your essays, I ask you to follow the few rules outlined below.

Essays  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.

Start the text of your essay in a separate page. You can start with an introduction or introductory paragraph of you own but after this short introduction you must use the headings given in the guidelines for preparing essays. Indent 3 spaces the first line of each paragraph. 


ONLY ELECTRONIC SUBMITTAL IS ALLOWED.  All  essays should be sent to Prof. Jose F. Longoria,  clearly indicating the sender's e-mail address. You should be notified of the receipt of the essay, you should contact me if you did not receive a receipt of the essay notification within the following three days.
