4C Assignments

Writing the Report
4C assignments are analysis and a report, not essays. For the most part, you will not be writing a great deal of prose in this document. For large sections of the paper, you will simply list information using headings, brief paragraphs, and lists. However, the instructions request that you provide some brief commentary and critical analysis of the information you are listing. I strongly recommend that you use headers to indicate each of the required element and commentary sections. This will make it much easier for others to grade and will improve your score.

In some cases, there may be much more information available than you can realistically include in your 4C document. In this situation, use the required page count (given in each assignment) as a guide for when to cut back. DO NOT WRITE EXTRA. When deciding what to cut, be sure to include content for most or all the requested information rather than fill up the entire space with one topic.
A great deal of this paper will be copied and pasted from external sources. To avoid plagiarism, you will need to cite your sources using footnotes. Simply place the URL or source title in the footnotes at the bottom of the page and place a numeral after the quoted content.

The paper should be 1.15 spaced. MAKE THE DOCUMENT BEAUTIFUL, a joy to read! Your first priority is making it easy to draw information from the document! Your paper should remain anonymous so do not include your name.
