Paper 1: Summary Our first few weeks of class have been devoted to summaries, and the practice of writing effective, informative synopses of longer texts. In each class session, we have discussed how to read an article or essay to extract its major points, how to phrase those points in your own words, how to organize those points logically, and how to ensure that your summary accurately reflects the contents of the original text. We have also focused on the importance of summaries for academic work, as they allow readers to understand the key elements of a significant issue or phenomenon, and allow writers to test their knowledge of a text by explaining its main points in brief. For this assignment, you will write a summary of either Lee Ross and Richard E. Nisbett’s “The Power of Situations” (WRAC, 579-582) or Solomon E. Asch’s “Opinions and Social Pressure” Your summary should clearly restate the central claim or thesis of the essay you select, go through the essay’s subordinate claims that support that thesis, and provide a few brief examples that illustrate those claims. Remember that you are not to offer your opinion on the essay – rather, you are summarizing the contents of the essay, without making your own arguments about those contents. Things to Keep in Mind When writing your summary, ask yourself the following questions: • Does this summary begin by stating the thesis of the essay you’ve chosen? • Does that statement of the thesis clearly communicate the central argument of the entire essay? That is, does it give the reader a firm sense of what the whole essay is about? • Are the subordinate points you’ve provided the most significant points within the essay that support the essay’s thesis? • Are the examples you’ve chosen important to understanding the essay’s argument? • Is the summary organized logically, with each idea clearly building upon its predecessor? • Is the summary clearly written, and free of grammatical errors? These will be the questions I ask as I evaluate your summary, so keep them in mind as you’re writing. You should also look over them again once you’ve finished the summary, and make any revisions you might need before submitting the final summary for a grade. Formal Requirements Papers should be 2-3 full pages long (no less, and not significantly more), typed in 12-point, Times New Roman font, and double-spaced. All papers must include a list of works cited, and all in-text citations should be provided in MLA format.

ECNS 203 – Principles of Economics Extra Credit Instructions – Fall 2015 As we are winding down our semester, I have decided to integrate some current events into our econ studies. Much is going on in the world oil market that pertains directly to what we have been studying this semester – related to both micro and macroeconomics. Therefore, I have decided to offer an extra credit opportunity for you if you are willing to do some research, summarize your findings in a short paper, and bring it to class on Tuesday, December 1st ready to discuss. To earn the extra credit complete the following: 1. Do some research on current issues (last 12 months) discussing world oil supply, demand and pricing. 2. Write a short (300 word minimum) paper on your findings relative to the micro and macro-economic issues found in your research. I especially want you to focus on the following questions: a. Why has the oil price dropped so much? b. Will it stay down? Why or Why Not? c. Does our discussion on production costs and decisions on running plants relevant to this issue? Why? d. Who are the winners and losers from a micro and macro-economic perspective? 3. Bring that paper to class with you on Tuesday, December 1st to submit it to me and discuss your findings. If you complete all three steps, I will award you with 10 extra credit points to be added to your total points earned for the semester. This will be in addition to the up to 20 extra credit points earned by answering the Clicker Questions correctly. Late submittals will not be accepted and you must be in attendance to receive the points. Papers given little to no effort will not be awarded points. In other words, don’t submit a bunch of non-sense and expect credit. Cite your resources using whatever style you prefer.
