Formatting of mini-papers:
– Please put the prompt to which you are responding at the top of the paper. It will not count against
your word limit.
– Please make sure your paper is 12 point font, times new roman, single spaced.
– We encourage you not to put your name on the document. We use Carmen’s anonymous grading
feature; therefore, including names defeats this goal.
– Cite the readings to which you are referring – either by referencing the author or using end-citations
(Zakaria p. 24).
Writing advice for mini-papers:
– It is important to not just repeat the information from the readings. Ideally, the prompts encourage
you to make an argument, and you then use information from the readings to support your case.
With the word limit, we would rather you spend most of the time explaining your argument in detail.
Strong papers not only explain their argument, but briefly consider counter-arguments.
– While it is not a requirement to go to 400 words – most Check +’s tend to be in the 300-400 range. It
is difficult to sufficiently address a prompt in less than 250-300 words.
– Please do not be overly reliant on quotes. The general rule is that it’s better to use your own words
– There is no need for “introductions”, feel free to jump right into the prompt.
Mini-papers have three purposes. They provide a way for me to give credit for careful class preparation;
they give you the opportunity to clarify your thinking by practicing analytic writing; and they prepare
you for the quizzes. Mini-papers are typed and are not longer than half a page, single-spaced, using
standard margins and a font size of 12 (400 words max). If a mini-paper is not handed in on time, or if
you hand in a mini-paper from the wrong block, you will receive no credit for it. Please note that all
submissions will be screened for potential plagiarism.
The mini-papers ask you a question about the assigned reading(s) and you will write a short composition
that supports your answer to the question. To do this successfully, you must be able to support your
answer with textual evidence, and guard against the tendency to ignore textual evidence that might
undermine your thesis. The main objectives of this assignment are to develop your skills at a) thinking
through complex texts that do not always provide simple answers, and b) writing a focused argument.
There will be more than one persuasive answer to the question I ask. Thus the criteria for a mini-paper
are: (1) Clarity: do you make your supporting points clear? (2) Precision and accuracy: do you draw
your supporting points from specific places in the text, using quotation marks and page numbers
appropriately, and do you make correct assertions about the text? (3) Comprehensiveness and balance:
have you identified the textual passages important to this question? (4) Organization: do you present
your arguments in a coherent order with smooth transitions and grammatical sentences?
Prompt: Discuss some of the pros and cons of different approaches to explain democratization. Which approach do you find most convincing and why?

When I first discovered this website I was hesitant on whether they will deliver a plag free paper. The support team reassured me of their plagiarism policy. In deed they kept their word as the paper I got was authentic and plagiarism free.
