When I grade these papers I will be looking for the following:1)    OrganizationI want to see that you can present your ideas in a clear and organized way.2)    Introduction: I want to see purpose like for example (In this paper I will discuss )3)    Detailresearch (and really any) papers require a close eye to detail.  I understand that we are not all wordsmiths, but that doesnt mean that we dont have to properly take the time to read and check our work.  4)    Consistencyyou must use citations to correctly reference your work.  5)    Timealthough these papers are not long, I want to see that you took this project seriously and spent the time to adequately research your writing.  This goes beyond organization, detail, and consistency.  I want to see that time was taken to thoroughly and properly execute the research of your particular topic.
