Michigan State University Finding Our Voice Installation Discussion

Michigan State University Finding Our Voice Installation Discussion

This week you have an outside of class activity. You will be attending the Finding Our Voice installation at the MSU Museum.

Complete a reflection of your experience. Your reflection should be 1-page single spaced and should integrate both the experience of attending the exhibit AND course material (you can pull from any of our books for this). Be clear in the connections you make to demonstrate that you attended the exhibit and that you can relate it to class material.

I’ll upload the Photos I took from the museum and some course materials shortly.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
