The Two-Page Limit

I received an e-mail asking how firm I intend to be about the two-page limit for Thursday’s assignment.

The short version of the answer is “pretty firm.”

The long version of the answer is that you should consider two pages to be a firm lower limit — go much more than a paragraph under two pages, and you’re not likely to get full credit for having completed the assignment.

The upper limit is slightly more flexible. Take three pages, if you feel like you need the space. But I do not want more than that — I don’t grade by volume. If you can’t get it in three, get some help editing. If you can’t find someone to help you edit, come by during office hours (I am available Wednesday afternoon) and ask for help, or send me e-mail.
