Tips for writing:
Use the 4 aspects of your province listed above to organize your paper. Use the topics in parentheses to guide your discussion, but you do not need to address all (or any!) of them. DO address each of the 4 aspects for your province, though.
Avoid using lots of direct quotes; instead paraphrase information from sources into your own words. Be sure to cite your sources. If you cite a source within the paper, you can use the following format: “According to Smith (2010), this is the information”; or “This is the information (Smith, 2010).”
Grammar, spelling, and punctuation do count.
Content: Address all 4 aspects clearly
Research: Include supporting evidence from reputable sources, referenced in proper format
Language: Proper use of grammar; effective word and language choices
Originality: Demonstrates knowledge by using original language, with minimal use of long direct quotations.
