The paper may conclude with recommendations but at the very least it should provide a clear summary statement about the challenges facing your country or region DUE WEEK15 Sample Assignments Landscape Architecture 3XX Design Critique Critical yet often overlooked components of the landscape architect s professional skills are the ability to critically evaluate existing designs and the ability to eloquently express him herself in writing To develop your skills at these fundamental components you are to professionally critique a built project with which you are personally and directly familiar The critique is intended for the informed public as might be expected to be read in such features in The New York Times or Columbus Monthly therefore it should be insightful and professionally valid yet also entertaining and eloquent It should reflect a sophisticated knowledge of the subject without being burdened with professional jargon As in most critiques or reviews you are attempting not only to identify the project s good and bad features but also to interpret the project s significance and meaning As such the critique should have a clear point of view or thesis that is then supported by evidence your description of the place that persuades the reader that your thesis is valid Note however that your primary goal is not to force the reader to agree with your point of view but rather to present a valid discussion that enriches and broadens the reader s understanding of the project To assist in the development of the best possible paper you are to submit a typed draft by 1 00 pm Monday February 10th The drafts will be reviewed as a set and will then serve as a basis of an in class writing improvement seminar on Friday February 14th The seminar will focus on problems identified in the set of drafts so individual papers will not have been commented on or marked You may also submit a typed draft of your paper to the course instructor for review and comment at any time prior to the final submission Final papers are due at 2 00 pm Friday February 23rd Sample Assignments Animal Dairy Poultry Science 2XX Comparative Animal Nutrition Purpose Students should be able

points total will be possible for the first draft another five points possible will be given to a student peer reviewer of the draft and five final points will be available for a second draft This assignment in its entirety will be due before the first midterm class 20 Any major writing flaws will be addressed early so that students can grasp concepts stressed by the instructors without major impact on their grades Additional objectives are to provide students with skills in critically reviewing papers and to acquaint writers and reviewers of the instructors expectations for assignments 2 and 3 which are weighted much more heavily Students will submit seven one page handwritten reports from each week s previous laboratory These reports will cover laboratory classes 2 9 note that one report can be dropped and week 10 has no laboratory Reports will be graded 5 points each by the instructors for integration of relevant lecture material or prior experience with the current laboratory Assignment 2 Group problem solving approach to a nutritional problem in the animal industry 50 points Students will be divided into groups of four Several problems will be offered by the instructors but a group can choose an alternative approved topic Students should propose a solution to the problem Because most real life problems are solved by groups of employees and or consultants this exercise should provide students an opportunity to practice skills they will need after graduation Groups will divide the assignment as they see fit However 25 points will be based on an individual s separate assignment 1 2 typed pages and 25 points will be based on the group s total document Thus it is assumed that papers will be peer reviewed The audience intended will be marketing directors who
