Helpful Hints for Writing Assignments - To help you with the two writing assignments

Cognitive Writing Assignment # 1 - Due on the date and time posted on Isidore. You are to submit this paper online with the Isidore Assignments Tool. Important Update: The assignment says that your paper should be at least 3 pages in length but no more than 6 pages. It's okay if your paper is more than 6 pages long. However, the 3 page minimum is absolutely necessary; in fact, I think it would be hard to write a good paper in less than 4 pages. Finally, DO NOT just write answers to the questions—you're to write a paper in which those questions are addressed but remember you're writing an essay not just answering questions. Your paper will be graded on how thoroughly and how well you address all of those points AND how well you write and communicate your thoughts and insights.
