Also take into account the general trend in public support of the death penalty and the effectiveness of capital punishment in comparison to long prison sentences or other forms of punishment.

Write clearly and pay close attention to spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, the structure of your answers (paragraphs), and accuracy in general. If you suspect your writing skills can be improved by a visit to the Writing Center, do not hesitate to make an appointment or to drop by the Center’s office.

The thought behind the essay is to test your ability to show an understanding of the course material IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Make sure that at least 80% of your writing consist of your words and your analysis. Thus, NO excessive quoting and NO excessive paraphrasing. When you think a short citation from a text could strengthen your analysis, it is important to be accurate with the citation. In order to prevent plagiarism, whenever you use a theory, an idea, or data in general (including from graphs and tables) that are not yours, you need to give the correct source of your writings.
