Q: Do you have requirements for the research paper's font, margins, cover page.
A: As the Syllabus states, I require only 2,000-2,500 words (not including references). I don't have requirements for font, or margins, spacing, or cover page.
Q. Will you review an outline of the paper?
A: I don't review and comment on students' draft papers, outlines, etc. That becomes overwhelming in a class this size and it is hard to balance that kind of reviewing across the class to be fair to all students. So, I give all students a chance to present and I comment on that. Or, if a student missed her/his presentation, you can send me your PPT and I will comment.
But, I will also answer specific questions students have about their topic and provide suggestions on research.
