If the paper is fully typed with concrete details highlighted and in-text references inserted correctly, continue reading.  If not finished with work from Monday/Tuesday, return to yesterday’s link.  

Today, plan to submit the final paper with the highlighted works cited page before class ends.  Today is the final day.

To combine the paper with the works cited, insert a hard return (ctrl+enter) after the conclusion paragraph.  Open Noodle Tools and export the works cited to Word – Copy and Paste the works cited to the new page created by the hard return below the essay.  Is the document saved as lastname.firstnameHR (Parker.Sam1).

New Highlighting for Today – Highlight each source in the Works Cited page to match each sources’ CDs already highlighted in the paper; DO NOT highlight any commentary.  Remember, if a URL shows up as the generated (In-Text) reference, an author or title is missing.  Fix this.

Review the grading criteria below.  If it is short of  the 400 word minimum, go back to each concrete detail and elaborate on the key point and consider adding additional commentary answering why or how is this detail important or what does this mean?
