GUIDELINES FOR ESSAY ASSIGNMENT Format: • Use a 12 -point font, and double space your text • Title the file with your last name Length: • This essay should be between 600 -700 words • Title pages , citations and your reference list are not included in the word count In -text c itations and References page : • APA style is required for your in -text citations and reference list • If you are not familiar with APA style, this website s hould help: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ • If you are using the course notes, you cite them lik e you would any other website in APA style. • Failure to cite your sources is plagiarism, and may result in an automatic 0 on an assignment. • You must reference your sources in the text and prov ide a complete list of references cited. All material used must be referenced, wh ether it consists of an actual quote or whether you have paraphrased a source; this includes the online notes. • Simply providing a list of references at the end of yo ur essay in insufficient. Tips: • Always define terms very early on. People have differ ent ideas about certain words and phrases, so tell the reader how you are using them i n your essay. • Be wary of which websites you consult. If you use i nformation from an unreliable source you’re likely to go off track or write things that simply are not accurate. In Anthropology, things have changed significantly over the past few years and many sites are not current, in spite of their ‘Last Updated On’ dates. • Essays are about demonstrating your understanding of the topic. Keep this in mind as you write. Always ask yourself how what you are writing is linked to the topic and how it shows the reader that you understand the material. M ake those points clear and explicit. Readers should never have to guess at what you mean or how it is related to the questio n. • Justify your statements. If you write something like, “ Cultural adaptations help us survive in different environments ” you need to follow that up with an explanation of why that is true. Simply stating it doesn’t demonstrate that you understand why that is the case. Short essay assignment Topic: How did “culture” impact the course of hominid evolution ; how did the changing cultural behaviour of early Homo influence biological evolution , resulting in modern Homo sapiens? Make sure that you include two to three specific examples of ways in which culture has changed the course of our evolutionary path from Arch aic to modern, and explain clearly how the examples you cite demonstrate the point you are ma king. This assignment is broken up into two stages (see course sche dule for due dates): Stage 1 • Write an introductory paragraph for the essay and very brie fly (point form is fine) outline the examples you plan to use in the full essay. You must c ite at least two different sourc es in the text , and include a properly formatted reference list at the end. All of this can be done o n a single page . • This is designed to make sure that you are on the ri ght track with the content of your essay, and that you know how to correctly reference your material. • You will get feedback on this at least a week before the next stage is due. Stage 2 • Write a 600-700 word essay , using the introductory paragraph you started in Stage 1. Suggestions: • First, what is culture? How are you going to def ine it for the purposes of the essay? • Think about the various aspects of culture that make up the ancient hominin adaptive strategy. • Do use examples from throughout the course material provi ded. I want to see that you’ve read the material and that you can pick out s ome of the key developments in hominid evolution that were related to cultural adaptations. • Explain your examples. Don’t just say “This is an ex ample of culture influencing evolution” – tell me why how this fits with the topic; tell me wh at changed because of this cultural behaviour. • Do not confuse “cultural evolution” with “culture influencin g evolution” – they are not synonymous. Cultural evolution is about how culture changed over time. This essay is about biocultural evolution – how cultural behaviours resulted in physiological and biological changes in the hominid line and not just how culture has shifted.
