Thank God we can double space it! I had this evil history teacher who made us 1.5 space everything. The book still blows though.

For now, I think the heading can be however you did it in high school. I was never wrong doing the MLA
NAME
Prof. NAME (This is your FYS prof.)
ASSIGNMENT
DATE

Single spaced in the heading. 12 pt. TNR should work.

and again, i can't express how much your professors REALLY WON'T CARE, so long as it's neat and doesn't consist of one word repeated for three pages [even then, you probably wouldn't get much more than made fun of a lot]. this is the only, i repeat, the ONLY paper you will write for a college course that doesn't matter. enjoy it!

I don't have to write a paper though, however I have to discuss in in depth with several professors before all you get here though.

Wait, seriously?

I wanted to write something like my papers for AP English (the literary analyses), but I didn't know how I could do that. The thing is, though, since it's translated, I'm not sure how accurate it would be if I was like, "he chose this word because blah blah..."

So you're saying I could analyze a short chapter instead of reacting on the entire book? Because my reaction when I finished was this: "..."


ETA: If I were to write on my gut reaction, I'd feel bad sending in a negative paper, you know what I mean? I don't want to seem like Debbie Downer, haha.

I do believe that we're supposed to email it to commonreading@drew.edu

Correct me if I'm wrong though.

Don't ever feel bad about writing a negative paper in college. For any class, it doesn't matter what you write, as long as it's thoughtful and backed-up. So go ahead and say you thought it was a bad book, as long as the paper is more than "it...was about chemistry, and chemistry is boring."

I echo Zach.

Also, if you can give a reasoned argument as to why your reaction was "..." then do it. If you guys disliked/ had as much trouble with as you say, Drew should know that. You'll also be able to express that during the discussion sections I'm pretty sure you'll be having.

welcome to college, where when you hate something and say so eloquently enough, you'll probably find that the teacher actually agrees with you
