What exactly is your assignment. When is it due?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
due on next week friday


1. Process-Analysis Essay

Objective: To prepare a how-to process-analysis essay of 600

to 800 words that incorporates illustration or narration.

Topic: How to balance Penn Foster studies with work

and/or family demands

Pattern of Development: Process analysis in combination

with illustration or narration

To describe your decision-making process, include specific

personal experiences using strategies from illustration or

narration. All or most of the essay must use proper

paragraphing rather than bulleted or numbered lists.

Purpose: To inform readers about how you achieve

2. Causal-Analysis Essay

Objective: To prepare a causal-analysis essay of 750
to 1,000 words that incorporates definition and classification.

Topic: Consequences of a college student cheating on exams
Cheating comes in many varieties. Someone may copy a math
problem from another student’s assignment. Another might
pay a person to complete his homework for him. A common
reason for cheating is a desire to complete a course or program
quickly. Based on that reason (cause) for college students
cheating, analyze the effects of such cheating (what happens
as a result of the occurrence). Who is affected by the cheating
and how are they affected?

3. Course Journal
Your course journal should be completed already, since it
was assigned as part of each lesson. Before you prepare the
file and turn in your journal, read it through and make sure
it’s presented in a way that will be easily understood by your
instructor. Remember, the emphasis is on its content—your
thought processes and ideas, rather than structure and conventions—
but it still must be understandable.

Review the “Evaluation of Your Course Journal” section in the
appendix, including the Course Journal Evaluation Chart,
which will be used to grade your exam. Since the journal
counts as 30 percent of your final grade, it’s important to
make sure you include all 15 entries in the required format
and with the necessary content.
