“Explain why an inscription should be studied as a written text, and how it can also be studied as part of the material record. Answer the same question in regard to a fragment of papyrus.”
your essay should have at least 4 paragraphs (including an introduction and conclusion). The rubric for grading is as follows:
5 points: includes the question you are answering, copied from the textbook
7 points: states a clear argument (a thesis statement) in the first paragraph, the introduction.
5 points: uses primary sources from the textbook; you can paraphrase, or quote, or summarize the primary sources.
5 points: makes accurate references to dates, figures, and terms in the textbook. Refer to these important details to make your argument, and as evidence to support your argument.
2 points: organization: one idea leads to the next
3 points: mechanics: spelling and grammar
3 points: includes a conclusion that is not highly redundant and does NOT repeat what has already been stated. Your conclusion is a good place to make a new, but related, point. The new but related point should help summarize what you said, and clarify what you said (but not simply repeat what you already said).
