Critical Essay, by Linda Hutcheon.
1. Please type or neatly print your assignments.
2. On a separate title page, please provide a unique (and interesting) title that reflects the topic; your name & student number; my name; and the date.
3. Do not put your name on the body of the essay. Your essay's title and your student number are my keys to your identity once I've finished grading. Please put the paper's title and your student number at the top of EACH page; number each page at the top right.
4. Please use a paper clip rather than a stapler to hold the paper's pages together. I do comments on the word processor, and it is easier for me to attach them to your essay if I don't have to chew off the staple.

porter. Do not slide it under
the door of my office: if you have read Tess of the d'Urbervilles, you

In order to give penalty-free extensions for medical or personal reasons, I
do need to see
documentation that covers the relevant dates--doctor's note, police
report, fire insurance claim, father's hospital bracelet, grandmother's
obituary,etc. If you
would rather not reveal details to me, you can get your college registrar
to write me a letter. If you find yourself in extended distress for any
reason, it is a good idea to let your registrar know: they can help you, and they can communicate
with your instructors.
