Using the Template

I have been reading your revisions of your assignment concerning cultural relativism. While many students papers have improved (GREAT!), many students did not use the template, as you were asked to use:
If you did not use the template, I am going to ask you to revise your assignment so that you use the template. Please keep the headings / outline labels in the document. In many cases, this will improve the organization even more. So, again, download that file and use it to structure your paper. 

Another thing to keep in mind is that you should not write anything that would be unclear to the reader (who is lazy, stupid, and mean -- http://www.jimpryor.net/teaching/guidelines/writing.html). So, as one example of this, you should not write, for example, anything like, "In section 2.2 this topic is discussed," and go on from there. You should not do this because your reader will have no idea what you are talking about. So you need to always keep your audience in mind and explain in a manner that your reader will understand.

New revisions that conform to the directions and Pryor's guidance are due Monday. I also strongly encourage everyone to visit Morehouse's Writing Center for this assignment and any other: http://philosophy302.blogspot.com/2013/09/morehouse-writing-center.html
